'Kings Crown' was originally published in Metal Hurlant. Ridley Scott's favourite comic. Written by me and drawn by the legendary Richard Corben, it's medieval grunge as our mc Guillame fights all-comers trying to win the king's crown. And trust me it builds up to one humdinger of a sting in the tale. The story is now heading for TV; adapted for the upcoming 'Metal Hurlant Chronicles'. Wowser! In fact when I first saw the trailer on LC's phone - having just got back from Hi-Ex in Inverness - when I got up the next morning I was sure I had dreamt it. (LC reassured me that I hadn't.) "Trailer," I hear you cry - yes trailer, and here's the link -

Cartoon Network Action Pack #67 is out now. It's the final issue from DC. There won't be another one. Taking the wild wacky world of comics as a whole, it's probably not particularly newsworthy, but indulge me a moment, it's the end of an era. My association with the title was in the main as writer of Samurai Jack - including Aku's Fairy Tales - and by gum there are some good 'uns in there. Latterly I scripted a couple of Ben 10s and for the final issue a Generator Rex tale called 'Wood for the Trees'. It's an enjoyable yarn; contains some good liners; wasn't originally scheduled for this issue but included as a last minute thing, but you know what, it's a pleasant and warm feeling to be in the very last one. Many thanks to all my co-conspirators (and over the years there's been a few of you). Cartoon Network Action Pack helped me become a better writer. As one door closes, lots more doors to open.
