One of the best SF series of all time. Not playing anywhere. That’s a shame. I have all mine on dvd.

At the Image Expo, J Michael Straczynski announced THE BOOK OF LOST SOULS, a series I drew for him at Marvel’s ICON line, will be moving to Image Comics under his new Joe’s Comics imprint in 2014. I will be back as well, and here is some new art!
I’ve had a sale on the BOOK OF LOST SOULS GN for awhile now, hoping to encourage my readers to pick up the previously collected issues before the announcement. Obviously, I could not tell you all what was coming! I’m super-excited and happy about this news and even though it won’t be out until next year, I am buzzing with excitement. It is incredibly cool to be wrapping up single digits of the A DISTANT SOIL series right now, while ramping up one of my all-time favorite projects, THE BOOK OF LOST SOULS, as well.
YOU CAN BUY THE COMPLETE trade paperback run in MINT uncirculated condition at my bookstore HERE!
Many news sites picked up the story yesterday, and here’s an interview with JMS at Comic Book Resources about the new series. FYI, the new series will be stand-alone and reader friendly. But, ahem, I have all the back issues for sale, as well as GN’s.
Many of these articles recycle the info, but there’s an interview at the Comic Book Resources link.
Here’s an interview with me at NEWSARAMA about ending A DISTANT SOIL and ramping up the projects I was not able to talk about yet, like LOST SOULS.
Get the backstory of The Pogues influence on the novel.
And important, game changing news from IMAGE COMICS: Image now offers a DRM-free online comics service, which means in addition to Comixology, you’ll be able to get excellent quality comic downloads direct from IMAGE that you can save and play on any device.
The first issue of A DISTANT SOIL available is issue 40, and back issues will go up over time. All future issues will be available as DRM free downloads.
I was there, and didn’t get to see a single event. I was on panels and at my booth and at meetings, so having this online is a treat. I assume(?) this recording is legal, because it is all over Youtube, but if I am wrong, I will take it down immediately.
Don’t feel too sorry for me: I got to have lunch sitting at the same table as John Barrowman and Dean Cain. Didn’t say a word to either one of them, but dang. I sure liked talking with Peter Jurasik. Delightful fellow. My friend Val Trullinger and I got some quality time.
Two big videos with all the good stuff from the Babylon 5 reunion! This is a tear jerker, folks.
Don’t forget: ending soon the BOOK OF LOST SOULS sale, graphic novel by J Michael Straczynski and me. Go get ‘em! You will be very sorry indeed if you don’t.
UPDATE: word is this is A-OK to post. Enjoy!

One of my very favorite projects EVER was The Book of Lost Souls, a series I drew for J Michael Straczynski at Marvel Comics’ Icon Line. I have rarely enjoyed any assignment so much, and count it among my best work. JMS recently announced on his FB fan page that he MAY be bringing this series back at his new imprint Joe’s Comics. OH MY!
Jonathan, in despair over lost love and thwarted ambitions, commits suicide. He awakens in the 21st century, where he is transformed into a psychopomp, a spirit who escorts lost souls. Does he save them or send them to their doom?
He acts on the orders of the Dark Man, and his guide is a talking cat named Mystery.
Unfortunately, The Book of Lost Souls just did not get the circulation it really deserved. It would make an outstanding TV series, IMHO.
Marvel collected the entire run in a handsome, full color trade paperback. Issue 3 is a heartbreaking story that will get right into the soul of any artist. It’s worth it on its own.
Nice Mr. Straczynski found and obtained the ENTIRE remaining stock of this trade paperback collection, and it is available here, minty fresh, uncirculated, for a super low price!
