Blood Bowl Coming

On a lighter note—and on the day after a crackerjack Super Bowl (I didn’t have a dog in that fight, but what a great 4th quarter)—ICv2.com reports details about the Blood Bowl comic I’m writing for Boom! Studios. As reported:

The Blood Bowl series, scripted by bestselling fantasy author Matt Forbeck, will be based on the Games Workshop fantasy football parody game. Blood Bowl: Killer Contract, like most other Boom! GW titles, will be a five-issue miniseries, which will then be collected into a 128-page trade paperback.

As for the “bestselling,” I don’t know for sure where they got that, but I like it. As far as I know, the only such list my novels have made was when my first Blood Bowl novel cracked Locus’s bestselling tie-ins list, so I suppose that’s it. Either way, I’ll take it.

Now, back to writing the next issue!

  1. I can’t say too much about the series yet, although I think it’s say to report that many races will be represented on the teams that appear throughout the books.

  3. Did you hear that they are making a new video game about blood bowl. It’s being developed by a team named Cyanide. While it will probably be only a xbox live arcade, what do you think about that? and congrats! love your books

  5. Thanks, Travis! Actually, I’ve been following Cyanide for years. The good news about the game is that it’s currently slated for the PC, the Xbox 360, the Nintendo DS, and the PSP. The better news is that it should be out by the end of 2008.
