You all may have noticed things go a little dormant in these parts. The site is currently in the process of being updated, both in design, and in content. Stay tuned!
Still recovering from traumas both physical and emotional, Jad Bell is tasked with bringing in the Uzbek, principal organizer of the terrorist attack that nearly cost Bell his ex-wife and daughter. But the Uzbek’s just the beginning: his employer, the Architect, has already set in motion another, even more devastating attack.
At the center of it all are two women under deep cover. One, as beautiful as she is deadly, has just been dispatched on American soil to execute the Architect’s deadly plans. The other is an American just emerging from a complex web of lies, whose intel may be the only hope Bell has to stop the assault before it begins. But after years of pretending to be somebody else, can she be trusted?

Comic Book Resources has a preview of Greg’s newest series, Veil, due out from Dark Horse this March.
Art is by Toni Fejzula. The solicitation copy for the book reads: “A beautiful girl wakes up in an abandoned subway station with no memory of how she got there. When men try to hurt her . . . they wind up dead. Where did she come from? And what is she capable of?”
Find out March 5!
If you’re in the Manhattan area next Monday (October 7), drop by and see Greg at Forbidden Planet. He’ll be signing with fellow Image Comics writers Ales Kot and Frank Barbiere at 7 PM. For more details, check out the Forbidden Planet site.
If you’re in town for New York Comic Con, Greg will be there as well! At 1:15 PM on Sunday, he’ll be on a panel called “LAZARUS: Family, Wealth and Violence in the Near-Future” with artist Michael Lark to talk about their acclaimed book from Image. Here’s a description of what the panel holds in store:
Michael Lark and Greg Rucka, two of the award-winning masterminds behind Gotham Central, have teamed up once again for LAZARUS, a hit series set in a dystopian near-future. Governments are a thing of the past, having given way to enormous economic disparity and the rise of semi-feudalism. Families control the world and each Family’s Lazarus is a person who serves to guard the Family from threats, whether they be from within or without. Rucka and Lark, hot off the finale of their first arc, are here and ready to answer your questions about the world that’s coming, the roots of the science in the series and just how tough it can be to imagine what tomorrow looks like.
Today sees the release of Lazarus #3 from Greg, Michael Lark, Santi Arcas, and Image Comics! Comic Book Resources has a preview available at their site.
It also sees the arrival of American Vampire Anthology, featuring a number of short stories from acclaimed comic creators, including Greg and John Paul Leon’s contribution, “Portland, 1940.”
Both of these comics are available in print at your local comic store, or digitally from the publishers!
Don’t forget that today marks the release of Lazarus from Greg and artist Michael Lark, published by Image Comics.
If you’re in the Lacey, Washington, area, please drop by Olympic Cards & Comics on June 26, when Greg will be signing, starting from 3:00 PM.
If you’re in the Portland, Oregon, area, come see Greg at Bridge City Comics on July 5, where he’ll be signing starting at 6:00 PM.
If you’re at neither of those places, fret not: here’s a taste of the story in PDF form (or, you know, you could just pick it up today)!
If you haven’t heard by now, the Kickstarter campaign to publish the first collection of Greg’s webcomic with artist Rick Burchett, Lady Sabre & The Pirates of the Ineffable Aether, was a success and then some. Thanks to everyone who supported the campaign by backing or spreading the word!
Greg and Rick will be celebrating this weekend at HeroesCon in Charlotte, NC, at tables AA801 and AA802. Greg has listed descriptions of panels on which he’ll be appearing, as well as his policies on signing (he’ll sign pretty much anything he’s done) over at his Tumblr.
You all may have noticed that we launched a Kickstarter campaign for our webcomic, Lady Sabre & The Pirates of the Ineffable Aether, this Monday, and it would be fair to say it went better than we ever expected.
We’d still like to invite you to take a look at the campaign, which will fund a print edition of the first volume of our comic. We’re very proud of the work we’ve done so far, and are now going to be able to print the book we’ve always wanted since Lady Sabre began. Thank you!
Lazarus is now available for pre-order with code APR130420. To entice you, here’s a preview of the first issue (PDF, 1383KB).
Lazarus by Greg, artist Michael Lark, and colorist Santiago Arcas will be published by Image Comics this June.
