Turok06-0

“Pak has introduced a set of characters in this Gold Key revamp that are absolutely mesmerizing…. Aiding and abetting this is, of course, the excellent art of Takeshi Miyazawa. Can this artist draw dinos or not? And those closeup facial expressions that have become such a signature part of this series already are handled deftly while the storytelling never suffers.” — Cosmic Book News

TUROK #6, written by yours truly with gorgeous art by Takeshi Miyazawa, hits stores today! It’s the second installment of the story of Turok’s adventure with Altani, pteranodon-riding daughter of Genghis Khan. On the fence? You can read TUROK #5, the entire first issue of the storyline, FOR FREE right here!

Read the preview for TUROK #6

Ask your local shop to hold a copy for you

Buy TUROK #6 at Comixology

Happy Independence Day! Which also happens to be a great day to buy some indie comics written by yours truly!

Today you can buy the first four issues of my TUROK: DINOSAUR HUNTER book, drawn by the great Mirko Colak, for just 99 cents a pop at Comixology! Check it out here.

You can also get all four issues of CODE MONKEY SAVE WORLD, brilliantly illustrated by Takeshi Miyazawa, as part of the $24.99 Monkeybrain Independent’s Day Bundle at Comixology, which also includes indie hits like BANDETTE, KINSKI, and D4VE. Check it out!

I’m pretty darn proud of both TUROK and CODE MONKEY SAVE WORLD. Get TUROK if you want to see a Native American in 1210 AD deal with the arrival of Crusaders who use dinosaurs as weapons of war. And read CMSW if you want to see a monkey and a supervillain team up in a story based on the songs of internet superstar musician Jonathan Coulton.

Big, fun stuff to write — I hope ya enjoy reading it!

Tons of Storm, Turok, and Superman interviews

storm-cosplay-senyc

In the last couple of weeks, I’ve been interviewed a bunch of times by different cool folks about different projects. Here are some excerpts and links – feel free to check ‘em out!

Storm herself (as cosplayed awesomely by Janel McClain, above) interviewed me at the Special Edition NYC comic con for Word of the Nerd.

I talk a lot about the use of history in MAGNETO TESTAMENT, questions of Native American representation in TUROK, and compare Superman and Storm in this interview for Weekly Comic Book Review.

Here’s podcast I did with Ryan and Ben for Marvel.com about the upcoming STORM series.

Comic Attack asked me fun questions about Amadeus Cho.

Dynamic Forces asked me about the new STORM book – and I spill a little about the possible importance of Hank McCoy.

Unleash the Fanboy asked me about Storm, Hercules, the gay romance in X-TREME X-MEN, and what I’d do if I weren’t writing comics. Here’s an excerpt:

You’re trying to learn about and understand people from all different backgrounds and places and tell stories that connect in some way and help people … When we’re writing, we’re struggling to understand the world, you know what I’m saying, and sharing that experience will hopefully help other people as they’re making those same kinds of efforts. This sounds a little silly but because you don’t want to overplay what we do in creating pop culture, but there’s a way that stories bring people together, you know what I mean? That’s what makes us human. Storytelling is probably the most intensely human thing that we do. It’s something maybe that humans do that nobody else does.

Geeked Out Nation interviewed me about Batman, Superman, and Storm.

If your desktop Mac’s internet connection is super slow for no reason…

… it might be because your iPhone is plugged in and “Personal Hotspot” is enabled.

I’ve been struggling with this one for a few days now — I have great broadband connection in my office but the internet on my desktop computer was super slow. Then I realized it was only happening when my iPhone was plugged in for charging. Most obviously, any site using Youtube wouldn’t fully load. Youtube itself wouldn’t load.

And then I realized I had “Personal Hotspot” activated on my iPhone. (I use the Personal Hotspot setting when out of the office to get an internet connection into my laptop — and sometimes forget to turn it off.)

I deactivated “Personal Hotspot” and internet speed on the desktop returned to normal.

Either the computer got confused with multiple choices for internet access and just bogged down. Or, stupidly, the computer was using the iPhone connection via USB rather than the much better office broadband connection.

Just sharing on the off chance it help someone else!

2014.06.25 – TUROK: DINOSAUR HUNTER #5 in stores! Art by Tak Miyazawa!

UPDATE – the book actually comes out THIS week, on Wednesday, June 25! Please do check it out!

The latest issue of TUROK: DINOSAUR HUNTER hits stores this Wednesday! Wherein our Native American hero heads West and meets Altani, the pteranodon-riding daughter of Genghis Khan and the vanguard of the Mongol invasion of the Americas in 1210 AD!

Read on for a lettered five page preview — and ask your local retailer to hold a copy for you today!
