My Tumblr

Over the last year or so I've posted on my blog less and less. One of the main reasons for this is because of Tumblr. Personally I love it. Mostly its quick images and funny things I like. Not as much hardcore info. So if you want a more up to date blog to follow that's where you should head.

http://thejoshuawilliamson.tumblr.com/

I recommend you get your own tumblr and follow along. It's like twitter for pictures and gifs. 

Lately I've actually been debating killing this blog in place of an actual tumblr based website. It's more than likely going to happen. Just a matter of finding the time to do it.

THE IRON THRONE. SDCC. ME.

Another San Diego Comic-Con has passed. I'm exhausted, but super glad I went and meet a ton of amazing people who love comics. And it was great meeting new GHOSTED fans who loved the book.
This year there was a private Walking Dead party and Weezer played. It was insane.
I've learned that in my new life I really have nothing to complain about anymore.

GHOSTED

At ECCC my new Image series with Skybound "GHOSTED" was finally announced.
Insanely twisted Interiors by Goran Sudzuka with awesome covers by Sean Philips.

It's Ocean's 11 in a Haunted House instead of a Casino! 

Even though we are currently working on issue five, I can't show off to much art work yet.

BUT, I can leave you with an awesome two page spread and a link to an article with USA TODAY where I talk about it.

CAPTAIN MIDNIGHT ONGOING!

My new series CAPTAIN MIDNIGHT will be an ongoing at DARK HORSE starting in July!
Been having such a blast working on this book, it's been hard to not talk about it. Can't wait for it to get out there.  It's great to write some fun pulp hero goodness. Can't wait to start really showing you what we've been doing with the character.
 ALSO! Check out the wall of heroes that was a ECCC this last weekend.

BY JOSHUA WILLIAMSON & VICENTE NAVARRETE

Tony’s nervous about his first day at a new school. Instead of acting normally, he tries being the class clown, the teacher’s pet, and sadly… even the bully. He draws his other identities as Monsters in his sketchbook. But Tony’s monsters escape all over the school! Thankfully, Mandy also goes to Tony’s school and can lend a helping hand! Can Tony and Mandy catch all of the new Sketch Monsters before they demolish the school?!

KRANG!

Coming in April...

KRANG!
From the Masks and Mobsters team, yay!

TMNT VILLAIN MICROSERIES #1 (OF 4) KRANG (C: 1-0-0)
(W) Joshua Williamson (A) Mike Henderson (CA) Tyler Walpole
Krang was not always the feared warlord he is today. Once he was the spoiled prince of a falling dynasty. One disastrous mission to a penal colony planet changed all of that! Stranded by himself and surrounded by enemies, Krang faces the ultimate test for survival! See how this seemingly helpless alien grew to become a legend… and a leader!


This was one of those projects that is a bit out of my wheel house, but I had a vision for what I wanted to do and IDW dug it. Mike Henderson and I are super excited to be doing the Krang book. It's a departure from the rest of our work on Masks and Mobsters but hopefully you can see the style similarities.
