    Heroes Con Triumphant

    I don’t know what I like best about this picture: the excellent Adam Hughes art, the fact that Supergirl is showing it to bidders, or that Dr. Doom is nearby raving about the whole thing. The neatest thing is that the piece went for over $4000 smackers! I didn’t get to go to one of [...]

    Radio Interview: NOW FREE

    It looks like the Word Balloon show has decided to make the interviews free for a while, so follow this LINK and listen to a few. But mainly mine. John Siuntres does a terrific job with keeping the thing in a cohesive narrative, you’d think we planned where the discussion was going to go. That’s [...]

    “Can a Guy In a Cape Just Hit Somebody?”

    John Siuntres of Sporting News Radio has created a new comics show called Word Balloon, and he recently interviewed me. I just babble on and on, but you might want to listen to the Brian Azzarello or Marc Andreyko interviews. I don’t know much about Bitpasses and such, but it costs money. You can hear [...]

    Who’s House? GOOM’S HOUSE.

    Hey, there’s another good review of Marvel Adventures Spider-Man #4 that’s up. I was afraid no one would pay attention to the Adventures books, assuming they’re the “baby books”, but it seems word is getting out and we’re getting noticed. Sean McKeever will take it from there ably on Spider-Man, and I’ll be Puppet-Mastering the [...]

    …And Some Are By Tom Spurgeon, About Jim Ottaviani

    SPURGEON: Is the fact that men like Marsh were larger than life figures and semi-bullshitters a part of that decision? Does the fact that much of the literature of the time was fanciful play a part? OTTAVIANI: Oh sure. I wouldn’t say bullshitters, though: Cope and Marsh were the real thing and true experts in [...]

    Not All Interviews Are With Me…

    Some are with Tom Spurgeon. So it’s the personal memories that dominate when I think of working at the Journal. Hanging out on the back porch smoking and complaining about our low pay. The poker games at the moldy house in Ballard. Eric Reynolds and I posing as comic shop employees to sneak into a [...]

    End of the Week Purge

    I need to thank young Ethan Robinson for waiting half a school year to get his Flat Stanley pictures from me. After I lost Stanley several times, his dad found an uncolored FS image online, and the kid stayed up past his bedtime to color it again so it could be sent to me. Me [...]

    GOOM Reviewed

    Very happy today, there’s a review to kill for over at Silver Bullet Comics for Marvel Adventures Spider-Man #4. I’m glad people are enjoying that issue, it was equally a blast to write. And a lot of hard work on Patrick Scherberger’s aching hand.

    Man, I Could Go For Some…


    Mercury Studio just got 63% more dopetastic yesterday. Last week, Matthew Clark and I got sick of our D-Link router failing repeatedly, so we went to the Mac store and bought a Airport Express and a Netgear Switch so that the warm waves of the internet would once again broadcast through our room. A day [...]

    Thanks Entertainment Weekly!

    Thanks to Matthew Clark, I finally saw the nice mention for my story in Four Letter Worlds. Cool.

    Get Your GOOM On

    While at your local comics shop today, do me a solid and pick up MARVEL ADVENTURES SPIDER-MAN #4 please. Story by me, super-fly art by Patrick Scherberger. Oh, I know you think it’s going to be for wittle bitty kids, but you would be wrong. It’s for you: at least stand there and read the [...]
