I am beginning to feel faintly human again.

Well, as human as I ever feel, anyway.

Now, there is work to do. But first...



My DONE TO DEATH collaborator Fiona Staples takes another step towards what in comic terms qualifies as The Big Leagues, and it's about damn time someone with a budget recognized her talent. From DC/Wildstorm's October '07 solicitations:

Written by Marc Andreyko
Art by FIONA STAPLES, Grant Bond and Mike Huddleston
Covers by Breehn Burns, Sean Galloway, Ragnar and Michael Dougherty
In the best tradition of horror comics comes Trick ’r Treat, a 4-issue, weekly shipping miniseries based on the major motion picture written and directed by Michael Dougherty (co-writer of Superman Returns and X-Men 2), produced by Bryan Singer, and starring Dylan Baker, Brian Cox, and Anna Paquin.
Each issue presents a vignette and weaves together four tales of terror and laughter as we witness a sleepy suburban neighborhood’s transformation into a Halloween horror! Small towns have never been so full of creepy characters — from a serial killer who specializes in poisoning candy and a group of mischievous kids who unearth their town's dark secret, to a young woman hunted by a masked stalker at the local festival, or a cantankerous old hermit dealing with a demonic trick-or-treater…these stories will grab hold and pull you in — whether you like it or not! The first issue ships during the opening week of this major motion picture from Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures!
Issue #1 on sale October 3; issue #2 on sale October 10; issue #3 on sale October 24; issue #4 on sale October 31 • 1-4 of 4 • 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US • MATURE READERS

I'm not sure which issue(s) Fiona's working on, yet.

In spite of the fact that I am now officially Small Potatoes, Fiona still wants to do SIX SHOTS, which makes me a happy, happy man.

Well, as happy as I ever feel, anyway.
