The latest issue of The Lost Fleet – Corsair (#3), which I’m editing for Titan Comics is out today, a series based on the best-selling Lost Fleet military SF series by John Hemry (writing as Jack Campbell). It’s been a privilege to work on this series with the creative team and the hard-working editorial staff at the London-based publisher. I hope you’re enjoying it as much as I am.
