Written by J.C. Vaughn, illustrated by Daniel Warner, and with a cover by Scott Morse, IDW Publishing continues to bring the stories of acclaimed science-fiction author Cory Doctorow with "When Sysadmins Ruled the Earth" that asks the question of who will keep the computers online when the end of the world comes? Winner of the Locus Award for best novelette of 2006. FC, $3.99, 32 pages, it's on Page 314 of the September 2007 PREVIEWS.

Since this is my first time adapting someone else's work, it was a very interesting experience to able to concentrate on the craft of writing the comic while staying faithful to Cory Doctorow's original short story. Additionally, it's a huge bonus for me to have a Scott Morse cover. Of his many impressive works, I liked his arc on Casefiles: Sam & Twitch best, but just about anything he's done has been worth checking out. I was on a panel with him before and he seemed as nice as he is talented.
