On Saturday I attended the panel being hosted by the Center for Cartoon Studies, which is an art school in White River Junction, Vermont, not much more than an hour away from my alma mater. Like last time the discussion was done mostly by Alec Longstreth, along with Josh Bayer from the Sequential Artists’ Workshop.Read more →
Kickstarter and SPX are a match made in heaven, right? Well let’s see what the panel thought.Read more →
I figure you’d had enough of my yapping in the previous thousand-word post so I made this new post to post all the post-SPX stuff or whatever. Basically just a giant list of things I remember and want to mention because I felt like it was worth mentioning. Get ready for link spam.Read more →
This was my second time attending the Small Press Expo in just as many years, which to be honest is a pretty impressive level of consistency on my part. My general relationship with conventions is that once I go it’s usually enough exposure to my comic bookin’ brethren to last me a couple of years. And yet, I came to SPX again more-or-less under my own volition.Read more →
So. Here we are. Another weekend gone, another 48 hours closer to the Fimbulwinter. But it’s been a very special 48 hours, because this was the weekend where I and the guys from Spandexless stomped around the Small Press Expo of Bethesda, Maryland.

George Lucas has never been accused of being an eloquent wordsmith, nor Star Wars ever hailed as the 20th century equivalent of Hamlet (though the focal father-son dynamic does warrant a few comparisons). And though the Star Wars saga has been criticized for its stiff dialogue and awkward direction, it does stand as a one of the most popular and influential franchises in media history. But Star Wars was once very different from the enduring epic we all know and love, and not necessarily for the better. Thanks to J.W. Rinzler and Mike Mayhew, we get a glimpse at what could have been in the first issue of Dark Horse’s comic adaptation of the first draft of The Star Wars.Read more →

Ah, Boston. Land of people whose accent I always confuse with Brooklyn accents. I tried to visit the Bunker Hill monument while I was there, but couldn’t figure out a good parking situation, so I settled for visiting Comic Con. UGH. Kidding, I was in the area specifically for Boston Comic Con. It was my […]Read more →
Well. Here we are.
Now I know this is not the first time we’ve fallen off the face of the Earth for a while, and I can only apologize for it so many times. The fact of the matter is that this website is a labor of love so sometimes that’s just going to happen. Thankfully most of you have been really cool about that.
But this time it happened for a reason I totally hadn’t expected and I want to talk about it for a second: Conventions.Read more →
