*coughs* Pardon the early hour (where I am, anyway). Did not want to miss Day 27 entirely! What have you been doing?

— Thinking. Maybe a little, maybe a lot.
— Writing.
— Planning and / or researching.
— Editing.
— Sending things to the beta.
— Posting!
— Relaxing, taking a break, etc.
— Other stuff-ing. Look at the comment.

Question of the day: When you sit down to type, do you have a preference for the type of keyboard you have to use?

'The "insane" -- ie, foaming at the mouth -- Joker is definitely far, far off-model from the correct portrayal of the character. The real Joker was able to keep Batman guessing because he was smart and ruthless, not because he was crazy. The latter is a lot like saying a drunk driver would have the best chance of winning at the Indy 500!'- John Byrne

If there was one Marvel book that I had to say was probably the weakest thing currently being published, it would be America. It's not because of the themes or the character, but mostly on the writing... and how the character is written. There's... problems if you haven't noticed.


As such, let's take a brief look at one of the scenes of the first issue.

We're all well aware that All Star Batman and Robin was off the wall, with its story of Batman making Dick Grayson, aged twelve, eat rats in the Batcave, The Goddamn Batman, Wonder Woman calling a man "Sperm bank", "Fast hands, my little Robin. Fast hands, big mouth" and Batman painted yellow for a meeting with Green Lantern.

Scott Snyder clearly took inspiration from this series when writing his own All Star Batman

Sometimes, life is a dungeon crawl. Sometimes, it's more of a match-three puzzle game. So ... what's it been for you today? What have you been doing?

— Thinking. Maybe a little, maybe a lot.
— Writing.
— Planning and / or researching.
— Editing.
— Sending things to the beta.
— Posting!
— Relaxing, taking a break, etc.
— Other stuff-ing. Look at the comment.

Question for today: On a scale of 1 to 10, how disgusted do you usually get with your first draft of a longer work?

Cloud Stories

Hi. Frequent lurker, occasional poster. My new book CLOUD STORIES goes on sale in better comic book stores around the USA today so I thought I should make a post here about it. It's a collection of short comics stories loosely organized around the topic of clouds. They vary in subject and tone from horror to slapstick comedy, high fantasy to memoir. I think it's pretty good!

Cloud Stories Cover 12 pages from a 216 page book )

...is here:

The interview starts at about 1 minute in, and runs about 30 minutes.

This was recorded on Day 4 of ConVergence, earlier this month. (Which seems longer ago than that, already.)

Ta, L.
