Reading this as a reminder that comics writers are really more like story architects or engineers. The words themselves are just a part of the whole experience.

I always ask my 10 year old to read my scripts. If he doesn’t understand what’s going on, I can’t expect an artist reading the script at 3 am to figure out what’s happening either...

I lost over an hour exploring a twitter vortex of hate because Ben Caldwell drew a flat chested Red Sonja and I’m ruining comics with my Dejah Thoris and Green Hornet. My conclusion is, if you’re in comics and not getting at least a smidgen of hate from these guys, you’re not doing it right...

I don’t think I can overshare this Pia Guerra cover...

I have not just one, but two comics out today - SUMMIT #2 and Red Sonja #12 both good jumping points to dive in actually...

Just sharing this lovely Red Sonja sketch by Ben Caldwell. If you follow him on instagram try snatching one up when he makes them available!

They should call this snapchat filter “Mignola Hellboy”...

This is how I start a 20 page issue - outlining by page, focusing action (because that’s he kind of story it is) and the emotional beats. Then I fill in the plot points. Rinse, massage, repeat.

Then and now:

2014
# pages published = 21

2017
# pages published = 732

Thanks to my family for putting up with my craziness...

Fellow APAer Mike Choi did the cover for my new Green Hornet out in March (in case you’re wondering, she’s the daughter of Kato..)

Carlos Gomez cover for Red Sonja #15 the end of a wild journey for me!

a good year for me, now that I look at it...

What comics are you all reading these days? I desperately need to catch up...

I don’t know about you, but I’m exhausted from all the eating. We’ve already done hot pot twice...

This was finally announced today, but you guys knew all about it already!

Edgar Rice Burroughs wrote Princess of Mars 100 years ago and now I'm writing the prequel. No pressure at all...:-) fortunately Pasquale Qualano and Valentina Pinto are rocking the art, as you can see-

goodies have arrived. Merry christmas to me!

Just want to share how fantastic and vibrant the show was in Sao Paulo. Imagine San Diego but with artist alley in the middle! I filled my suitcase with Brazilian comics (and unpasteurized local cheeses and kinder eggs because I like to live life on the edge...)

Goodbye, Rio. On my way to Sao Paulo today for CCXP. I'm on one panel, the diversity panel! What a surprise...

Red Sonja #11 drops this Wed and Jan Duursema did this cover.
