Coming in April: WOLVERINE NOIR, a four-issue miniseries by me and artist CP Smith.
The brief for the Noir line was to reimagine Marvel's characters as non-powered characters in a dark, crime-oriented setting. WIth Wolverine, that was easy. To me he's always been just a tough guy with knives; the only difference here is that the knives aren't built-in. Instead, he's a down-and-out P.I. in 1937, running the detective agency LOGAN & LOGAN with his partner, Dog. Everyone thinks they're brothers...but the truth is much more tangled than that. When Dog disappears on an errand for the beautiful Mariko Yashida, Logan's dark past comes bubbling back up in a paroxysm of guilt and violence.
CP Smith and I have worked on two Wolverine stories before, both collected in the trade paperback BLOOD AND SORROW. He's one of the most powerful stylists in comics right now, and this is probably his best work to date.
And check out the variant cover by Dennis Calero, artist of X-MEN NOIR:

Wednesday, January 21st: The trade paperback collection of my recent IRON MAN storyline, WITH IRON HANDS, hits comic book stores. A terrorist from Tony Stark's past collides with a bizarre threat from his present, with chaotic results. Art by "top guns" Roerto de la Torre, Carlo Pagulayan, and Steve Kurth.
Man, I miss S.H.I.E.L.D. already.

I've just done a "soft launch" of the production blog for SHADRACH STONE, a new miniseries by me and Jon Proctor. Go there now & let us know what you think. Both Jon and I should be posting frequently as the series rolls along.
I'll be promoting the book at the Penny-Farthing Press booth at New York Comicon, too. Details to follow.
