Cross-Hatchings Archives - Comics Should Be Good! @ Comic Book Resources
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 »
Bits and pieces. This-n-that. Wonder Woman, the Shadow, and two-fisted time travel. Continue Reading »
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 »
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 »

This and that. Comics, pulps, television, all sorts of things. You know the drill by now. Continue Reading »
Just stuff. Cool books people sent me, footnotes to some previous columns of the past few weeks, this-n-that. Continue Reading »
Short takes on comics, TV, other stuff.

No, not frequently-asked questions HERE, frequently-asked questions in my real life. Each time one comes up, I think, Hey, there’s a column, and then I sit down to do it and it’s really more of a column-ette. So here they all are together.
This is going to be a short one today, because this is a house of illness; despite downing gallons of Vitamin Water, orange juice, and Airborne, Julie and I have succumbed to the Virulent Creeping Whatever that is making the rounds.
