On November 23rd, viewers of CBS cutting-edge crime drama NUMB3RS are in for a dose of realism not often experienced in a network Television show. The episode, entitled " Graphic", centers around Comic Books, their creators and the conventions they inhabit.
To this end, Dan Brereton, along with several other creators and publishers were invited to be part of the shooting of the episode and contributed artwork, books, merchandise and a general air of authenticity to the comic convention set.

Postive notices from WIZARD for the new Iron Fist Annual that hit stands last week, featuring cover and interior art by Dan:
"...what really sets this issue apart is the striking art by Chaykin and Kevic Djurdjevic, and especially Dan Brereton. It’s always a treat seeing Brereton art, and his style perfectly captures the pulp feel of Orson Randall’s old-timey adventures.”
From Joe Field's own Blog, Septermber 27th, 2007:
The 19th Anniversary of the opening of FLYING COLORS Comics & Other Cool Stuff is upon us---and we're celebrating with a special event with artist Dan Brereton and the World Premier of NOCTURNALS Volume One: Black Planet & Other Stories, this Saturday September 29th from 1-4pm. I really hope you can join us.
Some talk on Dan Brereton's Message Board:
about a line of Nocturnals toys which, sadly, never saw the inside of a toy store, prompted us to go through the archives and find several picures of Nocturnals action figure prototypes from that time. It's possible these or newer figures might turn up one day, after the new Nocturnals books have re-established themselves in the comics marketplace. Until then, enjoy this peek:
I was shocked to discover today that Mike "Ringo" Wieringo
died Sunday August 12th of a massive heart attack. He was a vegatarian, fit and healthy by all accounts- its incredibly shocking.
Moreover, Mike was a friendly guy and an extremely talented artist. He was an inspiration because of his style and excellent skills. He drew circles around most of us and he did it with good-natured humility.

In a recent post to Dan's message board, Olympian Publisher Tom Negovan writes:
"THE BLACK PLANET BOOKS ARE FINISHED!"
Tom went on to say "I wanted to wait to post the news until Dan received his surprise copy in the mail this afternoon, but they look unbelievable."
Nocturnals.com received a digital photo of the cover of one of these advance copies today.
