Now that Arsenal has joined the team in TITANS #26, the question is... "What the hell is going to happen next?" For the answers to this question, and many more, check out my new interview at COMIC BOOK RESOURCES. Just click on the title of this posting and you'll be taken there.
Thanks to Kevin Mahadeo for the great questions! Also, a BIG THANKS to all of you who have made the all-new TITANS part of your monthly reading. You're gonna love what we have coming up in the next few months...

If you know me, you know I love what I do -- whether it's writing comic books, TV shows, audio dramas, movies, videogames, or whatever... I just love telling stories. Especially genre stories.
But addition to loving all-things horror/sci-fi-/fantasy/action oriented, I'm also African-American. What happens when a Black writer takes on pop culture? If you're reading TITANS, then you're already seeing it in action. A diverse team dealing with issues, both dark and light (although let's face... more DARK!), while trying to make sense of this journey we call life. If you watch EUREKA, then you must know how proud I am to work on a show with such a wonderfully diverse cast. It's also a show where an interracial romance (Carter and Allison) is no big deal. It's just, you know, LOVE. And that's groovy, eh?
Anyway, last weekend at SDCC, Arturo R. Garcia interviewed me for his wonderful blog, RACIALICIOUS.COM -- the result is a frank and wonderful discussion about diversity in comic books, as well as (hopefully!) a bit of insight into what it's like to be a writer of color in a major pop culture medium. Check it out by clicking on the TITLE of this post -- you'll be taken to Racialicious.com.
Thanks to Arturo for asking some tough questions and for being a great guy!
