Hey, y’all. Apologies for the lack of updates in recent months. I’m going to start fixing that today. In brief, it’s been a hugely busy few weeks. Here’s the quick rundown:
I’m writing a STORM book for Marvel! It’s Storm’s first ongoing ever, drawn by Victor Ibañez and edited by Daniel Ketchum, and it’s going to be great. The book launches in July — please call your local comics shop and preorder it today!
The SUPERMAN DOOMED crossover that’s now running through ACTION COMICS, SUPERMAN/WONDER WOMAN, and SUPERMAN has been selling out — the first three chapters are getting new printings! I’m writing the ACTION COMICS and BATMAN/SUPERMAN issues that are part of the crossover, as well as co-writing the SUPERMAN DOOMED #1 and #2 bookends. For a reading list of all the books in the crossover, click here.
My new short film HAPPY FUN ROOM, starring the great Cindy Cheung, has gone live at the Futurestates.tv website! Watch it today! And check out this interview at Renegade Cinema to learn more about the project.
I’m signing this Sunday, June 1, from 5-7 pm at Boston’s Comicopia comic shop! Boston, please come see, come see! Details here.
I’ll be attending the Special Edition New York comic convention at the Javits Center on June 14 and 15. I’ll have a table in Artists Alley and will indeed be selling gorgeous hard copies of the CODE MONKEY SAVE WORLD graphic novel. Come see, come see!
More shortly on all of this! Hearts all ’round!
Pretty excited about this. My 1998 short film “Po Mo Knock Knock,” written by David Ball, directed by yours truly, and starring Bill Stiles, David Ball, and Vin Knight, is playing at 7 pm on August 14 at the Austin Film Festival’s Made in Texas short film screening!

A few months ago, I participated in a panel discussion organized by CYJO, the creator of the Kyopo Project, a series of portraits of Korean Americans. CYJO has posted a clip from the panel discussion in which I talk for a while about being Asian American and how it affects my writing and filmmaking.
Enjoy — and click here for more about the Kyopo Project.
(Seriously, though, if you’re a Coulton fan and haven’t picked up the “Best. Concert. Ever.” DVD and CD, I highly recommend it.)

In 2004, I directed a two minute short film as part of Nike’s “You’re Faster Than You Think” campaign in which a planet-surfing alien (Ed Lin) teaches a runner (Joe LaRue) the true meaning of speed. Check it out!
