Summer’s winding down, and I guess that means it’s time for me to start blogging again. The Comic Book Story of Beer comes out in just over a month (Sept. 22nd) and we have NPR to thank for letting people know about it. Check out this article/interview by Alastair Bland: Guzzling 9,000 Years Of History With ‘The Comic Book Story Of Beer’

Commemorating the March on Washington 50 years ago today, here’s a panel from The Gettysburg Address: A Graphic Adaption. Below is a round-up of some of the internet buzz that the book has created since its release. If you want to cut to the chase, these articles suggest that the book is worth your time. It is interesting to read the different parts of the narrative that resonate with each reviewer, though. If you only have time to read one of the following, I suggest the CBR article since it includes commentary from Jonathan Hennessey (and a little from me) about the process of creating the book and the ideas therein.

I’m in Studio Lock Down to crank out a short comic that I’m very excited to be drawing, but more on that later. In the meantime, I’ll just direct you to this extensive article on Forbes.com about 13th Age. “Say what?!” Don’t believe me…just check it out for yourself…Check Yo’self. They do not condone Lazy Bloggin’ at Forbes.com. (Their standards are slightly higher than mine, evidently\:-P)
