Finding my way to the Batcave

WARNING: This article contains spoilers for Batman: The Telltale Series. Don't read on you don't want to see them! Writing for a franchise like Batman is equal parts exciting, humbling, and terrifying. So many incredible versions of Bruce's story already exist. Comics, books, TV series, videogames, feature films... stage plays, probably. You can watch his parents' murder over and over again in [...]

YOU are Batman with Telltale’s new series

This is the required "Why are you reading this you should be playing Batman: The Telltale Series!" post. Today, Episode 1 - Realm of Shadows, is out on all platforms. This is the first of five episodes being released from now until December. It clocks in at about 2 hours with half of that playing as Bruce Wayne. In the recent [...]

Comicon 2016. And how tired I am now.

San Diego Comicon 2016 was exhausting, but the pattern is predictable. I roll into San Diego excited to see old friends and check out new things on the convention floor. I roll out a tired, sweaty, irritable husk of a man who needs more coffee. This year was no exception... and it was totally worth every second. Some highlights: Roadtripping [...]

Anyone headed down to Comicon this year? If so, my brother Nick and I will be signing our newly released trade paperback for Death Head. There will be single Issues #1-6 along with the graphic novel compendium which features all issues, covers, behind the scenes articles and making of artwork. It's a beautiful book which will be made even beautiful-er with our [...]

Trailer for Batman: A Telltale Series You know, it's strange. I was the Lead Writer on Episode 1 "Realm of Shadows" for Batman: A Telltale Series. I was responsible for a large portion of the script. I've been practically living in Gotham City for the past six months. But somehow, still, I was STUNNED when I saw this trailer. Tears-in-my-eyes level stunned. Telltale has elevated their interactive storytelling game [...]

It's everywhere! Dark Horse did an amazing job with the graphic novel version which collects all six issues, covers, making of artwork, and write ups from my brother Nick and I about the [...]

Telltale’s Batman. Justice is coming.

I've been so busy working on Batman that I haven't had time to talk about Batman. Now all I'm saying is Batman. Batman. The entire Telltale Games team has been hard at work getting the first 20 minutes polished up to show as a playable demo at E3. As Batman, it's thrilling and brutal. As Bruce Wayne, it's charming and sophisticated. [...]

Go sharpen your machete. It's a huge relief to finally see The Walking Dead: Michonne Episode 2 "Give No Shelter" finished because I've been working on it since August. As far as most game development goes, that's nothing. That's how long it takes to just write the script. Not at Telltale. Here, we make our episodes from script to screen in about six months so [...]

Give No Shelter

We have a title! The Walking Dead: Michonne Episode 2 is called "Give No Shelter" and will be released March 29th. Yes, it is basically the title of the Rolling Stones song. If you want to know how awesome the episode is going to be, just watch this video:

Joanna Estep (pencils/inks), Kelly Fitzpatrick (colors), EM Gist (cover), Nick and I (writing), plus Amanda Egle (interviewer)! The podcast covers an issue from concept to being on store shelves and [...]
