In case you missed it, I’m going to be wrapping up my run ULTIMATE FF with issue 5. It’s heartbreaking, as I love those characters and the Ultimate Universe, and have spent a good amount of time the past couple years working on it.
But, it’s also the beginning of a very, very exciting time for me. For the foreseeable future, I’m putting my money where my mouth is. I’m going to be working almost exclusively on creator owned work.
This is a terrifying prospect after almost four years of work for hire at Marvel, DC, Dark Horse, IDW, et al. Every project I’m currently working on, save for one, I either own or own a piece of in some form. The one that I don’t is something so totally awesome that I couldn’t say no.
I’ve got a couple other things from Marvel that’ll be out soon, but, aside from those, I’m going to do my damnedest to live off my own ideas, both in comics and in other mediums, and, hopefully, not wind up homeless.
As my fans and supporters, I just ask you to keep following, keep preordering, and please, let people know about my books that you love. Shout from the rooftops, and know that you’re a part of this.
The response I’ve gotten to my creator owned work has been so heart warming and so much more gratifying than anything I could’ve ever imagined.
I should just say, I’m so incredibly grateful to Marvel, Tom, Axel, Mark, Emily, Lauren, Steve, Nick, and all the folks over there. And to Brian Bendis who’s been a huge supporter and champion for me.
But most of all, I hope you guys enjoyed what you read, and, I promise the best is yet to come.
