Who am I?

A happy father. A lucky husband. A lawyer and development professional.

I blog at Between the Stations and occasionally contribute to Funnybook Babylon. My ever-expanding bookshelf is here. I infrequently write about food and take pictures.

That's everything.

The great Jack Kirby, King of Comics, would have been 97 years old today. He is remembered in images here.

Happy Birthday to the King. His work is still amazing, even after all these years…

the Four Ages of Conan Portfolio, by Barry Windsor-Smith, was released in varying different printings and colorings by Barry through the Gorblimey Press.

The last time I saw a set for sale, it was a framed set of four color prints, and the seller was listing it at $3,000.00, and I am pretty sure they will get every penny and more.

Barry colored the first 50 signed copies by himself (if memory serves) and so some of them came out slightly differently than others. Regardless, I have posted both the Black and White version (the 2nd Edition), and the aforementioned colored versions.

You’d Better Show Concrete Park Some R-E-S-P-E-C-T This September – Talking With Erika Alexander And Tony Puryear

R-E-S-P-E-C-T’s debut next month will mark the first time Concrete Park’s been released as a full-length serial. Storylines have previously been offered as strips in Dark Horse Presents, to critical acclaim. Theyfeatured people of color struggling in a harsh urban environment, and even though that was future sci-fi, the situation mirrored many of the same struggles people of color face on Earth today, like isolation, segregation, and persecution. Houghton-Mifflin Harcourt selected Concrete Park as one of the Best American Comics of 2013, and Alexander and Puryear want to continue delivering the same thought-provoking, action-packed drama with R-E-S-P-E-C-T.

Alexander’s spoken to Bleeding Cool in the past about her and Puryear’s long journey to getting Concrete Park into print. More than a decade ago, they pitched a live-action sci-fi story with a Black cast to a Hollywood executive who rejected them specifically because the characters weren’t white, and that motivated the creators to adapt a storyline for comics, a medium with fewer barriers to entry. Learning and adjusting to this new field and connecting with Dark Horse was an arduous, years-long process.

I read an excerpt of this in Dark Horse Presents. The writing/premise is ok, but I’m really interested in Tony Puryear’s art.
