Giant-Size Marvel TPB

Friday, May 27th, 2005

The new *Giant-Size Marvel* trade paperback reprints “Too Cold a Night for Dying”, originally published in *Giant-Size Defenders* #4. It’s one of my favorite Defenders yarns, featuring some beautiful artwork by Don Heck. (Yes, I just used the words “beautiful” and “Heck” in the same sentence. Don’s work has been vastly underrated.

No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

Wednesday, May 25th, 2005

It’s been somewhat of a trying day, so forgive me if I keep this short. *Back Issue* #12, published by TwoMorrows, includes a brief interview with yours truly about Destroyer Duck.

That seems to me a quintessentially American attitude. Well, not to some people, one of […]

If this doesn’t scare the shit out of you, you probably voted for Bush and believe the sun orbits the Earth.

Brain Beast

Tuesday, May 17th, 2005

Depression is a funny beast. It’s a chemical imbalance. It’s a psychological state. It’s a chameleon, able to mimic and masquerade as countless other disorders. It’s both crippler and crutch. It’s seductive. It’s repulsive. It loves company. It’s bad company. It’s a habit. It’s a worldview. It’s a noose around the neck and a comfortable […]
