HIGHWAY 62 REVISITED is my second collection of non-fiction writing on comics and popular culture. It’s a little broader-ranging than THE COLLECTED FULL BLEED, as with those I was focused primarily on comics and the business of comics. This volume covers comics, but it also adds a lot of talk about horror and what makes it work, as well as in-depth interviews with musicians and my expansive convention travelogues for shows like Wonder-Con and the San Diego Comic Con, giving an idiosyncratic examination of the time that these shows went from comics-only to giant media extravaganzas that sell out in two minutes and host crowds previously unimaginable.
Yeah, that’s the cover.
You can read a bit of it over here, and if you’ve followed this blog for any length of time, you probably know what you’re in for.
Oh, and I got my friend Ken Lowery to write the introduction for it. How, I’ll never know. But he did a good job. Pegged me good, just not in the way that you’d expect.
