More reviews...

A few reviews ave surfaced since my last review based post. To be fair, the first  two links involve the same reviewer. First with a standard review and then as one part of a three person Podcast. Blake Petit has been a strong supporter of Eric's and my work for a number of years now. Thanks Blake!

In regards to the Podcast: The part discussing Supergirl can be found at 54:25. But it's a good Podcast discussing at length some of my favorite comics work. so if you're a fan of the Giffen Justice League, check it out the entirety!

ComiXtreme

"Wonderful issue. Excellent series. I can’t wait for more."

2 IN 1 SHOWCASE EPISODE 110

"It's a proper Supergirl book."

Pai: Comics Reviews

A tragic accident...

I think I need a new bass. This one can't quite be replaced though. It's been years since I stole it from my cousin. I've almost come to think of it as rightfully mine. The bass for our Mummy toy was inspired by this.



Issue 4 reviews!

The reviews for issue 4 are in. And the opinions about the series continue to be overwhelmingly positive.

Supergirl Comic Box Commentary

"Supergirl:Cosmic Adventures in the 8th Grade #4 continues to be a phenomenal book that appeals to all ages."

Comixology

"There is such love and fun pumped into every issue.
"

Comic Reviews by Walt

"This series just keeps getting better and better."

Superman Homepage

"Oh oh! Secret base... scared heroes....menacing shadow... I'm sold!
"

Talkin Bout Comics

"I really think this series started good and is getting better with each issue.
"

Adventures of Comic Book Girl

"As usual, 5/5."

Daily Scans

"Now who is the most awesome superpet?"

This last one is a podcast. I enjoy listening to these in their entirety. But if you want to skip directly to the review of Supergirl, go to 0:26:35.

The Pull List

"This is really, really good. And this is probably the best issue of the entire series so far."…

Ebooks, and the devices we read them on...

Image
All I seem to hear these days is: "The Kindle! The Kindle! You can read e-books anywhere now!"

Just like the iPod seems to have invented mp3 players for the public, Amazon seems to have invented the electronic book machine. I'm always glad to see existing technology finally accepted by the public, but what is frustrating is seeing these offerings heralded as the first coming. Portable devices that are capable for reading ebooks have existed for years and years. I began to rely heavily on my platform of choice, the Sony Clie, back in 2002. I still have the device, and it still holds up tremendously well. In addition to reading books with it, I can also check my email, listen to music, watch videos, use it as a universal remote, calculator, video camera, regular camera, audio recorder, Gameboy emulator, browse online, ect...

Not to mention it's full color touch screen and it's full keyboard, expandable memory and clamshell design. Plus, unlike the current popular dev…

In stores now...

Issue 4 is now available. This issue features a cat. Yeah, I'm not big on giving out spoliers. But I think this one
is fairly obvious.

So go buy this issue.









Seriously. I need the money. Go. Buy. This. Book.

Interview

Image
A new interview is on online. The website responsible is 4thletter and the interviewer is Esther Inglis-Arkell. This was conducted at WonderCon in a somewhat hectic environment. I'm impressed that the details of the discussion managed to get through the chaos of the event.

Here's an excerpt:

Conclusion: funny, sly, and cute as a button. Since then I’ve been reading the book and it has managed to keep all those descriptors accurate, despite having to pull off several difficult balancing acts.

A rant about babies.

I don't like it when babies touch me. Yeah. I said it. Something negative about babies. Now, I know that most people won't care about what I have to say about babies. Positive or negative. But every now and again I meet someone who thinks their baby is somehow different/special/made of rainbows.

I'm sorry. Your baby is not made of rainbows.

Your baby is a person. And often, a dirty person. A strange baby running up to me and grabbing on me is not unlike an unwashed hobo running up and grabbing me. I've experienced both on numerous occasions, and each instance involves a smelly human being with no regard for personal space and absolutely lacking anything akin to coherency.

So, one day I was sitting in your standard bureaucratic style waiting room. There is, of course, a baby present. The baby is alternating between unmitigated joy and the deepest despair ever felt by any human ever. The baby is bored. The baby wants attention. And the mother is clearly not interested in gi…
