The Grand Tour

Welcome back!!! Google has been kind enough to give me all of this space to work with, I'm very grateful to them. It's almost too much space, but it's free (except for giving them my personal information to do who knows what with) so why should I complain? Let's take a quick tour of the place.

First, you'll notice the ginormous bookcase behind me. I do have the books to fill it. Seriously, I'm mad with books. I've been collecting DC's Absolute Editions; they take up a bunch of space, but they are beautiful pieces of art. Yes, Marvel, I haven't forgotten you. Remember, I have some of your nice omnibuses (omnibusi? omnibuseses? Spell check is okay with omnibuses, I'm going with that): Hawkeye by Fraction and Aja, Guardians of the Galaxy by Bendis, and Spider-Man by McFarlane. What's that Image? Yes, yes, yes I have your wonderful collections as well: Deadly Class by Remender & Craig, East of West by Hickman & Dragotta, and Saga by Vaughan & Staples (have I named dropped enough?).

To the right, under links, is my artist/friend/co-creator's website, the amazing Murad Abu-Rayyan. Check out his site and enjoy the phenomenal pages he's created from my resplendent writing. Here's a sample:

Go ahead and click on his link to see more. I'll wait...

Amazing, right? I'm telling you he brings something to the table that resembles genius. If we're successful it will be because of his artwork (and my writing, the guy can barely spell). By the way, he gave me that Miles Davis painting. It's mine, you can't have it. And he can't have it back either.

The next name is my dear friend, Frank: comic collector, movie buff, and all around good guy. He updates his blog regularly, covering pop culture, movies, collectables, and more (wow, that's a lot of Doc Savage stuff). He also writes the movie information sheets for the Paramount Theater's summer movie festival. Check him out.

I've listed a couple of other blogs and websites I enjoy reading. More will follow.

Also on the right of the page are the lists of books and graphic novels that have spun the wheels of my brain towards bliss and emotional satisfaction. They have inspired me, made me laugh, cry, scream, and wish I could write as well as they do. I aspire to their greatness. I will update these lists and soon I'll add some writing books that have helped me shape my craft.

Finally, down at the bottom, is very little about me.

Again, let me reiterate I am no expert (on anything), but I want to share what does and doesn't work for me and I hope that it helps you if you're just starting out. Or, if you've been doing this as long as I have you'll recognize my genius and wonder why I'm not published (kidding). I just want to have fun and get the creative notions out of my head and onto paper. It's cathartic to let it all pour out into the world, even if no one else reads it (oh, why won't they read it?).
