Strangely Enough [JUNE 2017]

Welcome to the Summer of 2017! Hopefully, you will have time to hit the beach, cookout, go to amusement parks and so on. If you got to stick around and work hard for the money … then that’s cool, too. But if you find yourself able to attend HeroesCon, Denver Comic Con, Florida Super Con, Raleigh Supercon or DragonCon — those will be my Summer 2017 shows — so please stop by my table and say hello.

Also, I would like to thank all who entered the Buffy Coloring Contest. The contest closed on Monday, June 5th and we are now reviewing entries. The winner will be announced during Denver Comic Con weekend (June 30 – July 2) probably on that Sunday because that tends to be a less busy day. We’re going to try to video our reviews of the entries and post it to the KabaLounge website and social media.

After Denver Comic Con ends, July 5th marks the return of comic book property that’s close and dear to me: The American Way. As you know John Ridley and I worked on the original comic book mini-series in 2006. Since then, John has continued his success in Hollywood, winning an Academy Award for ’12 Years a Slave’ and is the creator/ showrunner of the critically acclaimed anthology series ‘American Crime.’

It’s an honor to reunite with John to bring you the next chapter of the New American as he tries to keep communities safe amid the social turmoil of the 1970s. I’ve included a few preview pages below. Enjoy and hope to see you around this Summer!

Joker’s Daughter teased in DC Comics backstory!

In this week’s DC Comics backstory feature, Channel 52, we got a glimpse of their 52 version of the Joker’s Daughter.  Georges is currently working on pencils for her debut story, in Batman: The Dark Knight #23.4.

See this new villain in all her ‘gory’, when she makes her first appearance during the Villain’s Month story arc that will rip through the DC Universe this fall.

Want a peek at what’s to come?  Check out this character design Bob Harras posted on DC’s website sometime ago.

 

DC Comics-Georges Jeanty to Draw “Bruce Wayne”

DC Comics has reported on their “The Source” blog that Georges will be filling in on The Return of Bruce Wayne #4.

“We were lucky enough to sign on Georges Jeanty–hot off his work on Buffy the Vampire Slayer— to pencil the fourth installment of Grant Morrison’s RETURN OF BRUCE WAYNE! In this chapter, Georges gets to illustrate Bruce Wayne in the “Wild West” period from Gotham City’s past.”
