Not so much news I’ve been sitting on, as news I was only semi-vaguely-aware of :p

Eeeps!

Gene Yang is writing Superman!

And then I realised it could well be… pioneering Nanyang artist Chua Mia Tee! One of my favourite Singaporean painters…

There’ll be a 2-page Green Turtle comic by Gene Yang and myself in the upcoming Defend Comics collection for Free Comic Books Day!

For over 25 years, the CBLDF has fought to protect your right to read, and that crusade continues with this light-hearted look at a serious topic. Defend Comics is a sampler of the great YA comics available, and explores the censorship of comics with some of today’s most talented creators! Writers on Defend Comics include Andi Watson, Gene Yang, George O’Connor, Dan Parent, Larry Marder and Jorge Aguirre, with art by Watson, Sonny Liew, O’Connor, Parent, Marder, and Rafael Rosado.”

Here’s a couple of panels from the comic :)
