House of Mystery #13 - out now!

In case it didn't make the television news where you live, today marks my professional debut in the world of comics.

House of Mystery #13, which contains my short story "13th Time's the Charm," illustrated by the legendary Neal Adams, is in comic shops now.

Here's the full listing from the May 2009 solicitations for DC Comics, in case you need a refresher...
Written by Matthew Sturges, Bill Willingham and Chris Roberson
Art by Neal Adams, Ralph Reese, Sergio Aragones and Eric Powell
Cover by Esao Andrews
Variant cover by Neal Adams
For its landmark 13th issue, HOUSE OF MYSTERY presents a special anthology featuring four separate stories written by Matthew Sturges, Bill Willingham and novelist Chris Roberson. This issue features the unique visuals of four artists including Neal Adams, Ralph Reese and Sergio Aragones, as well as a painted tale by Eric Powell (The Goon). Each story pays homage to that unluckiest of numbers.
Retailers please note: This issue will ship with two covers. For every 10 copies of the Standard Edition (with a cover by Esao Andrews), retailers may order one copy of the Variant Edition (with a cover by Neal Adams). Please see the Previews Order Form for more information.
On sale May 6 • 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US • MATURE READERS

There's a preview of the issue, including a few pages of the story by Willingham and Powell, online at Myspace.

I picked up a copy of the variant cover by Neal Adams, myself, which is tangentially related to my story.

But whichever cover you get, you're looking at quality stories from Sturges and Willingham, and art by Neal Adams, Ralph Reese, Sergio Aragones, and Eric Powell. What more could you ask for? Run out and buy a copy now! And remember, they make great stocking stuffers!

And when you get done reading it, head over to the Clockwork Storybook forums and let us know what you thought!

Congrats on your funnybook debut.

I still sort of hate you for landing none other than Neal Adams to illustrate your first ever comic story though.
I'm still finding it difficult to believe, myself.
