Final edits are coming along great so I’m on schedule for publication next year. Don’t know when I’ll get to book two though. It’s written but not typed.

Teen Titans Annual #2 My Future, My Enemy Okay, so this future cannot be the future of earth 1 because as events are right now, Gar is red, no longer green, and Rose was stabbed to “death” by her own father. So again, not sure what exactly was happening in this issue. It felt rushed, as though the author was trying to … Continue reading Week 44 2013 | Part 2 | Comic Reviews
