This is it! The end of the line. The final issue of the All-New Ultimates 12 part series hits the stands today!
Before I get deep into it, thank you all for supporting this book. Please check out this full list of everyone who worked on the book (with additional art)!
The creator credits for all the characters we used are another monster altogether.

COPRA SUBSCRIPTIONS 2015 are now live and on sale! The subscription guarantees you a copy of every COPRA issue before they’re long gone.
This is a 6 issue subscription for COPRA #s 19 – 24, which will be mailed out in January. Shipping costs are usually as low as possible, but all subscribers will save a few extra dollars on top of that. International orders welcome!
Every subscription order that is placed from now, Friday Nov. 28th, to Monday Dec. 1st will receive a free, handmade screen print of our man VITAS — roughly 5 x 6, I gotta cut it up first! Supplies are limited, and you won’t be able to find it anywhere else. It’ll be made specifically for those who subscribe within this weekend sale.
This next batch will reunite the team, get back to the hunt, tie up some loose ends, usher in new crews, and complicate things for our friends in COPRA. It’ll be six intense issues. COPRA will also run a back up feature by one of my favorite cartoonists (more on that soon!) — what else can I say? It’s going to be killer.
Also on sale for the holiday weekend: original comic book pages and all the ZEGAS & COPRA comics you’ll need. Some issue are mighty close to being sold out, by the way. Don’t miss out on the raw material for “COPRA Round Three“!
Thanks for a great year, gang! Your support and enthusiasm never fails to get me pumped for more comics making. This next year is gonna be even better with new stories & characters, awesome surprises and crazy projects all on the horizon.
See you next year — and happy holidays!
C O M I C S !
COPRA Round Two will be released January 2015 and will be available for PRE-ORDER really soon!
C O N V E N T I O N !
Next Saturday November 8th I’ll be at Comic Arts Brooklyn. I will have tons of comics on hand: COPRA Round One, COPRA issues, and the complete ZEGAS set of comics. Get them all there at TABLE D27.
I N T E R V I E W S !
Check out the Comics Therapy podcast to listen to me ramble from the couch. Oh, yeah, and on CBR, as well!
I drew a BOWMAN pin up for Pat Aulisio’s forthcoming collection. Pat runs Yeah Dude Comics.
I was interviewed at The Comics Journal.
The image above is the original art for the back cover puzzle piece that ran in the original first 12 issues (it’s officially part of the original art community).
Anyway, about the interview. I cover everything, but I put a special spotlight on this impressionable comic:
Can’t get enough of my jabbering? You’re in luck. I was part of this massive oral history regarding a cultural relic: the trading card. Check out The Secret Origins & Lasting Impact of the Marvel Universe Cards, if only to at least to read Arthur Adams’ words.
After last year’s first 12 issues of Copra, I dedicated the subsequent issues to some team members. Thirteen to Eighteen, six comics. You can find them all here, so get them now while supplies last! I’ve always wanted to say that.
But no, really… if those first 12 are any indication, these comics will remain out of pint until Round Three (and that may be a while). Here’s a handy rundown list, accompanied by little heads.
Don’t delay. Operators are standing by.
Okay, I’ll stop.
ZEGAS is back in print and available again! This is the title that started my self-publishing operation, Copra Press, and set the path for subsequent projects (Deathzone! & Copra). I’m still very proud of these comics and I couldn’t let them remain out of print much longer.
If you’ve never read ZEGAS before, here’s your chance to catch up on all three issues: the ZEGAS PACK. If you’ve managed to get an issue here or an issue there, you can also pick and choose which one you need individually: Issues ONE, TWO, or ZERO!
The print run is still super limited, so get them now while they last!
EXTRA: My contribution to Zainab Akhtar’s Comics Shelfie is up, over at her Comics & Cola blog.
Copra #18 has arrived! it’s the Xenia issue, the magic issue, the losing your grip on reality which is inconvenient for everybody because of your godlike powers issue.
It’s also the issue that brings this arc to a close. I’ve been focusing on key members of Copra issue by issue, and this Xenia story winds it all down while also setting up the next arc.
That was a small sampler of my favorite issue yet. And while I’m taking a hiatus between 6 issue story arcs, I can’t wait to jump back on and get into the reformed Copra team’s new adventures.
We’ll be back before you realize we were gone, but NOW – right this very second – get on board with Copra #18!
P.S. Zegas is back as well! More on that soon…
Think you’re gonna get the urge to go a comic shop anytime soon? Does that store like to order directly from Diamond? They might even be interested in ordering COPRA: ROUND ONE — and you can make it easier on them. Just print this Retailer Order Form (above) at home and take it to them.
