Happy Mother’s Day to my mom and to all moms, but especially those who ignored the “experts” who said that we should be reading “real” books and not “junk” like comic books. Thank you for helping us discover a four-color world with superpowers, secret identities, and secret origins.

You taught us how to tie our shoes, eat with our mouths closed, and play nice with others, but you shared something far more important.

You gave us the gift of imagination. You showed us that there was a world beyond our bedroom walls that featured heroes who battled evil and fought for justice. Heroes willing to sacrifice everything for others. Truly super heroes.

We didn’t know it then, but looking back now, it’s easy to see now that you were our personal superheroes. You are the most powerful hero in our universe because you gave us life and taught us how to live it.

To the hero moms who are still our secret guardians and those who continue protecting us from an alternate universe, thank you. Sorry it took so long for us to notice the cape.

Thank you, mom. Happy Mother’s Day.

An interesting interview about having a career as a comic book artist. Featuring my old friend Matt Haley, who illustrated the cover to my first book "People & Poses."
So many of today's popular movies began humbly on the printed page--not in novels, but in comic books. There's a distinct appeal to the illustrated format's ability to tell both large, complex stories without compromising the intimacy of the narrative. And capturing those moments requires a skilled illustrator. What it's like to face the blank page every day?

People at work often ask for reading recommendations, so I detailed a list of graphic novels and TPBs. 

What do you think? Is there anything that you think I missed? 

Do me a favor and post a response on the actual blog. Let me know what you think I missed or if you agree with my list.

Please note, I only included non-superhero titles for newbies. If you'd like to see a superhero list, leave a comment on the blog.
