Michael hired the entire creative team for this Fionna & Cake graphic novel. Collaborating with Kate Sheridan and Killian Ng remains one of his favorite projects from his time at BOOM! Studios.
The Preorder Cover program had artists do paired Marcy & Simon-focused covers attached to separate issues, encouraging collectors to pick up multiple issues. Michael hired Danielle Chuatico, Jamie Loughran, Ray Tonga, and Amelia Vidal.
Michael hired all the creators who contributed to the Amazing World of Gumball 2018 Special. This was one of the first times he had ownership of the entire editorial process, from sourcing and hiring artists to editing their scripts to art directing their shorts to completion.
Following Michael's collaboration with C.R. Chua on several series, she sent him a previously published Flipino zine along with a pitch to collect the series into a graphic novel for American audiences. Michael collaborated with Shannon Watters to acquire the project and oversaw the updates to the original text, including the transition from black-and-white to full color.
The Variant Cover program for Go Go Power Rangers #9-20 had artist Audrey Mok capture a moment from key Power Ranger episodes, with design by Dylan Todd. Michael art directed the covers from start to finish for Go Go Power Rangers #11-19, selected each episode and moment to feature, and wrote the cover dialogue and copy where applicable.
