WATCHMEN

Just got out of the midnight screening. I’m way too tired to post an actual review by way of the iPhone. And really, don’t quite know where to begin. Perhaps if I can find a public wifi setup that doesn’t suck I’ll post something this weekend. I will say that the adaptation reached for faithfulness. […]

The Thirsty – Page 42

Robot 6 @ Comic Book Resources – Covering Comic Book News and Entertainment – Strangeways: The Thirsty – Page 042 Vampires have to deal with management issues, too. You’d think being undead would get them past it, but the sad truth is that even when you’re a bloodsucker, you still have to delegate wisely. Watch […]

What I’m Reading 2/23

I didn’t get the following to Chris in time, so instead of being posted at the Robot 6 “What I’m Reading” roundtable, I post it over here where nobody’s looking for it. JOE’S BAR – Jose Muñoz and Carlos Sampayo. Sinuous and gritty urban drama. Not exactly a crime book. Not exactly a slice of […]

Your useless, unimplemented idea for the day 2/17

TARZAN by William S. Burroughs. Go!

Full Bleed #35

Full Bleed 35 It’s hard to believe my editor lets me get with half the crap I apparently get away with. The joys of working cheap, I guess. Oh, and if you weren’t sick of goose eggs at the beginning of the column, I guarantee you will be by the end.

The genesis of Strangeways

THE HORRORS OF IT ALL: The Monster from the Mound! Yep. That was the story that actually inspired me to attempt my own genre-bashing, in a proposal that was originally called BADLANDS (but then the Steven Grant mini of the same name came out and scotched that.) Oddly, I first read this in a Marvel […]

Fool’s Errand continues!

The Fool and his Money OMG OMG OMG OMG I don’t react like that to many game announcements, but this is one of them. Long ago, before color games on the mac and before we had home systems that did arcade games better than arcades could, there was Fool’s Errand, a humble little black and […]
