Solicitations for August 2021
Updated: Jun 7
All the books by me that are coming your way in August 2021.
In terms of Marvel work, "World War She-Hulk" rolls on. I'm really blown away by Javier's work on this arc. I think it's the best one he and I have done yet. MIGHTY VALKYRIES hits issue #5. Still one of the absolute best-looking books on the shelves, hands down. Mattia is simply incredible. And Torunn continues to make magic with Jane. You can look for more info on Jane Foster's continuing adventures coming soon.
My contribution to THE OLD GUARD anthology is also out this month from Image Comics, with art by Rafael Albuquerque, who I've wanted to work with for years. It's set in the 70s and focuses on Booker, who wanders into the wrong sort of church after a Times Square bender.
And there's an advance solicitation for a new printing of the WOLVERINE & THE X-MEN omnibus, that'll be coming your way in December 2021. God, that book was fun to write. At one point, I was also manning about two dozen Twitter accounts for the various characters, students and X-Men and villains and the Jean Grey School, and would tweet in character. Sometimes Marvel editorial would join in and I'd write a script for what was basically a Twitter play, and we'd all tweet as the characters and tell a little story in real time. I think that lunacy alone shows you just how much everyone involved loved working on that series.

New York City isn't like it used to be in the 1970s, where one drunken misadventure meant your boss had to come rescue you from an army of murder-nuns in a South American cult. JASON AARON (SOUTHERN BASTARDS, Thor, Scalped) and RAFAEL ALBUQUERQUE (HUCK, American Vampire, All-Star Batman) send Booker and Andy to Hell and back, and to Heaven and beyond. Over a century before, Booker finds wonder and violence at a new kind of place called a "restaurant," in a story by ALEJANDRO ARBONA (Doctor Tomorrow, Rick and Morty Presents: The Hotel Immortal) and KANO (Action Comics, Quantum and Woody).
