    December 22, 2014 6:07 pm I have to mention the absolutely marvelous finales of both the Colbert report and the late show with Craig Ferguson.Craig had all kinds of geeky, tangentially related comic book stuff on his show, but it was always done in a goofy way-I'll never forget the time Jeffery Tambour dressing up as Batgirl to do a sketch with Craig Ferguson's Jessica Fletcher-if only because I think it melted Paul's brain a bit/ Conor (or Josh, though I don't think that street procedurals are you kind of thing) do you CBS's elementary-I like that better than the BBC's Sherlock as a take on Sherlock Holmes Watson, and it has a pretty good supporting cast as well. Do either of you wwatch Broolkyn 99? because that show is terrifically funny, and every minute member of the cast manages to be funny in a different way. My favorite TV series of the year has to be final season of Nickelodeon's Legend of Korra, which may be the best superhero story (over the last she especially) I've had the pleasure of watching, and at least to me the universe teams with every bit of the potential of the Star Wars universe and franchise, maybe even more so
    June 8, 2014 10:09 pm I'd recommend HEART by Blair Butler, Kevin Mellon, and Crank. It's a great story about MMA, but it touches on the raw emotive nature of the semi-pro amautuer sports life.

It’s not that a skilled author can’t *write* a nuanced take on places locations cultures races genders orientations and whatever that are different from his or her or their own experience,, but there’s always a specter of appropriation, or integrity to be considered, I think .Always proofread, kids
    May 4, 2014 2:03 pm It's funny that you mention issues of legitimacy and identity issues when talking about who is an authority to write about a place time in a culture in SOUTHERN BASTARDS, Josh. I've encountered criticism to sSCAPLED from Native American authors coming from that a similar context .context.

    February 25, 2013 4:51 pm Reading things digitally does not necessarily encourage distracted thinking, nor does it prevent people from rereading issues, or spending time carefully reading them.
    September 12, 2012 2:53 pm One of the things I've learned, especially when you're making your first couple of stabs at comics creation is that collaborations and projects can fall apart quite frequently and suddenly. It's one of the consequences of having only a few people involved. Lose one or two (to jobs, life or other projects) and the wheels fall off. If you're okay with adjusting your timeframe and allowing for things to take far far, longer than you initially expected, then you might be ok. But comics take a lot of time to make and that's something that is especially useful for writers to keep in mind.
