Hall Of Legends

I had the honor of being inducted into the Wizard World Hall of Legends last night in Chicago. My old pal and editor Mike Gold was on hand to make it all the more special. I want to thank all my fans, friends and family who made it possible, especially Mom and Dad who had the sense to live in an area where we wouldn’t see one of those new-fangled television contraptions until I was 8 (we didn’t get one until I was 11). In the meantime, we had movies, comic books, newspaper comic strips and radio — which in those days was like TV without pictures (you had to supply your own). We learned to use our imagination and were given the freedom to use it. After 44 years in comics, I hardly feel like I’ve really worked a day in my life.

Denys Cowan

The amazing Denys Cowan stopped by my table at SDCC. Denys and Michael Davis launched Milestone Comics decades ago and the rest of the world is finally catching up. High damned time!

DOUBLE HEADER!!

It’s been an amazing week here at San Diego Comic Con, but it just got more amazing. A couple of days ago, I was notified that I have been named to the Wizard World Hall of Legends and will be inducted at a ceremony at Wizard World Chicago on August 24th.

Today my old pal Mark Wheatley stopped by my table at the convention to congratulate me on being named to the Overstreet Hall of Fame. The Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide to Comics is the Kelly Blue Book of the comic world and considered THE authority on comic values.

Mark also informed me that he and I were now the only living members of the Overstreet Hall of Fame.

We’re both grateful, but a little nervous…

R.I.P. Joan Lee

I just learned that Stan Lee’s lovely wife Joan has passed away. They were married for 69 years and I know the loss of his life’s companion must be a terrible blow for Stan. My thoughts and prayers are with Stan and his family.

GA#27 variant cover

Sorry to report D.C. has elected to go with an inventory cover for Green Arrow issue #27 featuring Wonder Woman. Dang! I was really looking forward to having a shot at the old girl.

Attached is a sketch I did on my recent tour in Australia.

SHAMAN’S TEARS SCREENPLAY

Hi, folks -

I just got word that my screenplay for SHAMAN’S TEARS made the quarter finals in the 2017 Stage 32 Fantasy & Sci-Fi Screenwriting Contest.

Now, if I only knew someone with deep pockets and a devil-may-care attitude toward his money…

Colin Donnel

Enjoying my return to Australia after 25 years. I met Colin Donnel (ARROW;CHICAGO MEDICAL) at Supanova and shared a mutual fanboy moment. Looking at Colin, I’m thinking SABLE…
