So at HeroesCon this year I started taking around an empty sketchbook to some of my favorite artists and asked them to draw Sherlock Holmes. It could be any canon they’d like, even their own interpretations, and I think so far all of the artists are having a lot of fun with it. I’m SUPER lucky to have already gotten such amazing contributions from Eric Canete, Cassandra Poulson, Mad Rupert, Ming Doyle, Jackie Lewis, Scott C., and Becky Cloonan.

Continuing in the vein of Strange Adventures and The Unexpected, Vertigo is reviving another old DC title, Mystery In Space, for an anthology by some of the top talents in comics and SFF prose!

I’m very excited to see Nnedi Okorafor among the writers!  Her novel Who Fears Death won the World Fantasy Award last year, and she is an avid comics fan.  I’ve been hoping to see some comics work from her since reading Who Fears Death.

Other ladies contributing will be writer Ann Nocenti and artist Ming Doyle (who would also be a great team for a new Vertigo series, imjustsayin)

For Valentine’s day, please enjoy “The Truth,” a Star Trek minicomic by Ming Doyle and myself.

It was created for To Boldly Zine, a Trek zine edited by our friend Dafna. It makes its debut this weekend at the L.A. Zine Fest. In addition to this story, there are contributions by Jason Ho, Joshua Williamson, Rachel Dukes, Ian Brill, and a bunch of other super-talented folks. If there are any left over after the event, I’ll be sure to give you a link to it!

Just start doing what you want to work on. If you want to make comics, don’t try to talk to editors or write to companies, make your comic. Make it, and put it online. If people like what they see, they’ll react and come to you. The comics community is really very small, and every job I’ve ever gotten, including my very first ones, were based on an image some editor saw online, or a mini-comic I put on my blog, or word of mouth. Show that you can already do what you want to do, and you’ll be doing it in no time.

Club invited three comic-book professionals to discuss the value of fashion design: Kris Anka (artist on Marvel’s Uncanny X-Men, character designer for Marvel), Sophie Campbell (artist on IDW’s Jem And The Holograms, creator of Oni’s Wet Moon), and Ming Doyle (artist of Ver
