The Shield: Adam And Chuck Make Comics For Dark Circle

OH, HEY, WHAT’S THAT.

Oh, y’know, maybe it’s just Adam Christopher and Yours Truly tackling the rebooted, gender-flipped The Shield for the Archie comics Red Circle revamp, Dark Circle Comics.

We’ve got Wilfredo Torres making magic on the art machine.

(And we’re totally in USA Today talking about it.)

And we join other creators revamping the Red Circle titles, too — Duane Swierczynski and Michael Gaydos on Black Hood, plus Mark Waid and Dean Haspiel on The Fox.

Really excellent company, yeah? Yeah.

All this under the editorial iron fists of Masters Alex Segura and Paul Kaminski, both of whom deserve eternal thanks for letting us two cuckoopants novelists play in their comic book sandbox and create our own “Daughter of the Revolution.”

So, in other words: holy crap.

Adam and I have worked on some other comic ideas before this — honestly, we work well together. He’s a pal and a gifted writer. If you don’t know Adam, you will. (You should familiarize yourself with his work, stat. If you want a free taste, check out Cold War at Tor.com right now.)

More soon (including, I think, some thoughts on gender-flipping and diversity in comics).

In the meantime, you can find Adam and I at our Tumblr: Adam And Chuck Make Comics.

I’d like to thank those amazing comic writers who inspire me (and, I’m sure, Adam as well): Gail Simone, Greg Rucka, James Robinson, Marjorie Liu, Kieron Gillen, Kurt Busiek, Kate Leth, Alex de Campi, Kelly Sue DeConnick, Christopher Sebela, Paul Tobin, Caitlin Kittredge, Faith Erin Hicks, Kurtis Wiebe, Matt Fraction, Neil Gaiman, Devin Grayson, Mike Mignola — you know, that list goes on and on and I could be here all day.

HA HA HA I GET TO MAKE COMICS NOW WHEE

MY ALL-OUT ASSAULT ON ALL FORMS OF WRITING AND STORYTELLING CONTINUE

Ahem.

I’m excited, what can I say?

Oh, and one last parting shot of The Shield
