Far Sector Issue 1— In Stores Now! This is a big one for Young Animal. Years in the making and finally here. @DCcomics let us play around with the Green Lantern concept and what the creative team has come up with is something very special. Very early on I had the seed for an idea, a way we could do Green Lantern at Young Animal. Around the time I was playing with that concept, my friend Ian told me to check out The Inheritance Trilogy by N.K. Jemisin, and I just loved the writing. I felt like we had found our writer, then I also found out she had won the Hugo Award consecutive years in a row, so I was worried she wouldn’t want to play around in comics. But we reached out to her and pitched her the very loose seed of an idea, and she climbed on board. She took to comics immediately, naturally understanding the language, and she took the very small seed of an idea and grew it into this epic thing. She completely made it her own and elevated it. Shawn Martinbrough helped out early on with some concepts of Jo, and ultimately Jamal Campbell went and did further development, again making it his own, and he climbed on board to do the art for the series. And what you have is a very new take on Green Lantern, and a real sci-fi epic murder mystery.  It’s rich and complex, the writing is fantastic, the art is gorgeous, and the lettering, by Deron Bennet, is inventive. Please check it out— I think you’ll be very happy with this series, which is a maxi series, because N.K. had a lot of story to tell and was inspired. And I’m honored to put this book out through Young Animal. I’ll be checking in every issue along the way, making posts and letting you know when they hit the stands. It’s going to be a fun ride. There are 3 covers for this first issue. The main cover by Jamal, and two variants, one by Shawn Martinbrough, and one by Jamie McKelvie, and they all came out great. #farsector #dcyounganimal #dccomics #greenlantern #nkjemisin #younganimal

Collapser Issue 5— In Stores Now! Two Young Animal releases today— We’re getting closer to the end of the arc for this story and I hope you’ve been following along. I think one of my favorite things about this book is the amount of imagination that has gone into it. You’re always getting hit with some new, fun, weird idea or crazy concept. From the writing to the art, everyone is having fun. This is also my favorite cover of the series. I’m a sucker for that old zine photocopied energy. Check it out!

Doom Patrol: Weight of The Worlds Issue 5— Out now! Hey all, we have a very special issue of Doom Patrol here. This is a guest issue with a fantastic story by Young Animal family member Becky Cloonan along with Michael Conrad. Stunning art by Becky (she told me this is the first full standard comic issue she has drawn since Killjoys! ), as always— wonderful colors by Tamra Bonvillain, and awesome lettering by Simon Bowland. Despite the names on the cover, Jeremy and Nick and I didn’t create this issue, as this is a stand-alone story, and an idea that Becky and Michael had for a while that they were very passionate about. It’s incredibly fun and meta as hell. If you haven’t been following DP WOTW you can still enjoy this issue. Check it out! Just ignore the credits printing error on the cover, but enjoy the cover image by Becky and Tamra! #doompatrol #dcyounganimal #dccomics @beckycloonan @tamra .bonvillain @simonbowlandlettering @michaelwconrad

Doom Patrol: Weight of The Worlds Issue 4— out now! This issue was super fun to write. The idea for Destiny Beach had been floating around in my head for a while. I wanted to write a Flex-centric issue for this run with Jeremy, and I love the way Jeremy writes Flex. Jeremy and I recorded a podcast (Comic Book Commentary with Ben Blacker, link in bio ) for this one, with us going through the issue page by page, called. Nick Derington (our cover artist ) and I had been talking about doing a Doom-focused podcast episode or two where we walk through the books on our runs and our process for a while, so it was good to get in there and finally do something like that. Hope you enjoy this one if you’re checking it out. Nick Pitarra handled the line art for this one, and it’s obvious he was born to draw Flex. Tamra Bonvillain handled the colors on this one, as she has for most of the run on DP, and as always I’m in love with what she did. Simon Bowland handled the lettering, and it’s great. Jeremy and I approach the scripts for this run as very stream-of-consciousness style writing, and we sit in the same office working on a live document, going back and forth. It’s been fun. Oh and of course, last but not least, a beautiful Nick Derington cover with lots of crazy text. He wanted it to look like an old fitness mag and it works extremely well in my opinion. #doompatrol #dcyounganimal #dccomics @jeremyfranklambert @nickderington @tamra .bonvillain @simonbowlandlettering @nickpitarra

This made my morning! Alex Lahey ( @alex_lahey ) and her band covering Welcome To The Black Parade. Last month, Frank told me about the beautiful Kimya Dawson ( @kimyadawson ) cover of Kids From Yesterday, which was so special. Then, a friend of mine just sent me a link to this Alex Lahey cover, which gave me chills (both covers did, really, and both for different reasons ). I appreciated how delicate and raw and soulful Kimya’s cover was, it made me look at the song in a different way. And what I appreciate about Alex and Co’s Parade cover is how much they really went for it, and with all of the additional instruments (those cymbals! ) and everyone singing and just smiling and having a good time. Really amazing performance. My friend told me to check out her album, I Love You Like A Brother and I thought it was great, you should check it out too if you like. But watch this performance if you can, and watch Kimya’s cover of Kids, it is on her Insta dated July 29th, and check out her amazing albums as well. It’s a really nice feeling to see such fantastic musicians appreciating our work. #alexlahey #kimyadawson #theblackparade #welcometotheblackparade

The Umbrella Academy Volume 3: Hotel Oblivion—  In Stores and Digital Available Now! This one was a long time in the making. Announced way back in 2009, a lot of things happened in between the announcement and the actual release of this, for @gabriel_ba and myself. Lots of life stuff, other projects, emotional growth and experience gained. Over the years, there were some false starts and every time I came back to the project I had to make it new for myself, fine-tuning the themes and characters. I am very happy with the results and hope you enjoy it if you plan on checking it out. Coincidentally, I just started Volume 4, so hopefully it won’t be too long before a new issue hits the stands, seeing as how this volume ends on a major cliffhanger. Art by @gabriel_ba , Colors by @nick_filardi , lettering by @natepiekos , and written by me. Presented here are the standard edition and the Barnes & Noble exclusive. At your friendly local comic shop, bookstores, Amazon, and digitally at @comixology . Links in bio. #umbrellaacademy #theumbrellaacademy #darkhorsecomics #hoteloblivion #barnesandnobleexclusive

An amazing Kickstarter project with a ton of great names, edited and run by my one time Doom Patrol editor and Young Animal co-conspirator @sxbondimprimatur . They hit their funding goal but there is still time to get in on it. Check it out if you like to learn how to do cool things.

This was a super fun issue to write. The title, Space Divorce had been in my head for a long time. And there’s a page in this issue involving two very beloved DC characters that was ripped from Mikey Way’s very dreams! Amazing covers for this issue, Nick Derington on the left, and Paul Pope on the right. #doompatrol #dcyounganimal #jokersisland #dccomics
