Quick Hits: 2011 Tasks

I never got around to doing this in the last couple of weeks since 2011 has stormed in, but I have a few minutes here during my lunch break, so I thought I would ramble on about what is to come here on the blog, and for Jason Richards Publishing. 2010 was great, and saw some good things happen. Wrote a little for Palladium, turned in my manuscript for Chaos Earth: …

Update On "The Uniques Tales" Comic

Just a quick hit here. The comic book that I penned in the amazing series, The Uniques Tales , is going to be released online on Wednesday, July 14th, instead of today. Nothing big or tragic or anything, but the holiday weekend got in the way of some contributors wrapping things up. The header image is the first page of the comic, without lettering. Jeremy …

Quick Hit: Geek Itinerary

Lots to do this weekend, my friends. Lost to do. I have before me a rare weekend that presents to me no extraneous “to do” list. I don’t have to go anywhere. I don’t have to do yard work. I’m not being called into the office. To my knowledge, the wife does not have any surprises to drop on me at the last minute. This means that I can get…

Another Free Comic, Complete With Awesome

Adam and Comfort have done it once again, with another great addition to their comic series, The Uniques Tales . These stories take place in the generations leading up to their amazing regular work, The Uniques . This time it’s a 1940s tale, straight from the battlefield of WWII. Each issue, all of which are free, is written and illustrated by a different team. The…

Hal Jordan For Congress

Just a super quick hit today. Do you think that prospective U.S. Representative Hal Jordan of North Carolina understands why his website gets so many random hits? I’d love to see his Google Analytics report to see what searches bring people to his website . It would be awesome if he turns out to be a former test pilot. There’s a “DC” joke in there somewhere, as well. While …

Spend Two Minutes To Benefit The Gaming Hobby

Happy Monday, gamers. I’m sure, like me, you’re struggling through your work day, fueled only by caffeine and the thoughts of the upcoming weekend, which is probably a long one if you’re here in the States. To help you survive the drag of this most hellish of all days, I invite you to take two minutes to give something back to the gaming hobby. …

Quick Hit: George Lucas is a liar

So, George Lucas is a liar. Hey, we already knew that, right? But, finally, after years and years of his constant fibbing, Lucas has admitted that he made up the Star Wars story as he went along in a letter that he wrote to the producers of Lost. Read what he says, below the fold: Congratulations on pulling off an amazing…

Quick Hit: RIP Frank Frazetta

Another very unfortunate departure of a real talent from the geek world. Even if you don’t know the name, you certainly know the work of legendary fantasy artist, Frank Frazetta . We all wish him well on his journey. Read the New York Times article for more.

Quick Hit: What Should I Ask Phil Collins?

Not exactly geek/gamer material, but too interesting not to post about. I’m actually going to get the opportunity to rub elbows with the rock legend tonight. He’s giving a lecture about his collection of Texas Revolution artifacts , which is the largest collection in the world. Yes, he’s a Brit. Yes, he lives in Switzerland. Yes, it’s weird. But yes, it’s also very true. I’m fortunate enough …

Quick Hit: How Soon Is Too Soon?

So, my lovely and darling wife had to work on Friday night, so I had a bro-date with my little brother to check out Iron Man 2 on opening night at the IMAX. She doesn’t understand my need to see it on opening weekend, but I’m used to that. The question is, when is too soon to geek out over a movie and see it again? I was …
