I had a short interview with Don shortly before he passed away. I asked one of the best questions I ever asked, and he came up with the best response - Don was damned funny. I asked him what would happen if Parker and Dortmunder ever ran into each other in a bar. And Donald Westlake said, laughing, "They would take each other's measure very quickly. They would recognize each other instantly. They wouldn't say a word. And then Dortmunder would get up and leave the room."

 And if you don't know Dortmunder, it's time for a visit to the library and some googling on the malicious and stone-cold Richard Stark...

July 19, 2010 10:55 pm I talked to Kieron Gillen and Marc Ellerby about this a while back, and they were both very enthusiastic and well-versed in the club's history. More here:
May 24, 2010 10:09 pm I got a copy from DC this week because I'm doing a story about it. It's a big, heavyweight book. It's expensive, but if you dig this experiment at all, it's very worth it.
March 6, 2010 12:39 am I have some pretty serious opinions about both of these topics. HATED G.I. Joe - my little brother's generation, and generally the dumbest cartoon in existence, and a worse movie. That said, I just bought my first GIJ trade, GI JOE: COBRA on the recommendation of the IFanboys and agree, it's definitely worth reading - better if it were MA-rated, but very worthy, content-wise. I also interviewed Max ( and can tell you - for a guy who's dyslexic (" I  am very, very dyslexic, and as a kid, sometimes comics were the only way I could process information.") he tells a hell of a story. I'd give the guy a shot.

This was hilarious, even if you don't have any context for the characters. I'd rather see a Global Frequency complete collection, but if you're even slightly into Warren's twisted sense of humor, this is is totally worth it.

Ask and you shall receive. I wrote this a year ago for Kirkus Reviews.

 The Zombie Survival Guide:
Recorded Attacks
Max Brooks
Illustrated by Ibraim Roberson
Three Rivers/Crown / October / 9780307405777
$16.95 paperback

Fans of zombie lore rejoice—Max Brooks renders the end of days chronicled in The Zombie Survival Guide (2003) and World ar Z (2006) with this graphic adaptation of history’s most gruesome Recorded Attacks. “I wanted to do The Zombie Survival Guide as a graphic novel, even before I wrote World War Z,” says Brooks. “I’ve always loved the concept of visual storytelling. I am very dyslexic and, as a kid, sometimes comics were the only way I could process information.” The book vividly portrays survivor accounts of historical zombie encounters with artwork by emerging Brazilian artist
Ibraim Roberson. “I had always wanted to ‘flesh out’ the recorded attacks, not just for their ‘zombieness,’ but because I’m a huge lover of history and I’m always trying to find ways to inject it into my work,” says the author. “Here details are everything. I wanted these stories to be as realistic as possible, right down to the fashion, architecture, technology and even the facial hair of each period.” Brooks admits that this book is one of the most challenging projects he’s ever done—and he had ample legwork to do to get it off the ground. “I gave myself a mountain of extra homework trying to find accurate historical representations of each period to pass on to the artist,” he says. “For every hour I spent writing the actual script, I must have spent three trying to find pictures of
Roman armor, or the hold of a slave ship, or  North African fort of the French foreign
legion. I guess I’m still making up for all that homework I never did in college.”

Man, this is depressing. It could have been great.

I talked a little bit about it with Greg back in January. Some comments on the film and the new series here:

The last thing he had to say was this: " I haven’t seen the final cut. What I have seen is visually beautiful. But this is not Whiteout as written. It’s people taking those characters and that story and telling a story that’s suitable for screen. My final defense is that Chandler defense: the book’s still here."

August 31, 2009 11:09 am Wow, here's a thought. Warren Ellis works for Walt Disney now.
