Stupid Wizard (Or, The Mystery DC Project Revealed)

I'll keep this short, because I ended up posting like a crazy MF on the previous DF thread, when I was supposed to only be taking a half hour break from the board.

So, as Matt pointed out, the latest issue of Wizard Magazine ran a piece on the DC project that I've been working on (the one I've been asked to keep quiet about, fat lot of good that did.) So, yeah, I'm writing a Metal Men limited series for DC and Mike Allred is pencilling it. It's six issues, and it involves the Metal Men, and that's pretty much all I'm gonna say about it right now other than I've finished two scripts, it's not on schedule as far as I know, and it should be a lot of fun.

This isn't a really big deal, but I'm already pissed at Wizard for ignoring World's Funnest, and using my name in an ad for Wizard Edge in Previews, which said they were running an interview with me in the magazine when I was never approached about. And of course the magazine didn't even mention me or anything I was working on (The similarly advertised Jhonen Vasquez interview also never appeared). Anyway, I was being a good soldier and keeping my yap shut about the Metal Men, and I personally like keeping things quiet until they're ready to be announced, so I wish they kept their big "coup" to themselves. Whatever. At least now I don't have to keep it a secret. We're doing a Metal Men series, huzzah.

Anyway, I better get back to work.. I crashed yesterday and ended up sleeping something like 14 hours in a twenty hour period, and didn't get up until 5 this afternoon. I'm way behind and everything's nuts.
