Yes, it's BATMAN

The cat (or should that be bat) is finally out of the bag regarding my Big Shiny New DCU Project That I'm Not Allowed To Talk About Yet - it's a six-issue BATMAN story.

Unfortunately, I'm not allowed to tell you anything else about it, including who's illustrating it. So, um, that's all you get for now. Watch this space, I guess...


Meanwhile, I've just started my Other Big Shiny New DCU Project That I'm Not Allowed To Talk About Yet But Which Isn't Batman. It's an origin story. No tights, no capes, no masks, just action. And the mighty Jock is drawing it!

This one's gonna be good.

Insert "Losers/Winners" Pun Here

Hey, Jock's been nominated for the Eisner Award for Best Cover Artist for his work on THE LOSERS! And about time too, I say.

Everybody try to psychically sway the panel of judges. It can't be illegal if it's psychic.
