Happy Wold Newton Day!

Today, as I write this, it’s the 13th of December. The anniversary of the day a meteorite fell to Earth near the village of Wold Newton in Yorkshire, England, back in 1795.

I know this because, believe it or not, that event would eventually result in the greatest ongoing crossover story ever; and incidentally have a remarkable effect on my own life as well. Continue Reading »

My Week In Geek

I don’t know why this ramps up the way it does every year around this time, but it always does. People ask me things. I mean, non-fan sorts of people. Continue Reading »

A Weekend Revisiting the Daily Planet

One of the things I tell my students fairly often, both in the writing and drawing classes I teach, is this– you need to look at real things. Continue Reading »

Sucksgiving Day Soundtrack

Premiere Week– Bullet Points Edition

Hardly read any comics at all this week, but watched a lot of TV. And my God, but there was a lot of comics-inspired nerdy TV out there to check out. I’m too lazy to write lengthy reviews of each show we watched, and we didn’t see everything anyway, but I’ll give you short reactions to those we did see. How’s that? Continue Reading »

Living in the Time of the Revolution

This one’s kind of all over the place, but it comes together eventually, I promise. Continue Reading »

Flashback Friday

One thing leads to the next, I guess. Continue Reading »

Three Days in the Hospital… on the Final Frontier

I jinxed us, clearly, when I grumped about August last week. Because September gave us quite a kick in the slats right out of the gate as well. Continue Reading »
