Please take a look at a piece that just went up at Shotgun Honey. A 700-word crime flash fiction story called “Overcast.”
As I mentioned on Twitter, the story was inspired by this small piece that artist Doc Shaner posted on Twitter one day:
My intention is to spend a little more time with prose in 2015.

It’s been too long since I’ve updated the blog, so here’s a thing to look at if you happen to stumble past. A page drawn by Tommy Patterson for something we’ll be seeing down the road.
I promise there will be exciting stuff to talk about, like…soon.
Just solicited online, my first work for Valiant:
Listed here, with lots of other good stuff:
Very honored to be working with Valiant. Warren Simons and crew have assembled an impressive group of talent as they’ve been rebuilding the Valiant Universe, and their success is one of the things that continues to give me hope for the medium.
Most of the work I do for DC is of the licensed or “custom” variety, both of which I enjoy quite a bit. But two of my more recent “mainstream” DC stories are always available digitally. Both were a lot of fun to do, and both were exceptionally well received (I could link you to reviews, but that’s a lot of work), so here’s a handy link to both.

The second story (“Exposed”) appeared in ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN #38-39, and dealt with perceptions of Superman, sort of. With fantastic art by Gabriel Rodriguez, and color by Alejandro Sanchez. Have a sample:
Here’s a link to the first digital issue:
(This story was collected as a single issue in print, as ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN #13)

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:
