Comic Book Club: Neil Kleid
Writer Neil Kleid returns to the show to discuss his new novelization of the classic Spider-Man storyline “Kraven’s Last Hunt.” Plus, reviews for “Saga #23,” “Amazing Spider-Man: Learning To…
The first six weeks of Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman have been pretty darn good. Some classic-style stories with often classic-style art as well is what the title has been all about and I love it for that fact. It is different in a great way from the regular ongoing Wonder Woman series, and that’s the big thing. Last week’s #7didn’t really work for me, in that it was very heavy-handed…
TODAY IS THE DAY, FOLKS.
As of opening time this morning, copies of the “Kraven’s Last Hunt” novelization are appearing on the shelves of comic book shops across the nation. I would very much appreciate you heading down to your local comic shop and picking up a copy, reading said copy, then letting me know what you think either here or in the form of a nice review on Amazon or some other review type site.
If your local shop happens to be Jim Hanley’s Comics in Midtown, NYC, I will be signing copies tonight from 6-8pm alongside Misters Matt Miner and Christian DiBari. I have a few copies of NINETY CANDLES for s ale, as well.
Thanks again for all your support, and here’s to Kraven’s Last Hunt!
Kraven’s Last Hunt, the novel, arrives at comic shops next week! To celebrate, I’m making two appearances in NYC and hoping you can make it out for one.
Tuesday night, September 30, I’ll be a guest of the Comic Book Club, a live talk show and podcast held every Tuesday at 7pm. The show has been running for years and I was actually their very first guest, so this is my triumphant return. Comic Book Club happens at Fontana’s at 105 Eldridge Street (between Grand and Broome Street) and you can find more information at http://comicbookclublive.com
Wednesday, October 1st, I’ll be signing Kraven’s Last Hunt at Jim Hanley’s from 6-8pm. If you’re in the area and can make it down for a bit, that’d be great. I’ll also have some of my other work to sign and if there’s something specific you’re looking for let me know and I’ll bring it along. I’ll be signing alongside Matt Miner (Vertigo Quarterly, Critical Hit) and Christian DiBari (Deadpool, Cutter). Jim Hanley’s NYC is located at 32 East 32nd St., (between Madison & Park)
Thanks! Hope you can make it out for either the show or the signing.
Must be my birthday. Look what showed up at the house.
You can get your copy in comic book stores everywhere starting on October 1st
Thirteen years ago I woke to a call from my Mom, making sure I was okay, asking if I’d heard what happened to the Twin Towers. Today, thirteen years later, the Towers and my Mom are both gone, along with over 3,000 men and women who lost their lives on that fateful day.
I wrote a comic about what I saw and felt that day. It was illustrated by the wonderful artists at Insight Studios, included the late Gray Morrow’s final sequentials, and was collected in a book titled 9-11: Emergency Relief. The comic, “Letters From a Broken Apple,” is archived by the Library of Congress and you can see the pages here. Scroll down and click on the individual pages.
I ended the comic with the words “I’m okay, you’re okay.” But thirteen years later, seeing how much we’ve lost and what the effects that day had on the world, I’m not quite sure that’s true. Instead, I’ll focus on my other words: “Stay in touch, stay safe.”
And never forget.
The first piece of art I ever saw on the project

Here’s the solicitation for the print version of the Wonder Woman story that Dean Haspiel, Allen Passalaqua and I are doing, appearing in SENSATION COMICS #4 this November:

Wonder Woman appears in a trio of tales with some offbeat guest stars! First, Diana and her friend Etta Candy are captured by Ra’s al Ghul, but he’s not the most surprising soul they meet. Then, a Thanagarian menace returns to Earth, and you won’t believe what Diana must do in her battle with Byth! Plus, the London police are confused as to why they caught Catwoman so easily. Fortunately, Wonder Woman is in town to take charge of the situation!
So, the news it out. I’m re-teaming with Dean Haspiel to do a SENSATION COMICS story (along with colorist Allen Passalaqua) this Fall. Our digital comic will put Wonder Woman, her pal Etta Candy and a special DCU guest up against the villianous forces of Ra’s al Ghul! It’s a fun, introspective Golden Age-inspired adventure that also explores notions of resurrection and the afterlife in the DC Universe. And it looks amazing.
Keep your eyes glued here for more news on the release, and perhaps some more kick-ass Golden Age-inspired art.
Okay. The special guest is Deadman.
