• From the book...


    That's one story that wouldn't go over well. Anything that starts with "I met her on the internet" is just a bad idea.

Contest Entry…

Thursday, January 25th, 2007

Fanboy, I know what you want. I have been in your shoes. Lived your life, walked through those halls, and felt your pain. Yes, a computer and an X-man Comic book would be nice. But ultimately, you want renown. You tasted it with the Tortoise Blight, and you want more. You want people to come […]

On the Texas Tour… Houston (Day 1)

Wednesday, January 24th, 2007

(Photo courtesy the Houston Chronicle/Jessica Kourkounis) On Sunday, January 21, Barry spoke and signed books at the Contemporary Art Museum in Houston, Texas. The event was a blast — a standing room only crowd, some of whom were teens dressed in costumes to celebrate an exhibit of comic book art from local budding artists. (Barry’s […]

Bendis Wrap-up!

Wednesday, January 24th, 2007

Some of the latest and coolest Bendis news for y’all… Marvel’s editor-in-chief Joe Quesada mentions Bendis in his regular Friday column for Newsarama, which actually only appeared on Monday. (Even Marvel’s COLUMNS are late — har, har.) Comic Book Bin reviews New Avengers: Illuminati #1 An interview with Bendis collaborator Brian Reed (somehow I missed […]

I believe that the third thing is to be able to have a better family relationship. His family is so messed up and it seems like it could be the only thing he would really want. In the beggening of the book, he states clearly all the messed up details about his life at home […]

New Avengers Newsarama Finale

Saturday, January 20th, 2007

Bendis had a two-day wrap-up on Newsarama for his new New Avengers coverage. First, he dealt with Spidey and I thought he had some really good insights. I don’t know why it is that he’s right, but just give it a read and you’ll see that he totally gets it: He said, “There is nothing […]

Bendis in the NY Times…Uncovered!

Thursday, January 18th, 2007

A few years back, Bendis did a pretty funny strip for the New York Times (of all places!) about what it’s like to be, well, Bendis! I’ve only ever been able to find low-res versions of it… until now! Click on the thumbnail to see the cartoon in hi-res glory! I especially like the bit […]

More New “New Avengers” with Bendis

Thursday, January 18th, 2007

Newsarama put two more of the new New Avengers characters out there at the same time… and with good reason. These guys go together like salt and pepper, the Lone Ranger and Tonto, or pants (you never really get one pant, do you?): Powerman & Iron Fist. Way cool!
