About Me

Well, it’s time to start preparing for the HeroesCon again.  For those of you who are unaware or just don’t know when it is this year, go here: http://www.heroesonline.com/heroescon/ .  Yeah, I’m planning on going back this year.  I don’t think we’re going to try and do a whole booth this time.  Expect to see me a Small Press table.  So, what’s the game plan this year?  Well, I’ve already detailed in a previous blog what I hope to do, but in truth, for now, I’m just gonna wing it. 

I will say that the story I’m currently writing has taken on a life of its own.  It’s so weird to create a universe from scratch and watch as it starts to build itself.  I’m expecting a little baby Spock to pop up at any minute.  It’s really rather exciting.  I’m used to writing things out of order, but that’s usually when I have a set beginning and end.  This is completely new.  Ideas and story arcs are sprouting to life on its own, and creating its own chain of events.  It’s really weird.  Suddenly, I have a full storyline forming that I hadn’t planned or even conceived.   

Enough of that.  On to something new.  I’ve got to mention this because it was so cool and completely unexpected.  Many of you, even if you’re full blown comic geeks have never heard of a limited series by Rick Veitch called Brat Pack.  For the unenlightened, get enlightened.  Find it and read it.  So, the other day I’m watching a new episode of Batman: Brave and the Bold cartoon, and what do I see?  This:

Well, you ask.  What does this mean?  Well for those of you who haven’t read Brat Pack, let me show you. 

Yeah, the star and the pound sign are out of place, but you get it. 

Last week I was going o detail an idea I had that would never see the light of day.  It was a Batman/Superman/Star Wars crossover.  No, it’s really pretty cool.  It had Bats and Supes traveling to the other side of the galaxy via Mother Box.  Darkseid helped create the Death Star in exchange for what the Emperor knew about the anti-life equation.  There’s belief that Krypton didn’t blow up on its own, but was targeted by the Death Star because rebel factions were hiding out there.  Anyway, we get to see Batman fight a Sith and Superman go on a destructive rampage after being super charged by the twin suns of Tattoine.  Batman even uses the force.  The premise is really cool, but never made it beyond the idea stage, for obvious reasons. 

Well, that’s all for this week.  One question before I go- “If you were a hotdog would you eat yourself?  I know I would.”
