TUROK #1, ACTION COMICS #28 and CODE MONKEY SAVE WORLD #3 on sale today!

Hey, friends. It’s a big Wednesday for me — three of my books hit stores! Hope you’ll consider checking them out. And if you’re in NYC, please come see me tonight from 6 to 8 pm at JHU Comics!

TUROK DINOSAUR HUNTER #1 is the story of an exiled Native American persecuted by his own tribe whose world turns upside down with the arrival of dinosaurs. The book is illustrated by Mirko Colak with colors by Lauren Affe and letters by Marshall Dillon. Nate Cosby is our fearless leader and editor.

A few excerpts from reviews:

“…a world arrives fully realized on the page with endless potential.” — Den of Geek

“Thanks to it’s outstanding creative team, and a fresh approach, Turok: Dinosaur Hunter #1 is more than just a reboot, it’s a victory lap for everyone involved!” — Comics: The Gathering

“Pak gives a deeply emotional driven story that sets up the future of the series perfectly. I also loved the soft spoken nature he gave Turok, and the way that the English language was classed as the foreign language amused me.” — Unleash the Fanboy

Grab it from your local store, nab it on Comixology, or get it via mail order from Dynamite!

ACTION COMICS #28 continues the exploration of the world of Subterranea, where Superman and Lana Lang learn of an entirely new threat — and spend a little more time with each other.  Art by Aaron Kuder and colors by Wil Quintana.

The Comic Current calls the book “flawless” and All-Comic.com gives it five stars.

Grab it at your local store or nab it on Comixology.

Finally, CODE MONKEY SAVE WORLD #3 is now available at Comixology! Here’s the solicit: “Code Monkey joins Skullcrusher and the monsters of Villainy Affiliated, LLC in hopes of saving his office crush Matilde from the clutches of Laura the Robo Queen. But who ever said Matilde actually needs saving? Shocking revelations await you on Chiron Beta Prime!”

Art by Takeshi Miyazawa, colors by Jessica Kholinne, letters by Simon Bowland, and based on the songs of Jonathan Coulton.

2013.12.04 – “Action Comics” #26, “Code Monkey Save World” #2, and “Batman/Superman” #6

AC-26-1-0f896

Hey, friends! It’s a huge New Comics Day for me — with “Action Comics” #6 and “Batman/Superman” #6 hitting stores and “Code Monkey Save World” #3 available on Comixology! I’m super proud of all of these books and really hope you’ll check ’em out. Here’s why:

ACTION COMICS #26 features Superman taking on a mysterious invader from below the Earth with the help of childhood friend (and present-day adventuring electrical engineer) Lana Lang. Also introducing a brand new adversary called the Ghost Soldier! Aaron Kuder pencils and inks, and he’s just amazing. Aaron and I are working hand-in-hand on this book every step of the way. I’m writing the scripts plot-first, meaning I send him a detailed, panel-by-panel outline with no dialogue. Then he does layouts and we get on the phone to talk through the whole thing image by image. In the end, I write all the dialogue while looking at the finished art. It’s an intense, intimate, and hugely fun way of working and I like to think it’s helping us tap into something special. Hope you agree!

Check out the preview here. Then ask your local retailer to hold you a copy or buy it digitally at Comixology!

Here’s an excerpt from Aaron Long’s review at Comicosity:

Pak took the reins of the iconic Action Comics with the issue 25 Zero Yeartie-in and gave the young Man of Steel a great voice that we haven’t seen in the Superman books of the New 52. That voice continues in issue 26 as Superman fights an unknown alien creature from the depths that hits his empathy buttons, which Pak explores brilliantly. Pak skillfully introduces a new threat worthy of Superman, introducing intrigue and a lot of plot threads to play with going forward. Pak’s voice for Superman, as both Clark & his super-half, is absolutely fantastic and there was an overwhelming feeling that struck me as I read this comic: I want to read this guy. I *like* this guy.

BMSM-6-4-39d3d

BATMAN/SUPERMAN #6 continues the Mongul/Toymaster storyline that began last issue, with art by the brilliant Brett Booth. The story involves an alien conquerer using a networked fighting game to tap into the strategic skills and fighting spirit of millions of gamers in order to defeat our heroes. Brett’s doing a spectacular job of capturing the mighty mayhem as well as the underlying humor of the scenario. We’re also doing a crazy horizontal layout thing that you don’t want to miss. Check out the preview, then ask your local retailer to hold you a copy or buy it digitally at Comixology!

cmsw-02-sc-origin

Finally, CODE MONKEY SAVE WORLD #2 is the second issue of the Kickstarter-funded graphic novel based on the songs of Jonathan Coulton. A supervillain/monkey team up — and in this issue, we get the Skullcrusher’s secret origin! YOU WANT THIS. Art by Takeshi Miyazawa, colors by Jessica Kholinne, letters by Simon Bowland. Check out the preview and buy it digitally at Comixology!

Russ Burlingame at Comicbook.com calls it “a beautifully-rendered, cleverly-written comic that’s as much fun as anything else you’ll read this year.”

Thanks for reading – hope you enjoy the books!
