Always a busboy, never a bride.

Picture Click that big picture and you'll go to the new album I have out! It's called NO COAST, and it was written and recorded in two short bursts: one in July of 2016 and one in June of 2017. It's the audio companion to my first chapbook, MURMURATION (2012, Passenger Side Books). 

The first three tracks are from that first session, where I could only record so loud in my apartment, which I only brin... Read more of this blog post »

Is This Guy For Real? by Box Brown
Rate this book
Clear rating
Another great Box Brown book! His style is deceptively simply, with a Sunday morning funnies sort of rounded sparseness to it. There’s enough room for the story! It’s maybe an odd thing to compliment in a visual medium, but the art doesn’t draw atten ...more

Okay, I'm sucked back in. The art took a step down with Pete Woods--who is pretty dang good, but doesn't feel special to me the way Staples and Eisma do--but the story got ramped the heck up.

It's cool that Waid can still express creativity in the wor

I thought I was going to love this because "Crazy Glue" hit me just right towards the beginning, but there's not a whole lot to grab onto here. This reminded me of Fine Fine Fine Fine Fine by Diane Williams in that it's a bunch of very short stories ...more

While I’m still missing Fiona Staples, the addition of Joe Eisma here is a welcome one. I love his work on Morning Glories—the way he draws really gives the colors room to do their thing, even if I kept seeing Archie as Hunter from MG—and he delivers ...more

Fiona Staples is really great and Mark Waid can write the beginning of a story (and sometimes the other parts of a story, but definitely the beginning) like nobody's business. "Throw them into this preconceived world and let them wind it up" is as go ...more

This was good, but I miss Fiona Staples! She should draw everything, including books that are already written. Just go back and illustrate 100 Years of Solitude or something.

I also feel like I'm already getting the full effects of the shaggy dog stor

I haven't read alot of Murakami, but I highly recommend his early works, 'Wild Sheep Chase' and 'Dance, Dance, Dance' (the sequel). More recently, people say good things about 'The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle' which will be the next I read..

Japanese in translation my favorite is Junichiro Tanazaki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jun'...
One of my favorite authors of all time..
