Just a quick note to you fans of comics in the NYC area. I caught the masters of comic art show at the Jewish Museum (92nd and 5th) and it was cool. They had a lot of original art by Will Eisner, Jack Kirby, Harvey Kurtzman, Robert Crumb, Gary Panter, and Chris Ware. Plus a […]

Just one comic this week. Usagi Yojimbo 97. Slow, slow, slow. At least for me. I also grabbed Following Cerebus 9 which is an issue devoted to Neal Adams. It’s a hundred pages long and the type is tiny so there just has to be some interesting stuff in there.

I have always been a fan of chocolate and I’m diggin’ a new chocolate experience. I prefer dark chocolate to milk chocolate so dark chocolate miniatures have always been a staple of my diet.

After a couple of whirlwind weeks at the comic shop things have slowed down. I got two comics this week. Strangers in Paradise 84 (only 6 issues left they count down every cover) and The Walking Dead 31. I also had to buy two ink cartridges for my printer. Fifteen bucks per. Boy does that […]

The new TV season is starting and I don’t know if I care one bit. I watched too much last season and I’m burned out. There were actually a lot of good new shows that have premiered in the last two years and I started watching a few of them regularly. Too many, maybe. They […]

A big haul from the comic shop for me this week. I bought nine comics. That is the most in a single week in months. I got five of my regular books: Jonah Hex 11, Savage Dragon 128 , Jack Staff 11, Local 6, and Battler Britton 3. In addition I picked up four new […]

I think putting things in order is fun. There you go. I said it. I’ve had enough of listening to lazy people saying that it has to somehow be a compulsion or neurosis. It is the only way to find things efficiently and the basis of civilization. For what is civilization but organized living that […]
