No comics, no content

Usually, I don’t have comics to review because I can’t get to my shop to buy them. This week, I didn’t have anything to buy. At all. This is depressing because I love comics, but it’s positive because it means I don’t have spend money. I didn’t buy Civil War…

Work kills, links feed … oh, and something about artists

Wow, work just came out of nowhere and bit me in the arse. Bastard. How am I supposed to blog if I have to earn a living? So, first some linkblogging, then some thoughts on artists. Scott at Polite Dissent is back [EDIT: not completely]. Seems there was a problem…

Whose Side Am I On? I’m On The Outside, Looking In …

My shopping list for the week: ................................... NOTHING! Damn. And it’s not even a skip week. So, what is there this week that I COULD buy? I could get the third Gotham Central trade, if I didn’t already have all the issues of a series that has been cancelled, and…

Still without books, so here are some links

Lots of film-related comic book news at Empire. I like Favreau, but I’m not sure he has the visual styling to bring Iron Man successfully to life. And, please, please, not Vince Vaughan for Tony Stark. I like Vaughan, but he is not Iron Man. I hadn’t heard about Edgar…

Considering Comic Book News Sites

Apropos of nothing in particular, I was thinking about websites devoted to comic book news. Isn’t the internet great? What did fans do before it was invented? It got me thinking about the variety and the ones I go to first and read. CBR – Comic Book Resources – is…

So. Tired. Must. Blog.

I’m so exhausted after moving home this weekend, I can barely type. With this in mind, I shall do a little gentle weblogging by deploying some well-chosen links. Newsarama has a nice intro to The Eternals [EDIT: dead link] in preparation for the new mini-series from Neil Gaiman and John Romita…

Apparently, my jobs wants me to do WORK …

I need to read the small print but it appears that my employers require me to work for my salary. Outrageous. In lieu of a post containing my unfettered ramblings, I thought I’d rely on the link-apalooza post to keep me regular, as it were … Is this the new…

Interactive Title: Select Your Own!

Not writing for a while didn't mean not reading for a while; I just didn't have time to say anything about the books I read, unfortunately. There were things that stayed in my head after reading them, which is always a good sign. Even though these will be out of…

Now, I want YOUR opinions…

Having accepted the Blogaround challenge (in this post) and then reading that Evan very kindly said nice things about me in this post, after I emailed & blogged some constructive criticism of his site after he asked for opinion of his site, and saw that he got some good criticism…

Blogaround challenge

(Am I the only one to think of the television programme Runaround when I say the word 'blogaround' in my head, or is that too British-specific a reference?) As suggested by Laura, according to her rules, I take … The Blogaround Challenge: Love Manga [EDIT: dead link] This is a…
