March 2008 Solicits are up!

Guaranteed to be one of the most beautiful comics you've ever read...

Written by C.B. CEBULSKI
Pencils by JOÃO LEMOS
The critically-acclaimed line of Marvel Fairy Tales continues with a coming-of-age tale inspired by the timeless classic Peter Pan! When Wanda and Pietro are swept away to Neverland by the boy who never grows up, they find themselves pulled into a situation beyond their wildest dreams. However, as fairies and lost boys become locked in battle with a vicious pirate captain and his crew, the two children must accept that sometimes fantasy is not always an escape from reality. See Captain America, Iron Man, Thor and the rest of the Avengers as you’ve never seen them before!

Guilty Pleasure Movies

So after a nice holiday party on Saturday afternoon, I've spent the rest of the weekend busting my ass, working on a script rewrite and two short stories that I want to get done before the holidays. I decided to take a short break to check NY1 to see what the report on all this snow and ice was. I turn on the TV and TBS comes up.... with Meet Joe Black playing. Shit, now I've just got to watch because Meet Joe Black is one of those shitty movies that I just love for some reason and once it's on I can't turn it off. I can't explain it, it's just a guilty pleasure. And while I'm on the subject, I'll just embarrass myself some more by telling you some of the other movies that I can't turn away from if they're on... Serendipity, The Replacements and Notting Hill. These are movies I will never buy and own, but keep me magically glued to the tube, as ashamed as I am to admit that.

Cool Mini-Comics

I posted earlier in the week about some good comics I've read recently, but this weekend I caught up on a couple mini-comics that I couldn't recommend more highly...

I've been reading Jacob Chabot's The Mighty Skullboy Army for years now and fell in love with it from day one. Jacob is an AMAZING talent and makes me laugh out loud with every new issue he puts out. I just picked up issues 8 and 9 at the New York Anime Fest last weekend and he just gets better with every issue. He also recently put out a sketchbook that's equally impressive. You can check out all his work and buy the mini-comics at his website

I also came across Monica Gallagher's Boobage at Jim Hanley's Universe and was really impressed. It's an autobiographical story about the ups and down of her having grown up with small breasts. And while it's not a situation I can personally relate to, Monica tells it in such an honest and open way with such a witty and poignant style that you can't help but feel what she felt as you turn the pages. While I was unfamiliar with her work before, I'm now a fan and just tracked down her other comics. Please be sure to check out her site
