Arcana #1 Now Here

A print offshoot of sorts of the on-line magazine I co-created, Extra Sequential, Arcana has now been released in some comic book shops around the U.S. I got my hands on a few copies this week at my LCS in Perth, Western Australia and was so excited I just had to take a photo of it on the shelves, right next to Archie. It’s not a bad looking product, I must say and from all reports the next issue, which will be in conjunction with the team behind the great SP! Nexus magazine will be even better.

At least now I can finally add “internationally published writer” to my resume!

Inside its 80 pages, there’s interviews with creator of The Surrogates Robert Venditti, writer Marv Wolfman, superb artist David Mack and our cover feature on Aussie Star Wars: Invasion, The Authority writer Tom Taylor. If you see a copy, make sure to grab it!

Arcana #2 Begins

Back at work tomorrow in my regular day job as an admin assistant. The 2 weeks off has just flown by, but I did manage to get a lot of writing done for Broken Frontier, started turning the cogs for Arcana #2, and most importantly finished the final edit for Arcana #1, which will debut at your LCS (if they ordered any) at the end of this month. 2009 has been a great year. It was about this time last year that Dave (below) and I launched the 1st issue of our free on-line mag Extra Sequential, which created the opportunity for this new print endeavour thanks to Arcana Comics. You can check out all 3 issues of ES, plus a preview of this month’s Arcana #1 right here.

You might have noticed that I’ve changed my banner at the top of this humble blog. Since I started this about 18 months ago, I had a picture of Daredevil and Wolverine, but figured I’d start 2010 with something more in keeping with the name of this blog.
