• From the book...

    I can't afford to let myself feel good, to let my guard down, to think for a single moment that I belong.

    Because I don't.

9/11 Comic Book is Coming

Thursday, April 20th, 2006

I saw this story online recently. I’m curious to see how this book looks when it comes out — comics get such a bad rap sometimes, and it’ll be interesting to see what the reaction is. How much do you want to be some group of idiots out there will bitch and complain about how […]


Wednesday, April 19th, 2006

Hey, this is pretty cool news. On an April 17 posting to the Publishers Weekly website, the magazine listed The Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy and Goth Girl as one of its “Hot Galleys for Kids.” Now, yes, at first we thought that this somehow referred to a steamy, sweaty kitchen on a boat somewhere, with […]

What’s New with the Book?

Tuesday, April 18th, 2006

The Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy and Goth Girl author Barry Lyga will attend Book Expo America May 18-19. Barry will sign ARCs (Advance Reading Copies) on Friday, May 19 from 2:00-3:00 in the Traditional Autographing Area! Be sure to stop by and talk to Barry. He might get bored otherwise and you wouldn’t want THAT, […]

Pittsburgh Comicon This Weekend!

Tuesday, April 18th, 2006

Pittsburgh Comicon is this weekend and oh yeah — I’m ready. Brian Michael Bendis (u know’m — Ultimate Spider-Man, New Avengers and 1nce upon a time Daredevil) is one of the big guests (maybe THE biggest guest these days) and I’m taking a handful of books 2 actually get signed. Especially since my buddy Donnie […]

Comics Stuff

Tuesday, April 11th, 2006

ITEM! While I was looking up some movie reviews on V For Vendetta, I came across an interesting article about Alan Moore on The Slate, from back in 2003. It’s at http://www.slate.com/id/2092739/. There’s a cool fan site for Moore at http://www.alanmoorefansite.com/. ITEM! Longtime X-Men writer Chris Claremont has been forced to take some time off. […]

Barry Bonds

Tuesday, April 11th, 2006

Barry Bonds is out of control. I always looked up to him because he’s his own person — he’s never played the stupid games that sports press wants athletes to play, so they’ve always had it in for him. And in many of the accusastions against him, that’s all I could hear… It was The […]

“Event” Mania

Tuesday, April 11th, 2006

Okay, so I loved House of M, and I’m enjoying Infinite Crisis even if I don’t entirely get it, but I think I’ve just about had it with the huge, company-wide crossover events that Marvel and DC have been doing in recent months. Sure, it’s all fun to hear the old guys at my local […]

Bendis! Speaks

Sunday, April 9th, 2006

I hope everyone has seen this interview on Newsarama. Lots of cool stuff and behind-the-scenes information about Illuminati. Some of the questions are sort of dopey, but what do you expect? What I like most is that Bendis shows some excerpts from his script to the issue — always cool to see stuff like that. […]

On the Road to Civil War

Thursday, April 6th, 2006

OK, I also had the chance to look at Marvel’s “Opening Shot” sketchbook, which previews art and stuff for the big Civil War story. Unlike Infinite Crisis, this looks like it actually might matter, which would be a nice change. There’s also a cool checklist on the inside back cover so that you can be […]

Infinite Crisis: What’s the Point?

Thursday, April 6th, 2006

So, I read Infinite Crisis #6 today at lunch. Can anyone tell me what the point of this series is? I didn’t read the original Crisis until my dad bought the trade paperback a couple of years ago. He let me read when I was visiting him. I thought it was OK. A little confusing, […]
