For Sale

Unlike comic book artists, comic book writers have no original art or commissions to sell. What we do have are photocopies or printouts of many of the comic book scripts, series proposals, and book manuscripts that we've written. In my case, that includes stories for a wide range of characters, from Superman and Green Lantern to Archie Andrews and Scooby Doo...including some unpublished comic book scripts featuring Hawkman, Green Lantern, Supergirl, and Superboy. Please see a list of what is available, below.

I will happily personalize and autograph any script so please indicate how you would like me to sign.

I also have limited copies of comic books and books I have written or featuring stories I have written. These are also available personalized and autographed.

CHECKMATE! The Original Proposal + CHECKMATE! #1 Plot

An interesting look (at least I hope so) behind the pitching process in the comic book biz. This is the proposal for CHECKMATE!, the costumed spy series I created in 1988, spinning out of my 30+ issue run on VIGILANTE. CHECKMATE! ran 32 issues, plus crossovers with other books like SUICIDE SQUAD, as well as a recent 30-issue run under writer Greg Rucka.

John Byrne's original design for the Knights is included, as are Steve Erwin's character drawings for the new supporting characters and Checkmate! HQ designs. It's 9 pages of my proposal (outlining the agency, the characters, the command structure, series tone, possible storylines, etc., followed by 18 pages of art and designs (1 page by Byrne, the rest by Erwin).

But wait...there's more! Not Ginsu Knives (I wish!), but the plot  for CHECKMATE! #1! Act now!

CHECKMATE PROPOSAL & CHECKMATE#1 Plot...........$20.00
