It’s Hugo Awards voting season once again! Every year I forget to tell anyone what work I’ve done that might be eligible, but 2019 is the year I break that streak. So, if you’re a Hugo voter, please keep in mind these two stories:
“The Atonement Path”
And if you’re not a Hugo voter, why not read them anyway? Thanks!
The Comic Book Story of Baseball is now available through the National Baseball Hall of Fame’s store. Buy it there and you get a free patina of historical greatness!
It’s Black Friday! So of course while you’re standing in line to save money you should read my story Black Friday.
I am perhaps inordinately proud to announce that Marvel Battle Lines has been unleashed upon the world. Congratulations to everyone at Marvel Games and Nexon! If you’re a fan of Marvel and/or games, I think you’ll dig it. Please do download it, via iTunes or Google Play, and give it a try!
New web site. Work in progress…
Here’s where I’m signing and paneling at San Diego Comic-Con this year. If you happen to be at the show, stop by and say hi at any of these times!
1pm Marvel Games Panel, Hall H
Get an inside look at the latest and greatest from Marvel Games. Attendees will see exciting sneak peeks of Marvel’s Spider-Man, Marvel Powers United VR, and Marvel Battle Lines, with many unannounced surprises and panel exclusives. Host Greg Miller (loudmouth at KindaFunny.com) will be joined by Mike Jones (vice president & executive producer, Marvel Games), Bill Rosemann (executive creative director, Marvel Games), Bryan Intihar (creative director, Insomniac Games, Marvel’s Spider-Man), and others.
6pm Infectiously Expanding the Universe of Tom Clancy’s The Division 2, room 6BCF
Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 creative director Julian Gerighty and other members of the team take you on a journey through what it takes to bring the post-pandemic world of The Division 2 to life in-game. Learn how the Division narrative is constructed with the vision of expanding through comic books, novels, and other entertainment.
10am The Power of the Nonfiction Graphic Novel, room 32AB
In recent years, the nonfiction genre has given graphic novels a real home in mainstream pop culture. From Maus to Persepolis, Fun Home to March, nonfiction graphic novels are winning awards, being adapted into a multitude of other genres, and getting into the hands of a whole new generation of readers. But what does the future of the nonfiction graphic novel genre look like? What stories still need to be told, and what are creators excited to be working on and sharing right now? Panelists Thi Bui (The Best We Could Do), Abby Howard (Ocean Renegades!), Alex Irvine (The Comic Book Story of Baseball), Clifford Johnson (The Dialogues), and Peter Tomasi (The Bridge) answer these questions and more with Travis Langley (Daredevil Psychology).
11:30am Post-panel signing, Autograph area AA09 — This is with the rest of the nonfiction GN panelists, but I’m sure we’ll all sign other stuff too!
3pm Signing Halo: Collateral Damage (and whatever else you might bring) at the Dark Horse booth, 2615 — along with Tyler Jeffers, Jody Houser, Jonathan Wayshak, and maybe some others!
Yesterday I had the good fortune to appear on WBUR’s “Radio Boston” with Anthony Brooks, talking about The Comic Book Story of Baseball. If you missed the show, don’t fret! It’s archived on WBUR’s web site.
And if that conversation whets your appetite for the book, pick it up from your local bookseller, Amazon, or B&N.
