    Sep 04, 2022 · Comic news

    I was invited to give a history and tour of my SherlockComics.com website at the most recent “Five Miles From Anywhere” virtual scion meeting, and it’s now available for viewing, in case you’re curious.

  2. Baltimore’s Going to Be a Great Show!

    Aug 30, 2022 · Comic news

    There are some great East Coast region shows that I haven’t attended since I moved to the Midwest (ten years ago!). One of the best is the Baltimore Comic-Con. I am thrilled that KC and I are able to go this year, because it’s the best kind of traditional comic book show for me: plenty of guests, reflecting all kinds of comics, from all different eras, with a definite comic focus. It’s about two months out, and tickets are available […]

  4. My San Diego Comic Con 2022

    Aug 07, 2022 · Comic news

    I survived San Diego Comic Con (SDCC) 2022! How’d I do it? By flying in Wednesday and flying out Friday. Which gave me one day to do panels, and even that was a lot. (Mark Evanier was complaining that people don’t call it Comic-Con International: San Diego, which is its proper name, and wondered why they still use the old name. For the same reason Batgirl is back again: traditional comic fans love nostalgia and hate change. And I include […]

  5. 25 Years Is a Pretty Good Run… Is Anyone Left at Oni?

    Jul 15, 2022 · Comic news

    Two weeks ago, news broke that Oni Press stalwarts James Lucas Jones (company publisher) and Charlie Chu (VP of Creative & Business Development) were no longer at the company. Today came word that four more high-level staffers are gone. Popverse reports that “Senior VP of sales and marketing Alex Segura, Sales Manager Henry Barajas, Senior Editor Amanda Meadows, and Editor Jasmine Amiri are no longer with the company.” These were apparently layoffs.

  9. Watson and Holmes Returns in Mutiny Magazine

    May 17, 2022 · Comic news

    We live in an era where nothing is dead forever. Brand awareness is so difficult to develop, with so many things demanding our attention, that anything that was somewhat successful has a chance to come back. Which means I shouldn’t be surprised that Watson and Holmes, the urban comic version of the classic characters, has a new story coming out! But I am very pleased. This is one of my favorite takes on the character in comics. We last saw […]

  10. ComicMix to Publish Lost Seuss Stories

    May 13, 2022 · Comic news

    This is a bit devious. Last year, ComicMix ended up settling a lawsuit brought by the Dr. Seuess estate. That decision prohibited them from publishing Oh, The Places You’ll Boldly Go!, a Kickstarted Seuss/Star Trek mashup. A judge had previously ruled that such combinations are not parodic or transformative. Apparently, as part of that lawsuit, research was done on the Seuss copyrights. Now ComicMix is crowdfunding The Zaks and Other Lost Stories, a collection of six stories now in the […]

  21. 2120 Choose-Your-Path Graphic Novel Out in May

    Apr 06, 2022 · Comic news

    Out in May is an intriguing graphic novel from Avery Hill Publishing. 2120 by George Wylesol is a choose-your-own-path … well, adventure doesn’t seem the right word, as you’re a computer repairman trapped in a generic office building. You follow choices through the pages, although many of them, at least at the beginning, are very similar looking rooms and hallways. (I had a review PDF, but that is my least favorite format for these kinds of books that require jumping […]
