Executive Assistant creator and Fathom Volume 4 writer David Wohl popped into the studio today to work on his various writing tasks for the day but mostly because he missed seeing our faces. Currently he’s scripting pages for a future issue of his new Aspen series Homecoming. David co-created Homecoming with Michael Turner and Scott Lobdell and the art team is Emilio Laiso on pencils and inks and Brett Smith on colors. The story so far is thrilling and really captures that high school feel that we all miss (Well, except for you actual high schoolers) while also presenting an entirely different take on an alien invasion story. The main character Celeste also kicks major ass so don’t miss it if you’re a fan of those genres or David Wohl’s work. You can discover more about the series here on the official Facebook page for Homecoming:
Enjoyed a night of sushi, sake, beer and good company last night so I consider that a win in my book. So far 32 is looking decent, although I encountered a problem with my email database when I got into the studio so the morning looks like it will be spent repairing and rebuilding it. Not fun. On the plus side that means I’ll be able to get further along on the script for Charismagic: The Death Princess #1. We announced this series recently and I’m super excited to be starting on the actual pages for it. Emilio Lopez and Jocelyn Dunn will be illustrating the book and I know they’re really gonna bring it based off the discussions we’ve had. Emilio has a strong base in animation and if you’ve been reading the first volume of Charismagic you already know that his colors are something to behold. So, expect more of the same high level of quality on The Death Princess! As an added bonus, Charismagic proper series artist Khary Randolph will be providing covers for the three-issue mini along with E (Check out the inked cover to issue one below), so there’s plenty of reason to check it out if you’re a Charismagic fan or new reader looking to check out a new fantasy/action-adventure book! Well, that’s all for now, gonna bounce back into the script and hopefully fix this email situation by the afternoon. Take care and have yourselves a splendid day! 🙂
Popped into the studio this evening to go over some lettering proofs with Frank for Broken Pieces #3, Charismagic #6 and Soulfire: Faith #1. All three books are set and ready to go off to the printers next week. Soulfire: Faith #1 by Amanda McMurray and fully illustrated by Siya Oum is the third book in the Soulfire “Search for the Light” mini-series that will be out this July, and even sooner for you folks headed to Comic Con. The story is really taking shape and looking to really set the stage for an amazing fourth volume by JT Krul, Mike DeBalfo and Nei Ruffino. Don’t sleep on these one shots as there’s some wonderful new talent on these books as well as some veterans that are making this one of the most memorable Soulfire tales to date. Soulfire: Faith #1 takes us over the halfway point of the “Search for the Light” event and the next book Soulfire Power is coming together nicely as we speak. Also, Broken Pieces #3 is just about wrapped up and has an exciting new art team of Cory Smith and Beth Sotelo. They really captured the look that creator and my roommie Mark Roslan wants for the series. If you’re new to the title or looking to get your hands on a dope sci-fi apocalyptic adventure, go get this book! Here’s a preview of the aforementioned books:

Every writer likes to stretch their creative boundaries and try new genres, so it was a great deal of fun to participate in the Foster Anthology that writer/colorist/chest council Brian Buccellato has put together. In case you’re unaware, a graphic novel anthology is a collection of shorter stories that generally center around a character or property–in this case, the book Foster. There are some really excellent talents attached to this so I hope you will check it out. Word on the street is it will be at Comic Con next month so look out for Brian and this book. Here’s a small taste that I’m not sure I’m allowed to show 😀
Not a lot of time today as usual, but I wanted to stop by and show you guys a nice sneak peek from Soulfire: Hope the special one shot that kicks off our big summer Soulfire crossover called “The Search for the Light”.

Krul, David Wohl, Khary Randolph, Siya Oum, Jose Varese, David Schwartz, Pasquale Qualano, Brett Smith, Amanda McMurray, Jonathan Marks and more! It all starts on June 27th with Hope! Don’t miss out!
