Here’s what else I’ve been up to lately:
Five for Friday
Last weekend’s assignment was to Name Five Memorable Islands From The Comics. Mine were:
1. Hydra Island
2. Paradise Island
3. Dinosaur Island
5. Oolong Island
But that post if full of great ones that I didn’t think of.
David’s Dinosaur Blog
My son let his dinosaur blog lapse, but he’s promised me that he’s recommitting himself to it. Up this week, a non-stegosaurus and an indricothere cake.
What Are You Reading?
Recently, I’ve been reading a monster-hunter comic called Ex Occultus and Jeff Smith’s Shazam: The Monster Society of Evil.
After the break: July comics, SpringCon, and I get quoted.
What Looks Good for July
This week’s Gorillas Riding Dinosaurs is a look at the cool, new adventure comics coming out in July. We got monsters, penguins, furry warriors, the Mad Hatter, pirates, Frankenstein, Conan, Doctor Spektor, evil summer camp, Sherlock Holmes, aliens, secret agents (one of whom is Cinderella), serial killers, talking hippos, gun-toting primates, cowboys, a Nazi doomsday weapon in a hidden city, Mulder and Scully vs 30 Days of Night, a dragon-punching kitten, and (as if you needed it) more.
I Probably Think This Song is About Me
While looking for an image of the cover for the new collected Warlord of Io from SLG (pre-order it now please, because I want more of it!) to use with the GRD post above, I noticed a quote from my review on James Turner’s website. I hate that I’m vain enough to mention it, but I love Turner’s work so much that it was quite a thrill to see.
I think my camera’s dying or something because the pictures I took at SpringCon look really washed out. Or maybe it’s operator-error. Anyway, my full report from the show (with tons of washed out photos) is at Robot 6. That’s me with Jeff Parker and Phil Hester above.
