Greg Pak began his run on “Action Comics” in November 2013 with issue #25. The first collected volume, “Action Comics: What Lies Beneath,” is now available in hardcover. Buy a signed copy from the Greg Pak Shop!
Comics colorist Pete Pantazis has a hard deadline in about a week to raise enough money to save his home. Please do check out his GoFundMe and contribute if you can. As an added bonus, if you donate $25 or more, I’ll send you a signed copy of ACTION COMICS #23.2, which Pete colored and I wrote! Just send proof of your contribution and your US mailing address to helpinghands at gregpak dot com (apologies — I can’t ship overseas).
I have about 20 copies of the book to give away. This is the second printing, featuring the cool lenticular 3D cover.
Yep, I’m going to be at the New York Comic Con half of the day on Thursday and all day Friday, Saturday, and Sunday! See below for my schedule — and see you soon!
An extra special bonus is that I’ll be in Artists Alley, table W17, between my frequent artist collaborators Mirko Colak (KINGSWAY WEST, TUROK, and RED SKULL INCARNATE) and Aaron Kuder (ACTION COMICS)! Come see us all!
And yes, I’ll have copies of THE PRINCESS WHO SAVED HERSELF and CODE MONKEY SAVE WORLD for sale.
ACTION COMICS #44, featuring the reveal of Superman’s shadowy opponent and the shocking climax of the Kentville storyline, hits stores tomorrow! Written by Greg Pak and Aaron Kuder with art by Aaron Kuder and Howard Porter. Check out the preview here!
BATMAN/SUPERMAN #24, also hitting stores Wednesday, features the showdown between Superman and Aquaman and a final page reveal that will reverberate throughout the Superman universe. Written by Greg Pak, art by Ardian Syaf. Check out the preview here.
Whoa. Just saw that the giant collection of SUPERMAN DOOMED, written by me, Charles Soule, and Scott Lobdell with art by Aaron Kuder, Ken Lashley, Tony Daniel, and many others, is the #1 selling DC graphic novel at Amazon in multiple categories today!
Probably helps that the digital Kindle edition is on sale for $14.99. Check it out!
This Sunday afternoon, I’ll be leading a comic book master class at the Museum of Chinese in America as part of the Asian American International Film Festival! It’ll be a blast — I’ll go over all aspects of comic book making and give out free books, Kingsway West posters, and ABC Disgusting stickers.

Here’s the description:
For over a decade, Greg Pak has been writing acclaimed comic books featuring icons like the Hulk, Batman, Superman, and Storm — as well as creator-owned books and Kickstarter breakout hits like Code Monkey Save World and the Princess Who Saved Herself.
In this in-depth, practical master class, Pak will dive into the nuts and bolts of comic book making, using the 22 year development process of his newest creator-owned comic book as a case study. Topics will include:
The creative storytelling challenges and practical business considerations of moving from filmmaking to writing comics.
The huge joys of bringing Asian American and other diverse characters to life in comics.
The step-by-step work of making a comic book, from concept to story to script to art to publishing, promotion, and audience building.
The specific challenges of funding and publishing independent comics in the digital age — both via Kickstarter and traditional publishers.
Also featuring nifty comics-related giveaways and never-before-revealed sneak peeks from Pak’s secret, new creator-owned work!
This is almost hard to believe, but the entire “Superman: Doomed” storyline, written by yours truly, Charles Soule, and Scott Lobdell, is now just $4.99 digitally at Comixology — down from $39.99. I have no idea how long this sale will last, so I’d jump on it immediately if I were you. Have fun!
