I’m trying to get better about cross posting content again. In that vein…here is a cross post to today’s hopefully super fun SHE HAS NO HEAD! which is all about creating a comics time capsule!

Time Capsule Compliation2

Other posts I’ve done recently that you might have missed?

This bit about how the new Brian Wood and Olivier Coipel X-MEN is ALL I’VE EVER WANTED!

And I did some pieces on LIT REACTOR:

This one about the resurgence of “choose your own adventure” stories (in comics and elsewhere)

This one about why people should stop hassling me to read Game of Thrones and just let me enjoy the television show (for now).

Of course if you’ve been hiding out and neglected to notice that I borderline broke people’s brains with the fact that I hated Man of Steel (read that here), here is a rather unorthodox Superman “Book vs Film” comparison on Lit Reactor.

I also did this one about the awesomeness that is Dustin Nguyen and Derek Fridolf’s Batman: Lil’ Gotham.



I also had the pleasure of recently giving 4 or more stars to all of the following comics:

Hawkeye #12

Quantum & Woody #1

Adventure Time: Candy Capers #1

Daredevil: Dark Nights #2

Suicide Risk #3

The Wake #2



Whew. Okay. That’s it for now!!!

Thanks everyone, I hope you find something enjoyable to read!

A new piece of mine went up on Lit Reactor if you missed it, it’s inspired by the Orson Scott Card/DC thing, but it’s mostly an open discussion about where you draw the line between creator and what they create. Head on over and retweet/comment at will!

I wrote a few reviews for CBR this week. I really liked A+X #5, especially Kathryn Immonen and David LaFuente’s hilarious (and gorgeous) Doop + Iron Fist team up. $3.99 is still really expensive for two 10-page short stories, but it was pretty fucking good.

I also reviewed My Little Pony #4 – which I liked but didn’t fall in love with, and Red She-Hulk #63 which continues to miss for me, unfortunately. :(

Oh! And a new 3 Chicks podcast went up on Monday on CSBG…give it a listen. We definitely talk about SANDWICHES!

An all-new She Has No Head! is up, kids. And I really like this one, so check it out.

I get to rave about the idea of Brian Wood’s upcoming X-Men title while bitching about everything that was wrong with Marvel Divas. Oh, Marvel, how far you’ve come! I feel like a proud parent! :)

I’ve been meaning to post about this very cool event MIX 2012 sponsored by Columbus College of Art & Design for a long while now, but have been so swamped that now I look at my calendar and it is upon us!

So it’s terribly late notice for those of you not in the area, but if you are in the area, you really should consider attending this amazing new event organized by the Columbus College of Art & Design and featuring two days of symposiums, a 24-hour comics marathon, and an exhibition.  The schedule looks great, and when Chris Ware is your keynote speaker, you know you’ve done something right!

It’s held at the Columbus College of Art & Design campus and begins on October 3rd and runs through October 6th. You can get all the details at the link and if you’re in the area, you should definitely head over there!

New She Has No Head! today, kids.

And as the column today will tell you, I’m doing THIS new thing…cause you know…I don’t already have enough to do.

Other things you should know, She Has No Head! is going to have to be on hiatus for August…I just have to focus on THE GIRL WHO WOULD BE KING stuff (sorry!) but it’ll be back full swing in September. I hope Sue and I will still get an episode or two of 3 Chicks up in August, but no promises!

Also, I DO promise to get you the last two days of “30 Days Of Superheroines”…I swear it’s gonna happen. This week even! :)


Make sure you check out 3 Chicks Review Comics this week as we’ve got the absolutely delightful Brian Wood joining us for a big interview. There’s also some juicy information after the credits about a special project I’m working on. Enjoy!

Head on over and check it out.

Hey, kids!

So I’ve been really sick, which is why you got no 3 Chicks and no She Has No Head! today. But I hope to be back with a new column next week, and 3 Chicks will be back soon as well.

In the meantime, here are some things I did prior to getting sick (and while sick). Enjoy!

Last week for She Has No Head! I wrote about the Avengers and the superheroine movies I’d like to see now that Joss Whedon has shown me that superheroines can be done right on the big screen. I even casted them – what more could you want?

I also put up a detailed Joss Whedon piece on Lit Reactor last week called “Can Joss Whedon Save The Superheroine?”

If you have any interest in writing, catch up on my Long & Winding Road pieces over on Lit Reactor, because Part III goes up next week!

I also participated in a Wonder Woman Roundtable over at Hooded Utilitarian. There are some amazing pieces up there, and here’s mine (which is less amazing): Wonder Woman: It’s In Her DNA (although Adam correctly pointed out that I should have called it “Wonder Woman makes a nice foot cushion”  I’m thinking of renaming my entire site that.

I only did two reviews for CBR last week thanks to illness but here they are in case you missed them:

The Walking Dead #97

Uncanny X-Force #25

Also, if you haven’t picked up Womanthology or Chicks Dig Comics yet (both of which I’m in!) then you should do that now. Greg Burgas has a nice review up of Womanthology…Greg doesn’t pull punches so you know he’s being straight with you. I’ve rarely been mentioned in the great reviews that have been coming in for Chicks Dig Comics, no real surprise there considering the company I’m in, but mentioned my piece, which was an awesome moment.

I’m also WAY behind on Drunk Cover Solicits. But I should be able to do it this weekend…do not despair!

Also, I may be having some very cool original art to show you guys this week…so stay tuned.
