The Week’s Commute… In The Stacks

By the time you read this, we’ll be on the road again. With Julie now established in her new job and our work schedules actually aligned for the first time in about five years, the holiday weekend– all three glorious days of it!– is ours to enjoy as we wish. As it happens, since I have a printshop delivery that comes with a free hotel stay at the Tokeland, we are taking advantage of our three-day weekend to go to the coast.

But that tale will have to wait. This week I have something else. Continue Reading »

2015’s Annual Inventory Revisited, With Added Impulse Buys

With Julie safely at a nice new job and our finances slowly recovering, I am finally in a place where I can buy comics again. So I decided to revisit the pull list, catch up with the books that were piling up, and so on.

There’s just one problem. Continue Reading »

Saturday’s Hit Parade

This is another one you can blame on my friend Mike over at Radio Vs. The Martians. Continue Reading »

Last Sunday on Rainier

Julie was still asleep when inspiration hit me on Sunday morning. So I went into our bedroom and sat on the foot of the bed and said, “I have one word for you.”

She stirred and said “Mmmmfraw,” which after over a decade of marriage I knew meant Huh? What time is it? What word? What are you on about now? Continue Reading »

Saturday With the Destroyers

I know that at the moment the comics blogosphere is all about Iceman, but there were a couple of OTHER books that came out this week. One of them that was sent to me for review is very cool, but unlikely to be on most fans’ radar… so I thought I would call your attention to it. Continue Reading »

Cross-Hatchings for April 2015

The usual bits and pieces. Mostly just cool links and things. Continue Reading »

Our Weekend at Emerald City 2015 (part 2)

I told you a little about our trip to this year’s ECCC in last week’s column. Here’s the rest of the report, as promised. Continue Reading »

Friday’s Special Sneak Preview

We are hip-deep in the madness that is the Emerald City Comic-Con, so I wasn’t really able to do much in the way of a column this week.

HOWEVER! I can share a sneak peek at a really cool new project of mine, since my publisher finally lifted the embargo on telling folks about it. Continue Reading »

Another Afternoon Goofing Off With A Meme Thing

This is just another one of those things that arrive in my In Box once in a while. It amuses me to take these earnest market-survey questionnaires about books and reading that I get sent every so often and apply them to comics.

This one is something that showed up at school, clearly aimed at students who are reluctant readers, but I decided to answer it myself anyway, just for the hell of it. Continue Reading »

Classroom Movie Day!

As the comics internet collectively sharpens its metaphorical knives on the new DC superhero redesigns released this week, I thought I’d take the opportunity to point out a recent effort from that company that, to my surprise, actually turned out remarkably well. In fact, it was a hit with both me AND my middle-school Cartooning class. Continue Reading »

The Week of the Miracle

I wasn’t going to write about this. I really wasn’t. It seemed crass.

But then Brian wrote about it so I thought I’d at least explain what was going on. Apart from that, I’ve done a number of columns documenting when comics fans behaved badly, so I feel obligated to make sure you people hear about it when comics fans do something magnificent. Continue Reading »

Weekend at the Wake

My first indication that this was going to be a thing was when a co-worker came up to me on Friday and said, “I’m so sorry.” Continue Reading »

Cross-Hatchings for February 2015

This-n-that. Some amusing links, some interesting books, and of course comics. Continue Reading »

A Week of Author Events

Been really, REALLY busy this whole week, which is why this is going up considerably later than usual. But there were bits and pieces of sort-of-comics-related things going on throughout, with both my students and me, and I’ll tell you about those. Book signings, new publications, all kinds of things.
