THE NIGHTMARE FACTORY has been awarded the 2008 International Horror Guild Award for “Best Illustrated Narrative”. Heidi has more on The Beat. Congratulations to Stuart, Colleen, Michael, Ted, Ben, Heidi and Eric. We just released VOLUME TWO which is an even better package of these elegantly adapted, disturbingly frightening tales. And thanks to author Thomas […]
I’ve had a Twitter account for a while now… but I’ve only really been able to get into things recently. Come follow me, won’t you?
We shameless, godless liberals in the comics industry have a community for supporting Barack Obama. I haven’t unlocked the full, true use yet. But I like using the avatar on my Facebook page. And the mug I just ordered from their Zazzle store looks nice. Check it out.
A new interview to support THE JOKER’S ASYLUM: SCARECROW is up on the one and only Newsarama, old friends and supporters of mine from way, way back. Can’t wait for this book to drop. On sale everywhere July 23rd. It has been a while, I think, since I’ve been on Newsarama. Feels good being back […]
I was (and remain) pissed off that the late night hosts went back to work before the WGA strike ended. These guys are Guild members who were clearly not ad-libbing. If Jay, Conan, Jon and Stephen composed their thoughts seconds before tape rolled, I maintain they wrote something… I also didn’t appreciate what was a […]
Well, this strike is just about over. I went into this membership meeting anxious, but also recalcitrant. I only received the summarized points of of the new agreement an hour or so before the meeting. So, fairly pissed off, I bombed down to Times Square and the took my seat in the Crowne Plaza Hotel […]
Bookslut has a list and THE NIGHTMARE FACTORY is on it. Hey… somebody should put together a VOLUME 2 of that stuff. Hmmm… wonder if they will… :)
I’m not holding my breath. That DGA deal was a joke. Must have been. But I’m keeping an open mind this time. I’ve honestly been holding off posting anything about the supposed ‘breakthroughs’ we’ve been hearing about. My Strike Captain has been wonderfully sobering in keeping us rank and file up to date and undaunted. […]
I am wiped out, having sat nestled and sustainedly ‘altered’ to best achieve that out-of-focus sort of attention necessary to ingesting cable news political coverage these days. Obama and Hilary are, essentially, tied in the pledged delegate count. Momentum almost totally belongs to Barack Obama and Clinton is, basically, playing the trap defense to try […]
We were supposed to rally in front of the Time Warner Center in Columbus Circle (you’ll always be the NY Coliseum to me, baby girl). A sign of good faith as bargaining resumes between leadership and management? We shall see…
I forgot to post mention of my favorite movie(s) of 2007. My screener stack runneth over and, since it looks like we WGAians nominated “Michael Clayton”, I’ll be getting a DVD of this shortly. But, of the movies I’ve seen, “There Will Be Blood” takes my best picture award. Daniel Day Lewis glows brighter than […]
United Hollywood has the lowdown on the recently struck deal between the DGA and the AMPTP, dissecting all the pros and cons as they see it. Very useful and illuminating. Working Life has their own analysis (which I’m going to digest later today). I agree with John Rogers, honestly. This is a deal that seems […]
