Coming in September



(W) Benito Cereno (A) Les McClaine The Ticks and Arthurs of two worlds - er, two times, nowadays and golden age days - must team up in The Present to foil the plot of The Terror - uh, two Terrors, the current one and his golden age version - to restore some semblance of sanity to The Tick Universe!

A couple of things

Two things about the Guardians of the Globe:

1) Coming in September:



GUARDIANS OF THE GLOBE #2
story ROBERT KIRKMAN & BENITO CERENO
art & cover RANSOM GETTY & FCO PLASCENCIA
SEPTEMBER 29
32 PAGES / FC
$3.50
As the VILTRUMITE WAR rages on within the pages of INVINCIBLE, the ranks of the Guardians of the Globe are suddenly depleted. The Guardians recruitment drive is interrupted as a distress call comes in from Aquarus: Octoboss has taken over Atlantis! Now the recruits are thrown head first into battle—let’s hope they’re ready. If only Invincible were there to help...

2) Here is an interview I did at Newsarama about the Guardians of the Globe.

Here is one thing about the Tick:

1) Hitting shelves on Wednesday, The Tick New Series #4:



(W) Benito Cereno
(A) Les McClaine

The City is being inundated by torrential downpours, forcing The Tick and his friends indoors to play board games while unknown to them an epic "undersea" battle takes place in the now underwater streets for control of The City! Will The City survive the battle between its wacky watery heroes and villains as they finally get their shot at the spotlight! And can the The Tick escape the hell of "board game night" and join the fray? All this, plus a bonus Mike Oeming backup story.


This is my favorite issue of the series so far. I hope you guys love it as much as I do.

Looking for artist/collaborator

Hello, the world.

My name is Benito Cereno, and I write comic books.

Currently I write The Tick for New England Comics and I am the co-writer on the forthcoming Guardians of the Globe series with Robert Kirkman for Image Comics. In the past I have written such titles as Invincible Presents: Atom Eve, Invincible Presents: Atom Eve and Rex Splode, Tales from the Bully Pulpit, and Hector Plasm.

I am always looking for a new project to work on, and so I am seeing if there are any professional or aspiring artists out there who would like to collaborate with me on a project for print.

I am not necessarily looking for someone to work on a pre-existing property or concept, but someone who would like to work together to create a new property.

If your skills and work ethic are of a professional grade and you would like to work with me or would like more information, please send me an e-mail with art sample at benito AT fetorpse.org.

Thanks!

This series is a can’t-miss action extravaganza!

Anti-social Networking

If you have ever wondered either aloud or internally to yourself why I do not have any noticeable presence on Facebook, the world's most popular social networking site until Friendster gets back on its feet, you are not alone (I assume).

So in an attempt to rectify that, here is a thing that Nate and I made:

Benito & Nate's Thing on the Facebook

Please feel free to go, say that you "like" us, and contribute to any and all discussions that we might hold there. We will try to keep you updated on news on releases and con appearances and what have you. (I will also continue to post such information here, but that one will have stuff about Nate, too, unfortunately.)

Enjoy! Tell all your friendsters!

Hitting Wednesdays! Available in a million places online if your store isn't carrying it! Please, if you read it and like it--and you WILL, because it is the best of the series so far--please do something to help spread the word. Post a review on a message board or blog, or just tell your Twitter friends, or whatever! Word of mouth sells books! Selling books keeps those books coming out! Help me help you!

Anyway, I'm pretty excited. Like I said, it's the best so far.

But not as good as issue 4.

-------------------

And if you pick it up and read it, on the sly, I will tell you, the original opening line of the text piece was "I promise I'm not trying to make fetch happen."

But I had to change it. But just between us, you know.

-------------------

If you buy it Wednesday, let me know what you thought, okay?
