Lanigan is Back!

     Hello everyone, hope all is well.  Today I'm stepping aside from comics to tell you that John Lanigan, icon of Cleveland radio, has finally got his memoirs out from Greys Publishing.

     It is a great book that covers over 50 years in the radio business and has many funny stories and fateful ways that a young 18 year old broke into the field and stayed there until he retired.  Over 50 years of tales from this Cleveland icon and John covers all of them.  Yes, especially the 25 years on the Prize movie on our own Channel 43!

     I've met John a couple of times in the past and believe me, the book even captures the way he speaks, now THAT is a great book!

     Don't forget, Christmas is right around the corner, so check out your nearest Barnes and Noble to pick up this enjoyable life story of a great guy who spent most of his working life in Cleveland, Ohio!

     Take care and adopt a (Lanigan )book today!

Bendis at DC

     Hello Everyone, hope all is well.  I guess it is now official, Brian Michael Bendis, the one-time Cleveland, Ohio writer that took Marvel by storm has signed an exclusive with DC Comics.

     According to his press release, Brian made a comment that jokingly amounted to, "Now I can go over and mess DC up."

     Take care and adopt a (Bendis) comic book today!

Cosplay, Ashtabula

     Hi everyone, hope all is well.  This Saturday, November 4th and 5th, (yes, a 2 day show) I'll be a guest at the N.E. Geek Fest at the Ashtabula mall.

     The second day (Sun) from Noon to 12:30, I'll be performing a short Orson Welles show concerning only the War of the Worlds radio broadcast due to the close proximity to the recently passed Halloween.  My recent "Orson vs. Alfred" book will also be on sale

     Also, Bystander Group LLC, the publishing group which I write for, has published TWO new, Bystander Adventure Series, sci-fi paperback books that I have just completed over the summer.  Stop by and get a copy and talk while I autograph them. 

     Hope to see you!

     Take care and adopt a Bystander (one of mine hopefully) Adventure book today (or Saturday and Sunday)!

Metal!

     Hi everyone, hope all is well.  Lately, DC Comics has been putting out a comic called "Metal" and another called "Forged."  I may have to wait for the trade, since some are pretty good, some not so, but overall, I'm puzzled with what has happened so far.  Maybe I missed a few issues.

     But right now, anyone reading this story has had their comic reading skills "Forged" alright...in fire.

     Take care and adopt a (Metal Men preferably) comic book today!

Good Grief, Fire

     Hello everyone, hope all is well.  The giant fire blazing out of control in California has taken Charles Schultz's house.  His wife is fine, but I wonder, Charles had an office, skating rink and diner nearby.  I wonder if any Charlie Brown important documents have been destroyed. 

     Good Grief, no record of Snoopy?  My stomach hurts.

     Take care and adopt a (Peanuts) comic book today!

Wolverine and Swamp Thing Crying!

     Hello everyone, hope all is well.  Just last week, Len Wein, long time comic creator and writer passed away.  He created Swamp Thing with artist Bernie Wrightson, who also passed earlier this year, and with a couple others created Wolverine, the seminal anti-hero of the 70s.

     Len had done so many things in his life it is too much to list, but I did meet him a few times and we enjoyed talking about our mutual love of Batman.  Read Len's "Untold Legends of Batman," You won't be sorry.

     His good friend Marv Wolfman, who came into the comic field at the same time no doubt is still in mourning.  I think every person who has read a Wein comic is also.

     Take care and adopt a (Len Wein) comic today!
