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.
