If you’re in the LA area, David Henrie and I will be doing a release signing Wednesday night from 6-8pm at Collector’s Paradise in Pasadena.
You can preview the first issue here.
I’ve been doing an internet press tour. You can catch the interviews at:
USA Today | Multiversity | Comic Book Resources | Newsarama | Comics Bulletin | Comicosity | …and there’s one more coming later this week.
First, this Saturday, July 19th at 2pm, I will be signing at Meltdown Comics on Sunset, along with Los Bros Hernandez, Gerard Way, Becky Cloonan and more amazing artists and writers than you can shake a stick at (go ahead and try…I dare you!)
Then, next week I’ll be in San Diego for all five days of Comic-Con. I wrote a Dawn of the Planet of the Apes prequel one-shot, CONTAGION, which will debut there as a SDCC exclusive, available only at BOOM! booth #2229 (if any survive the con, they will be available for sale through BOOM!’s website after the show). I talk about the book here, and you can read the first six pages here.
My signing times at the BOOM! booth will be:
And last, but certainly not least, my new mini-series CLOAKS is currently available for pre-order. The last day to pre-order the first issue with your local comic shop is next Wednesday the 23rd, the same day Comic-Con starts, so make sure you place your order before leaving on your trip if you’re going. If there’s not a comic shop near you, you can subscribe to the entire series through BOOM!’s handy online store.
If you want to learn more about CLOAKS and see more series art, I’ve given a couple interviews about it so far:
Boom just released their October solicitations today, so now you can also see the cover to CLOAKS #2:
My Comic-Con exclusive Planet of the Apes has been announced!
Writer: Caleb Monroe Artist: Tom Derenick
Set directly after the events of 20th Century Fox’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes film, DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES: CONTAGION follows the story of Ellie (played by Keri Russell in the new Dawn of the Planet of the Apes film) as she struggles to find a cure for the pandemic before it claims her daughter forever. In this self-contained one-shot issue, we see a slice of the descent of mankind as they succumb to the Simian Flu pandemic from the perspective of the CDC and various doctors and scientists trying to stop the outbreak.

Got a little tired of seeing the Blondie image at the top and I can’t quite show anything new just yet, so here is a very small sneak peek to a cover I finished a little while back. Enjoy!
