Avengers Assemble: Secret Wars Written by Gavin Hignight

How excited am I?! My coworkers this month are the Avengers! And not the Avengers you know… Intrigued? Tune in to a one-hour premiere on Saturday, June 17 (11:30 a.m. EDT) on Disney XD
(I wrote part 2 of the premiere) !!!

“Avengers No More – Part 1” (11:30 a.m. EST), the Avengers will battle the Leader and his newly formed Cabal. This will be followed up by “Avengers No More – Part 2” (12:00 p.m. EST), in which Black Panther will assemble a new team of Avengers to stop the Leader and free the original members of the team.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has been an absolute highlight of my creative career. Having the opportunity to work in this universe, with this creative team and with my four favorite mutants has been a dream. And my most current episode HEART OF EVIL is a highlight of this career highlight. Growing up, like many, a huge fan of Star Wars, with Luke Skywalker being my first impression of what a hero is… and then all those years later being a fan of Batman The Animated Series and knowing The Joker is absolutely what the perfect villain is… to say I am a huge fan of Mark Hamill would still be an understatement. And to say I am excited to have him as the voice of Kavaxas in my most recent episode would also be a massiver-bigger-larger understatement than that! I am ecstatic! MARK HAMILL! As Kavaxas!!! This entire arc of the TMNT series is incredible. The creative team, the animation team, putting out their most inspired beautiful work. Hope you enjoy.

If you didn’t get to see it on the air, you can buy the entire Kavaxas arc on the Tales of TMNT Super Shredder DVD which is linked HERE!

Tokka Vs The World written by Gavin Hignight

So excited for everyone to see the latest episode of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles that I had the great pleasure of writing. Why was this one so great for me? Because it has a massive Kaiju battle! The turtles vs a giant space turtle Kaiju by the name of… Tokka. ’nuff said!

Airing on Nickelodeon, Sunday February 5th at 9AM. Should be streaming through their service after. Booyakasha!!

Looking back, looking forward. Dec 2016

To those of you good enough to follow my endeavors and this very blog thank you. I apologize for the long gap in posts… this is due to various circumstances, mostly good, some bad. I have been insanely busing writing these last few months. On projects I can’t wait to brag about and for you to see in the year ahead. I also migrated everything to a much more reliable webhost company and lost some momentum (and files) during my migration. Getting everything back to normal now.

And speaking of “normal”, things are anything but aren’t they? I join many of you worried about the state of our nation as I look ahead to 2017. Be good to each other. Stand up for those who are under unjust attack. I will be there with you, on the right side of history. Look forward, not back.

I had some great moments in the last year. And although many of us have felt like the last few months are a continuous kick in the stomach I am thankful for some of the personal and creative victories I’ve had this year.

Thank you for keeping up with what I do. It wouldn’t be as fun creating if it was only for myself.

Last Light Fading

Last light fading
People stand in long metal tubes
The city of levels. Hidden spaces.
Up. Down. Under and above
Hong Kong night.
The lights.
The Desperation
Fatigue on their faces
A look I’ve seen before
New York. Tokyo. Hong Kong.
Concrete Crypts.
We’re already living in them.
Coffin town, a real place.
I’ve seen it. Boxes drug out to the streets.
Locals won’t walk near.
So this part of town can belong to us.
Bad luck won’t even come here.
Up and down, the night a Merry-Go-Round
Night in Hong Kong.
Last light fading.
We’re on our way tomorrow… or tonight.
Something new is always on the way.
New, next to old.
As last light is fading.

Hey, True Believers! (I can’t believe I finally got to say that…)

Tune in April 10th to DisneyXD to watch the Ultimate Spider-Man episode “Force of Nature” written by this webhead!

So excited to have the opportunity to write for Spider-Man. And as luck should have it I got to write Iron Spider, Scarlet Spider and Miles Morales (my current favorite Spidey!!) Not to mention Peter Parker himself. I also get to introduce a new villain… A hint… H20 is involved.
