    Good Morning: Help.

    First, this is directed at those of you who use Macs. The rest of you can talk amongst yourselves, your friendly but unhelpful suggestions will do me no good. So: it appears my connection problem was/is largely due to MSN’s providing. Fine. I’m moving to another house in a week, I’ll just start over with [...]

    At the Crossroads

    I’m at the Apple store. They’ve got sweet deals on pre-owned G-4s. Do I do it? Do I join the 21st Century at last? Do I make working in Photoshop much easier than I’ve ever had it? Stay tuned, but remember….. I’m a wuss!

    Off the Junk, High on Life

    Day 6 of No Internet Connectivity: -More work getting done -Excercised frequently with extra time; ate more vegetables -Spent quality time with family, taught child words; carved canoe from tree we felled together -Channeled writing into future lucrative projects -Learned foreign language, musical instrument Yes, just like when I kicked TV because I didn’t want [...]

    Still Sucking Wind

    Yep, I’m still gasping for air like that fish at the end of that old Faith No More video. I want Internet Connection and I Can’t Haave It… I’m going to take this out on some alternative cartoonists at that Comic Rap Battle thingy Saturday. Maybe Mike or Steve can keep filling in for me [...]

    Hi, my name is Mike– and I’ll be your substitute blogger today….

    Hey there, everyone– Mike Wieringo here in for our beloved MYSTIFYIN’ ONE. Parker called me today to tell me that he’s been having lots of very frustrating problems with getting connected to the internet recently, which is why we haven’t been seeing anything from him since Friday. I HAD been wondering what was up with [...]

    End O’ The Week Wrap Up

    Yes, that’s my character Van Meach, in Lego form in case you were wondering. That’s only the tip of the iceberg, you need to see the whole gallery of David Oakes, who legofies everything comics in his spare time. David is also helping me with research (re: doing it for me) on Interman 2, which [...]

    Hollywood Loves Comics; Comics Hates Kids

    That excellent piece from The Hollywood Reporter on comics is now online. This may be the only time outside of email interviews that I’ve ever been quoted with deadly accuracy. And they talk about Eric Powell’s The Goon and Digglejock’s (they’re just one guy now, I saw it myself in San Diego) The Losers, worthy [...]

    But they’re Cous-ins… Identical cousins all the way…

    Thanks to pal Jesse McCann I now have a picture of that towering display that kept me and Lieber separate and distinct all through Comicon. It’s so simple, yet so imposing. That thing can hold posters and books, and still contain bagels and art supplies. And “thanks” to Jeff Mason for unearthing this creepy link [...]

    What Really Happened

    So I think my exile from the internet is over, and I’ve learned a valuable lesson about sharing my blogger login and password. The shocking thing about watching my site get hijacked wasn’t seeing Lieber’s family replace my own, but having my cat Burma’s picture replaced by Steve’s cat Stinky. That was like walking into [...]

    Please excuse Parker

    His MSN interweb connection is down, which is making it difficult for him to post the con report. He has asked me, Steve Lieber, to post this on his blog, so that everyone would understand that he’s not being lazy. We know that you are all feeling impatient, so here is a picture of Tom [...]

    Never Again!! AGHH!!

    Even with Dreamweaver and writing ahead of time, these San Diego reports take fordamnever!!! We’ll post it today, but you may be looking at the last one of these Comicon journals from us. Too much work, no pay! Oh sure, we get “ha, ha, good one” posted on message boards, maybe even a “LOL” thrown [...]
