Signs

We are going to have a phenomenal year. There's a current running through the industry, an excitement emerging from the landscape of 2005, which only grows with every announcement. The level of the...

Gestation

Sorry about that unannounced skip week guys; got a little buried in deadlines. Before elaborating a bit, I want to thank each and every one of you that took the time to write in, or post commentary on...

Mathematics

This is where it gets interesting. Waiting for notes back on the second FF Tales script, and really making an effort to stop and appreciate having two books shipping from Marvel in February, along with...

Strange Days

Sorry folks, but took the weekend off to finish my second FF Tales script. Back next week, and hard as it is to believe, I found the following in the listing of products shipping from Marvel, in the...

Art Of The Remix

  LeSean Thomas is onto something. The up and coming artist, with a quickly expanding body of work that includes stints on Dreamwave's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Arkanium, and a background in...

Tall Tales

  Should've told you about this book months ago. Received a nearly completed copy of Moonstone Books' Cyclone Bill and The Tall Tales couple months back, and despite my very favorable response to the...

Rewind

  Originally, this was going to be the "Pulp Fiction" column. The idea was that over the course of several months, I'd write a series of short inter-connected articles, that could later be spread out...

Resolve

  What a difference a few weeks makes. Been nursing a collection of bad vibes, in the wake of convention season, and have spent the past three weeks running away from the prospect of writing about it,...

Proof Positive

  Are they serious with this? Don't know if you've heard yet, but I guess the Internet has decreed that a "backlash" against the work of Brian Michael Bendis is well underway, and that he's somehow...

Cheap Thrills

"Who says you have to pay $2.95 for a cool comic?" The above is the working motto of a new independent comic publisher called Just A Buck Comics that intends to carve its mark onto the industry by...
