Spent Time Reading Comics This Past Week

In addition to blogging about comics this past week, I actually read some too! I’ve literally got stacks and stacks of comics I’m behind on reading. I got through over 60 comics and two digest this past week.  For some reason I had a hankerin’ for Marvel, so many of these are Siege and X-related. […]

Neil Gaiman signed my one dollar bill

Some time in the early 1990s, I was fortunate enough to meet Neil Gaiman at DragonCon in Atlanta.  He was super-cool and was kind enough to really speak with the fans that were waiting in line for his autograph (not just the lip service some famous people provide). At one point I recall he halted […]

Star Wars Resume – Comic Books

Continuing my Star Wars Resume!  In the summer of 1981, I discovered Star Wars comic books.  Prior to then I’d picked up an issue or two like any kid might have picked up Archie or Sad Sack.  When I bought Marvel Comics Star Wars #50 off the shelf, I knew I was buying something different.  […]

Star Wars Resume – Novels

Continuing my Star Wars Resume! Today I’m featuring my Star Wars novel collection.  I’m excited as I’m about to start the Fate of the Jedi novels (top left hand corner in the photo below).  The rest of these I’ve already read.

Star Wars Resume – Vintage Action Figures

I’ve had Star Wars on the brain lately.  My fanaticism normally cycles like a washing machine through: comics, Doctor Who, Star Wars, Star Trek, and then starts over again with comics.  Seems like I’ve been firmly in the Star Wars spin cycle for a while now.  I’m nearly finished with the ninth novel in the […]

Stretch Armstrong the Werewolf?

Presenting another very special blog entry by my wife, The Irrepressible Gena! Just a little background for you, my wife is not a geek. She’s a wonderful (and gorgeous) normal person.  Without further ado, The Irrepressible Gena’s thoughts on Taylor Lautner’s casting as Stretch Armstrong… Since my office upgraded my computer, I noticed when I […]

Slush Puppies and Marvel Saga – Take Two

The internet is truly amazing.  Back in February I wrote a post about Slush Puppies and sense memory.  In the post I talked about how much I enjoyed drinking lemon-lime Slush Puppies and reading Marvel Saga comics at my mom’s office when I was 13 years old.  Well, thanks to the internet I’m reliving my […]

Spent Time Reading Comics This Past Weekend

Instead of blogging about comics, this weekend I actually read some! I’ve literally got stacks and stacks of comics I’m behind on reading. I only got through 17 comics this weekend, most of which were Marvel Siege-related titles. Here are the titles I read and some quick thoughts on them (and they do contain SPOILERS): […]
