We’re getting closer to finally releasing the Age of Heroes in color. Here’s the latest page John sent me.
I am writing a sixth issue for him so we can complete the first trade.
We’ll be announcing the project in the near future.
Today I was greeted with this page from John Ridgway, who is working to color all the Age of Heroes pages for a planned collection. This is a new page for issue 2 which will help even out the number of pages. I am working on a script for a sixth issue which will fill out the first book.
I’m very excited to get this page. We will be announcing more on the planned book in the near future.
A question people today might have is how did we get to space with such primitive computers. Today’s smartphones are more powerful than Super Computers of the past. Here’s a great YouTuber who explains it. I recommend his channel, he does great work.
Next week the San Diego Comic-Con International will take place at the convention center by the bay. I will be there Thursday thru Sunday. The best place to look for me is probably in the 1900 row, around booth 1901 where I will help promote the new Graphic Novel The Healing, which I have a story in. You can pick up a con exclusive preview copy there. If I am not at the booth when you come by, I will be back around later. That is where I will hang out mostly. I also will be at the Ultraverse 25th Anniversary panel. As one of the founders, I will definitely be making an appearance.
I grew up during the Space Age when e expected moon cities and space stations. But as time went on politics made it clear governments were not up to the task. They had a hard enough time dealing with issues on Earth. So we waited for commercial companies to take up the slack and in recent years, they are. New companies are springing up all the time and many, like Space X have made vast improvements to the technology of launchers and spacecraft. The Gateway Foundation is another company dedicated to building a space station similar to the one in 2001: A Space Oddysey. Check out these videos on what they plan to do.
I love this series of short history lessons. This one is narrated by Brian Cox, a familiar character actor who was the original Hannibal Lecter.
This one on Rome is also great.
DC finally republished my Lex Luthor: The Unauthorized Biography in a collection of Luthor Stories called President Luthor. My story is in the back. It looks great. Eduardo Barretto was a great artist. It was our only collaboration.
The cover is also the cover of my original comic by Adam Kubert.
You can but it on Amazon here.
