I’m going to be in New York for Comic Con all next week, mainly connecting with old friends and trying not to spend too much money, but also sitting on a panel Saturday, October 7, called “Making Ships Sail” from 12:15-1:15. I’ll also be signing advance copies of Cadaver & Queen afterwards–then running to the DC Booth at 4 pm to get interviewed about Mystik U. I’m excited, but also a little nervous–the crowds at the Javitz Center make me feel a little squirrely. So if you see me and I shoot you a glassy-eyed look of panic, please say something reassuring?

So, I’ve spent the weekend putting finishing touches on my second Batgirl script (translation, trying to make sure I haven’t screwed anything up in the overarching continuity) and now, at last, I think I am done. To celebrate, I am posting some art by the wonderful Rick Leonardi, who is brilliant at pointing out little things that make me think, “Wow, I should really have thought of that.”
