A TEAM-UP 50 YEARS IN THE MAKING!

Since taking over the reigns of Marvel’s SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN TEAM UP title last month with issue #9, I’ve had a great time contributing to the story arc of Superior Spider-Man’s fall from grace, as the ego-maniacal Spidey-Ock realizes he’s not so superior after all — The “rise” portion of the arc being written by the amazing Chris Yost, whose name (in a blow to my own ego) still graces the cover of SSMTU #10 due to an oversight on Marvel’s part. Nonetheless, the passing of the baton has gone very well (see a review of issue #9 here) and my only hope is that Marvel will accidentally put my name on the next THOR movie since Chris is also the brilliant writer behind that.

Moving forward, however, (because only the best people do) I’ll get a chance to add a storyline of my own next month by delving into the past and bringing two super-villains together who, oddly enough, have never truly appeared together since Spider-Man first swung onto the scene in 1962. Namely, the Green Goblin and Doctor Octopus. Arguably Spider-Man’s top two villains, these guys have never consciously shared the same page together (that we were aware of) yet all that will change with Superior Spider-Man Team-Up issues #11 and 12. And to mark the pivotal point at which this happens in the current Spider-Man time line, Paul Rivera has created two awesome covers that come together to create one amazing image. Read more about it here and pick up a few much needed chapters in Spider-Man’s history on comic book Wednesdays.

I am incredibly proud of this accomplishment and of the amazing team of talent that got us here. And if I haven’t bored you already than maybe you’d like to read more about it here. VIVA LA MAD!

SUPERIOR CARNAGE LIVES!

The Superior Carnage mini-series that I’m doing for Marvel has been a blast.  I talk about it more here, but make sure you pick up the latest issue if only for the awesome artwork from Stephen Segovia brought to beautiful life by the incredible color work of Jay Ramos. And as always, Clayton Crain delivers the most gripping covers.

Big thanks to Jeff Rivera for his flattering article in the Examiner. If only my doctor would examine me this nicely.

It will be a day long remembered! Next Wednesday, February 27th, at 7pm at Meltdown comics in Los Angeles, I will have the honor of being inducted into the legendary “501st,” a global organization which raises money for charities through it’s appreciation, celebration and awareness of STAR WARS, as displayed through it’s legion of quality-costumed SW characters. And since it took me a half hour to construct that last sentence, I will let Meltdown comics say the rest at their site here. But please, “Join me! (Said in my best Darth Vader) And we will rule the evening with helmets and guns!” Then catch the season three finale of MAD on Monday, March 4th for our reality series spoof, STAR WARS EARNED STRIPES. 8:30pm on Cartoon Network.

Monday Mornings premieres Monday Night on TNT

Monday Mornings

What do Alfred Molina and I have in common? Well, besides both of us being in the Robot Chicken: DC Comics special and besides the fact that we both love Raiders of the Lost Ark, we will, more importantly, both be in tonight’s episode of “Monday Mornings,” David E. Kelley’s new hospital drama airing tonight (Monday, February 4th) at 10pm on TNT. The good news is that my character comes back in a few episodes, but the great news is that Alfred Molina is a regular on the series, along with Ving Rhames, Jamie Bamber from Battlsestar Galactica and a slew of talented people including Keong Sim and Cara Pifko who I had the pleasure of sharing my scenes with. So tune in tonight and set those DVRs!

A Good Groundhog’s Day to have to repeat!

Last night Seth and I were presenters at the 40th Annual Annie awards, handing the award for Best Voice Acting In A Television Production to Kristen Schaal for “Gravity Falls” and Best Voice Acting in An Animated Feature to Alan Tudyk for “Wreck It Ralph.” In addition to presenting, I was also nominated against myself in the category of Best Animated Television Production, having worked on both MAD’s Halloween episode and the Robot Chicken: DC Comics special, so I knew it was going to be an awkward drive home since at least one of me was going home empty handed. As it turned out, Robot Chicken took the prize, giving us our third Annie award. All in all, a good day to have to live through again if there’s any truth to this Groundhog thing.
