NATURE V. NURTURE: A Greg Rucka Newsletter
Volume 4. Issue 2.
“Welcome to Summer” Edition
Atticus is back.
There’s an excerpt here. Read it. Savor it. Then ask yourself all the questions that must be asked: how, what, why, and what the hell is going on?
If you haven’t looked at CRITICAL SPACE in a while, you might want to thumb through that, too, just to refresh your memory. And for those of you who haven’t read CRITICAL SPACE, might I suggest that now would be a good time to add it to your summer reading list?
Trust me on this—PATRIOT ACTS stands alone, and you can come to it cold and enjoy the hell out of it. But if you’re a fan of the series, now’s the time to refresh. All those questions that were asked but left unanswered at the end of CRITICAL? Here come the answers, and like most truths, they don’t come easy.
Will post signing schedules and similar events on the web-site, and list them in upcoming newsletters.
WHITEOUT: THE MOVIE
Filming has wrapped. How do I know this? I was there. Went up to Montreal to watch the filming in early May, and was offered a job assisting with rewrites. Stayed until just before the final shot.
An amazing experience.
Further news on this front is embargoed by the studio, but look for more information as we approach release. Right now, the word is that the film will be in theaters Summer ’08. And trust me, it’s going to look stunning.
BLOG? WHAT BLOG?
I caved. I’ve got a blog. Updated with reasonable frequency, given my schedule. Mostly, I talk about the work and the process, for those interested in that kind of thing. Occasionally, I uncork on some unsuspecting topic that never saw it coming and most likely doesn’t deserve my ire. Sometimes I even talk about other thing.
But mostly, I just ramble.
The Song I Can Never Write is here.
If you’re not sick of me yet, there’s a new video interview up on the web-site here, filmed when I was in NYC back in February.
OF BIBLES OF CRIME AND GAMES OF CHESS AND OTHER LIKE THINGS
Work for DC continues. The last couple issues of Checkmate, I feel, have been the best of the series thus far, and it’s just getting better. If you haven’t picked it up, I urge you to. The trade of the first half-dozen issues or so is out now, and is available in book stores.
The Crime Bible mini-series has been announced, as well, and will start soliciting next month. The series is titled The Crime Bible: The Five Books of Blood, and it features the Question, as well as peeling back the curtain on the “religion of crime” in the DCU. I can honestly say, this is the second-most fun thing I’m working on at the moment.
And the first most? Ah—not yet, that’s for San Diego. But since you asked so nicely, here’s a piece of art to tide you over for a bit, drawn by Matthew Southworth.
Look for an announcement from Oni Press around San Diego.
Convention season is here, and I’m doing, get this, one. San Diego. That’s it. Signing schedule will be posted as soon as I know it. Look for me at Oni, Bantam, and DC—and I’m told that there may even be Whiteout footage shown at the con!
