Wednesday, March 31st brings CLOAK AND DAGGER #1, the first solo -- well, duo -- title for these fan-favorite Marvel characters in almost twenty years. This self-contained one-shot grows out of C&D's recent appearances in the X-Men titles, but no prior knowledge of the X-Men, Cloak, Dagger, or American comics (its history and practices) is required.
I had a blast dropping these characters into a new era, and Mark Brooks did an AMAZING job on the art, aided by Walden Wong on inks and Emily Warren's luminous color work.
You can read the first seven pages here or here!
Go here to hear me blather for fifteen whole minutes about C&D, writing, and editing!

The solicitation reads:

Or while I was, anyway: Two projects slipped out last week with stories of mine in them. First off is the oddball BREAKING INTO COMICS THE MARVEL WAY #1, which features an Iron Man story by me and Joe Suitor (sample above). I just sat down and read the whole book, and it's an unusually even-quality anthology -- lots of good one-off stories by Marc Guggenheim, Brian Bendis, and various other writers you might know, paired with artists you might not. A really nice sampler of the Marvel Universe, with stories set both past and present, and a lot of pages for $3.99.
Also this past week: STAR TREK ALIEN SPOTLIGHT volume 2, from IDW, collects my TRIBBLES book -- pitting the little fuzzy guys against Klingons, alongside a decidedly non-Starfleet human crew -- along with various other glimpses into the weirder corners of the Trek cosmos. I've got a new TREK book coming in June -- more on that soon.
