2018.11.14 – FIREFLY #1 in comic shops TODAY!

Absolutely thrilled that FIREFLY #1 hits comic shops today! The book continues the adventures of the band of outlaws and outsiders who starred in Joss Whedon’s beloved FIREFLY television show and SERENITY movie, and is written by yours truly with art by Dan McDaid, colors by Marcelo Costa, letters by Jim Campbell, and editing by Jeanine Schaefer and Gavin Gronenthal.

I’m hugely biased, of course, but I think the book is terrific and if you like space cowboys, fun worldbuilding, and/or stories about a found family of outsiders driving each other crazy while grappling with the wounds of war, this book is for you!

Keep scrolling for a lettered preview of the first few pages of the book, and ask your local comics shop to hold a copy for you today!

Also, here’s a brand new interview about the book and here’s a great review from ComicBook.com that concludes, “Excellent craft and a compelling story come together to create a comic book that Browncoats are likely to be very, very pleased with.”

 

 

 

“Thanks, Poetry” essay by Greg Pak in this month’s Poetry Magazine — featuring his high school poetry (oh no!)

Just a little stunned to have an essay in Poetry Magazine this month — which includes excerpts of my high school poetry!

The magazine has a feature called “The View from Here” in which it gets folks who aren’t generally known for their poetry to talk about the meaning of poetry in their lives. So I dug into my old high school notebooks and read through dozens of my old poems. Hoo boy! It was harrowing and fun and ultimately opened my eyes to how important poetry really has been in my development as a writer and a human being.

Publisher’s Weekly interviews Greg Pak at the NYCC

Got interviewed by Publishers Weekly at the New York Comic Con, and at the end I told everyone to vote, which is pretty much 1000 percent on brand.

2018.10.03 – KORG RETURNS in WEAPON H #8!

Incredibly excited to reveal that KORG returns in WEAPON H #8, in stores this coming Wednesday, October 3!

Korg is the stone man from Krona who played a huge role in the PLANET HULK epic written by yours truly and drawn by Carlo Pagulayan, Aaron Lopresti, and others. He became a fan-favorite character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe when director Taika Waititi used (and played) him in THOR: RAGNAROK.

And now he’s back in the comics in WEAPON H #8, written by yours truly and drawn by Guiu Vilanova with colors by Morry Hollowell and letters by Joe Caramagna!

Check out the preview here and ask your local shop to hold a copy for you!

MECH CADET YU wins the Ringo Spirit Award!

I’m thrilled to announce that our MECH CADET YU comic book series won the Mike Wieringo Spirit Award at the Ringo Awards at the Baltimore Comic Con last night!

The award is given to the book the judges believe most lives up to the spirit of fun and joy that Mike Wieringo’s work epitomized. It’s a huge honor and I’m overwhelmed, proud, and very, very grateful.

Massive thanks to the creative team, Takeshi Miyazawa, Triona Farrell, Jessica Kholinne, Simon Bowland, and Raul Angulo. Massive thanks to our amazing editors Cameron Chittock and Eric Harburn. Massive thanks to everyone at BOOM! who have supported the book so much, including Arune, Mel, Filip, Ross, and Stephanie. And massive thanks to Jeff, Parry, Keith and Jerry, the editors of the SHATTERED Asian American comics anthology where the earliest version of the story first appeared.

And of course, thanks so much to all the readers and reviewers and retailers who have given the book so much love. Without you, this never, ever could have happened.

2018.09.12 – WEAPON H #7 in stores – co-starring Captain America!

Very proud of WEAPON H #7, which hits comic shops this coming Wednesday. Captain America co-stars, and that gave us a huge opportunity to dig deep into Weapon H’s heart and soul — and personal tragedy — as he meets one of his greatest inspirations.

Check out some interior pages below, with gorgeous art from Ario Anindito, colors by Morry Hollowell, and letters by Joe Caramagna!

2018.09.12 – MECH CADET YU #12! Check out the preview!

MECH CADET YU #12, the last issue of our epic series, hits comic book shops on September 12, 2018!

Check out the gorgeous preview pages below, drawn by Takeshi Miyazawa with colors by Raúl Angulo and letters by Simon Bowland!

This is the big, emotional climax to everything we’ve been building since issue one. Huge thanks to everyone who’s supported the book — we’ve been overwhelmed by the incredible good vibes and it’s all thanks to you that our little four issue miniseries got to become a twelve issue epic!

Ask your local comic shop to hold MECH CADET YU #12 for you today!

I got to write Deadpool!

I’ve written dozens if not hundreds of Marvel characters since I started writing comics professionally in 2004. But I’ve never written Deadpool! Until now! Fred Van Lente are co-writing WEAPON X, where Deadpool’s just joined Sabretooth’s team of maniacs as they take on the (once again) resurrected Reverend Stryker, who now has a robot body, because of course.

The panel above might be my fave from WEAPON X #23, with line art by the great Yildiray Cinar, colors by Frank D’Armata, and letters by Joe Caramagna. Full page below!

FIREFLY #1 preview art!

 

Yep, I’m writing the new FIREFLY comic book for BOOM! Studios! And BOOM! has released some preview pages from issue #1, which goes on sale in November! 

The interiors are drawn by the great Dan McDaid with colors by Marcelo Costa, and they’re gorgeous. For more details, check out the CBR article.

Preorder the book today from your local comic book shop!
