SIX-FINGERED HAND

I was gonna go with “Six Act Play” but the other one sounds so much cooler (and is a nice callout to one of my favorite DEFENDERS runs from when I was a kid.) So let’s talk a little about structure. It’s a thing that I’ve been thinking about, trying to figure out how to […]






I NEVER HELD IT AT THE RIGHT ANGLE

Genre is a trap you shouldn’t fall into too hard if you can avoid it.






Photos from Seattle/Emerald City Comic Convention, 2015

Quick update to let you know that I’ve posted the best of the photos from my recent(ish) trip to Seattle to attend the Emerald City Comic Convention a couple months back. View the set here.






THE NEW BLACK

Photo from this photoset, taken by me just last week. THE NEW BLACK Time for a change. And this is an easy one to make. Let’s us be honest for a moment. Blogs aren’t something done to build an audience with these days. They’re value-added. So when folks can’t get enough of someone’s work, well, […]






SAN ANGELO BOULEVARD

So last week was the whole preview for THE LAND WILL KNOW, right? Yeah, I know. I should keep better track of what goes on at my own weblog, but the fact is that I have Twitter, several Tumblr blogs, a minor Facebook page as well as what goes on here at highway-62.com. I should […]

Been thinking things over since the […]






FULL BLEED: LIFE IS SHORT AND FULL OF STUFF

Emerald City Comic Con, 2015 report and debriefing.






FULL BLEED: LIVING LIKE SKELETONS

So I’ve been wracking my brain, trying to figure out why things are the way they are. Not everything, mind you. I don’t have the time to compose a supertheory of super-everything. But when I spend time in a place or situation, my brain gets to considering how it got there, the way it is […]






From another side

So there was this time that DC Comics put out a wondrous single issue of THE DOOM PATROL, which was written by Grant Morrison at the time. And it featured art by Richard Case (the usual artist on the book for the bulk of Morrison’s run), Jamie Hewlett (who went on to design The Gorillaz […]
