Force Majeure: Priarie Bay #1 Wild Stars: The Book of Circles cover

The WILD STARS go digital!

Beginning with Force Majeure: Prairie Bay #1, I've made all of the Wild Stars comics available in Digital Format. They're available to read online, or for downloading, at:

To read more about the special features of the expanded digital version of Wild Stars: The Book of Circles graphic novel, check out the new Hidden Wild Stars page!



Tarzan Large Feature #5 Tarzan Single Series #20
I've started a new section on the History of Comics. For the initial overview of how comics are made, start here.


Tarzan of the Apes is the first subject. Tarzan is a character who has been an integral part of the comics industry since the very beginning of the artform.

Walt Disney's Comics & Stories #1 Uncle Scrooge #1

Walt Disney and The Good Duck Artist


The next Comics History page is devoted to the legendary Carl Barks.

Carl Barks was always one of my favorite storytellers, being both an exceptional artist and extraordinary storyteller. It was a rare combination.

If you'd like a quick tour of the career of the man who, because he worked in an age before printed credits, was known as The Good Duck Artist, all you have to do is click this link: Disney Ducks!

Walt Disney Comics & Stories and Uncle Scrooge and the images on both sides are TM and (C) by Walt Disney Co.

Destination Comics!








Both
Collector's Edition and The Comic Book Store were a Destination Comics! feature location in issue #1664 (April 2010) of the Comics Buyer's Guide magazine.










I've added a new section to try and dispell a common misconception†about the comic book industry.

Comic Book Store owners always get a bad rap, as the public perception is that we're all like the rude, Simpson's Comic Book Store Guy, laziing around, and surrounded by nothing but food and big stacks of Super-Hero comics.

Like a Super-Hero, my other hobbies involve a mask and breathing apparatus, specialized training that includes rescue, dangerous activities and encounters with deadly animals,†plus travel around the world to exotic locations,†including a†trip down the road to a lost civilization.

These†are the incredible, but true adventures of a masked Comic Book Store Guy:

We've all heard of Good Luck Charms.
Here are my experiences in surviving an extremely potent Bad Luck Charm.
Decades ago I read a comment by award-winnning science-fiction and fantasy writer Michael Moorcock, who refered to writing as an act of exorcism.
This is my exorcism:

Nothing here to do with publishing or such. This page is a community service where I share, for the benfit of others, my experiences in dealing with lightning, felled trees and insurance companies. Even included a recent tornado experience.
