Only one regular comic for me this week: Usagi Yojimbo – 103. Always reliable. Always good. Plus I picked up a hardcover collected edition: Conan: “Hall of the Dead and Other Stories” Conan is one of those books that I’ve decided to pick up collected instead of issue by issue. It reprints seven issues of […]

I mentioned my set of fortune telling cards a few blogs back. Well I finally made a full color prototype deck of them. I have one thing to say after that experience: Holy cow is it a pain in the ass. Forty eight individual hand crafted cards. I’m not even counting all the work that […]

Man what a slow week at the local comic shop. I got no new comics. None of my regulars were in and there was nothing new that I was interested in. I did pick up the latest issue (22) of “Back Issue” magazine to tide me over. It’s a mag all about comics of the […]

I’m back from an afternoon trip to the comic shop. I picked up two of my regulars and a collected edition: StormWatch Post Human Division – 7 Samurai Heaven and Earth Vol 2 – No 4 Criminal Vol 1 “Coward”. This collects the first five issues of the Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips series. I […]

I just stocked up on some art supplies last week. Paper, pens, paint, and brushes came through my door on Thursday. One of the things I purchased was a new technical pen. For those who don’t know what that is it’s a pen that was created to make technical drawings. It makes a single width […]
