Latest Updates

Yes, I have heard the news about Black Lightning.  You don't have to e-mail me, private message me, phone me, or post links on my Facebook page.  My only public comments to date have been "Words fail me" and, to my friend Dan Mishkin, "Forget it, Dan.  It's DC Town." 

But, really, if you've ever read anything I've written about Black Lightning and DC's continued refusal to honor its agreements with me, and if you have half a brain, you already know how I feel about the news.

I haven't decided yet if I'm going to release any further statements.  If I decide to do so, I'll most likely post them in a future bloggy thing.

In other news...

My son Eddie placed Craig's List notices for my first open-to-the-general-public garage sale of the summer.  If you can't make it to Comic-Con this year, come to Tony Isabella's Garage Con, July 13-14, 10 am to 6 pm, at 840 Damon Drive in Medina, Ohio.  More details to follow.

I'll be largely unavailable this weekend.  Sainted Wife Barb and I will be helping Eddie move to his new digs and his new job.  He'll be living in Marietta, Ohio and working in Parkersburg, West Virginia. 

More to come.



  1. Aw, gee, Tony, don't get upset. Clearly, this has nothing to do with your creation. Look at the announcement on the DC website; the character's name is "Black Lightening."
    No doubt it will soon be revealed that his partner is going to be named "White Darkening."

  2. Maybe it's all preamble to the Vertigo adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey.

  3. I'm not sure I ever told you — and yeah, I know you're offline for the weekend now — that you're writing Black Lightning in my version of the New 52. Here's the post. Thunder and Lightning is at the end, so you gots ta scroll down a skitch.
