CYBORG IN DA HOUSE
For those of you who read the comics news media or chatboards, you probably already know that I'm writing TITANS #14 for DC Comics. For everyone else... hey, guess what?! The issue hits stands June 10, 2009.
Now for those unfamiliar with the book, let me get you up to speed. Many decades ago, DC Comics introduced a group of young superheroes called the TEEN TITANS. During the 1980s, the book achieved classic status thanks to a brilliant run masterminded by writer Marv Wolfman and artist George Perez.
Well, today... the "Teen" Titans are all grown up, and now simply referred to as the TITANS. Right now TITANS is in the middle of a cool storyline called "DEATHTRAP." Needless to say with a title like that, BAD THINGS happen to our heroes. My story is a "one-shot" or standalone tale that centers around the character of Vic Stone aka CYBORG. I won't spoil the story here, but I will say that Vic has more than just the aftermath of the "Deathtrap" to deal with in this issue. Yup, poor Vic has a bit of baggage he's yet to deal with... and that's where TITANS #14 begins.
So don't forget to check it out in June -- I hope you have as much fun reading it as I had writing it! And also don't forget that my six-issue miniseries featuring the TATTOOED MAN starts next month. You can pick up issue #1 of FINAL CRISIS AFTERMATH: INK on May 27, 2009.
See you at your local comic book store!
