... and just like that, I'm back stateside. Didja miss me? Probably not, considering plenty of stuff with my name on it still managed to appear, as if by magic, while I was gone.
Chief among these things is the first four installments of "Duet on Solo", the long awaited third collaboration between myself and Sean Witzke. This time we went all out with a 12-part series re-examining DC Comics' 2004-06 anthology comic Solo, which is probably the closest superhero comics have come to art for art's sake since I've been alive. As always, Witzke brings the knowledge and the funny, and I kinda dither around trying to describe the art. Tim Sale, Richard Corben, Paul Pope, Howard Chaykin! Read up!
There's also TWO new episodes of Comic Books Are Burning In Hell, the internet's only podcast about comics, for your listening delectation. I only appear on the first of these (episode four), but the boyz did just fine holding things down without me in their Garth Ennis/Dark Knight spectacular, I think. Go lend an ear.
