I hadn’t realised, but as well as my Doctor Who four parter starting at the end of last month, another Doctor Who book of mine has come out – in this case the deluxe hardcover edition of my entire collected first ‘season’ for IDW, collecting issues #1 to #16 of my Tenth Doctor series, as well as the 2010 annual – with the Tenth Doctor travelling through space and time with his new companions Emily Winter and Matthew Finnegan. Interestingly it’s Amazon page says it’s due out in a couple of weeks still, but many comic stores are stating that they already have it in stock, so check your local one.
It’s 408 pages long and the US Amazon site for it can be found HERE.
I just realised that I never posted (as when it was announced I was in San Diego) that later this year, I have a four part Battlestar Galactica series coming out from Dynamite Entertainment, following the original Starbuck (as in Dirk Benedict) from five yahrens (years) old all the way up to two yahrens before the battle of Cimtar that starts the series.
As you can imagine, as a long term Battlestar Galactica fan, I’m over the moon with this. (more…)
So a year ago, I mentioned that I was both enhancing and adapting a series of comics based on Amanda Hocking’s million selling zombie novel Hollowland for Dynamite Comics. Today I learned that the first two issues of this are now available to download on Amazon, Comixology and Dark Horse Digital, with the first issue downloadable for free.
I’m massively proud of The Hollows (the name of the series), as usually when I adapt a book (for example Pride and Prejudice and Zombies), I have to keep tight to the story within, trying not to deviate too far from the plot and the dialogue. But with The Hollows, the gloves were taken off from the first moment.
Sad news today – Tracy and I have had to pull out of attending the ComicPalooza Comic Con in Texas next weekend. It’s a ‘real world’ problem over work conflicts – the chap we rent our flat from is selling it and our ‘get out’ date has been moved forward from August to the start of June, which means that we’ll be spending the next two weeks sorting out a new place to live… and a week in Texas during this time won’t help that.
Am absolutely gutted as I’ve been working close with the crew for months now, and I really hope that they don’t hate us for this – but it really did come down to a case of finding a place to live vs the convention.
In the meantime, I wish them all the best of luck with the con!
So today I’ve been at the Tower of London. Not as a tourist – although that too is something that everyone should do at least once, but as a special guest of one of the Yeomen Warders of Her Majesty’s Royal Palace and Fortress the Tower of London, and Members of the Sovereign’s Body Guard of the Yeoman Guard Extraordinary, otherwise known as the ‘Beefeaters’ – and as such I’ve been told secrets never told to man, and have been taken along pathways never traveled, through doors never opened for paying visitors. All in the name of research.
