Received my comps of Kolchak: The Night Stalker Files #2 in the mail today. Those are the issue’s three variant covers pictured above (only one of which has even a tenuous link to the story within). It’s not on this week’s Diamond shipping list, but I’m guessing it’ll be in stores next week (03/16/11). If I find out otherwise, I’ll post the information here.

However, it can be ordered directly from Moonstone now.

“I don’t know if it because I am a fan of the show, or that I’ve watched it fairly recently, but reading this book, I could hear Darren McGavin speaking into his tape recorder and hear the swish of his seer-sucker suit. Mills, I have to think, is as much a fan as I am. To say he nails the feels and tone of the old Night Stalker is a mild statement to be sure.”

CONFIRMED: Kolchak: The night Stalker Files #2 is on Diamond Comics’ shipping list for 3/16/11. It will be in stores this Wednesday.

SINBAD Preview

Here are three pages of artwork by my amigo Eduardo Barreto for our proposed “Arabian Nights” graphic novel, Sinbad: The Coils of the Serpent. We do not have a  publisher for the project – but then, I haven’t started shopping it around yet. I do expect to start pitching it to editors in a  month or so, once we have the first chapter completed.

The story is an original adventure of the legendary Persian sailor, chock-full of sorcery, monsters, pirates, ancient civilizations, swordplay, pirates and beautiful women. Hopefully, someone out there will want to publish it.

Keep your fingers crossed!


Here’s another look at the forthcoming Gravedigger: Hot Women, Cold Cash graphic novel from Ape Entertainment, illustrated by the always awesome Rick Burchett. This one’s been years in the making (the first Gravedigger one-shot came out back in ’04!), but I feel that we’re in the home stretch now. The new volume will include the original one-shot, “The Scavengers,” this all-new story, “The Predators,” and a pulp-style prose story by yours truly, also illustrated by Rick. Look for it later this year.
