  1. 16: DON'T BUY THIS COMIC!

    Local Comics Shops We've tossed around lots of ideas since CAFP started, and most of them involve ideas about sales models and concepts for when the Direct Market/LCS system fail. A major bummer of an idea to be sure. With all the cards stacked against the DM system, LCS's would be in good...

  2. 15: Savage Fanboy

    So. Its been a busy week for me. I tried to keep my columns less blogish, but you should know that in addition to my normal webcomicking I do twice a week, I've also been putting together a mini-anthology of sorts, called Lady Fight. Its basically a short story collection featuring female...

  3. CAFP 14: Who's Watching the Borders?

    Alright, coming back from the dead here, I'd like to take this week and knock out some shorter items and thoughts... The Last Time I'll Talk about Watchmen (until the next time) Being that the movie was basically a commercial flop, the upshot is that sales on the comic... were not. Hitting...

  4. Comics Are for People: Hurm.

    Well I have to apologize to you this week. Immediately following last weeks' installment, I had a fairly catastrophic event involving my computer. Not my ONLY computer (obviously, I'm here) but the computer I do most of my comic book work on (I am, as they say, "l'artiste digital")... so it...

  5. Comics are For People 13: DC on the Spot and 1st Indie Corner!

    After Watchmen Follow Up I know, I know. MORE Watchmen. But this is really more about how happy I am with DC's handling of this whole "After Watchmen" campaign. Regular readers will remember that I called out DC several columns back after repeatedly dropping the ball on what should have been...

  6. Comics are For People 12: From Watching to Reading

    Let's skip the howdy-dos and get straight to: Watchmen Well, I'd be full of it if I didn't say Watchmen grabbed a lot of news this week. Not only has the comics community been having alternating fits of excitement and pulling out their hair for the last year (or really since right after 300...

  7. Comics Are For People 11: The REAL Report from WonderCon

    I kind of had an awakening at WonderCon-- I want to re-focus. I think I have been a guy standing with a sign that says "The End is Nigh" (Kovacs, maybe?) bitching about the state of comics. I look at my column, and i feel like, I want to say something GOOD about comics but all I can do is...

  8. Greetings from WonderCon Day 1!

    Quick check in from WonderCon. Fun first day! Not much to report back, I was super sleepy today after traveling... but, I had a good time, met some cool people, cool talent. Chatted a bit with Erik Larsen (such a cool guy), and saw Mark Hamill (who's line was regulated by Stormtroopers of...

  9. Comics Are for People #10 (Diamonds and Monkeys)

    When I said a month ago that the landscape of comics would see some major developments, I meant over the course of a decade or so... not just one month! Or even just a few weeks. Times they are a changin'... First off. Let me apologize for the lack of frequency of my columns of late. ...

  10. Comics Are For People #9 (Heroes Die, Legends Live Forever)

    Well, I have to apologize to those who missed me last week (which was, y'know, everyone looking for a new CAFP column). I took an un-announced, un-expected week off. My humble apologies. With WonderCon (the big show of the Bay Area) coming up, I've been super busy trying to get everything I need...

  11. Comics Are For People #8 (Seb Culture)

    So! You got me! I took advantage of the fact that the last two Thursdays were holidays and took a two week vacation from writing CAFP. I couldn't have accidentally planned it better! And after that Forby response column, I had just about wrung out my brains anyway, so... y'know. It works out...

  12. Comics Are For People #7

    Well howdy! It's THURSDAY, and I'm sick, but I'm here. So lets check out what's going on here... Forbes Last week, good ol' Forby posed some really good questions that get to the core of things we're exploring here. What I really want to do is look at examples and whatnot of trends and...

  13. Comics Are For People #6 (Pricey DVD Adventures!)

    Alright, I'm covering a bit of ground this week and trying to tie it all together here... recovering from what turned out to be a bit of a rant last week. Let's just jump into this: The Dark Knight Returns This time on DVD and Blu-Ray disc! What? You thought I was talking about the Frank...

  15. Comics Are For People #4 (the turkey rip-off)

    Hi folks... I have an apology to make. I was really trying to pull off a column this week, but between my regular comic duties and the holiday interrupting my regular drawing schedule, it didn't really work out. So we'll reconvene next week, hopefully with some juicy stuff! Until then,...

  16. Comics Are For People #3

    Comics Are For People #3 Hey comics people! Its time for yet another installment of Comics Are for People. As you may have noticed, I bumped CAFP back to Thursdays now, to steal a little less glory from the SEB-Standard. And just in time for Thanksgiving, too! Depending on how things go,...

  17. Comics Are For People #2 (CAFP goes APE)

    So! There’s been a pretty good response to the column going into week two here. So that’s a good thing. I promised I’d let you all know how APE (that’s the Alternative Press Expo) went down and whatnot, so why not just jump right on into it! APE 2008 For those of you who don’t know (and...

  18. Comics Are For People #1 (collectors item!)

    "Comics are for people!" This being my first column, I suppose I should explain myself a bit, and the focus that I hope for this column to take. Comics are for people. Let me tell you how I came to this, rather than explaining myself outright from the get go. Over the last five years,...
