Right State by Mat Johnson and Andrea Mutti

Right StateMat Johnson, writer; Andrea Mutti, artistVertigo Comics, 2012I was embarrassed to discover that I actually had read this earlier (blame my memory, not the story telling). But for some reason I only wrote a short review on Goodreads. I gave it two stars in May, 2015, and the review was pretty dismissive:Shrill exploration of extreme right wing politics centering…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.
