As hinted at a few posts back, I am now writing the comic book version of "The Secret Saturdays" which appears in "Cartoon Network Action Pack" published by DC Comics every other month (alternating with "Ben 10 Alien Force"). I've never enjoyed working on a project that I didn't create as much as I'm enjoying writing "The Secret Saturdays." In fact it feels incredibly close to something I would have made up, which is what makes it so much fun to work on. I can't thank Jay and "The Secret Saturdays" producer/writer, Brandon Sawyer enough for inviting me to play in their sandbox.
Created by Jay Stephens, "The Secret Saturdays" follows Doc, Drew and Zak Saturday, a family of Cryptozoologists, and their cryptid companions Fiskerton, Komodo, and Zon as they embark on al sorts of cool adventures investigating mysterious creatures, and battling awesome villains. If you merged Jonny Quest with the Herculoids and sprinkled in some Tintin, Zacherley, Indiana Jones, "In Search of..." and even a touch of Speed Racer you'd get a sense of how cool "The Secret Saturdays" is.
The show will debut on Cartoon Network this Fall. The comic book adventures have already begun. Jay Stephens and Brandon Sawyer wrote the first two. The first issue that I wrote, "Cartoon Network Action Pack" #30, will appear on October 8th.
