About Me

Well, last week was filled with great strides and frustration.  To begin, I had to buy a new router for my WiFi at home which is where the frustration part came in.  I spent every night once I got home trying to reestablish my network connection between my laptop and my desktop.  Not a fun time had by all.  Eventually, I got it working well enough.  I’ll spare you the gruesome and boring details, but in the end it cost me an arm and a leg, and now my brother’s a robot. 

Unfortunately, this router business put me behind from last week’s blog and I was unable to properly note the passing of DC great Dick Giordano.  Giordano was a penciller, inker, and editor with DC for over 30 years.  He was also instrumental in helping to bring about the Vertigo imprint under DC.  

As for the great strides…  I’m halfway through the first issue of Revelations 23.  I’m at page 21 of what looks to be 40-42 pages for the first issue.  It’s coming along right nicely.  I few minor details to work out, but nothing that’s going to impede the process.  I’m very happy with the way the story is moving along.  That’s easy to say with the first issue, but there’s so much that needs to be established in a first issue, that it’s really not as easy as it seems.  This is the make or break for readers, so it has to be on point.  Granted, I could take the easy route and have the hero character throw a pen and kill an assassin on the upper floor of the mall, but I want to try a little harder.  Ok, that’s the last time I’ll do that… until after the Con.  In addition to working on Revelation 23, I’ve also been putting together the Unwanted Heroes story for the Heroes Con.  The story is titled Bury My Mask at Washington Square, and details the last battle and breakup of the Championaires.  While on the subject of UWH, Chapter IV has been posted and is waiting to be read. 

Now on to the Heroes Con.  This thing is continuing to grow like James peach.  Recently announced guest included the Return of the Mack David Mack of Kabuki and Marvel’s Daredevil and Steve Niles, creator of 30 Days of Night

Last but not least I want to mention some people I met over the weekend at the Roanoke Valley Comic Con in Salem, Virginia; many of whom will also be at the Heroes Con so be sure to check them out there.  Jeremy Massie, creator of The DeadBeat( and Pornin’, and John O’Connor, writer of Black Dawn ( and We Three.  Great guys doing great work.  I highly recommend their books. 

I’m done for this week.  Gotta get back to crossing the T’s and dotting the… lower case J’s.
