Post Signing Blues and Mickey Mouse

     Hi everyone, hope all is well.  I'm kind of bushed myself from signing copies of my new Kennedy assassination novel, "The Camelot Memo" all weekend.  but now that the autographs are over, I've been trying to read this Mickey Mouse comic book (Dell Comics #387, May, 1952, "Mickey in High Tibet") ever since but find Thanksgiving plans are getting in the way.  But I'm sure I'll be talking to everyone before the big turkey (but have a good holiday if I don't) day.  THEN I'll read the Mickey comic.

     Take care and adopt a comic book today.  And make sure you make time to read it.

Kennedy in Comics and First Signing

     Hi everyone, hope all is well.  Since the 50th anniversary of JFK's murder is almost upon us, I thought about one of the most ironic appearances by our late President within the pages of my beloved hobby...comics

     In Action Comics, #319, Feb. 1964, Kennedy disguised himself like Clark Kent allowing Superman and Clark to appear at the same place, dispelling rumors of Superman's secret identity.  Supposedly in real life, the President was thrilled with his appearance.  But the Feb. 1964 issue came out in December of 1963, mere weeks after the assassination.  Both the family and the White House were  contacted and thought it fine to continue the appearance that the late President was looking forward to.  I cover more of this subject on my current issue of my E-Comics Gazette website.

     Also, my new fiction/political thriller/conspiracy novel (The Camelot Memo) comes out officially (advance copies with the rare, very limited different cover) tomorrow and my first local signing will be at Comic Heaven on Robinhood Drive in Willoughby.  I'll be there from 6-8pm.  The 270 page novel is $20.00 dollars.  Hope to see you there for a chat about comics, writing, books and just about anything else that might come up.

Kennedy Book Signing

     Hi everyone, hope all is well.  With the 50th anniversary of President Kennedy's murder upon us, my new book, "The Camelot Memo" is making it's debut.

     The book is a fictional novel, one possible account of how his murder might have happened and how it tied in with Watergate, or would that be the other way around?  As the book cover states, "What did Nixon know about JFK's assassination?  What did JFK predict about Watergate?"  Read and decipher the Camelot Memo and you'll find out the secret of this and other mysteries.

     I'll be signing copies at Comic Heaven on Robinhood Drive, Thursday, Nov. 21st from 6-8pm.  On Friday, November 22nd (the actual 50th anniversary of the tragic event) I'll be at the Great Lakes Mall outside Comics and Friends (next to Macy's) from 6:30-9pm.  Saturday, Nov. 23rd, I'll be at the Mentor Atlas Theater from Noon-4pm.  I understand they'll be playing the Kennedy inspired film, "Parkland" in the lobby to tie in with my signing. 

     So stop by and chat, pick up a book (special advance copy with limited cover) before it hits the stores and internet with a different cover.  And maybe, just maybe, you'll uncover the meaning of, "The Camelot Memo."

     Take care and adopt a comic book today.  PS: This book is a regular fictional novel, not a comic book, but since I've written so many comics in the past, I'm appearing at some comic shops.

More on DC Move

     Hi everyone, hope all is well.  I was thinking about my recent blog concerning DC Comics moving their offices to L.A.  Well the move won't take place until 2015, but I was thinking that they had better be careful.  You see, I've moved three times in my life and each time I lost some comics from my collection in the process.  You can just imagine if DC lost their comics in the move...they'd go out of business.

     Take care and adopt a comic book (but don't move it far distances) today.

My Brother and My Comics

     Hi everyone, hope all is well.  Today I've got to tell you that I've been busy with a mini-family reunion the last few days.  I was supposes to go see my father over the weekend but could not make it.  Instead, my brother and my sister and I got together for the first time in 15 years.

     Of course my brother stayed over my house and he piled plenty of comics on his lap from my collection every night.  The problem was, that he and I gabbed so much and took in so much football and did so much shopping that we never got a chance to read a single comic!  With two such comic book fanatics in the same house and not one comic read between us.  Go figure.

     Take care and adopt a comic book today.

DC Moving?

     Hi everyone, hope all is well.  Well I recently heard that DC Comics is moving its entire organization to Los Angeles from New York.  That sure will uproot a lot of editors and staffers who find the Big Apple hard to get around a car and L.A hard to get around without.

     In a way, Marvel's already out there since the home of Spiderman is owned by Disney located in California, so maybe DC thinks that the land of movies holds out hope, since the company has a rough history with any flic not named Batman.

     Oh well, DC used to say back in the 1970's, that they're on the move.  Now they are...literally.

     Take care and adopt a (non-moving, since one on the go would be difficult to read) comic book today.
