A Potpourri of Thoughts.

There’s no one thing I want to blog about today.  I have a number of smaller thoughts and topics rattling around in my brain, so I’ll just list them in bite-sized paragraphs.  Here we go.

– At FanExpo Boston I did an interview with The Reality Bomb ComiCast!  It was a really fun, informal chat and it was a pleasure to meet Colin, who interviewed me.  We chatted about STAR POWER, how I got into making comics, future ideas, and I even name-dropped the title of our next storyline!  The whole FanExpo Boston episode is worth listening to, but if you’re pressed for time my interview starts at the 53:56 mark.  The podcast was recorded at my table, so you can hear the background buzz of the crowd throughout our talk, which I found to be a nice touch.

– I continue to be enamored with No Man’s Sky.  I’ve blogged about this numerous times before, but I’ll happily talk about my enjoyment again.  As I get deeper into the galaxy the planets become more unusual, inhospitable, and grand.  The revamped storyline makes you feel like you’re in an otherworldly sci-fi odyssey, as opposed to a two-fisted blaster adventure.  This is the space game I’ll be playing for a long time.

– I’m going to have nightmares about the port-a-potty at the playground yesterday.  Imagine a cartoon of what a gross port-a-potty would look like.  This was about ten times worse.  My toddler had to use it.  Twice.

– U.S. politics continue to make me mad as hell, and all my political opinions have dissolved into an outraged spray of obscenities.  If you want to know what a political post from me is like these days, just bang your head and hands against your keyboard while screaming.

– My quest to read more comics in 2018 continues nicely.  I may not be reading a lot of current releases, but a good comic is timeless.  My latest read was the latest installment of the Blacksad series, called “Amarillo.”  I didn’t find it as good as the earlier books in the series, but Amarillo is still a great read.  The artwork is expressive and vibrant, and even if you don’t enjoy the story the artwork will leave you spellbound.  Blacksad: Amarillo comes recommended from me.

And that’s all I’ve got to talk about today!
