A Conversation With Karen

[ 4 ] March 4, 2017

Paradigm?

[ 0 ] February 16, 2016

The Strip I Didn’t Dare Frame

The Strip I Didn’t Dare Frame

[ 0 ] October 29, 2015

The background of this post is a daily SUPERMAN that I wrote around 1980, during my two year run on the newspaper strip. It’s kind of a charming moment, and in its own way reflects the paranoia that every writer has about every editor (or publisher) sometimes…are they doing this because they hate me? Perry’s […]

Welcome

Welcome

[ 2 ] July 8, 2015

Welcome. Crawling slowly into the digital age. Looking for something that can replace the contact and conversation that I had with my fanzines (back in the dinosaur age of comics), or the almost 20 years of writing lettercols. I know this is a very different platform, but I’m hoping it can satisfy some of the […]

Will Eisner and The NY Comicon

Will Eisner and The NY Comicon

[ 1 ] June 16, 2014

Working on the Eisner book yesterday, having fun doing detective work…for decades, Will and Denis Kitchen have told flip sides of the same story of their first meeting at the 1971 NY Comicon, the first time either of them attended. I was always a bit jealous–that was MY first Comicon too–why didn’t I meet you […]
