BROOKLYN FOOD. The best...these are my favorites



THE BEST pizza in new york and it looks so easy to make. hmmmm...maybe I should quit comics and open a place down here.

amanda calls this post food porn.



Amanda and I swear by Brennan and carr. if you are ever in brooklyn, ave. u and nostrand, you have to go. Joe delfini and I made it a wekly hit for lunch for years.



lenny & johns, great pizza place open till 3 am...which is perfect.




roll n roaster...man, everything is good here. My mother loved going there.



in coney, totonnos was always easy to eat at, but the yuppies invaded and it has been busy ever since. only open wed-sunday.



Best hotdog in the world. Hands down...the original. people always argue this with me, make me try their favorite place and not once have I found a better place.


mill basin deli has a killer menu. Huge sandwiches and is a real brooklyn jewish deli.

and a couple of people we know well...at Knapp Street pizza. John and his wife.

CLAWS 2

Yeah, we have been working on this for quite a while now and I havent been able to talk about it...but it looks like now we can and it is set to be delivered , starting in June. Justin and I love working with Joe linsner, so a continuation of our last series was a natural thing to do. There is a good interview up at newsarama.com now that you can check out...and as we get some color pages coming, I will post some.

This takes place right after the first mini-series and its a blast...and issue 1 takes you somewhere you wont expect by the last page. all good stuff that will probably be sort of ruined by advance solicitations...lol. it happens.

Jimmy.

DO THIS!!

You want one of these for yourself and she does a fantastic job. Buy one and support an artist and a con or two!

REST IN PEACE: PHOEBE SNOW.

Beautiful voice and a great loving person. She left the music business at one point to devote her time to her handicapped daughter. Rest in peace...your music will live on forever.

DEADSPACE: Some assorted clips.

As a lot of you know
Justin and I wrote this a while back for E.A. Games and the STARZ channel. Here are some assorted clips, the original ending that they ran out of money for, a mash up done by a fan and a horrible scene that spoils the movie a bit. Happy Easter.

STUFF: Catch-up.

Working my ass off this week has left me little time to get to the blog here. Dont worry none, sexy monday will be on time and ready to go...lol.

Been writing , with Justin, a new series we have that will be talked about for a long time and probably announced in San Diego, along with another bunch of work we have coming. I personally will be a guest of a company that is not one of the big two this year...and I am happy to say its going to be a blast.

Before that , amanda and i will be attending the DALLAS COMIC CON may 21st and 22...and will be joined by a few friends like Tim Bradstreet, Steve Niles and Tom Jane. this is going to be a blast. Tattered Man comes out the week before , so i expect to see some copies of that floating around...I hope. lol.

Right after that, on the 25th of may, we will be signing at a local store in clearwater area called Yancy street comics. Bunch of great guys...we will only be there for 2 hours though...we never sign longer than that at stores unless there is a crowd. Store signings are usually small and intimate...which is nice.

In june, we will be guests at the CALGARY COMIC CON, in Canada and we will be spending an entire day getting there...lol. We are really looking forward to this because its a part of the world where we have never been before and are excited to meet everyone and saple their local beer. lol...

Well, thats it for now. hope everyone is doing well...and remember, if you post here ...a question, I will answer it. as well, please turn other lovers of the same stuff we all like on to the site.

thanks

TATTERED MAN and TRAILBLAZER updates...

The orders are in for THE TATTERED MAN...and they are healthy...but we are printing close to order, so there is still time to reserve and pre-order a copy before it Drops next month. Both from the wonderful crew at IMAGE COMICS.

As far as TRAILBLAZER, the same applies. You can pre-order it now and you will get it...otherwise the risk is pretty good that it wont be available.

Both books have an AMANDA CONNER chase cover when a retailer orders 10...so that should be noted for the die hards. Please try not to pay too much for it unless you cant live without it...we do the chase covrs to get the numbers up and make the collector happy...but at times, the prices dont match the actual cost.

Everyone following the blog has seen a decent amount of TATTERED MAN and thats cool...but nothing from TRAILBLAZER other than the covers...so thats coming soon. Paul Mounts is coloring it and we are waiting on him to get us some pages to look at asap...so as soon as I have them, you will too.

Below the Dave Johnson masterpiece, Amandas black & white chase beauty, and a colored version. and yes, you all have permission to use them anywhere and repost anywhere...as long as you give the artists credit.

We are waiting to hear back from everone when we can make these books available for download as well for those out of the country or without comic shops near you.

WETA CAVE

Amanda and I were in Wellington New Zealand last week for Armageddon con and were told we have to visit the WETA CAVE, part of the studio where Pete Jackson and his crew work and create their films. We took a $30 dollar cab ride up to it and found it to be smaller than most comic shops and about a 10 minute visit at best unless you sit through the small film they show [ which was very good] , but overall, this is NOT a destination thing for anyone unless they feel like shopping. Sure, there was no fee...but it was a glorified gift shop with some cool props. I think it was dissapointing overall because I was led to believe it was something else. Its cool that they have it...but honestly, You can pretty much buy everything they feature there online at http://www.wetanz.com/cave/ . Live and learn.

More photos from our trip coming soon.

Always loved this song. Remember the 22 brides comic book? it was based on them...sort of. they are characters in the team.

super cool alternate cover by superstar Mitch O connel.
