28.Jan.2011 This is it: A “Wizard” Remembrance/Reaction
This week, news that both Wizard and ToyFare magazine were being canceled hit the interwebs. I did my big college internship at Wizard and then scored a job there a few months later when I graduated from college. It was my first career-type job and it led to a ton of great friendships and terrific [...]
I’ve haven’t blogged much about my great love for “Scott Pilgrim,” but with the first trailer hitting the internetz for the upcoming Edgar Wright movie adaptation of the outstandingly great comic series by Bryan Lee O’Malley, well… I need to gush!
08.Feb.2010 Happy Bale-entine’s Day!
After “The Dark Knight” came out, many among the crew at Wizard HQ back in 2008 were constantly quoting some of the more hilarious lines from “Batman Begins” and “TDK.” While both those movies are extremely enjoyable, Christian Bale’s gruff Batman growl is just too funny not to endlessly mimic. Frequently, during meetings or random [...]
Keeping up with comics has become a curious situation for me over the past six months.
At Big Apple Comic Con this past weekend, I grabbed a free copy of the last issue of Wizard I worked on before being let go. There are two pieces in this ish that it was particularly enjoyable to write, the “Book of the Month” feature on Dark Horse’s “Conan the Cimmerian” and the “Webcomic [...]
A few months back while I was copyediting a big interview with Geoff Johns and Grant Morrison that eventually appeared in Wizard #216, when I stumbled upon a quote from Morrison I loved so much that I made a note to post it later on this blog.
04.Sep.2009 Thank you all!
Hey folks. Last night, at a little before 8 p.m., I was let go from my job at Wizard Entertainment. Since then, I have received an overwhelming amount of amazingly supportive, kind and flattering emails, Facebook messages and tweets from a ton of truly great people! Thank you all so much! I guess when the [...]
03.Sep.2009 Enemy of Peanuts’ PoP! video plug
At Chicago Comic-Con, the fellas from Panels On Pages were videoing in full effect and waved me down for an interview at the end of the con. Though—I’m told—parts of the “PoP! Quiz” I took will air in a later video, the PoP!stars had me film a quick plug for their site, Wizard and EnemyOfPeanuts.com [...]
27.Aug.2009 Webcomics in ‘Wizard’
Readers of the EoP! Though I’m not normally one to mix my hobby blog and my day job, a story I conceived and edited for issue #214 of Wizard is now online and you should all check it out.
17.Jul.2009 Hodgepodge: A post of assorted random stuffs.
Hey there, folks! If you’re a regular ’round these parts, you’ll notice that this week has been particularly light on the blogging. Sorry about that. After last weekend’s crazy-busy vacation, this week has been chock-full of tons of work and other life stuff all piled on top of me seriously needing to catch up on [...]
