As you can surely tell, I’ve been saving links up for a few weeks on this one. Still, I think there’s some goodness in here amongst me hyping my own stuff around the nets.
In addition to my daily Spinoff Online posts, I also wrote about Prophet, Ted McKeever’s Mondo, Lance Briggs’ Pilot Season entry, Brandon Seifert’s Witch Doctor, Mike Allred about Madman, Andy Suriano about Doc Bizarre, Tim Seeley about the Hack/Slash meets Hatchet annual, Kurtis Wiebe about Peter Panzerfaust and Brian K. Vaughan about his new book Saga!
I also, also wrote a list for Topless Robot called The 5 Best (and 5 Worst) Upgrades In Beast Wars History!
Meanwhile, my pal Josh Wigler got to interview TV’s Ron Swanson for MTV. I am jealous.
My other pal Brett White wrote about event fatigue in regards to Avengers Vs. X-Men for CBR. Like most big comic book events, I will ask my friends who read regular comics how it is and if they like it, I’ll maybe give it a look in a year when it’s in trade.
Dave Rapoza’s Masters of the Universe art on The Autumn Society‘s blog is so good it’s scary.
In case you were wondering, yes, Courtney Love is still batshit crazy and apparently Hole is filled with assholes. Shocker. (via Rolling Stone)
In other Rolling Stone-derived news, Black Sabbath will be recording a record with Rick Rubin. I will buy that.
If anyone wants to contribute to me seeing Roger Waters perform The Wall live this year, please contact my wife. (via Rolling Stone)
I finally got around to reading Image’s Eric Stephenson talk about the company’s blind submission successes. There haven’t been a lot, but I still found it pretty inspiring.
Wired‘s Relic Hunters talked to Richard Molesworth the Doctor Who detective! It’s fascinating how he’s helped get so many lost series’ back from the great beyond.
I really enjoyed Write Place, Write Time‘s look at Joe Hill’s office. I hope to have one like it in the future, though I’m thinking I’ll have a overboard before that these days. I wish I could live in Dan Hipp‘s brain sometimes. His Psycho/Adventure Time mash-up is wonderful.
It’s strange that bands that were relatively new when I was a kid are making their way into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Congrats to the Chili Peppers, Beastie Boys and the Faces. (via Rolling Stone)
I’m super jazzed that Drafthouse Films picked up the documentary Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films. I will see that as soon as possible. (via THR)
