Halo turned fifteen on November 15 — so it’s fun to be right there kicking off Year 16! I’m delighted to announce that my first Halo comics story has just arrived in comics shops. The Halo: Tales from Slipspace hardcover contains “Undefeated,” a post-Halo: Guardians story by myself and artist Eric Nguyen — with colors and letters by my Knights of the Old Republic colleagues Michael Atiyeh and Michael Heisler.  …

Bart Simpson goes comic crazy — and Mass Effect gets DLC

Some fun stuff available this week! First off, in comics shops today, is my latest Simpsons story, “For A Limited Time Only,” appearing in Bart Simpson #77. Bart and Milhouse, getting hold of a pile of tragically coverless comics, decide to answer all the ads that don’t have expiration dates — and end up destabilizing the world economy! It’s a rollicking story that touches on all kinds of comics ads …

Production note extravaganza! Lost Tribe: Collected Stories and more

Regular readers of this site know I keep production notes and trivia on just about everything I write. I’ve been posting them since I launched the site in 2003, not long after my first professional comic book was released.

Some sort of video game goes on sale this week, or so I’m told — oh, yeah! That Mass Effect 3! And as noted here on the site in the past, I’ve scripted a couple of graphic novels that can supply some supporting information: Mass Effect: Evolution and Mass Effect: Invasion. Evolution is available now, while Invasion ships soon. (Cover of the Invasion collection is at right.) Also, the Collector’s …

Mass Effect: Invasion concludes! Issue #4 hits shelves Wednesday!

And Wednesday finds the final chapter of Mass Effect: Invasion on your comics retailer’s shelf! It’s a pretty big moment in the Mass Effect universe, determining the future of the Omega space station and setting up events for Mass Effect 3.
