ICYMI: MASTERPIECE! CONS! FORTUNE & GLORY! MORE!
A JINXWORLD NEWSLETTER
It has been a BUSY couple weeks over here at JINXWORLD, and we wanted to collect all the most exciting developments in one convenient post for you all. Starting with…
Coming this DECEMBER from our friends at DARK HORSE COMICS, MASTERPIECE reunites Bendis and artist ALEX MALEEV, along with IAN HERRING and JOSHUA REED, for an all-new crime saga!
Emma, aka “Masterpiece,” is a brilliant and driven 16-year-old. She has paid for school with her next level inventions and is well-known for her funny and honest webcomics. Then, one day, Zero Preston, one of the most famous billionaires on the planet, confronts her with the truth about her world. Emma discovers she is the only daughter of two of the greatest, most charismatic master criminals of all time. Her parents were the authors of the greatest casino robbery of all time, the greatest museum heist of all time,AND they took Preston for a cool billion... before they disappeared never to be seen or heard from again.
Zero Preston has been looking for payback for years since then and now he finds Emma... who clearly does not have his money. Instead, Zero threatens Masterpiece into pulling a grand, impossible job against his corporate enemy and, in order to pull off one of the greatest heists of all time, Masterpiece fashions a crew of her peers and her parents’ old associates.

Brian had the absolute pleasure of meeting so many great fans at both BALTIMORE and ROSE CITY COMIC-CON over the past couple weeks.
Every single interaction was just above and beyond. I love you all. Thank you so much for coming out.
And while Brian was at these conventions, he has appeared on NUMEROUS panels, which leads us to our next subject…
Convention appearances (and the start of semester at PSU) make it somewhat difficult for us to host our virtual MASTERCLASS in the typical fashion. However, Brian has made sure to record each of the panels he has been a part of at these past two conventions, which we plan to share with all of you POWERS and PHENOMENA LEVEL subscribers, in place of our Zoom sessions for the next few weeks.
We released the first of which this past Sunday — a 45-minute Q&A just like the ones we would indulge in during a Masterclass. Check it out here:
And we have something extra special planned for next week…
So, the next class is actually going to be a team-up podcast between this newsletter and Ashcan Press, Matt Rosenberg‘s Substack domain. Griffin and Ethan run both of our Substacks and put us together, and we had an awesome conversation. I loved it so much. That class is coming soon.
The Rosenberg crossover and other special pre-recorded MASTERCLASSES are going to be flying into your inboxes fast and furious, and we hope you enjoy them.
We released our TENTH installment of FORTUNE AND GLORY: THE MUSICAL last week!
For those just joining us, this project is the long-awaited sequel to Brian’s original 1999 bio-graphic novel about working around Hollywood. This time, we follow Bendis during his very brief run as the writer of the Spider-Man Broadway musical. Yes… that Spider-Man Broadway musical.
In this latest chapter, Bendis gets to the bottom of what exactly “Turn Off the Dark” even means!… MAYBE. Find it here:
We recently got an all-new edition of Brian’s ongoing series of guest appearances on WORD BALLON with JOHN SIUNTRES: THE BENDIS TAPES.
The 2.5 hour long conversation can be found in full on YouTube or in parts on your favorite podcast apps. Check all those out below.
So we did all that and, believe it or not, we have even more coming your way very soon. Up first: MORE MASTERCLASS!
