Back home from Comic-Con International: San Diego — and I am pleased to be able to share some news. I actually have three comic books coming out in October. In addition to two in a galaxy far, far away (Star Wars: Knight Errant #5 and Star Wars: Lost Tribe of the Sith #3), you’ll see another from Springfield, U.S.A. — the first of several Simpsons stories I have coming up …
