In the News!

It’s a good week for being me! I opened up a print copy (on newsprint! Gets on your hands!) of Boston’s Weekly Dig, only to find that they reprinted my tweet to them about my Haiku Beer Reviews from last week’s Beer Summit (for which I had tickets from the Dig), and they even printed one of the haikus (for ZOMBIE KILLER Meade from B.Nektar) in their pages. This marks the second time that the Dig has printed one of my silly poems (the last time being in October, 2010 in their “Oh, Cruel World!” column, wherein I expressed my violent rage about a bicycle accident in verse) which all just makes me think that they should give me a job as “Official Writer of Silly Verse” or something.

Vagabond Theatre Group, who is the producing the upcoming reading of my play True Believers, posted a lovely and thoughtful blogpost about my play, and the trend (or lack thereof) of comic book-related stories in theatre. It’s a brief but flattering piece, that you should check out if you have the chance!

Coming up: even more news that I can’t quite officially announce yet. Hollerr.

Top Ten

It’s that time of year again, when every website and blog and news outlet dials up their completely arbitrary criterium and publishes their “Top 10” lists for the year. This year I finally pulled off something I’ve been meaning to do for a while: a Top 10 list of “Top 10” lists of the year. A comprehensive list of the best of the best of the “Best Of” lists.

ME SO META.

Review: The Nightly News

The VOICE says: When killing activists, never shoot for the head, always aim for the heart.”

Over at DailyGenoshan.com, I’ve posted my review of Jonathan Hickman’s debut book The Nightly News, which combines contemporary graphic design, infographics, prose, photorenderings, and comic book dialogue with a gazillion conflicting narratives to tell the story of a domestic terrorist cult determined to take down the American news media. In case that sentence wasn’t clear, it’s absolutely nuts. Check it out.
