Before I get into calling out the things I’ve written lately, I’d like to talk about a few other things I’m doing. First off, I’m on Twitter @PoppaDietsch. I started it to tell folks about my new dad blog called Pop Poppa, which you should also check out. Finally, I got back to posting on my Tumblr blog. Fun stuff.
I talked a lot about being busy before the con. Here’s the proof. I talked with Top Cow’s Matt Hawkins and Filip Sablik about Pilot Season, Joe Keatinge and Frank Cho about Brutal, Tony Lee about an upcoming MacGyver comic, Josh Fialkov about Pilot Season: The Test, Alan McElroy about Pilot Season: Anonymous and Landry Walker about Danger Club.
My buddy Sean T Collins talks about his nightly Daddy Dance Party (something I can relate to) and the awesomeness of James Brown.
Sean also has a Spider-Man story that will be out in October. I will actually be finding a comic shop and purchasing this comic, that’s saying a lot.
Speaking of my friends writing comics, another pal Alex Segura is writing Archie Meets KISS. I can’t tell you how awesome this is to me. Congrats! (via CBR)
My favorite bit of news out of SDCC is that Fantagraphics will be doing creator-specific reprints of the EC masters. Amazing. (via Comics Reporter)
I’m also really excited about the guys behind the Crank movies and Gamer working on the next Ghost Rider flick. Actually, I don’t know if I’ve been this excited about a comic-based movie in a long time, that’s a winning combination. (via Wired)
George Harrison’s final album Brainwashed was pretty revelatory to me when it came out, so I’m really interested to see Martin Scorsese’s documentary on the former Beatle. (via Rolling Stone)
