AiT fave Tom Beland has a great interview up at Comic Book Resources:
"Next Wednesday sees the release of True Story Swear to God
#14, which tells a much more serious story than is usually found in the series. In addition, Beland finds himself playing in the Marvel Comics sand box later this year in the form of a new Spider-Man story."

When we looked back at the whole year's worth of writings and saw the highs and lows and the ultimate shit-craziness when they actually won the whole thing, we were pleasantly surprised at how much fun it was to read and that it really worked as a collected volume. It's a sort of "real time" journal of what it was like to be a Sox fan during that season, but it's a very twisted take. It’s an idea that wouldn’t have gone anywhere unless Larry Young at AIT took a chance on it. I’m happy that the world’s coolest publisher is also a die-hard Red Sox fan.
A new Loose Cannon
is up, this time detailing my thoughts on the next Spider-Man.
