Halloween Comes Early

Well, two days early. Screamland trade paperback, from Image Comics, hits the stands Oct. 29. It's a collection of the fun, single issues created by friends Harold Sipe and Hector Casanova.

I contributed a pin-up (to the deluxe edition) using an element from the story. There's the mention of a website where monsters cheapen themselves for the pleasure of others. Not my usual kind of thing, but I figured what the heck and created Miss Lagoon below.

(Btw, the "click here to enter" doesn't really do anything. It just adds to the charming illusion...)

CBG Review

Timothy Wood wrote a very nice piece in Comics Buyers Guide #1648. He named Halo and Sprocket: Natural Creatures as the "Indy Pick of the Month" and gave it four out of four stars. Thank you Timothy! (Click on the image below if you're curious to read it...)

I realize it's a bit self-serving to blog about a review, and possibly not very entertaining to you, the reader.

So here's a picture of a cat smoking a cigar.

You don't like me?

Sometimes, during mid-sentence, I decide to change what I'm saying.

It happened recently as I was using an old TV show reference. Unfortunately, the person I was talking to didn't understand the reference.

I'm pretty sure it made me merely sound like a deranged psycho when I said... "Don't make me angry. You wouldn't like me when... I stab you!"

Gas! Gas!

I own two Captain America comics written and drawn by Jack Kirby.

I opened the Bicentennial Battles to a page with the following panel on it...

When I opened Captain America #193, it noticed this panel...

I then (very disrespectfully) wondered why it would occur to an artist, sitting alone at his drawing table, to write about gas suddenly appearing.

I then had a great desire to pull out other Kirby comics to see if I could find more panels filled with gas.

But, following that, I had an even greater desire not to.
