Our latest issue, 31, is at the binders as I type and will be shipping the week of July 13th.
We're really happy with this issue and a big part of that starts on the cover. I'm the first to admit that I love everything written by Brian Azzarello, but July is pretty significant. he has the last trade collection of 100 Bullets out, a short story in Uncage Me, the latest anthology from Jen Jordan (order Uncage Me now!) and his run on Batman in the Wednesday comics has just started. He also has some exciting things coming up and he talks about it right here in Crimespree with our pal Sean Chercover.
Now, as much as I love these guys, I like hanging out with them and I love seeing them around, I would really rather have them both writing all the time so I have more to read, so it was a difficult decision to ask them both to stop writing long enough to do this, but the end result is really something special.
We also have a whole lot of other Crimespree goodness in this issue for you.
