    With my peripheral vision I catch her hands moving, then the bra falling away. I can not tear my eyes away from her eyes.

    Yes, I can. I'm a guy.

Snikt! — Barry & Wolverine

Thursday, February 12th, 2009

It was only a matter of time before my misbegotten comic book-riddled past caught up to me, and now it has. But whereas your average comic-book-geek-turned-novelist ends up being summoned back to the world of comics for a special mini-series or a story arc on an ongoing title, I got lured in a different way: […]

Captain America…DOA?!?

Wednesday, March 7th, 2007

You’re kidding me. No way. No freakin’ way! This is bull. There is so much wrong with this that I can’t even start to explain it all. This entry written by…Me.

NEW AVENGERS #27 Five-Page Preview

Because it’s impossible to overestimate the goodness of a cool preview… Check out

Bendis & Stern & My Life Sucks

Wednesday, January 31st, 2007

Had to get up early to finish a report for history that is probably about two hundred years ahead of most of the wastoids in my class. I’m willing to bet the teacher will like it, if she understands it. Anyhow, so I missed the announcement of the first entry below. And that day just […]

Hey, Slate — Shut the hell up!

Friday, January 26th, 2007

So, did everyone see this article on Slate? It’s mainly about Heroes, which I love, but it’s a real backhanded slap at comics. Man, I think it’s a bunch of crap. “Starting in the 1980s…” Look I’m not the oldest comic fan I know, not even close really, but has this writer ever checked out […]

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 […]

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!
