Polaris is still making the rounds, so we'll see what happens on that front.
"Wofld on Fire" is not do-able anymore because the events of the world caught
up with the story. (Essentially, it was about the events leading up and
following America getting into its next war, starting with an attack on New
York. Very eerily, nearly everything that was in the script and the planned
series has now happened, so the show is now a moot issue.)

I've put my play "Among the Ruins" on a back burner for now, because it got too
clever for its own good, too slick, almost self-consciously needs time
to season and develop the right kind of maturity.

Comics: the first issue of Supreme Power comes out August 6th, and it's going
to be a terrific book. And Spidey continues apace, I'm just about to start
writing issue 500, a 38 page monster that culminates a three-issue arc that
encompasses much of Spidey's history and some things that should be real
surprises for people.

TV: I'm making the network rounds with the people at Marvel Productions,
pitching a new series, but that's all I can say about it for the moment.

Audio: I've finished the 20 short scripts for "The Adventures of Apocalypse Al"
for a company that will be distributing them either late fall or early Spring
2004. It's a very, very funny series.

Other than that, working on a novel, making the pitch rounds for Midnight
Nation as a feature, and taking some down time after finishing season two of
Jeremiah last month.
