As he moves into his new awful, one-bedroom […]

Michael Moorcock’s Multiverse Reprinted

Every so often, I am reminded that I have been doing this for a long while. The latest bit of nostalgia came from the announcement from Titan Comics that they will be releasing The Michael Moorcock Library: Multiverse Volume 1 on July 12. This 160-page hardcover reprints the first six issues of Michael Moorcock’s Multiverse, which was a 12-issue series that launched in November 1997 from DC Comics’ Helix science fiction imprint. I know I read it at the time […]

Moriarty: A Clockwork Empire #3 Covers

The Moriarty: A Clockwork Empire miniseries continues in issue #3, due out April 19, with two different covers available. (I’ve previously posted covers from the first issue, due in February, and the second issue, due in March.) The series is written by Fred Duval & Jean-Pierre Pécau and illustrated by Stevan Subic, with this issue having 48 color pages for $4.99. I’d post an issue description but the publisher is using the same text for each — which makes it all […]

RushOrderTees Review: Custom Tees, My New Favorite Way to Advertise My Site

Thus, when Rush Order Tees asked if I wanted to sample their product, I jumped at the chance. Now that I have a pretty logo, I wanted to promote it. They provided some credit for me to use, and I wandered through their no minimum order section. I am very […]

My Favorite Comics and Manga of 2022

Been a while since I’ve done one of these… I don’t pretend to claim these are the best, as the comic industry has long moved beyond where one person could be familiar with everything coming out. These are the books that came out this year that really moved me or entertained me or left me with things to think about, presented in alphabetical order. All My Friends by Hope Larson Asylum by Greg Means and Kazimir Lee Cat + Gamer […]

What Did You Eat Yesterday? Volume 19

With this latest installment, What Did You Eat Yesterday? volume 19, the series by Fumi Yoshinaga remains my favorite manga. One of the strong reasons is that it’s so rare to see comic characters in late middle age going through challenges of daily life. Each chapter stands alone, and the focus of each chapter is how to make a reasonably priced meal using seasonal produce or tying into recent events, but the underlying conflicts involve such things as whether one […]

Wacom Intuos: A Trial Run

Thanks to the generosity of a publicity person, I had the pleasure of trying out a small Wacom Intuous tablet recently. Of course I knew that the Wacom was the preferred device for drawing digital art, but I’m not a creator that way, so I was curious what else it could be used for. Setup took some time, mostly because I needed to restart my Mac and I had way too many browser tabs open. That’s my fault. Once I […]
