FULL BLEED: BENIGN NEGLECT

Ready to put summer well behind me. The last several months have been asphalt on the tongue rough, and seemingly unending. When you’re in a grim situation and it seems like it’s always been that way and like it will ever be this way? That’s exhausting in a way that’s tough to describe. That said, […]






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 […]






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.






His Other Name is Silence

Different flavor of update this week. Here’s some art from Luis Guragña for STRANGEWAYS book 3, THE LAND WILL KNOW. Still pushing for this to be completed this year for a release early next year. There’s a whole host of artists, as the book is composed of a group of short stories all bound together […]






THE LAND OF PUSH AND PULL

  Your perfect soundtrack for thist post. Just loop it. I managed to trap myself yesterday, pretty bad. Not gonna bog you down with the personal details that you’re not really interested in, but last week was no damn good. This week not so much either. Let it all catch up to me, or I […]






SCRATCHED AWAY AT THE WALLS FOR YEARS

One day I’ll start feeling like I’m not in a transitional state, right? Maybe that’s the deal. Always changing. Or always moving away from another burning wreck to another as the hull finally slips below the waterline, just in time for the engine room to catch fire. Rinse repeat. Been thinking things over since the […]






FULL BLEED: LIFE IS SHORT AND FULL OF STUFF

Emerald City Comic Con, 2015 report and debriefing.






TAKE ME ON A ROLLER COASTER

Take me on an airplane ride… Last week I did a quick trawl of Duotrope, which is a thing that I do now, and still seems odd to type, but if you’re at my level of professional writing, you know what it is, I’m sure. So I do a trawl, and find that there’s an […]






More of John Coulthart’s adaptation of “Call of Cthulhu”, which not only envisions the alien vistas of Lovecraft’s R’lyeh, but the more mundane packaging and commercial products of the era, mixing the two in a way that Lovecraft himself never thought to. Looking at this work, I’m still astonished at the sheer number of hours […]






More Call of Cthulhu by John Coulthart

More of John Coulthart’s lovely and chilling Rapidograph work in his adaptation of “Call of Cthulhu”. I had the good fortune of interviewing Mr. Coulthart for Robot 6 a few years ago and I’m always happy to link to that. Give it a read.
