Matt's New Gig

I've known this news for a little while, but it's finally announced and official. My old college pal and erstwhile roommate Matt Sturges has a new gig, writing one of my favorite DC books of the moment, Blue Beetle.

Here's the solicit...
Written by Matthew Sturges
Art and cover by Rafael Albuquerque
New series writer Matthew Sturges (JACK OF FABLES, HOUSE OF MYSTERY) comes aboard to kick off “Boundaries,” with returning series artist Rafael Albuquerque! As Blue Beetle struggles to establish himself as the protector of El Paso and Cuidad Juarez, he finds himself thrown into the heart of the immigration struggle, made all the more complicated by the involvement of Intergang — and another, more mysterious, figure. Coming at you straight outta Texas, Sturges takes our hero into new territory as Beetle works out his responsibilities as both a hero in the DC Universe and a citizen of a border town.
On sale July 30 • 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US

"Straight outta Texas." That sounds very street, doesn't it?

Anyhow, if you're interested in hearing Matt's plans for the book, check out the first couple of interviews with him on the subject. I, for one, can't wait to see what he does with the book!
