Hello! The powers that be have announced another thing I have written, at last! Adventure Time volume 4: BITTER SWEETS. It’s the same creative team (the amazing Zack Sterling is drawing it and the incredible Stephanie Gonzaga did that ferocious cover) as SEEING RED, except this time I guess it’s in COLOUR and it’s about the two PBs: Princess Bubblegum and Peppermint Butler.

They give this synopsis:
The Bravest Warriors know how to save the universe and they know how to save it good! But what happens when it’s the universe’s time to save them? It’s going to be a crazy mission but maybe the universe is up to it, and if not, then hopefully Catbug will come up with something. Right?
But that was written before I had even written the issue and it tells you basically nothing! Here’s what I CAN tell you:
Order it! Ask fer it! Add it to your pull lists! Thanks! :)
The October solicits for kaBOOM! went up yesterday, and WOULDJA LOOK AT THIS:
BRAVEST WARRIORS #25
Retail Price: $3.99
Author: Kate Leth
Artist: Ian McGinty
Cover Artists: A: Ian McGinty B: Maris Wicks C: Chip Zdarsky (INCENTIVE)
It’s the 2nd Anniversary issue! The team comes face to face with… Bugcat?! It’s up to the Bravest Warriors to figure out who this little guy is and where he came from because though he may look like everyone’s favorite Catbug, he might be more foe than friend!
Ian and I are PSYCHED about this issue. It also features covers by two of my favourite people, Maris Wicks and Chip Zdarsky! I requested them AGGRESIVELY.
What happens when an evil (?) version of our beloved Catbug shows up at the Bravest Warriors’ home base and starts wreaking havoc? Does he need more than a bath, some yogurt, and a place to go doodie?! Is he eating… edamame???
This issue features some special guests and a bunch of surprises. Please pre-order it. We are upping the BW game.
This is a huge deal for me, and for Drew and our amazing editor Sarah Gaydos as well. This all started in talks probably at the latter end of last year, and it’s just now being announced and created. Comics are a crazy waiting game, but it’s so worth it for a project this cool.
We’ll be doing a longer and more in-depth interview soon, but I can tell you this: The words I stressed most importantly, when it came to pitching this plot, were Nancy Drew-esque Teen Girl Mystery. We’re playing in Edward’s world, in the look and feel of the movie, but we’re updating it and bringing it forward a few years in some really neat ways. It’s fun, it’s strange, it’s scary, and I like to think it has a lot of heart. The things you don’t want me to screw up about this movie? Trust me, I really don’t want to screw them up, either. I love Scissorhands. Drew loves Scissorhands. Sarah loves Scissorhands. We’re making something really special.
Please, order this from your local comic shop! Tell ‘em I sent you.

In this episode, Kate offers some words of encouragement to the creators and publishers putting forth new women-friendly superhero comics, including Ms. Marvel, Captain Marvel, and the ferociously well received news of a Batgirl revamp by Cameron Stewart, Babs Tarr and Brendan Fletcher.
This week, I talk about a thing I love, and a thing I love is the new Batgirl. You might have picked up on this.
