So, hey.

I’m writing for DC Comics now too.

Coming this February…

DC COMICS PRESENTS #17, featuring HELL YEAH cover artist RICKEN making her drawing American interiors debut in an self-contained issue written by yours truly.

Here’s the official description from DC Comics:

Fans of DC UNIVERSE PRESENTS have already seen characters such as Deadman, The Challengers of the Unknown, Vandal Savage, Kid Flash, and Black Lightning and Blue Devil take center stage in this anthology-style series. Today, we’re pleased to announce that joining the ranks of these characters is RED HOOD AND THE OUTLAWS’ Arsenal!

Roy Harper is all too familiar with the road to hell being paved with good intentions, so he’s not totally surprised when an attempt to help Killer Croc leaves him running for his life on the streets of Japan. Also guest-starring Red Hood and Starfire, DC UNIVERSE PRESENTS #17 is a special one-shot that comes to you from writer Joe Keatinge and artist Ricken.

Below, take an exclusive first look at DC UNIVERSE PRESENTS #17 by checking out Ryan Sook’s cover for the issue, which hits store on February 20th.
