There are some folks who have been very kind to mention this blog on their sites, and since I’m fans of them all, I want to share some links with you (here, at least until our webmaster sets up a links sidebar for me. It’s not just my being polite; it’s that this will hopefully lead you to some work (and some new voices) you may enjoy.
First up, Thom Zahler, creator of the superhero sitcom comic LOVE AND CAPES, blogs (and links to his work) here. LOVE AND CAPES is really, genuinely warm and clever, and if you ever liked any of the Wally West/Linda Park interactions in my FLASH stories, you may enjoy his comic. I do.
Another infotacular spot is the Kung Fu Monkey blog run by my pal John Rogers, familiar to comics fans as the creator of Jaime Reyes, the Blue Beetle, and familiar to TV watchers as the creator of the new TNT show Leverage, which I cannot recommend highly enough. I’ve been posting my Thursday “comics craft” essays to John’s blog for a while now, but John’s thousand-or-so posts that, oh, don’t involve me are wildly interesting and frequently hilarious rants about everything in the world from how to run a TV show to why he would trade a thousand puppies for one Kindle to why he wants to deservedly take a bat to many politicians.
EDITED TO ADD THAT I’M A MORON: in my excitement in finally figuring out how to use the “Add A Link” button, I forgot to mention that BOOM!’s own star writer Michael Alan Nelson also blogs regularly, and insightfully, on Kung Fu Monkey. D’oh. Sorry, Mike!
Finally, writer/artist/bon vivant Jimmy Palmiotti, one of the funniest and most charming guys in comics ever, blogs regularly on
Hateara ma Newarama. Find Jimmy here.
And this has nothing to do with me at all, but I love this site that interviews the voice actors of the 1960s Spider-Man cartoon show. Did you know the guy who voiced Peter Parker also voiced Rudolph’s pal Hermie, the elf who wanted to be a dentist? Man, I could listen to that guy all day…
…as well as this guy: The Secret Video Diary of Adam West.
