Cross-Hatchings for July 2016

A little of this and a little of that. Sherlockian manga, cool stuff in the mail, and a worthy cause to which you should consider contributing. Continue Reading »

Cross-Hatchings for March 2016

You know, a little of this, a little of that. Mostly interesting links and event announcements. People sent some cool books and I came across some intriguing older ones. Oh, and Aquaman is BACK. Continue Reading »

Cross-Hatchings for January 2016

Just stuff. A little of this and a little of that. Nothing this week rated a full column on its own but I did get a couple of review items, and found some interesting old stuff as well. Indie superhero comics from Australia, The X-Files, Hard Case Crime… and me and my students did a fun author signing. All awaits you below the fold. Continue Reading »

Cross-Hatchings for the Holidays

A little of this, a little of that; bits and pieces that didn’t rate a full column in and of themselves. Some cool new books, I’m on the internet radio thing again, upcoming author signings, an oddball bit of comics-related live theater, and even some actual comics. Continue Reading »

Cross-Hatchings for November 2015

We’re still shaking off the class trip to the Olympia Zine Festival (and the hellacious case of con crud that came with it, despite refusing to shake hands with anyone AND practically bathing in Purell) as well as dealing with a bunch of other deadlines around here, so this week it’s just some bits and pieces of things. Vintage Bats, some other cool books, and a little shameless self-promotion. Continue Reading »

Cross-Hatchings for August 2015

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

Cross-Hatchings – Year In Review Edition

It’s that magical time of year when, all across the internet, every columnist and blogger and editor of every stripe starts thinking about the “year-in-review” piece. A look back at 2014. The best and worst of the year. And so on. I usually try to do my bit to take part in this tradition because… well, because it’s tradition.

But this year I ran into a snag. More like a brick wall, really. Continue Reading »

Cross-Hatchings for October 2014

Bits and pieces. This-n-that. Wonder Woman, the Shadow, and two-fisted time travel. Continue Reading »

Cross-Hatchings for July 2014

By the time you see this, Julie and I will be away on our first road trip of 2014; we are off to the north for a long weekend of bookscouting and goofing off. So in the meantime, here are various items that struck me as interesting enough to give a little space here, but not worth a column on their own. Continue Reading »

Cross-Hatchings for May 2014

This and that. A few short items that I thought were worth mentioning, but not to the point where any one of them rates its own column. A little bit of bookbindery, some thoughts on TV and movies, some cool books that arrived in the mail… and oh, yeah, comics. Continue Reading »

Cross-Hatchings for March 2014

A little of this and a little of that… stuff that didn’t rate a full column but that I didn’t want to ignore. Continue Reading »

December Cross-Hatchings… In the Stacks

We have this annual holiday ritual in our household. Continue Reading »

Halloween Cross-Hatchings

A little of this, a little of that… comics and TV and books, all with a spooky angle, none of which was big enough to warrant its own piece. Continue Reading »
