Catwoman #39: "Better Than He Does Himself"
Or: the one in which Selina Kyle confirms a rumor. This is an important issue plotwise: It’s the one in which Selina has to decide if she’s going to war against an ever-more-powerful enemy; it’s the one in which she has to sit down in the all-neon diner that Drive forgot and decide if she can even believe she has a brother, much less anything he says. But this is also the issue in which Eiko finally tips her hand about one of the reasons she’s been so drawn to… Read more »
Catwoman and Other News
I have some fun bits of news! We’ll start with the big one. DC announced its June titles today; among them is the note that I will be continuing as the writer of CATWOMAN. It wasn’t a sure thing – I was taken on initially for a single arc, and the future was conditional. It was a big change for her, in terms of both situation and tone, and we all knew it was going to be a leap of faith for readers. As such, I have even more reason… Read more »
Catwoman 38: "The Serpent"
In which things get noir as hell. In the wake of Events in the last issue, Selina truly has descended, and this issue is her setting up a Hail Mary pass to do the right thing, about anything, and hoping she can remember the reasons she took on the job to begin with. Plus, we begin to realize she’s up against more than just Black Mask. Here are the covers! Dig the sinister almost-alive cape on Batman in Jae Lee’s, and the adorable retro cover by Ty Templeton, in which… Read more »
Writing Catchup (and Sleepy Karaoke)
Okay, time for another news roundup! First, some fiction updates: my short story “A Dweller in Amenty” has been longlisted/preliminary balloted for the Stoker! And thanks to the Book smugglers writing over at Kirkus, there’s a lovely review of my novella, Dream Houses. Over at Strange Horizons, I’m also in good company, as I’ve been listed as Favorite Columnist, for which I’m grateful – thanks so much to everyone who voted! I appreciate anyone who’s willing to sit through a year’s worth of those titles. This year, I’m going to… Read more »
PERSONA: Meet Suyana Sapaki
Miss Universe is this weekend. The contestants have already gathered to play extremely awkward rounds of golf, smile blandly into the cameras during spa treatments, and perform in the comedy gold that is the National Costume Contest. There’s also a swimsuit competition, because of course there is. If you’ll notice, no matter what contestant you click on, you’ll get three seconds with them. Then it moves on every three seconds to somebody new, standing in front of a pool or leaning seductively against a tree trunk or posed in front… Read more »
Merry Workmas and a Happy New Year
It’s already more than halfway through the beginning of 2015, somehow, I guess! Hilariously, my vague resolution was to find time to relax. Next year my resolution will be to cut the shit about self-improvement. In related news, here’s a roundup of recent work.… Read more »
