If you’ve been following me on twitter or tumblr recently, you’ve probably seen a few posts about Francesco Francavilla’s noir superhero masterpiece The Black Beetle. BB‘s the first comic that I’ve edited solo from the get go and it’s been a distinct pleasure working with someone as passionate and enthusiastic as Francesco. Dude’s pretty damn talented too. Pretty crazy to think that I own one of the lucky sets of eyeballs that gets to see his best work to date on a regular basis.
Francesco and I, as well as Dark Horse Publisher Mike Richardson, had high hopes for what originally felt like a niche comic. BB had oodles of potential, but truly great books get canceled all the time, so you never know. Thankfully, all the hard work FF poured into this baby paid off. It’s been extremely gratifying to see this little book live up to its greatest potential. And it’s still going!
So, for the sake of enjoying the moment and remembering this when I get old and gray, here’s some of the link journey that led us to this week, when we announced the sell out of issue #1.

Because I’m too much of a punk to compile a “Best of” list—and never feel I’ve read enough of the year’s top contenders to make a decent one—I’m continuing what’s become a bit of an annual tradition… I’ve compiled…
…A LIST OF THINGS THAT I READ IN 2012!
Get excited! Read more ›
Remember, back in September, when I relayed a story about how artist Evan Shaner had added a Jim Gibbons-related Easter egg to Buddy Cops, a story appearing in Dark Horse Presents? Well, that ain’t the only Jim Gibbons comic reference anymore! Read more ›
In 2011, the Ministry of Mustache Growth & Management raised an astounding $20,700. I hoped we could rise as high in the fundraising this year, but was very skeptical. I mean, last year, we aimed for $10K and somehow made it to $20K. I didn’t think we could be that lucky two years in a row.
Of course, luck had nothing to do with it. Between our 80 members and all of ours/their generous and supportive friends and family, we raised a grand total of $24,434! Incredible. Read more ›
I went to Japan. I came back. While I was gone, we raised a lot of money! The Ministry hit the $15K mark! The Midwest is rockin’ in at $9,508 and the Northwest is solidly supporting with $5,478! Pretty damn good… and we’ve even got a few days left! Read more ›

Friends, Romans, Countrymen, we’re a third of the way through Movember! Ten days in and 20 to go, and the Ministry of Mustache Growth and Management is killing it! So far, 44 of our 76 members have received donations. That’s 57 percent of the team and that percentage can only go up. The fact that 44 members have received donations is exactly why we’re sitting at a total of $5,256 in donations! Nicely done, gents! Read more ›
Another couple o’ days, another couple o’ mo’s! A little over a week and we’re really starting to see some growth here. Nice, gents! Read more ›
It’s the end of week one and the Ministry of Mustache Growth & Management has been killing it! We’ve raised a total of $4,276 ($2,218 from the Midwest and $1,994 from the Northwest) and gained a few more members, putting Ministry membership at 73! And, of those 73 members, 39 have received donations!
Definitely off to a good start! Read more ›
