The Arizona Republic,
on its front page story about my beloved Boston Red Sox beating the New York Yankees in the playoffs for the first time ever, uses as its lead sentence: "On a day when they should have been clamoring for a sneak peak at 1,000 Steps to World Domination,
graphic-novel fans at Samurai Comics jawed instead about David Ortiz's .500 batting average."
Rob Osborne's 1,000 Steps to World Domination
is available everywhere.
"Here we may reign secure; and, in my choice, to reign is worth ambition, though in Hell: better to reign in Hell than serve in Heaven."
artist on "The Camera" (the third story in December's Proof of Concept
) doodled a cool little Abraham Lincoln using GE's Imagination at Work

I would even recommend it to comic fans who have no intention of publishing their own books, because 1) who knows, maybe it'll spark some interest, and 2) maybe it'll give them a little more empathy towards the people who actually have to work to provide them with a little entertainment. Anyway, file this with Scott McCloud's Understanding Comics
and Reinventing Comics, as well as Will Eisner's Comics and Sequential Art
... it's a nice supplement to the material presented in those highly-regarded volumes."
has a review of Badlands,
about the guy who killed Kennedy.
...and the Red Sox... my holy Red Sox are going to lose the ALCS to the Yankees, and that's OK. The Sox are going to make them pay in the Captain Ahab/Khan stylee. The hated Yankees may get to go to the World Series, but they'll do it without Spock. The Sox'll make them pay.
"...to the last I grapple with thee; from hell's heart I stab at thee; for hate's sake I spit my last breath at thee."
