Cole at San Diego Comic-Con

I'll be back at Comic-Con International in San Diego this year! The easiest place to find me is at the DK Publishing Booth inside the Lucasfilm Pavilion, where I'll be signing promotional items for my upcoming book, Star Wars Absolutely Everything You Need to Know.  Stop by their booths all weekend to meet other authors, including my Absolutely Everything co-authors Adam Bray and Michael Kogge.

Don't forget: You can preorder the book today via the online retailers found here: http://www.dk.com/us/features/all/star-wars-absolutely-everything-you-need-to-know/

You can also find me roaming the San Diego Convention Center, often attending the Marvel comic book panels.

Announcing My First Book: Star Wars Absolutely Everything You Need to Know

I'm excited to finally announce a project that I worked on for many months: my first official Star Wars book! The title is a big one: Star Wars Absolutely Everything You Need to Know. The book is a visual guide to the Star Wars universe done in an engaging, infographic style.  At 200 pages, its a big book and I am honored to join fellow authors Adam Bray, Kerrie Dougherty, and Michael Kogge in writing it.  

The book comes out on Force Friday, September 4, 2015.  You can preorder it right now via these links. Here is an example of one of the spreads I wrote:

Me, running? My adventures with runDisney!

This January, I had the chance to be part of the first runDisney Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend. It's a series of Star Wars themed races through the Disneyland Resort in California, including the 5K and 10K that I ran.

I am not a runner or athlete by any stretch of the imagination, but this was the perfect excuse to stop typing and start running.

You can read my entire series of articles, including my training and recaps, over on StarWars.com: http://www.starwars.com/news/tag/rundisney-star-wars

Honoring Veterans on Marvel.com

Throughout the week around Veterans day, Marvel.com features a series of articles celebrating the many talented creators who also served their country. From the World War II era to modern day, these creators bring their service experience to the pages of comic books.

A highlight of the project was interviewing Neil Kirby, son of legendary comic creator Jack Kirby. Neil shed light on so many of his father's war stories, and I can't thank him enough for taking the time to share with me and the Marvel.com readers.

You can find the series of articles right here: http://marvel.com/search/?q=veterans%20day&category=news
