Entry 303: Bebop, Rocksteady, PAKLIS, & You!

If you'd have told me, ten years ago, that I'd someday be working on my eleventh comic about Bebop and Rocksteady, I'd have done a spit take and then laughed openly in your face. And that spit take? Not water, but a sandwich... Because I used to eat sandwiches instead of drinking water. All my moisture was derived from sandwiches.

Also, the emotion behind that spit take wouldn't have had a trace of happiness. I don't know Ninja Turtles. I spent my childhood putting little cars in a fucking perfect little row completely alienated from pop culture. I'm sure there are lots of good Turtle comics, but I wouldn't know. I'm more about carefully arranging small things.

Ben Bates and I are making more Bebop and Rocksteady comics! In 2016 we did the five issue series "BEBOP & ROCKSTEADY DESTROY EVERYTHING!" And back in 2013 we kicked it all off with the one-shot issue in TMNT Villains Micro Series. Now we're working on another five issue series called "BEBOP & ROCKSTEADY HIT THE ROAD" You may think it's a road trip comic but it's actually about them literally punching the road.

When all is said and done, Ben and I will have worked on eleven comics just about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles characters Bebop and Rocksteady... Strange days indeed...
For real though, I feel so lucky that Ben and I have gotten to make a contribution to the TMNT universe with these B&R stories. "Hit the Road" is a natural continuation of what we did in "Destroy Everything." It feels just as wild and fun. I've come to kind of love these guys. They are terrible, terrible guys, but I love them.

This is supposed come out weekly in August.

What else is going on?

I did a variant cover for Jim Zub, Steven Cummings, and Tamra Bonvillain's comic, WAYWARD. Check it out.

Just small things carefully arranged.

This was fun. I find a parade of characters makes something look fun and interesting to me.

In other news:

Don't forget we got the last S.H.I.E.L.D. issues coming in May!

And I'm still working on more PAKLIS. Here are some pages.

Wednesday week she loved me.
