read my stuff while you’re stuck at home, part 5: comic book work


So many of us are kinda stuck staying home a lot, and that means more reading time! Or, at least, time spent reading so you don’t go batshit because you’re stuck staying at home a lot……

As one possible thing to read, how about my writing? I’ve already posted about my various writings based on TV shows — including my Star Trek work and my work based on other showswork based on movies, and work based on games and gaming. Now we look at stuff based on comic books, including prose based on comics characters, nonfiction about comics properties and comics adaptations, and a couple of comics I’ve done that don’t fit in the previous posts.

DC Comics

Nonfiction series:

  • Holy Rewatch, Batman!” on — my overview of the entirety of Batman ’66, including all three seasons, the movie, various related projects, and the two recent animated movie followups, written from 2015-2017 (and thus covering the show’s 50th anniversary in 2016)


Marvel Comics


  • Spider-Man: Venom’s Wrath (written with José R. Nieto) — my first novel, this novel features Robbie Robertson of the Daily Bugle, an NYPD captain, and Venom’s ex-wife all kidnapped by terrorists; Spider-Man must work with NYPD to find them before Venom tears apart the city to do likewise
  • Spider-Man: Down These Mean Streets — XXX is a new designer drug that not only gets you high, it gives you superpowers; Spidey must figure out who’s creating it and stop them
  • Thor: Dueling with Giants — Hrungnir, smarting from a defeat at the hands of Asgard and being tricked by Odin, kidnaps Frigga and challenges Thor to a duel — but the hand of Loki is behind all of it
  • Sif: Even Dragons Have Their Endings — the Lady Sif is called upon to defend the village of Flodbjerge from a dragon that is menacing it, but the dragon’s secret will cause even more trouble
  • Warriors Three: Godhood’s End — Hogun the Grim, Fandral the Dashing, and Volstagg the Voluminous go on a dangerous quest to retrieve the Golden Apples of Immortality, lest the gods of Asgard die of old age
  • Thor: Tales of Asgard — this is an omnibus of the above three novels, which at this point is the only way to get the Warriors Three book, sadly (it was originally released only as an eBook for some reason, and that eBook is no longer available)


Short stories:

  • “An Evening in the Bronx with Venom” (written with John Gregory Betancourt) in The Ultimate Spider-Man — my first short story, Venom is after someone, and Spidey must protect him, but there’s more to the story than anyone imagines
  • “Improper Procedure” in The Ultimate Silver Surfer — the Surfer almost ruins a hostage negotiation, and tries to make it up to the cops
  • “Arms and the Man” in Untold Tales of Spider-Man — an author tries to put together a biography of Dr. Otto Octavius, a.k.a. Doctor Octopus, and finds it a most dangerous pursuit
  • “Playing it SAFE” in The Ultimate Hulk — the U-Foes are after the Hulk, but behind their attack is an even more deadly foe
  • “Diary of a False Man” in X-Men Legends — the secret origin of the Changeling, the former villain who died in Professor X’s place
