LINKAGE: Sound on Sight | Terrence Sage Reviews Teen Titans #8

So my young geeky pal Terrence Sage is coming of age right before my eyes.  He’s a senior in high school this year (he and I, along with a handful of other geeky dudes, met via Twitter a few years back during his sophomore year).  He’s a highly enthusiastic comics and geek pop culture-loving young man who’s now dipped his toe into the comics journalism pool that I’ve swam in for about as long as we’ve known each other.  He’s just published his first article, a review of DC Comic’s Teen Titans #8 and I gotta say young fella’s debut is … Continue reading LINKAGE: Sound on Sight | Terrence Sage Reviews Teen Titans #8

1st Issue Fetish + Linkage: Robot 6 FURIOUS Interview with Bryan J.L. Glass & Victor Santos

Dark Horse Comics has been amping up things as one of the go-to independent publishers for creator-owned properties. I know it’s in no small part due to Scott Allie’s appointment as Editor-in-Chief (whom I’ve met through a friend who happens to be DHC’s Director of Marketing). Allie’s a sharp guy and a brilliant editor and DHC has really been benefitting from his leadership. This one looks to be pretty interesting. Furious #1 will be released January 29, 2014. Clicky the link to check out the interview with the creators.  LINKAGE: Comic Book Resources’ Robot 6 Blog Continue reading 1st Issue Fetish + Linkage: Robot 6 FURIOUS Interview with Bryan J.L.

Artwork by Andrew C. Robinson Somewhere back in my 2011 journalism archives is an in-depth interview I did with Top Cow’s Nelson Blake II, the artist of The 7th Sword.
