    Angel City: Town Without Pity

    Janet Harvey and Megan Levens. Oni, $19.99 trade paper (168p) ISBN 978-1-62010-426-2

    Dolores Dare was once a starry-eyed ingénue, fresh off the bus from Muncie with a heart full of Hollywood dreams. Today, she’s an enforcer whose life is confined to Tinseltown’s shadows. When an old friend shows up in a dumpster, however, the tension between Dare’s past and present peaks–with violent results. Dare is embittered, exhausted, but ultimately hungry for justice. Though this midcentury noir treads familiar ground—slain starlets, mob bosses making their moves, intrepid journalists getting their hands dirty—Harvey (Batman) presents the story with style and verve. Levens (Madame Frankenstein) brings a wonderful visual weight to the cast: dresses drape luxuriously, suits strain at the shoulders, and the set lights throw the glamour and decay into sharp relief. This is Hollywood mystery at its most classic. (Aug.) - PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

  • Batman: No Man's Land, Vol. 3
    by Greg Rucka

    The new Batgirl, Cassandra Cain, was introduced in the "No Man's Land" event in 1999, and I wrote her first full-length comic book adventure: "I Cover the Waterfront" (Batman #569). She's a fantastic character, and I am proud to be a part of her origin story.

  • Put The Book Back On The Shelf: A Belle And Sebastian Anthology
    by Image Comics, Jamie S. Rich, Marc Ellerby, Jennifer De Guzman, Brian Belew, Mark Andrew Smith

    I had the privilege of being part of this Image Comics anthology, based on the songs of Belle and Sebastian. My story for "Lazy Line Painter Jane" was illustrated by the insanely talented Laurenn McCubbin.

  • Adventures of Duan Surk, The Volume 1: Witches' Forest

    I wrote the adaptation for the first two volumes of this series of YA novels from Tokyopop, based on the Duan Surk videogame universe. What that basically means is, I took a 100 page raw Japanese translation and turned it into a 200 page YA novel. It got some good reviews, too.

  • The Adventures of Duan Surk, Vol. 2: The Two-Headed Wizard (v. 2)
  • Hi Hi Puffy Amiyumi #3 June 2006 (Cartoon Network DC Comic Book)
    by Janet Harvey

    I did three stories for the "Hi! Hi! Puffy Ami Yumi!" comic series, based on animated versions of the Japanese pop stars. Two of them are in this comic, and they're my two favorites!
