Lot’s of talk about launching (and re-launching) new comics series #1s, waiting-for-the-trade, and how Amy Reeder and I make Rocket Girl work as a creator-owned comic.

Page from EERIE #5 story KING OF ALL MONSTERS.
I’m jazzed to have a short story in Eerie #5, in stores July 9.  It’s a Godzilla-type tale, with a twist of course… because, well, that’s what Creepy & Eerie are all about.
Art by the amazing Henry Flint—which was my favorite part of doing this project.
While the Warren magazines were published before my time, they were abundant in quarter bins at comics conventions—and Creepy & Eerie became two of my all-time favorites. So it’s really cool to be able to contribute to the new versions.  It’s also the first time I’m being published by Dark Horse—another treat, as I’ve been a fan of not just their books but also their approach to publishing for all of my comics reading life.

3-pages from ROCKET GIRL #4.  Double-page spread opens up the alternate 2013, where a couple of teenage cops question whether their plan to undo their own history was the right move.  For my part, a lot of this came from the bar in Akira. That underground saloon also had a lot of teen patrons.  But instead of a bald muscle man tending bar, Rocket Girl has Tiff.  Artist Amy Reeder sexed her up more than a bit—not just because that’s the kind of girl that would work in a place like this, but to really drive home the dichotomy of a teen police force.  She is herself from a totally different world than 13-year-old Commissioner Gomez.

Rocket Girl is available on March 19.  You can get all the issues in digital format for your computer, phone, and tablet here: https://imagecomics.com/comics/releases/rocket-girl-1 Print copies at your local comics shop.

Shamrock is getting ‘eyed’—but I don’t think it’s suspiciously.  Either way, Happy St Patrick’s Day.

I had dinner with Frank Miller the day I drew that. He looked at it, was quite for a minute, sat back and said “When I think about Batman: Year One, all I can remember is needing to make rent.” when I sold that page, all I could think about was making rent. When I sold that page, all I could think about was making rent.

-Paul Pope on Batman and making rent 

The fourth original page is the subject of the quote and the third is owned by Brandon Montclare who edited the book; he reflects here.

The batcycle is one of the few infamous parts of Batman: Year 100 that Christopher Nolan lifted for his Dark Knight Trilogy.

I’m holding a giveaway/poster contest with Z2 Comics for fans to win copies of Paul Pope’s new book Escapo!
