I am currently inking the incredible Jose
Luis Garcia-Lopez on a project written by Phil Jimenez, who is also the
cover penciler, with me inking Phil. Unfortunately, beyond that, I'm
not at liberty to reveal what the project is so I've been calling it
"The EZ Company Project" since all three creators share the same last
two letters in our family names. DC Comics should be making an
announcement relatively soon and it will be a relief to finally be able
to talk about it openly.

draw those pages I will be filmed by a video crew for TwoMorrows' DVD
companion to its MODERN MASTERS book series.
been other offers, including some covers for Dynamic Forces' RED SONYA
and ARMY OF DARKNESS. I also will be providing a cover for DF's
STORYTELLER, yet another retrospective on my career. (I am definitely
being over-exposed). A cover for ForceWerks' B.A.B.E. FORCE is also on
my schedule. There have been other one-shots I've been offered that I'm
not yet free to discuss, or yet to accept, but after "The EZ Company
Project" I will be primarily focusing my attention on completing GAMES:
THE TITANS GRAPHIC NOVEL. Inker Mike Perkins has already started on
some pages and Tom Smith has 30 pages ready to start so it's up to me
to get busy so that Marv Wolfman can start dialoguing the first half of

limit my time away from the drawing board this year.
