Like the man says, it's time. Over the last while I've been working on my next book project for First Second called Marathon. The book, written by Boaz Yakin tells the story of the first Persian invasion of Greece at Marathon in 490BC. It's a sweeping action epic focusing on Eucles, the messenger whose run from Athens to Sparta to Marathon and back to Athens again is instrumental in the shaping of Western civilization. Pictured above is General Miltiades, the Athenian military genius famous for this historic tactical victory over the Persian invading force.

The book is scheduled for release the summer 2012.
