Friday Book Review: Daytripper

Is this, you ask yourself, another book I've never read, but definitely should? Why, yes, yes it is. Daytripper is another quality title delivered by Vertigo Comics, written by Fabio Moon and drawn by Gabriel Ba. I think it's important to note that the authors are real life twins. It seems to me this helps their work… Continue reading Friday Book Review: Daytripper

Friday Review: Mooncop

You might be asking, "what is Mooncop about." And then I look at you and say, "It's about a cop. On the moon." A premise so simple maybe you could have come up with it yourself. But you didn't!

I've never used that word before in writing, either, so I guess new year,… Continue reading Reading Goals in 2018

Advice For Making Comics

Do you want to make comics? Well let me start with this: it's hard. Now, I don't mean that in a discouraging way. But it's hard work, probably more than most people realize. You have to wrestle a story into good enough shape to write, draw it, ink it, color it, and letter it. I'm… Continue reading Advice For Making Comics

Inktober Retropsective

How convenient that Inktober should end on a Tuesday, so I can write about it on a Wednesday. Now that's timing, October. Inktober, if you don't know, is a designated time for artist to try and draw one picture a day, using only ink. Now, some people followed the official prompt, but I did not.… Continue reading Inktober Retropsective
