Happy Earth Day

One of my favorite comics (of many, many, many favorites).   

Paul Chadwick.  Charles Vess.   Moebius.  

It's difficult to consider another triple threat like this - not just for artistic excellence, but also to provide varying styles that offer so much to readers.  Great, great book.

Happy Birthday (a day late) Superman!

April 18, 1938 - the agreed upon publication date of Action Comics #1

For me, Christopher Reeve will always be my Superman. And the first film will always be my favorite film.

This is one, of many, of the scenes I look forward to whenever I have the chance to watch Superman the Movie.

3 Days to CGS Super Show

I will also have at the CGS Super Show the first volume (of 3) of Reading Watchmen, my annotations and analysis on Moore & Gibbons's seminal comic story.  Regularly $5.00, it'll be on sale at the show for 4 bucks (at 80 pages, that's a steal).

And, as I said before, if you're in Reading, PA this weekend (April 6-7) stop by the greater Reading Expo center to get some cool comics and talk with some great creators.  Oh, and Dan & me, too.

4 Day to Super Show

I'll have copies of my chapbook series, Mainelining, with short comic and prose stories written by me and drawn by some fantastic artists - including Jason Copland whose Kill All Monsters! book (with Michael May) is in the latest Previews - at the CGS Super Show this weekend, April 6-7, in Reading, PA.

Convention special:  $2.00 a piece or the whole shebang for 8 bucks.  Can't beat that.  And I guarantee that, thanks to the short prose story included in each (except for 2 and 3, which are straight prose, all the way) these books will take longer to read than your typical DC/Marvel book at an equal or higher price.

So, if you're in the Reading, Pennsylvania area, stop by the Greater Reading Convention Expo Center and check out some cool comics and cooler creators.
