TGIF!! After a long, hectic week, it is finally Friday evening. Yay!
I just wanted to give some shout outs and tie up some loose ends, so here we go!
In late, but very important and exciting news, Stykman creator Jonnie Allan and his wife celebrated the arrival of their son. Here is the official word:
"Those of you who visited us in San Diego noticed Miss Dawn wearing a STYKMAN T-Shirt that read "TWIG IN THE WAY." Well, he's here. On Monday, September 18 at 11:47 am Mr. Tyler James ("TJ") Allan was born and added to the Allan clan.
Tyler will begin making his convention appearances starting next year in March at Wizard World L.A.
Be sure and stop by to say hi and maybe, just maybe, get his autograph as well. "
Congratulations to Jonnie and Dawn Allan on this wonderful news! Check out Stykman #2 if you haven't already. I will try and get a review posted soon. See page one of Stykman #2 to the right.
I would also like to send belated congratulations to Laura over at Blogity-Blog-Blog-Blog. She celebrated her fourth anniversary of blogging on Sunday, October 22. That is an enviable and impressive accomplishment, and I remain a faithful reader. Here is to at least 4 more!
After reading issue one of Anita Blake: Guilty Pleasures and really liking the story, I decided to order the first four books of the Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter series. I just went and picked up the set tonight. It comes in a very cool coffin shaped box, which makes it all that more interesting to me. I will let you know the scoop as soon as I get a few read.
In the near future, I will be bringing you interviews with up and coming creators. I am really excited about this, and will hopefully have my first one up before the end of the weekend.
In closing, I am kinda surprised at the lack of opinions on my last post on the Wizard Hot 10 Artists list. I figured it would be a flame waiting to burn, so I don't know whether to be relieved or not. If nothing else, at least I got my opinions out there, so I feel better.
That's it for tonight. I am off to start reading the first Anita Blake book, Guilty Pleasures. I am also hoping to get a review done for at least one comic by the end of the weekend. Ambitious plans- hopefully I can follow through.
Have a wonderful evening!
