Don't sleep on Newer Gods!

While this site focuses much on my own writing and other areas of interest, I have other blogs out there to focus on expanded views of things outside the purview here. One such outlet is the nearly year old blog Newer Gods, where I am doing a week by week rundown of comics featuring every appearance of the New Gods after Jack Kirby's initial run.

Now seems like the perfect time to mention it, as I just reviewed the beautifully rendered Uncanny X-Men and New Teen Titans, where the two heroes from different universes suddenly exist in the same one to conveniently team up to fight Darkseid and a reborn Dark Phoenix. Written by Chris Claremont and drawn by Walter Simonson, it's just amazing to look at. The story is all kinds of crazy as well, so be sure to head over and check out both parts of this epic review.

A new update will debut on Thursday and every Thursday for the foreseeable future. (There's a lot of New Gods appearances to cover.) So strap in and be sure to follow the fun of Newer Gods.

Great Art: Boom Boom by Mike Maihack

I've been a huge fan of the work of Mike Maihack for quite some time. His prints are all over our house, including my personal favorite featuring Yukio. His work on Cleopatra in Space has brought one of the most fun series of all ages graphic novels to life and I recommend it to everyone, especially with Fallen Empires, the fifth volume, only a few days from release. Last year, he did a series of X-Men pieces and this one featuring Boom Boom in her original look is one of my favorites.

As always, you can check out a lot more Great Art over on the Tumblr. And after you're done admiring some great art here, don’t forget to check out some of the other great stuff from me this week!

Curious about Shockwave? Here's your chance to read it free!

I'm hugely proud of the fans that support my new work as its released. I'm doubly proud of the fine folks over at Patreon that continue to support and receive new fiction month by month. But I'm also honest that not everyone wants to take the plunge and support new works sight unseen. With that in mind, I wanted to give everyone out there a chance to read the first chapter of my new series Shockwave for the low, low cost of free.

How do you get such perfect benevolence? On Thursday, I send out my next newsletter. In it, fans will have a link to Shockwave 1: Destiny's Beginnings. All you have to do to get a copy is to subscribe to the newsletter. Already subscribed? You don't have to do anything! Then you will soon see the link whisk to your email box.

Now, I'm well aware everyone out there might not see this in the first twenty-four hours it is posted. However, rest assured that anyone that subscribes to the newsletter in the month of March will see the edition featuring the new story hit their email box!

If you're not yet familiar with the newest character in the Quadrant Universe, Shockwave is the tale of a young man named Noah Logan in the tiny city of Cedar Rapids, Iowa,. He suddenly finds himself under attack by intergalactic monsters! The attacks awaken his own nascent powers and starts a saga that will take him across the universe and back again!

So head on over to the newsletter or just enter your information in the handy subscription box below!
