EDGED – Full Bleed goes to the William Gibson show

EDGED The last time I tried to attend a William Gibson signing was the day that my father-in-law decided to start punching out. I was about twenty miles from home when I got the call and turned around. Anyone who saw it as a surprise wanted to see it as a surprise. He was dead […]

A Taste of Asphalt

A TASTE OF ASPHALT hits today. Snag it here. Okay, you want to know what my writing’s about. But you don’t want to spend a lot because everyone’s got projects to support and Kickstarters to back. So I’m going to make it easy. Here’s what ninety-nine cents gets you. Two short stories: “Crunch Time”, featuring […]


Okay, here’s the ground rules. 1) Spoilers for STAR TREK: INTO DARKNESS. Stop reading if this is an issue. 2) I didn’t like it and am not likely to change my mind if you get in my face about it. Right. Either you’re still reading or you’re not.   So, INTO DARKNESS. Not a very […]

Pet Peeves in Fantasy

So it looks like my next project may actually be a fantasy novel. I have mixed feelings about this. Some of the earliest books I loved were fantasy (Looking at you AMBER series, the first one anyways) but I’m on and off with the genre as a whole. Though I dearly love the CONAN stories […]

More than One Tribe

FULL BLEED TELL THE WORLD THAT YOU’RE WINNING, LOVE AND LIFE, LOVE AND LIFE This year I’ve gone to as many science-fiction conventions as I have comic conventions. Normally I’d have hit twice as many comic shows as I have (passed on both ECCC and SDCC this year, something I hope is just this year […]

FULL BLEED breaks a promise

Hey, I got rooked too. I thought that this new DC thing was actually something. Full reboot. Death to continuity. Start it all over without a debt record. Go all Tyler Durden on that backstory.

Well, as it turns out, not so much.

On the big news

FULL BLEED SUPERTHEORY OF SUPEREVERYTHING DC went and did it. Day and date digital. Okay, they did some other stuff and I’ll get to that eventually. But the big one, and don’t kid yourself is going day and date with their print and digital comics. For those of you unclear on the term, this means […]

Stumptown Recollected

Being a handy unionization of all Stumptown 2011 threads, since I evidently had something to say on it this year. Quick news Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Pinhead by Benjamin Marra, as sketched at Stumptown 2011 There. That about covers it. Likely the last major convention report I write this year. I know, you’re […]

The four dollar barrier

Funny that people are talking about this being the month of four dollar comics, since the first comic I paid four dollars for was back in 2002? Can’t recall. Pretty sure it was an issue of THIRTY DAYS OF NIGHT. I can’t find it in my longboxes to verify, but I recall being put off […]

The shape of the world

I’m partial to trapezoidal myself. Gary Reed muses about the current comics marketplace.  Well worth a look. I’m not going to put on my alarmist hat.  Mr. Reed doesn’t either, though he does mull over some questions out loud that some people probably only ask of themselves silently. For instance.  The return of Steve Rogers […]
