The never-before-told prequel to Ender’s Game continues! An unidentified ship is rocketing toward Earth with tech far beyond anything we’ve ever seen…and the only people who can give warning are a small band of asteroid miners millions of miles from home. The clock is ticking, and it doesn’t look good for the human race. From New York Times bestselling author Orson Scott Card comes the tale of humanity’s first contact with the Formics…and the horrible toll it took on mankind.

The Story: The award-winning novel comes to life as the saga of Ender Wiggin continues! Ender is called to a distant planet to speak the death of a scientist brutally murdered by a mysterious alien species. But instead of uncovering the truth, Ender finds a web of lies and deceit that threatens to endanger the entire planet. Based on the novel by bestselling author Orson Scott Card.
I’ll be doing a signing at Chapel Hill Comics on February 16th from 5 PM to 7 PM with Orson Scott Card. If you’re in the area, come stop by and say hello. It’s the official release party for Formic Wars: Burning Earth #1. Should be fun. Mr. Card will also be signing some of his other works.
Incidentally, if you haven’t read Pathfinder, go buy it now. It’s awesome.

Speaker for the Dead is one of my all-time favorite books, so to have the chance to work on the comic adaptation for Marvel is like a dream. Speaker is one of those books that you read and think, “Dang! How did he ever think up THAT idea?” An amazing and expected sequel to Ender’s Game. It won the Huge and Nebula Award the year it was was released, making Scott Card the first person to ever win both the Hugo and Nebula twice in a row (He won both awards the previous year for ENDER’S GAME.).
In any event, I’m working with Jordan D. White, a genius and saint of an editor at Marvel. Incredibly smart and talented guy. The art is being drawn by Pop Mahn, who I was privileged to work with on ENDER IN EXILE. Amazing artist. Oozing with talent. The creative director on this has been Orson Scott Card himself, and it’s always a joy to work with him. He is after all my favorite author. It’s a five-issue series. Check it.
The conclusion to the limited series. I know, it brings a tear to my eye, too. But seriously, this has been a thrill to work on. So many talented people have had their hands on this, including Rob Simpson, our editor at EA Comics, quite possibly the nicest guy you’ll ever meet. This one’s for you, Rob.
Thanks to all who’ve been following the series. It’s been a joy. Now hurry to a comic book store. This one’s got zing!
