Cemetery Beach

Cemetery BeachWarren Ellis, writer; Jason Howard, artist and book designImage Comics, 2019Warren Ellis suggested this miniseries as a break from Trees, the other series he co-created with artist Jason Howard. It certainly is quite a contrast: a nearly nonstop action story, much of the plot revolving around a single action. An advance scout from Earth named Mike Blackburn…See More

Heroes Convention 2019

I'm volunteering again at this year's Heroes Convention in lovely Charlotte, NC. They are calling us Sidekicks this year, complete with badges and yellow t-shirts. It's a good idea: makes the volunteers easy to spot on the floor, and helps when you're managing signing lines. Unfortunately Jason Marconnet couldn't make it this year. If he had we would have gone out to dinner and I'd still be downtown at the art auction! Hopefully we'll meet up again next year: he's planning to come.Friday, June…See More

Fun Home: The Musical

Alison Bechdel's graphic memoir Fun Home was adapted as a musical (with a book by Lisa Kron and music by Jeanine Tesori), and won a Tony Award for Best Musical in 2015. I remember hearing NPR interviews with the creators at the time (including previews of several of the musical numbers), but as far as I could tell we've never discussed it here. It just opened in Charlotte, NC this week, produced by the local Actor's Theater, so I went to see it last night.It's a really good show, and captures…See More

Heroes Convention 2009

Posted on June 19, 2009 at 11:26pm 2 Comments

After a late start, spent almost seven hours at the convention. I attended one panel discussion: "The New Power Generation of Comics" with Brian Michael Bendis, Ivan Brandon, Ed Brubaker, Jonathan Hickman, and Matt Fraction. Matt Brady of Newsarama attempted to moderate, with limited success (at one point Fraction turned a question around and basically interviewed Brady instead of the other way around). These writers all know each other, and had a good time tossing the questions around,… Continue

Thanks, Mark. Just clearing up a question a friend made of me about the review of Don Quixote (I'm NOT that Rob Davis). This looks like a fun place, though I doubt I'll have much time to visit often.
