I’ve let almost a week slip by with only a couple of comment replies posted. Sorry. I’ve been immersed in Doctor Fate. I’ll post some thoughts on the series when I finish this script. I’m experimenting a bit (always dangerous) and learning a few things (always interesting — to me, anyway).

Alone with Fate on a Saturday Night

I suppose the title says it all, doesn’t it? Bitch, bitch, moan, moan…

“…and it’s not like you’re going to read about it on the Steve Gerber Web site.”

Oh, sure you are. Well, from a link on Steve’s web site, anyway. In an interview for, Marvel editor Tom Brevoort relates the story of the worst mistake he ever made. Basically, I’m it. About 98% of what Tom says in this interview is accurate. The other two percent look different from his point […]

Some Thoughts on Zauriel – Part 2 (Finally)

Sunday, January 14th, 2007

If you haven’t already, go read Part 1, then come back and join us for the next paragraph.

Thursday, January 4th, 2007

I’m amazed at how these brief quasi-meditations seem to evoke so many comments. Here’s one more for you. Have you ever been introduced to a total stranger for the first time and experienced a flash of *recognition*, as though you’d known the person all your life — or in a prior one? That actually happened […]
