Mark Waid is doing a great job writing the new Archie series, and Fiona Staples' art is beyond fantastic. It's only two issues in and I love it.
“He’s one of the most important characters in our stable. And for every person that pushed back, we gained 100 more fans. No doubt, Kevin set the tone for the Archie Comics you’re enjoying today.” That’s Archie comics CEO Jon Goldwater talking to Geek and Sundry about Kevin Keller, Archie’s first openly gay character. Kevin joined the Riverdale gang in 2010. His appearance was praised by the president of GLAAD, earning a Media award nomination fr...

Today is the 46th anniversary of the first manned moon landing. It's been almost 50 years since we first set foot on the moon and safely returned. It is amazing to think about how only six decades after we first invented powered flight we were able to fly 384,000 kilometers and leave humanity's mark on our moon. We can do some pretty amazing things when we put our minds to it.

Ant-Man was even better than expected. Marvel keeps delivering movies that are better than they have any right to be. I think the key to Marvel's movies being so well done is the way they keep putting writers and directors who know comedy behind these movies. It takes someone who knows comedy to deliver action and adventure that doesn't get lost in melodrama.

I'm making notes for some of the rewrites that I need to do on my NaNo novel first draft from a few years ago and the short stories I've been writing over the past couple years. One of the things that has struck me is the interesting difference between science-fiction and fantasy when it comes to "rules."

The rules of the sci-fi stories I have are easy because for the most part they exist in a place that's just a little bit beyond the bounds of modern science. The rules of how the universe work are the same, just with a tiny bit of "what if...?" on the boundary of known science.

Fantasy is different, because the rules of the universe go out the window when you're making up some fantasy magic system. It seems like it should be freeing because it's all just make-believe and you can do whatever you want, but for it to really work in a story you have to make it have internal consistency and not break the universe in which the story is set. It's an interesting challenge to take the completely un-real and build a universe around it to accommodate your story.

John Romita, Jr. is my all-time favorite comic book artist. I have loved his style for decades. I was really disappointed when he moved to DC because I'm still not ready to read any DC comics for a while after the New 52 mess. That said, it's great to read about his experience taking on such an iconic character when he was asked to do Superman.
Artist John Romita Jr. has been a legendary name in comics now for over three decades, providing art for classic and influential runs on comics like Iron Man, Daredevil, Uncanny X-Men, Thor, Amazing Spider-Man, Avengers, and many, many others. Alongside Mark Millar he also co-created Kick-Ass and Hit Girl. After nearly three decades being almost totally synonymous with Marvel Comics, he moved to DC in 2014, starting a run on Superman with writer ...

Working in IT sometimes I get desensitized to how cool modern technology is. Then I get an email from my thermostat on my watch and remember that we live in the future and it's awesome.
