playing catch-up again

Let’s see. What have I been up to? Well:

*The fifth and final issue of Judge Dredd: Mega-City Two came out at the beginning of this month; so did the Director’s Cut of Mega-City Two #1, which includes my entire script for that issue, as well as several pages of annotations. The paperback collecting all of Mega-City Two comes out sometime in August, I’m told (pre-order it now!), and will include annotations for the whole miniseries (which is why I haven’t posted any for the fifth issue here–though if anybody can identify where the Tek-Judge in the first scene originally appeared, gold star).

*I wrote another graphic novel roundup for the New York Times Book Review–this time on Jaime Hernandez’s The Love Bunglers, Fabien Vehlmann and Kerascoët’s Beautiful Darkness, Jesse Jacobs’s Safari Honeymoon, Danica Novgorodoff’s The Undertaking of Lily Chen, and Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky’s Sex Criminals, vol. 1.

*I’ve been writing for Comics Alliance again–this month they’ve run a piece about Prince’s Batman soundtrack,an appreciation of The Wicked + The Divine, and several installments of my new column about the curious gems on the Marvel Unlimited service.

*I’ve been writing some things for Wondering Sound too: I wrote an obituary for Bobby Womack, put together an oral history of Life Without Buildings’ Any Other City, and collaborated with J. Edward Keyes and John Everhart on an oral history of the C86 compilation.

There are other things brewing, about which I can’t speak quite yet, but–I still exist, basically!
