Blown away to see Pearl Pangan, a.k.a. Wave, added to another Marvel video game — this time in a speaking role!
Wave was co-created by yours truly and artist Leinil Yu in 2019 and debuted in WAR OF THE REALMS: NEW AGENTS OF ATLAS #1.
The folks at the Asian Author Alliance are organizing an auction fundraiser to help two organizations that work against anti-Asian racism — Stop AAPI Hate and Hate is a Virus. I’m donating a bundle of signed #1 comics featuring Asian and Asian American characters, including TOTALLY AWESOME HULK #1, KINGSWAY WEST #1, MECH CADET YU #1, RONIN ISLAND #1, WAR OF THE REALMS: NEW AGENTS OF ATLAS #1 (with the first appearance of Wave), and AGENTS OF ATLAS #1.
If you’re a writer or creator with books or other items to donate, please click here for more info.
If you’re interested in bidding on items, please keep your eyes on https://kaaarfundraiser.wordpress.com/blog/, where the auction will launch this Friday.
If you’re concerned about this ongoing wave of anti-Asian harassment and violence, another thing you can do is sign up for the Bystander Intervention Training sessions this March from Hollaback! and Asian Americans Advancing Justice. Click here to find out more and sign up. I did!
Sending big love to everyone. Please do keep watching out for each other and stay safe out there.

Please contact your local shop and ask them about your options — comicshoplocator.com. You can also buy books digitally at Comixology.com.
The wonderful comic book writer Leah Williams is now collecting info from different comic book shops and creating an interactive map that will show you where you can get your books in the coming days. Check it out and follow her on Twitter for more!
Today I have two books in stores — FIREFLY #15, which continues the unlikely adventures of Mal Reynolds, infamous outlaw turned sheriff, and ATLANTIS ATTACKS #3, featuring the Agents of Atlas in a titanic showdown between the three great civilizations of Pan, Atlantis, and the Sirenas! FIREFLY #15 was drawn by Lalit Kumar Sharma with colors by Francesco Segala and letters by Jim Campbell. ATLANTIS ATTACKS #3 was drawn by Ario Anindito and Robert Gill with colors by Rachelle Rosenberg and letters by Joe Sabino.
I love both creative teams and am super proud of both books and I hope you enjoy them.
Please do stay safe and stay home!
Very happy to have two (count ’em, two!) big books in comic book shops today.
ATLANTIS ATTACKS #1 was written by yours truly with interior art by Ario Anindito, cover by Mico Suayan, colors by Rachelle Rosenberg, letters by Joe Sabino, and editing by Mark Paniccia and Tom Groneman. Check out a preview here and ask your local retailer to hold a copy for you today!
FIREFLY #14 was written by yours truly with a cover by Marc Aspinall, interior line art by Lalit Kumar Sharma, colors by Francesco Segala, letters by Jim Campell, and editing by Jeanine Schaefer and Gavin Gronenthal. Check out the preview here and ask your local retailer to hold a copy for you today!
I’m thrilled to report that ATLANTIS ATTACKS #1 (written by yours truly with interior art by Ario Anindito, colors by Rachelle Rosenberg, and letters by Joe Sabino) has apparently sold out and is getting a second printing! Check out the details from PreviewsWorld.com.
PreviewsWorld doesn’t provide the new cover, but if I had to guess, I’d guess they’re using this glorious interior spread of the new Agents of Atlas team from Ario and Rachelle.
Please do ask your local comic shop to pre-order the second printing today if you’re interested!
Excited to have three big comics with three new stories hitting shops today!
ATLANTIS ATTACKS #1 features art by Ario Anindito, colors by Rachelle Rosenberg, letters by Joe Sabino, cover by Rock-He Lim, and editing by Mark Paniccia and Tom Groneman and tells the story of King Namor of Atlantis taking on Amadeus Cho and the Agents of Atlas, protectors of the pan-Asian portal city of Pan. Check out the preview here.
FIREFLY #13 features art by Lalit Kumar Sharma, colors by Francesco Segala, letters by Jim Campbell, cover by Marc Aspinall, and editing by Jeanine Schaefer and Gavin Gronenthal. This is the start of a brand new story arc — in which notorious outlaw Mal Reynolds takes on a new role as SHERIFF! Check out the preview here.
STRANGER THINGS: ZOMBIE BOYS is a new original graphic novel with art by Valeria Favoccia, colors by Dan Jackson, letters by Nate Piekos, cover by Ron Chan, and editing by Spencer Cushing and Konner Knudsen.

Hey, friends! This is just a quick reminder that TODAY is the last day to pre-order ATLANTIS ATTACKS #1, written by yours truly with art by Ario Anindito, colors by Rachelle Rosenberg, and a cover by Rock-He Kim! See below for a bit of gorgeous interior art to whet your appetite!
The story continues the new Agents of Atlas saga that began in WAR OF THE REALMS: NEW AGENTS OF ATLAS with a mighty showdown with King Namor, fresh off his INVADERS series.
Wave, Marvel’s breakout Filipina superheroine, will play a big role in the story. And the series will absolutely MATTER for our young heroes — Amadeus Cho in particular. Secrets revealed! Lines crossed! Lives altered!
The series will also feature the beloved old-school Agents of Atlas from the original series by Parker, Kirk, and company!
Ask your local comic shop to pre-order it for you today!
Hope ya dig and thanks so much as always!
Do you think I can fit any more exclamation points into this post???!!!!?!?!
Big day today! I’ve got three books in comic book stores — STAR WARS #74, RONIN ISLAND #8, and AGENTS OF ATLAS #4!
STAR WARS #74, drawn by Phil Noto with letters by Clayton Cowles, is the penultimate chapter in our run. The three different threads of our story come together as our heroes scramble to entrap Vader himself! Featuring the Wookiee/Sith fight you’ve always wanted!
RONIN ISLAND #8 features art by Giannis Milonogiannis, colors by Irma Kniivila, and letters by Simon Bowland. This remains one of my favorite projects I’ve worked on this decade, and the emotional stakes ramp up again in this issue for Hana and Kenichi. In a rave review, Fanbase Press says:
In issue number 8, a character is faced with having to make a difficult choice, and they don’t just continue on unaffected by it; they stop, and the reader is allowed to live in the character’s emotions. It’s a beautiful moment, and one of the reasons I love Ronin Island.
You can read the whole review here.
AGENTS OF ATLAS #4 features art by Nico Leon and Pop Mhan, colors by Rachelle Rosenberg, and letters by Joe Sabino. I love the little character moments that Nico and Pop are rendering so beautifully in this book. Don’t miss Wave and Sword Master finally getting paid and Isaac flirting with Raz! And yes, we’re getting up into major cliffhanger action here — with big ramifications for the upcoming ATLANTIS ATTACKS series!
Ask your local comic shop to hold all these comics for ya! Thanks so much!
