Old/New Media

So I am writing this at 10.30 in the morning with a tear in my eye. I have just listened to the last every Chris Moyles Breakfast show on Radio 1. For the past 8 and a half years every morning he has been on the air, with his team, telling things as he sees them. Sometimes controversial, sometimes thought provoking but always entertaining. His was a brand of radio show that is missing, more talk, less music, but always well thought out. 8 and a half years is a long time to listen to one show. I think I have missed about 4 weeks in that time, when I have been on holiday or away on business. I have listened to the highs and lows and today, watching for the last time I saw both the fun, enjoyment and respect that Chris brings to the radio. And it got me thinking...

Big Dog Ink Does Special Signing!

This past Saturday, Jesse James Comics, a premiere comics book store in Glendale, AZ, was invaded by the some of the most outstanding artists and writers out there also known as Big Dog Ink. Set against an abnormally hot September desert, things inside the shop were even hotter (but in the good way). Armed with an arsenal of brilliantly colored banners displaying the best of BDI’s comic creations Ian Snyder, Natali Sanders, Jenevieve Broomall, Wayne Gardiner, as well as writer and publisher Tom Hutchinson came to rock the place.

One thing I noticed right off the bat. This team doesn’t take anything for granted. They were not only more than willing to talk about their creations, they were also visibly engaged with the fans...

Mankind

Based on the Upcoming Epic Broadcast Series, Neal Adams, Marv Wolfman, Dennis Calero, Nathan Edmondson and Bill Sienkiewicz, are the Writers/Cover Artists and Illustrators of the First Graphic Novels Based on a HISTORY™ Program.

The Good:
The premise is good. Finding a way to make history more visual is a great thing. My daughter sat next to me for more than half the book and did ask questions as to what was going on, so points there.

The Marathon story. It is one of my favorite periods in history and it was unexpected to see
this story during the introduction issue. I figured it would be some huge famous battle, not one that is common but so few actually know.

I enjoyed the art and color in the book...

Happy Birthday Geek-o-Rama!

In just 35 minutes (from the time I start writing this), it will be not only my birthday but the official birthday of this site. It’s hard for me to believe that on this very date last year, I went to my very first comicon. It was there that I fell in love with comics all over again. It was just a few short weeks later that I started reviewing comics and making connections within this amazing industry.

Fast forward a mere 6 months and I attended C2E2 on my first ever press badge. I walked in thinking that nobody would take me seriously and walked out with more books and business cards than I knew what to do with. A mere month later and I had asked Walter if he would join me in reviewing...
