“Aliens on Ice” could be the single greatest show I’ll never get to see

November 30th, 2011 · No Comments

“Evil Dead: The Musical” was awesome. I’ve seen it and can speak to that fact with some degree of knowledge and experience. I have not seen “Aliens on Ice,” but I’m fairly certain it’s also awesome. After all, it’s “Aliens”… on ice. Sadly, I didn’t happen to be in Austin, TX, on the weekend of […]

New Comics Day: What I’m reading this week (November 30, 2011)

November 30th, 2011 · No Comments

It’s a short list these week, but packed with a lot of series I really like — as opposed to comics that simply caught my eye. Here’s what I’m reading from this week’s batch: ARCHIE #627 (ARCHIE MEETS KISS PT 1) – Alex Segura sold me on this one during New York Comic Con, and […]

I recently received a message on Facebook from someone asking me about the Calvin & Hobbes art I once owned. As you might expect, the message caused me some confusion, as I’ve never owned any of Bill Watterson’s art (but certainly would love to change that, given the chance).

Why “The Spectre” could make a great TV series

November 29th, 2011 · No Comments

Last week’s “Adapt This” column for IFC didn’t go up until Monday due to some holiday miscommunication, but it’s available now for your reading pleasure.
