Dynamic Forces, who often does exclusive variant editions of other publisher's big issues with new art, is doing the same for a couple of our books right now. They're doing exclusive editions of ANGEL: AFTER THE FALL #11 and SPIKE: AFTER THE FALL #3. And what's really notable about these is that the covers for the two issues have been drawn by the inimitable John Romita. That's John Romita Senior, too, not his equally talented progeny. You know, the guy who first gave life to Mary Jane Watson in Spider-Man #41, the guy who drew one of my all-time favorite covers ever (Spidey #39), the '60s Marvel Bullpen stalwart who Stan nicknamed "Jazzy." I'm a little excited about this, as you can see, and I love his take on both characters.
In other news, I did another segment on radio station WNJC 1360 AM in Philadelphia. The show's host Sohaib Anwan, was formerly one-half of a due who did a show called "To Be continued." That show's been discontnued, and Sohaib--who's a great, informed guy and a good conversationalist/interviewer, has launced a new show called
Fictional Frontiers. It airs Sundays on that station at 11 AM EST. The full site will be up with podcasts of all the shows very soon. I'm likely going to be a monthly pop-culture correspondent on the show--today, we debated whether PULP FICTION or THE LORD OF THE RINGS deserved the top spot on Entertainment Weekly's "100 New Classic Films" list, talked about the new HULK movie, ran down some new IDW projects and even had a caller talk Transformers with us, too.
The next episode I'll be on will be the July 19th show, talking about various things we'll be announcing at Comic-Con a week later.
