I just wanted to give everyone a heads up on things happening here so there was no confusion when the DC April 2013 solicitations went public.
Obviously I’m disappointed, but I also know this isn’t any kind of personal judgement about me, it’s a business and creative decision that came late in the process. I’ve been working in and around the comic industry for the past ten years and know it can be a wild ride. This is still a step forward for my career, just not as big of one as I’d hoped.
I want to thank the DC editorial staff who worked with me over the past few months as we developed stories, characters and plot lines: Mike Marts, Rachel Gluckstern and Rickey Purdin. I want to give a special thank you to Bobbie Chase for asking me to pitch on Birds of Prey and championing my approach. I knew I was a bit of a dark horse going into the race and she gave me a chance to show what I could do.
Even though this didn’t work out the way I planned, I feel fortunate I was able to put my best foot forward. I’m hopeful about other writing opportunities to come in 2013 and am optimistic about comics as a whole.
Thank you for your support and encouragement. It means everything and keeps me plugging away looking to the next goal.
