  1. SEB-standard 31: ANCHOR'S AWAY

    Awright, I haven’t written one of these columns in quite some time. I’ve been too busy with too many other things. In fact, I’m STILL too busy. I have a gazillion other tasks that need my attention right this very minute. So, what, you may very well be asking, has dragged me back to pages of...

  2. SEB-standard 30: My favorite comics from 2009

    Ok, so here we are, the last Wednesday of 2009. Am I here to give a speech about new beginnings and resolutions to be timelier with these things in 2010? No. See, I like you guys and wouldn’t want to lie to you. Truth is, between teaching the felons, writing CAT. 5, and doing the various reviews,...

  3. SEB-standard 29: Thinking IN-STORE but OUT-OF-THE-BOX

    Hey, gang. Been awhile. Well, maybe it hasn’t been awhile since we spoke, I’ve been popping reviews, news, comments, and the odd interview up all over the site, but we haven’t had a SEB-standard in awhile. So, I figured, I should get out there. As Forby said, I need to make sure my name is seen....

  5. SEB-standard 27: Comic Book 101

    It’s Wednesday and you know what that means? Ok, yeah, it means new comics come out… Yes, yes, it is “hump day” and we’re midway through the work week… What’s that? Yes, you’re right, it is named for the Norse God, Odin, also known as Woden or Wotan. (Can you guess which Norse God...

  6. SEB-standard 26: Declaration of INDEPENDENTS

    All the comics, independent, throw your hands up at me!! You guessed it, today I’m gonna talk a little about some of the indies. No, I’m not gonna get all technical or behind the scenes, this is just a “what I think is cool” segment. You can agree or disagree, I don’t really mind, but...

  7. SEB-Standard 25: Obama & Comics

    Ok, ya know what…I was gonna go with one idea for this week’s column, but then I received an inspiration in the form of Mavlock’s post about The Army of Darkness/Obama cover and the countless Obama appearances that came before it. Now, before you get all Republicans vs. Democrats on me, chill....

  8. SEB-standard: Week 17 - Defending my Hero: Me, Megacon, and the Blue Beetle

    Heroes are defending the common man (and woman) all the time. It's what they do. It's who they are. It's...well, to be perfectly honest, it's heroic. But who defends the heroes? Remember that uplifting, if heavy handed, scene in the first SPIDER-MAN movie? Spidey is holding the kids in one hand,...

    Anyone who reads my writing here on PFB knows that I am a HUGE fan of Geoff Johns. What nobody, including myself, knew was that apparently Geoff Johns is big fan of mine. No, really. You know the upcoming mega event, BLACKEST NIGHT? Totally my idea. I know what you’re thinking, “Seb, you...

    Saturday, May 2nd, was FREE COMIC BOOK DAY, but I don’t have to tell YOU that! Die hard comic fans that you are, I’m sure many of you found your way into a comic shop or two. I, myself, spent the day with Rick Shea and the boys from FAMOUS FACES AND FUNNIES in Melbourne Florida, and oh, a good...

    So, I’ve been kind of busy and missed a week or two. I forget. But life, work, and MADDIE SCIENTIST have all eaten up most of my time, so forgive me. Anyway, when last we had one of these little chats, I was huffing and puffing after the big FAMOUS FACES AND FUNNIES FLASH RACE to commemorate...

    Ok, it’s Wedne--- er, Ok, fine. It’s Saturday. Perhaps you noticed that SEB-standard was missing this week. Or perhaps, you were too busy reading the BETTER column, like either of Forby’s columns, or Matt’s, or Brad’s cover gallery; and therefore never noticed my absence. Meanies. Anyway,...

  13. SEB-Standard Week 20: Tooting my own horn!

    What a long strange week it’s been. Sometime just after the last installment of this fine editorial, I got word from The Grim Crew, that my 10 page script, “….with a whimper,” was accepted for their zombie collection, DEAD FUTURE. This will be my first comic script to be published by anyone...

  14. SEB-Standard Week 19: I didn't call for back-up! Did you call for back-up?

    Hey, gang. Now that we have all these NEW columns popping up, the pressure is on, so I’m gonna have to bring my “A” game. So, I figure I’ll bring my “A” game to talk about “B” list characters from “DC” comics. So, with the help of the alphabet and some dyslexic imagination, I’m bringing my ABCD...

  16. SEB-standard: Week 16 - The Con Artist

    One of the most important rules of writing is to always, ALWAYS, write down ideas as you have them. Otherwise you forget them. One minute you’ve got this brilliant idea, that you’re fleshing out as you go; the next thing you know, it’s a week later and you’re about to write your column and you’re...

    Diamond. A diamond is hard and unyielding. A diamond is also worth a LOT of money. So, you can see that when Diamond Comics Distributers named themselves, they really hit the nail on the head. Now, there has been a lot of talk of late --and before that (of early?), but let’s focus on the...

    The internet is filled with angry comic fans. They’re everywhere and they are seldom happy. With anything. At all. Hit any of the forums, you’ll find page-after-page of post-after-post of comic fans telling what’s wrong with their “favorite” comics. Heck, we all know I’ve done it. So what is all...

Apparently, my views and opinions on the comic world in general draw less attention than my misadventures as a wannabe comic writer. What you don't know, but I...

  24. SEB-standard: Week 8 - Expectations, Aspirations, & Collaborations!

    Wednesday means two things. 1 – New comics. Well, not this week, but usually! and 2 – I have to get up a new column installment. So, this week I decided to feed off the momentum of Forby’s Bolts & Nuts, because 1 – It’s such a great column and 2 – it’s easier than coming up with my own idea. ...
