2020’s Dark Night of the Soul: The Year So Far Part II

And so it goes. 2020 continues its endless slog into the dark night of the soul that has been thrust upon us by the ruthlessness of nature, the cruelty of fate, and the incompetence of man. I would say it's unprecedented but by this point, so many truly strange and bizarre things have happened I’m

All of This is New to You, And New Can Be Scary (The Return of Doctor Who)

The new season (series) of Doctor Who started yesterday and I feel I am required to say something about it. Typically this is not something I do, at least in the terms of a “hot take” or some such thing. I usually like to ruminate on a thing for a week or a month perhaps

David Hicks: WHITE PLAINS Book Tour: Part 2

David Hicks published his first novel, White Plains, last year and then proceeded to launch a whirlwind tour of the USA to promote it. This he did on his own with very little support from his publisher and was basically accomplished by sheer determination and a whole lota gumption (yes, I used the word "gumption"

Swim Until You Cant See Land (Saying Goodbye to Scott Hutchison)

It was late December 2007 and I was driving home from work listening to the radio. There is an indie station that plays Christmas music by alternative bands with alternative takes on the holiday and that is the only type of Christmas music I listen to because yeah, I’m that guy. And then a

A Parliament of Owls (Or How Comic Books Make You Smarter)

Not very long ago I was out with some friends having dinner at a cozy little café in the mountains. It was a beautiful Colorado evening and we sat out on the deck as the sun was setting among the aspens and pines as humming birds and finches and jays nestled in the branches and

Obligatory Best of List for the Dumpster Fire Year That was 2017

2017 is officially over and frankly, good riddance. Among the vast amount of awful this past year brought we saw a once lauded political institution (know colloquially as “The United States”) become a world-wide punchline and a seemingly endless stream of celebrities and other men in positions of power get outed as sexual predators (so

Star Trek: Discovery is Great – Too Bad I’ll Never See It Again

Last Sunday something happened that I’ve been waiting for a long, long time. Star Trek returned to television for the first time in 12 years. Star Trek: Discovery premiered on CBS and to fans it was not only welcomed, it was praised. Because, you see, for the first time in - well it’s a matter

The Lord of Light: Jack Kirby’s Concept Art for Argo

This post was originally published on May 26, 2015  Remember that time Jack Kirby's art helped rescue six hostages in Iran? If you've seen the film Argo you should.  If you missed that part you can be forgiven, the details were a bit glossed over in the movie. If you weren't specifically looking for it
