Welcome to my blog … can you believe it?

It was suggested to me that writing a blog would be a good idea. So here I am. 

It occurs to me while I’m sitting here writing this in the middle of the night that I’m an absolute novice at this. There is no plans to make this a personal blog, although I suspect that tons of personal junk will find its way into this blog.

The goal here is to talk about comics. Well, not really the books themselves or the characters. And not really news or recent developments, but about the stories behind the making of the comics during my years in the business, from Fantagraphics Books (editing Amazing Heroes) to Sunrise Distribution, to Malibu Comics, to Marvel Comics, to DoggWorks, to Humanoids Publishing. Sort of a combination of nostalgia and the story-behind-the-story. 

And just to whet your whistle … here is the color artwork from the Malibu Christmas card after the launch of the Ultraverse in June 1993. I can name all the books these characters appeared in, but I can’t name all the characters.

Wanna take a shot at it, feel free.1171265175_avyw5q8opv1

NEXT: Isn’t calling them “funny books” disrespectful ???
