News 'n' Views - July 2018

Howdy, howdy! I've got some pretty big news to share but FIRST...

How's your summer going? Mine's been all right--ok that's me being slightly dishonest. It's been pretty stressful and very unsummer-like. Things have been on the stressful side in terms of family and personal stuff that's had my head in a tizzy. Then I went and caught a nasty cold--summer colds are possibly the grossest things to happen to the human body. It's also been rainy and damp all week and I've felt like I've been in a permanent mental fog. So that's been... fun?


I'll be writing the all-new BETTY & VERONICA series out later this year from Archie Comics! I've had a blast writing Vixens and I'm excited to continue writing for the two iconic characters--this time taking the girls into more uncharted territory--senior year of high school!

The news of the series broke at the New York Times. I know. Kind of a BFD and I'm still kind of in shock about it! You can read the full article about the milestone Archie #700 relaunch here. I also did a follow-up interview with SyFy Wire that you can read here

Here's a look at some promotional art by the amazing Marguerite Sauvage:


So yeah... I'm pretty excited and I hope you all dig it! And speaking of Betty & Veronica... Betty & Veronica: Vixens Vol. 1 is available in bookstores everywhere now! It collects the first arc/5 issues of Vixens. It's super weird to actually see my name on something in bookstores--but very, very cool.  


And one more writerly update before I go and down myself in Mucinex--my newest Razorcake article is live! In it I discuss my attempts at managing my anxiety by digital means. One of which is my own personal therapy of writing these articles every other month. They really help put things in perspective for me and I'm always honored when people reach out to tell me that they can connect with them. I'm super thankful to Razorcake for letting me sharing my stories.

That's all I got now! Time to bid you all achoo! ;)


September Update: VIXENS, RAZORCAKE and more!

Howdy, howdy, howdy! I haven't given a proper update in quite some time--sorry about that!--but that doesn't mean I haven't been writing. Albeit, I've fallen massively behind on my personal writing endeavors, but it's all good cuz I've got some awesome writerly news to share with you:

I'm going to be writing a brand new COMIC BOOK called BETTY & VERONICA: VIXENS coming to comic shops this November! Archie Comics' iconic BFFs Betty & Veronica get a badass makeover and start an all-female motorcycle gang--think if Betty and Veronica were in a Russ Meyer/Quentin Tarantino/John Waters film, with art by Eva Cabrera, colors by Elaina Unger and letters by Rachel Deering.

I'm super stoked to be working on this and I hope y'all add it to your comic pull lists or just grab a copy at your local comic shop on November 15th.  

Here's the article from The Hollywood Reporter (holy poop!) announcing the title. And here's an interview I did with The Mary Sue about it. 

And I've still been working with Razorcake on my bi-monthly articles, I just didn't get a chance to post the most recent ones up on here. The first is about my penchant (and simultaneous disdain) for clutter, and the most recent one is about our dear leader and how I really, really don't like nuclear war. 


I hope to have even more cool stuff to share with you in the near future! Happy September!
