My D&D character Blackheart

The other night, I saw artist friends Wendy Xu and Trungles posting sketches of their Dungeons and Dragons characters on Mastodon, and I couldn’t help wanting to play along. D&D was a huge part of my middle school years. I spent hundreds of hours working on characters, drawing maps, designing castles and ships and coats of arms, and even writing constitutions for my fictional worlds. All of that play and work absolutely helped prepare me for what I do every day as an adult writer.

So I crashed Wendy’s and Trungles’ party and drew my own, new D&D character. Meet Blackheart, a halfling berserker who needs a hug.

PLANET HULK and THOR: RAGAROK

02-the-hulk-split.w710.h473.2x

So a little movie called THOR: RAGNAROK hit movie theaters this week, and I’m thrilled to report that it’s fantastic — and that it’s inspired in part by the PLANET HULK story that I wrote and Carlo Pagulayan, Aaron Lopresti, Gary Frank, Chris Sotomayor, Mark Paniccia, Nate Cosby, Randy Gentile, and many others worked on for Marvel!

Here’s a fun article from Vulture in which Abraham Riesman interviews me and editor Mark Paniccia about the making of the original comics.

Here’s a fun list of PLANET HULK influences on the movie.

Here’s a new review of the original PLANET HULK comics.

And here’s an article about the tweets I wrote praising the new movie, because that’s how it works now, apparently. 😉

And of course, this is a fantastic time to buy the PLANET HULK graphic novel and the PLANET HULK prose novel! I’m biased, of course, but they’re both great! Enjoy!
