A few months ago I interview my friend and great writer J. Torres about his new Degrassi High comic books and the interview went well. He’s a great guy and a skilled writer.
Today I’m talking to Andrew Troth, my good friend and owner of Mind’s Eye Comics, my favorite comic store in the world, and he asks me why I never told him I was writing the Degrassi comics. I thought he was pulling my leg till he mentioned that my name was in the Degrassi solicitations in Previews, which is the monthly ordering catalogue used worldwide to order comic books. And Degrassi is a popular franchise all over the world. So my good buddy Rob Worley scanned the solicitations for me and here’s what we found (click on either image for a larger version):
Trust me, I was shocked. I don’t know how Pocket Books, a well known company, could mess this up so badly, but I guess they just got their wires crossed somewhere. Let me reiterate: I did not write these comics. I would like to write comics at some point but remain unpublished despite having written a decent amount (including a 176-page original graphic novel). So if anyone wants to hire me, I’m happy to work for you, but I did not write these comics. J. Torres did and that’s why they’ll be great reads.
