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 [...]
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 [...]
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.
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.

Being a handy unionization of all Stumptown 2011 threads, since I evidently had something to say on it this year.

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 [...]
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 [...]
Same as it ever was, same as it ever was, same as it ever was, here comes the twister, here comes the twister.
Because it’s both sad and funny and should be read. Which means it won’t be. But not for lack of trying. That whole browsing thing? Yeah, it’s important if you’re going to foster any kind of diversified readership. Of course, people have to come through the doors primed to look for something different too, right? [...]
Format fan entitlement is srs bsnss.
