I'm writing FIRESTORM

For three issues, anyway. Click here for an interview with me on my plans. If that's too much work, here's the short version: THE NEW GODS.

Beyond! #3 Preview

Courtesy Comics Continuum:


Beyond! #3 will arrive in stores on Sept. 7 from Marvel Comics. The issue is written by Dwayne McDuffie, with art and cover by Scott Kolins.

Here's how Marvel describes the issue:

"Dr. Pym's Quinjet has been blown out of the sky by the rampaging Dragon Man. Now the only thing that stands between the devastated survivors of the crash and Dragon Man's wrath is a cyborg super soldier turned-pacifist who has been missing for a decade, Deathlok. Meanwhile, Kraven has a heart-to-heart with the recently deceased hero from issue 1!"

Beyond! #3 will be 32 pages and will cost $2.99.

New Interview With Me

I pre-ordered this and Amazon just sent me a copy, even though their site still says, "Not Yet Released."

Masters of the Comic Book Universe

This informal history of the comic book chronicles, largely in their own words, the lives and careers of the artists and writers who created the most significant and memorable comic books and graphic novels. Stretching from Will Eisner, who started his work in the industry in 1936, to Marjane Satrapi, whose latest graphic novel was published last year, 11 comic book masters are discussed, including Art Spiegelman, Neil Gaiman, Stan Lee, Dwayne McDuffie, Kyle Baker, and Ho Che Anderson. Amazing stories of how these artists and writers fell in love with the genre and built up their careers are coupled with never-before-disclosed anecdotes and previously unpublished self-portraits that will surprise even the most knowledgeable fans.

My "self-portrait" was drawn by Denys Cowan.
