Wednesday Knight’s Haul – Halloween 2012

I write this post several days and relatively healthy after it is dated. I’m a Halloween fan. I grew up loving horror of all kinds with the films as a big part of my youth. And later, I came to see Halloween as a wonderful metaphor for life, society and culture. It means a great […]

The Drude: Drug-Addled, Rock-n-Rolled, Comic Book Creepy

Omaha Perez and I have been convention buddies for several years now. I really enjoyed his books Bodhisattva and Holmes and when we see each other shows, we always take a second to catch up on life and projects.  So, when he handed me an issue of The Drude, I was both happy for him and […]
