Well, Wizard has postponed Wizard World Springfield until late 2018, so I’ve decided to attend Air Capital Comiccon in Wichita, Kansas the weekend of November 11-12.
Wichita is the closest thing to a hometown I suppose I have, and I don’t spend enough time there these days, so it’ll be nice to get back. Here’s hoping the weather is friendly:
The SAVAGE trade paperback is scheduled to drop in late April. In case you missed the solicitation, behold:
Written by B. CLAY MOORE
Art by CLAYTON HENRY and LEWIS LAROSA
Cover by LEWIS LAROSA
Fifteen years ago, the world’s most famous soccer star and his former supermodel wife – pregnant with their unborn child – disappeared without a trace. The world believes they are dead… But, in reality, their private jet crash-landed on a mysterious, unknown island ruled by prehistoric creatures from another time…
This is the story of how they lost their humanity.
Acclaimed writer B. Clay Moore (Hawaiian Dick), and explosive artists Clayton Henry (Archer & Armstrong) and Lewis LaRosa (Bloodshot Reborn) present a relentless epic of survival in a cold-blooded land ruled by instinct alone in the must-read debut of Valiant’s next major hero!
Collecting SAVAGE #1-4.

TRADE PAPERBACK | ISBN: 978-1-68215-189-1
In the meantime, if you happen to be in Manhattan, Kansas on Saturday, March 18th, drop into the K-State Student Union for the second Little Apple Comic Expo.
I’ll be there hanging with my fellow Bad Karmites, Alex Grecian, Seth Peck and Jeremy Haun. And we won’t be the only ones:
Should be a good time.
Just got back from an excellent Baltimore Comic-Con. Primarily hung at the Valiant booth, with their top-notch marketing guys.
Bleeding Cool covered the books discussed at the Valiant panel here:
I’m not very good at taking pictures during cons these days, but here are a handful of shots from the weekend, anyway:
Fred Van Lente scowls in front of the SAVAGE banner at the Valiant booth.
This guy came by with original art from a couple of stories I’d done, including a few beautiful pages from a Stingray story Lee Weeks and I did, and some from the Wildcat story Ramon Perez and I did for DC. Very jealous.
Hawaiian Dick cosplay! These guys made a perfect Mo and Byrd, once I realized they were cosplayers and not strangely dressed congoers.
Blackhawk is maybe my all-time favorite DC character/concept. This guy nailed his costume.
Dinner at the Rusty Scupper with Tony and Stacie Harris and the Aftershock Comics gang: Joe Pruett, Mike Zagari, Paul Jenkins and Lisa Wu.
Lisa Wu took this near the Rusty Scupper. She’s evidently a dog lover. The harbor in the background. Lovely place to hang.
Art from the Valiant panel discussion of SAVAGE.
Saturday around noon. The ticket line.
Working in my room. With a Loose Cannon draw handy (recommended!). The Death Watch Coffee mug was from the con floor. Buy the wicked mug, free refills all weekend of the “World’s Strongest Coffee.” Well worth it.
And a badge.
I’ll be joining the Valiant Comics crew in Baltimore at Baltimore Comic-Con from September 2-4.
I’ll be sitting in on the Future of Valiant Comics panel with the (quite terrific) Fred Van Lente at 1:30 on Saturday (prime time, kids!), and signing at the Valiant booth off and on.
So please come buy with your DICK or assorted BCM books and say hey.
Obviously, we’ll be talking lots of SAVAGE:
Today at the second Valiant Summit in New York City, Valiant Entertainment announced a new book I’ve been working on for some time, SAVAGE.
Here’s a look at a Lewis LaRosa SAVAGE cover:
For more info, I chatted with Chase Magnett about the book here:

Additionally, Image has released their August solicitations, which include this:
Catch me with the BAD KARMA gang this weekend at Planet Comicon, and we can chat about all of this stuff.
The con season starts for me in early February in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Childhood stomping grounds.

The entire Bad Karma crew will be in New York in a couple of weeks for the New York Comic Con, staked out in Artist’s Alley at tables W10-W13. In addition to copies of the BAD KARMA VOLUME ONE book, we’ll have merchandise on sale, host a panel on Thursday, and offer a couple of con exclusives:
In other news, I contributed to a BEN 10 OMNIVERSE Halloween book that will drop as part of Halloween Comicfest on October 26th, from Viz. Diamond interviewed me about the story, and about my Halloween experiences in general:
