Name: Jared Blumberg

Bio: I read comics, sell comics, write comics, draw comics, and review comics. I gravitate toward original work, particularly books that frequently get slapped with labels like 'mature readers' and 'indie', but I enjoy the full spectrum of genres when done well. I'm big on getting the average person into reading comics, and showing them that there's much more to our medium than super heroes. You can check out my ramblings at oneofthemreaders.wordpress.com.

    May 24, 2013 1:21 pm I know this struggle all too well, since I own and run a shop. While we obviously want all the local comics fans to come in and have a good time and keep us in business, I completely understand that they have the right to go elsewhere if we suck. So yeah, you go above and beyond for them. Because you were going to anyway. Because if you didn't get into this business due to the passion you have for what you're selling, then you are a moron and you will soon be closed. To those who might be on the fence about your local shop, I only have this to say: try to meet them halfway. If they don't have the book you're looking for, don't get salty until you've asked them to special order it for you first. If they don't have any events, ask about it. Most folks want the best for their shops, and are simply too busy to stay on top of everything. Running a small business is rewarding, but sweet Jeebus is it a LOT of work.
    May 23, 2013 8:32 pm A line of dialogue taken from the title of a Mclusky album?! I freaking LOVE this book. And I also kind of love the concept of a telepathy coma.
    May 21, 2013 9:54 pm The fact that this book exists and that it's gaining popularity makes me do a happy dance. I too was a little bummed about the super-hero-y turn, but I'm hoping it gets taken to new and disturbing places. Barely-related fanboy observation: 'Science is the new rock and roll' is the greatest slogan ever.
    May 8, 2013 8:41 pm I'm still trying to figure out why everyone drawn by Harris these days has black fingernails, like they're in goth bands. It's just kind of odd.
    May 7, 2013 10:46 am That or Shawn Michaels.
    December 13, 2012 1:17 pm And of course I misspell something after complaining about spelling errors. That's supposed to be 'A pointless contrivance'. Derp.
    November 20, 2012 12:48 pm Most of humanity's definition of 'quality' isn't what you're hoping. It bums me out as well. Every book I like these days seems to die an unnaturally early death. And as soon as I'm doing a happy dance that Shade is appearing in a book again, they send him back to the area of madness unceremoniously. I give up.
    September 27, 2012 11:37 am I'm hoping the wheels come off in the next issue and the world of Happy is completely screwy, and it doesn't end up being a fantasy cooked up in the mind of a man undergoing horrific torture, not unlike the end of the movie Brazil. This was far more set up than I was expecting. I still love Robertson's artwork, though.
    September 26, 2012 5:18 pm This felt like such a Garth Ennis book.
