2014.07.09 – TUROK: DINOSAUR HUNTER #6 in stores today!

Turok06-0

“Pak has introduced a set of characters in this Gold Key revamp that are absolutely mesmerizing…. Aiding and abetting this is, of course, the excellent art of Takeshi Miyazawa. Can this artist draw dinos or not? And those closeup facial expressions that have become such a signature part of this series already are handled deftly while the storytelling never suffers.” — Cosmic Book News

TUROK #6, written by yours truly with gorgeous art by Takeshi Miyazawa, hits stores today! It’s the second installment of the story of Turok’s adventure with Altani, pteranodon-riding daughter of Genghis Khan. On the fence? You can read TUROK #5, the entire first issue of the storyline, FOR FREE right here!

Read the preview for TUROK #6

Ask your local shop to hold a copy for you

Buy TUROK #6 at Comixology

TUROK and CODE MONKEY SAVE WORLD on sale now at Comixology!

Happy Independence Day! Which also happens to be a great day to buy some indie comics written by yours truly!

Today you can buy the first four issues of my TUROK: DINOSAUR HUNTER book, drawn by the great Mirko Colak, for just 99 cents a pop at Comixology! Check it out here.

You can also get all four issues of CODE MONKEY SAVE WORLD, brilliantly illustrated by Takeshi Miyazawa, as part of the $24.99 Monkeybrain Independent’s Day Bundle at Comixology, which also includes indie hits like BANDETTE, KINSKI, and D4VE. Check it out!

If all you want is CODE MONKEY SAVE WORLD (or any of the other individual Monkeybrain books), you can get them for 1/2 off by entering the code “INDIE” at checkout. Details here!

I’m pretty darn proud of both TUROK and CODE MONKEY SAVE WORLD. Get TUROK if you want to see a Native American in 1210 AD deal with the arrival of Crusaders who use dinosaurs as weapons of war. And read CMSW if you want to see a monkey and a supervillain team up in a story based on the songs of internet superstar musician Jonathan Coulton.

Big, fun stuff to write — I hope ya enjoy reading it!

Tons of Storm, Turok, and Superman interviews

storm-cosplay-senyc

In the last couple of weeks, I’ve been interviewed a bunch of times by different cool folks about different projects. Here are some excerpts and links – feel free to check ‘em out!

Storm herself (as cosplayed awesomely by Janel McClain, above) interviewed me at the Special Edition NYC comic con for Word of the Nerd.

I talk a lot about the use of history in MAGNETO TESTAMENT, questions of Native American representation in TUROK, and compare Superman and Storm in this interview for Weekly Comic Book Review.

Here’s podcast I did with Ryan and Ben for Marvel.com about the upcoming STORM series.

Comic Attack asked me fun questions about Amadeus Cho.

Dynamic Forces asked me about the new STORM book – and I spill a little about the possible importance of Hank McCoy.

Unleash the Fanboy asked me about Storm, Hercules, the gay romance in X-TREME X-MEN, and what I’d do if I weren’t writing comics. Here’s an excerpt:

You’re trying to learn about and understand people from all different backgrounds and places and tell stories that connect in some way and help people … When we’re writing, we’re struggling to understand the world, you know what I’m saying, and sharing that experience will hopefully help other people as they’re making those same kinds of efforts. This sounds a little silly but because you don’t want to overplay what we do in creating pop culture, but there’s a way that stories bring people together, you know what I mean? That’s what makes us human. Storytelling is probably the most intensely human thing that we do. It’s something maybe that humans do that nobody else does.

Geeked Out Nation interviewed me about Batman, Superman, and Storm.

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.

TUROK #1 lettered preview pages!

At long last, Dynamite Comics has released lettered preview pages from TUROK DINOSAUR HUNTER #1, which goes on sale February 5 in comic shops everywhere! The book was written by yours truly with art by the great Mirko Colak, letters by Marshall Dillon, colors by Lauren Affe, and edited by Nate Cosby.

Check ‘em out, and come see me on February 5 at JHU in NYC, February 6 at the Comic Book Shop in Wilmington, and February 7 at Fantom Comics in Washington, DC.

Also, here’s an advance review of TUROK #1 from Adam McGovern over at ComicCritique.com. An excerpt: “The ear for the shadings (both nurturing and harsh) of Native culture is attentive and three-dimensional, and the psychological climate layered and foreboding.”
