THE SHIELD round-up!

As you might know, I’m co-writing The Shield with Chuck Wendig for Dark Circle Comics, the superhero imprint of Archie Comics. The Shield is one of three core books forming the relaunch, and will be joined by Black Hood and The Fox in early 2015.

Let’s not mince words. This is pretty gosh darned amazing.

There’s going to be lots of info coming soon, and maybe some stuff to show off. But in the meantime I’m compiling a list of links to interviews, features, news and podcasts. This list isn’t comprehensive, as we got a heck of a lot of coverage, but I’ll periodically update everything via the COMICS link at the top of my website.
