Veterans Stand Forever!

     Hello Everyone, hope all is well.  Yesterday was Veterans Day and there were more than a few comics that depicted the exploits of those that served.  Since WWI ended 100 years ago, you might try reading, Steve Savage, Balloon Buster or Enemy Ace.

     Both comics show both sides of that "War to End All Wars."  Both comics have action and irony as well as chivalry.  Try them both and realize that veterans served throughout the years, just so we would be free to read our precious...comic books.

     Take care and adopt a (war) comic today!

Excelsior...Gone!

     Hello, hope all is well.  In the world of comic books, it is not going well at all.

     Stan Lee, co-creator of the entire Marvel Universe, died yesterday.  I met him on more than a few occasions and will have some short stories for you soon.  But for now, in the Man's own words... "Nuff Said!"

     Take care and adopt a (Stan Lee) comic book today!

Nyancon...Tomorrow!

     Hello everyone, hope all is well.  Stop by and see me at the Nyancon at Lakeland Community College tomorrow in Kirtland from noon-7pm.  I'll be selling and signing all of my super hero/sci-fi novels and would like nothing better than to talk comics with you.

     So stop by and say hello and don't forget to dress up like your favorite character.

     Take care and adopt a (one you can adopt their mode of costume with) comic book today!

Local Super Hero Play

     Hello, hope all is well.  Starting this week (Thursday, Sept 25th -Sun. Sept 30th) Lake Erie College is hosting a four day event of one man plays.  Every night starting at 7:30, there will be a series of ten minute plays in progress, followed by an hour long headliner play. You can check Lake Erie Facebook for more info as well as the opening night reception.

     I'll be performing 3 "sampler" plays, Thurs, Fri, and Sat. In order they will be, "Falstaff, the King and God," "Davey Crockett at the Alamo," and Saturday "Conversations with a Cape!"  This will be an examination of a super hero trying to retire.

     Sunday at 8:30, I will close the festival with an hour long, "Evening with Orson Welles," a play that (like real life) shows Orson mentally reviewing his life before heading to the Merv Griffin show to tape some of the stories of his life.

     Hope to see a lot of comic book fans on Saturday and theatre lovers the other 3 nights.

     Take Care and adopt a comic (any comic) book today!

Batman...Naked?

     Hello everyone, hope all is well.  It seems that in a move to create a more mature sub-brand of DC comic, the company issued a trade paperback last week entitled, "Batman...Damned."

     But in this story, DC was quick to show off Bruce Wayne's naked butt AND naked penis.  Now I admit, I'm one of the biggest Batman fans around and want to see as much of him as I can, but this much?  No thanks.

     Maybe DC should show mature themes without giving us graphic images.  Or since I'm an old time reader, maybe the book for me would be titled, "Batman...(Well I'll be...) Damned."

     Take care and remember to adopt a Batman (one where he's wearing pants) comic book today!

National Batman Day

     Hello everyone, hope all is well.  Tomorrow, Saturday, Sept. 15th, is National Batman day and the local Mentor Barnes and Noble book store is celebrating.

     From 1pm-4pm, I'll be at the store selling and signing copies of my Batman book (My Batman and maybe yours too).  I'll also be offering the rest of my sci-fi/fantasy adventure books for sale and will be showing off interesting items from my Batman collection.

     Free coloring sheets will be given away for the kids as well as other freebies from both myself and the store.  So stop by Barnes and Nobles tomorrow, have yourself a beverage from the cafĂ© and get ready to talk all things Batman!

     Take care and adopt a (Batman) comic book today (and tomorrow)!

Henry Out As Superman!

     Hello everyone, hope all is well.  It seems that the great Henry C. is out as the latest Superman.  Don't know who's idea it is, DC's or Henrys, but what really scares me is that some unidentified spokesman stated that this means there will probably be no new Superman movie for several years.

     This really shoots the heck out of a JLA series (so much for catching up with Marvel) and now I can only think JLA:Infinity Wars, oops, I mean Infinity until we see a Superman flic.  And what about this Batman/Affleck stuff I hear?  Good Grief!

     Take care and read a (Superman) comic book (cause you won't see him in a new movie, that's for sure) today!
