10.Aug.2013 Lollapalooza 2013
Continuing what is now a three-year tradition with my brother Dan, I attended Lollapalooza in Chicago again this year. This year our sister Lexie and my lovely girlfriend Katie came along to partake in three days of music, smuggled rum, Roman Cokes, sunshine, dancing, aching legs, and too many slices of Chicago-style deep dish. Here’s […]
08.Feb.2013 Gamma-infused Pizza Party
If you picked up the truly excellent Dark Horse Presents #20 last month, you had the distinct pleasure of reading a radical little story by Ulises Farinas and Erick Freitas. Comics Alliance wrote a great piece about the nostalgia-fueled pop culture-laced fun bomb of a comic that is Gamma, so I suggest you read what […]
02.Jan.2013 Another Jim Gibbons comic book appearance
Remember, back in September, when I relayed a story about how artist Evan Shaner had added a Jim Gibbons-related Easter egg to Buddy Cops, a story appearing in Dark Horse Presents? Well, that ain’t the only Jim Gibbons comic reference anymore!
12.Oct.2012 Why Movember? Why register? Why grow a mustache?
I’m sure many of you (hopefully soon-to-be hairy-lipped) men out there are thinking, “Movember sounds like it could be lot of fun… but should I join?” That’s fair. Let me lay out some more info for you that might help you make your decision… (That said, if you’re just excited and ready to sign up, […]

It’s that time again…
24.Sep.2012 I’ve truly entered the comic book world.
If you read comics for long enough and pay attention, you’ll begin to notice that writers and artists love to work tons of references into their work. Subtle references, clever references, inside jokes, bizarre gags and obscure imagery that are often a treat for eagle-eyed and perceptive readers. Sometimes it’s as simple as a song […]
17.Sep.2012 100,000 miles in my Element
Last week, my 2004 Galapagos Green Honda Element hit 100,000 miles!
14.Aug.2012 San Diego Comic-Con 2012: The Booty
Once again, I didn’t spend much cash this year, but here’s what I brought home from Comic-Con International…
23.Jul.2012 San Diego Comic-Con 2012: The Photos
Continuing my Comic-Com International recollection for 2012 after posting a list of highlights a few days ago, here are all the photos I took at this year’s show. In year’s past, I’ve come home from San Diego only to realize I took about five to ten photos that in no way showcase the Comic-Con experience. […]
21.Jul.2012 San Diego Comic-Con 2012: The Memories
It was a helluva show, folks! Comic-Con International 2012, aka San Diego Comic-Con, was a raucous success this year. By far the best SDCC I’ve ever attended. Not only was it a very encouraging show—seems every comic person I talked to was selling a lot of stuff and having a great time, so the air […]
