First off, the passing of Drew Hayes (Poison Elves) - an online friend from the old Wizard section on AOL, Drew helped me a lot via internet chats when I was just starting to send out comic samples back in the early 90's. He'll be missed.
Inspiration: Bill Sienkiewicz on Fanboy Radio, Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser - finally, the Drink and Draw Social Club hard cover book, The ModBook - got to play with one of these at WizardWorld LA 2007, Pandora.com - essential tunes for hanging out at the drawing table, Harry Potter comic buzz,
Reading: Brubaker and Lark on Daredevil, Brubaker and Phillips on Criminal, Azzarello and Rizzo 100 Bullets trades.
More coming soon.
