"Chris, I'm curious if you re-read the story and had any further impressions. I have the trades but haven't re-read it so far since as the individual issues came out."

Knowing Who You Are Is Half the Battle

Posted on June 2, 2013 at 6:02pm 10 Comments

I’m a big GI Joe fan.  I grew up playing with the action figures and watching the cartoon- complete with the moral at the end of the story “now you know… and knowing is half the battle.”  I wasn’t aware of the comics at the time or I would have immersed myself in them too.  I’ve also spent a lot more time thinking about GI Joe than is probably healthy for a grown man. 

In my view, the…

Dynamite Fizzles – Again

Posted on May 25, 2013 at 8:00pm 23 Comments

Two years ago, Dynamite launched a limited series to great fanfare.  Kirby: Genesis would feature characters from Kirby’s late career foray into independent comics, like Captain Victory and Silver Star, and even a few discarded ideas that had never seen publication before, like Tiger 28 and…

Hey Kevin,

 

I finished reading your book, Of Games & God, this week. 

 

First of all, great job.  Your book was very readable.  I started it on the flight home and finished it a couple of…

Bridging the Jock/Nerd Divide

Posted on February 28, 2013 at 10:02pm 12 Comments

We never really get over high school, do we? Those old cliques and old resentments still rear their heads in the most unlikely places. Jocks still pick on nerds, making them the target of their jokes and their ire. Nerds, however, now fight back. Freed from the fear of being shoved into a locker, nerds…

Going Solo

Posted on February 1, 2013 at 7:58pm 5 Comments

I’ve always been a team guy. Ever since my childhood love of the Uncanny X-Men and the New Teen Titans, I’ve been drawn to superhero teams. But lately, my interests have become decidedly solitary. More and more, I’m following solo stars.



It’s not like I’ve been averse to…
