I’m really excited about the writing I’m doing for PiQ Magazine. I didn’t get a chance to talk about issue 2 (May), because it came out while I was at the NY Con, so I’m catching up. PiQ (pronounced “peek”) covers fan (I call it “geek”) culture and genre entertainment, including movies, video games, comics, and anime, with a positive perspective.
In that issue, I interviewed Todd Dezago about Perhapanauts and wrote a review of Batman: Death Mask #1 (previewed in the issue as well). This issue also covers Torchwood, the Nana movie, Iron Man, game show fandom, and a BUNCH of other topics. (Those were only the four I was most interested in.)
The best part about getting my comp copies is that I look forward to reading the magazine despite being a contributer. I mean, I’d be checking this out even if I wasn’t writing for them. It’s so attractive and modern in design, it immediately begs to be grabbed and flipped through.
The next issue, June’s, is due out on Wednesday. There, I am very proud of my article on josei manga as well as my review of Life Sucks. Look for the Speed Racer M on the cover. Check it out and let me know what you think!
