INJECTION is delayed indefinitely while Declan Shalvey works on other projects. He is a Large Important Boy in the comics game now, and has no time for my whimsical yarns of haunted AI until year’s end. Please buy his new book BOG BODIES, it’s very good. Jordie Bellaire, who now writes comics better than I do, doesn’t even remember who I am.
TREES Book 3 is out on March 18. This is the last TREES book for the foreseeable future, as Jason Howard is working on other projects, the big one of which I expect to see announced over the summer. He wrote it himself and it’s also very good.
Another TREES point: There is no “rest of the story.” TREES was always intended to be an anthology-like series. There are lots of TREES and the intent was always to wander the world and drop in on places and stories. Although I have ideas for, say, Vince in New York, or Jo Creasy, or Zhen, Book 2 certainly stands as a conclusion to many people’s personal stories, and, if there’s ever a Book 4, it wouldn’t necessarily pick anyone back up again.
CASTLEVANIA Season 3 goes live March 5, only on Netflix. It will be several weeks before we even get a hint as to whether we’ll get to do a Season 4 — it’s not in our hands, it’s Netflix’ decision.
THE BATMAN’S GRAVE takes a skip month after issue 6 and then returns to complete the 12-issue run without further interruptions. As noted in that sentence, it is a twelve-episode story with no extension, continuation or sequel planned or discussed.
FINALITY: My friend and collaborator Colleen Doran got seriously ill and was out of commission for a long time. She tells me she thinks she can get back to it this year, so I’m going to resume writing soon. Right now she has a beautiful book out called THE CLOCK that you should look for.
WILDCATS: cancelled. The artist didn’t want to draw it after all and no replacement was found.
MORE COMICS: I have no more comics work scheduled at this time. All my potential collaborators are busy, writing for themselves or ignoring my increasingly desperate and tear-stained emails. I was out of comics so long that most people think I’m either dead or a mythical creature.
Let’s see if anyone reads this.
