In the beginning

It’s been a while since I did a theme week. Frankly, I’m tired of politics and general rambling. So, I think it’s high time to bring another one to the blog. Recent events are stirring my creative juices (more on that in Friday’s post). Therefore, without further ado, I present “Creative Week”. The first installment… Read more »

Another dumb idea of mine

Ugh. I have to say it again. These comic books are going to be the end of me. It goes well beyond simply being older, too. It’s all about presentation and storage. Which leads, naturally, to another dumb idea of mine. You shouldn’t need much of a backstory. By now, you know I am a… Read more »

Admittedly, I’ve had to “cross over” an age group now and then (giving out young boy bags to older boys), but… Read more »

The wonder years

Which can also be read as “I wonder how he got to be like that”. In the first installment of my series of self-reflective posts about how I’ve led an interesting life after all, we begin at the beginning. It’s perfect! I’ve always been good at problem solving. My personality is built on logic and… Read more »

Battles in outer space

Or, more precisely, out of space. As I recently mentioned, I’ve given up on trying to read via an e-reader (in my case, a Kindle). That leaves me in an untenable position, however. Because, I don’t just like paperbacks (and hardcovers), but I like comics. More to the point, I like that comics are now reprinted… Read more »
