The Long Wait Is Over!!!

No, no, not THAT long wait, sorry...

The somewhat shorter long wait was the one I meant.

The sixth and final issue of THE HARD CALL, our Wild Cards miniseries, is now on sale at your favoirte local comic book shop. Go out and snatch up your copy! Better yet, snatch up ten!!!



Scripted by Daniel Abraham (author of THE LONG PRICE QUARTET and the forthcoming fantasy epic THE DAGGER AND THE COIN, and creator of Jonathan Hive), with art by Eric Battle, THE HARD CALL is an original tale of the Wild Cards universe, not an adaptation of a story from the books. The first five issues of the comic were published by DBPro, but with number six, Dynamite steps in to wrap up the tale.

And for that other long wait... I'm working on it, I'm working on it.

Ser Ilyn Payne

I've been looking over tapes of half a dozen actors auditioning for the part of Ser Ilyn Payne in the HBO series. The strangest auditions I've ever watched, since all the actors do is stand there and react silently to the lines being read at 'em.

No decision on Ser Ilyn yet, BTW. But soon, I think.

Meanwhile, though, the talented folks over at Dark Sword Miniatures are about to issue their own version of Ser Ilyn, sculpted by Jeff Grace. Here's a couple of peeks at the green:




More details on Ser Ilyn and several more new Dark Sword releases can be found on their website at http://darkswordminiatures.com/

And... back on the TV series... look for a whole bunch of new casting announcements soon.
