As of yesterday, it’s official: I’ll be writing an arc of CATWOMAN for DC Comics. (That’s her on the left, from the cover by Jae Lee that will be the first of this run, and that I will probably just blow up into a huge poster in my house, who are we kidding.)
To say that I’m excited would be an understatement. Selina Kyle has been close to my heart in several of her incarnations; I’m gobsmacked to be able to write for her. I’m not sure what I’m allowed to say about it at this point – I am assuming Zero, because that’s always the wisest default – but when I’m allowed to talk more about it, I definitely will. Over at io9, I answered some early questions while trying to be vague but informative, which was a hilarious balance to strike. And even if you want to stay spoiler-free, you should head over there for a glimpse of the new Selina by artist Garry Brown; what really makes that sketch for me is her stance in the long shot, which suggests both wariness and somebody secretly itching for a fight. Perfect.
The first issue is due to hit stands sometime in October; I can’t wait.
