MISTER TERRIFIC LOSES BATTLE WITH MAYAN CALENDAR
The world will end this year according to the Mayan calendar, which is apparently enough to make LA's superhero MISTER TERRIFIC hang up his T-Mask this May. When asked what he'll be doing for the remainder of the year, The Terrific One replied, "Partying like it's '1999.'" (Apparently, that was a very good year for him.)
SERIOUSLY THOUGH, FOLKS...
Yes, in case you haven't heard the news by now, MISTER TERRIFIC from DC Comics has been cancelled. Bummer, right? Yeah, I know. But these things happen. The reason is purely economic. Of course, if every one of you went out and bought 10,000 copies each of issues 6, 7, & 8, DC might change its mind. Ready? Set? GO.
(cue me patiently waiting)
Right. I can't afford to buy that many copies either. So no worries folks! The good news is that there are still THREE MORE groovy issues to come. In fact, here's a bit of a preview of our next issue:
ISSUE #6: "Cold Hearted"... is our special Valentine's Day issue! In it, we get to meet one of Mister Terrific's old flames, witness a changing of the guard at Holt Industries, and travel to the glacial outback of Iceland for a titanic battle between our hero and an awesome new villain called THE TOMORROW THIEF, who--by the way--speaks French fluently.
Will I miss the book? You bet. But you know what they say about the best laid plans of mice and men. For this reason, starting next month, I'll be taking a few moments to share some behind-the-scenes stuff with you. This book was always a labour (yeah, I love the English spelling better, so THERE!) of love, and I think there are some "making-of" moments that you'll enjoy. Call it a "peek into the process" of sorts. And last, but certainly not least...
THANKS TO ALL THE WONDERFUL FANS WHO BOUGHT AND CONTINUE TO SUPPORT THIS BOOK! YOU FOLKS ARE THE BEST!
And here's even better news: there's waaaay more exciting stuff coming in 2012 from Yours Truly, so STAY TUNED.
