For me to rabble and ramble incoherently. Or to talk about Creative Freedom comics like Defenders of the Gene. Same thing , really

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve watched this interview with Stan Lee and the Romitas. Easily one of my favorites. Like, it’s not even the most smooth interview cause I’m pretty sure it’s sorta a commercial for marvel or Stan’s persona kinda gets in the way, but once the guys go over to the drawing board, oh man, it just opens right up. They joke, tease and play around and it’s one of the most motivating and inspiring things for me to have on in the background while I’m working. Sr. is very clearly someone with a great appreciation for the comics medium and a lot of thoughts and ideas on how to work and what makes great comics, clarity, storytelling, work ethic, but for the most part is just too damn nice to say a lot of them, and JRJR is just as hard a worker, with just as strong an understanding of comics and what should be done. Just a couple of class acts. Love it
X-Men sort of morning. Kinda miss the old stories, just don’t feel the same about what’s been done the last few years. Well, actually at this point it’s been like 15 years since I really enjoyed the way the x-books were done. I don’t know, I liked the clairmont era. And I know it’s probably blasphemous, but I never cared for Grant Morrison’s run.
But I’ve heard good things about the new x-book with the original team time-traveling and now there are two versions, I may have to get the first trade.
but yea, x doodles

Hi, folks. Here’s a five-page preview of a mini I hope to have on sale next week. (People ask me for advice on a weekly basis, anyway; might as well consolidate it all into one handy package.) Stuff I plan to include:
- What to ask the printer
- How to calculate your goal properly
- How to price and sell your books
- Good backer bonus ideas
- Your Frenemy The Post Office
And so on and soforth.
It’ll probably run 30 or so pages- it’s roughed out that far, anyway- And I’ll be selling it for $5.00.
I’ll drop you folks an update when it’s finished.
