These were the topics of the chapter in Book 3 I worked on tonight. Apparently Entropy Emily is a Little Mermaid fan. Who knew.

After seeing James Gunn's phenomenal response to a couple of shots at superhero movies earlier this week, I got more than a little frustrated (since was/am an indie filmmaker with a feature film under my belt before I became a mostly full-time superhero writer). Did a little digging, threw some numbers together, got angry and wrote a piece for Home for Wayward Geeks...

Because this is what normal people do, right? Working on a piece for Home for Wayward Geeks proving that there is not, in fact, a superhero tsunami. Inspired by James Gunn's comments today.

I've been an independent filmmaker and I've been a superhero writer. Anyone who thinks one is a lesser or greater form than the other hasn't stepped outside their...

After going on a tongue in cheek spree of fake conversations about how Spidey's entrance into the Marvel Cinematic Universe will go yesterday on the book's Facebook page, I've been turning the conversations (which... escalate quickly) into a series of blog posts over at the Indestructibles home page.

I have entertained the hell out of myself writing these. I wonder if Marvel...

I can officially say the manuscript for Book 3 is being delayed by the snow. Seriously. Any more snow and I'm going to clearly need a flock of penguins as pets. I cannot abide by this much snow without penguins around.

When you get photos back from a modeling gig and they're a lot more inadvertently dirty-looking than you anticipated. I mean, flattering and all, but I had no idea.

I love fan art, even made with a character generator, and these are cracking me up. To see Kate in full ballerina mode with a SPIKED MACE is killing me. Of course she'd have a spiked mace as chibi.

Now I'd really love to see the Indestructibles as a manga.

Puttering away here in the middle of the night working on book 3 of the Indestructibles, which hit a pretty cool sales number today (I'm still not retiring, but copies are still moving). Book 3 is tackling one of my favorite comic book concepts, alternate timelines, and while I'm actually kind of intimidated about it (and also really worried about taking the heroes...

In a little, unexpected month-end surprise, my publisher is selling nine autographed copies of the Indestructibles for $9 (free shipping). Not sure if anyone here is into YA superhero novels, but figured I'd throw that out there just in case. Not sure what inspired the nine copies thing, but I'll take any promos they want to do...

And I had no idea it took place in Galway. Holy shit what a punch in the heart. The entire first episode was like going back to my old neighborhood. I almost lost it when one of the characters name-dropped Roisin Dubh. I knew all those places. God I was so stupid when I was there. I couldn't see the forest for the trees...

Just heard about #BellLetsTalk, which hones in on mental health, and it struck home for me. I say, and people often assume I'm joking, that I barely made it out of my twenties alive, but it's a defective statement. The fact is I ranged between depressed and outright suicidal for a good ten years and I'm lucky to still be here, and...

So a writer over at Gawker wrote a piece today, "If you buy a Harry Potter Engagement Ring, you should not get married." Basically saying that someone who would buy--or wear--a Harry Potter engagement ring isn't mature enough to be married.

I'm neither a big fan of marriage, nor a huge fan of engagement rings, and while I like Harry Potter, I'm...
