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)
“Spell on Wheels: Night of the Wand follows the adventure of three talented witches —Andy, Claire and Jolene — as they embark on a road trip to retrieve their stolen magical objects. The three witches must work together to retrieve their possessions, but are they strong enough to defeat the dark magical force behind the thievery?

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!
