The grand finale of my THE BIGGEST BANG #1 signing mini-tour will be at Golden Apple Comics on Melrose Ave in Los Angeles this Saturday, May 28th, from 12pm to 4pm!

There will also be a huge announcement regarding a surprise upcoming superstar store signing at 1pm that day. They’ll be handing out line passes to 50 lucky comic fans, so if that mystery double-entices you, all the better!

So swing by for the mystery guest info, then buy a singed copy of my new IDW Publishing cosmic superhero mini-series– it’s a win win!

The_Biggest_Bang_1_social_media_sm

Today’s the final order cutoff (FOC) for IDW Publishing‘s THE BIGGEST BANG #1! If you want to be 100% sure your local comic shop has a copy for you when it comes out on May 18th, let them know before they close this evening! (You can still tell them you want it after today or just snag it on the stands after it’s released, but today’s when shops place their final initial orders. If comics were movies, the FOC is kind of how the opening weekend box office is determined.)

If you’re on the fence about the book, check out what some of the best comic creators in the business had to say about it in the image above.

Here’s the official solicit:

Publisher: IDW PUBLISHING

Writer: D.J. Kirkbride Artist: Vassilis Gogtzilas

Letterer: Frank Cvetkovic Editor: Justin Eisinger

Born in the cataclysmic cosmic catastrophe known as “The Bigger Bang,” Cosmos traversed the barren egg-lands in-between universes, discovered the wisdom of space whales, defeated intergalactic evil, and found love! Now a new threat presents itself, one the hero has never known… worship! What can he give those who would call him God? Intergalactic action and pataphysical philosophy return in THE BIGGEST BANG, the thrilling sequel to the mini-series Den of Geek called one of “the best comics of 2015”!

Item Code: MAR160383 (standard) MAR160384 (variant)

In Shops: 5/18/2016

Cover Price: $3.99

Please spread the word and help build up the excitement! Thanks, and hooray for comics!

3 Comics Out in 1 Day! [Feb. 17th, 2016|09:10 am]
D.J.
[Tags|, , , , , , ]

Forgive me if this seems braggy, but I can’t help it! For the first time in my 80 years on this earth, I have three comics featuring words co-written by me (with the Hall to my Oats, Adam P. Knave) coming out in one day. It’s nutty.

AC26_coverAMELIA COLE #26: The End of Everything Part 2

The final arc charges forward as Amelia tries something CRAZY. So crazy, it just might work. Probably. (Check out that glorious Nick Brokenshire cover! And this one also has a cool Amelia Cole pinup by none other than Eisner Award winning Bandette co-creator Colleen Coover!)

LASER JOAN and THE RAYGUNS part 1 (of 3) in DARK HORSE PRESENTS #19

Famous pop stars / secret secret agents! Sound familiar? Maybe, but the story’s never been told like this before! Adam, artist Robert Wilson IV, and I created these characters back in 2011, so it’s great to finally have them out there for readers to see — in all the awards winning Dark Horse Presents, no less!

Bill-Teds-Most-Triumphant-Return-TPB-1-600x923

BILL & TED’S MOST TRIUMPHANT RETURN trade collection

Adam and I contributed a backup story to the third issue of this most excellent follow-up to the Bill & Ted movies with artist Wook Jin Clark— and it’s included in this non-non-non heinous trade collection!

So, please, check out these comics and keep an eye out for new work on the horizon. Thanks so much!
