I'm never gonna come down

The great move continues. Combined with planning my comic-con trip and working through a particularly busy time at YES Mag, it's made things pretty hectic around here over the last month or two. There are a number of things I've had to put off, like answering about two months of emails and completing two new shirt designs that I would really like to put up for sale. But of course, the comics are my first priority, and it's been tricky enough to keep up with them. (Thank goodness for my precious, slowly depleting buffer!) Hopefully, things will calm down soon, and I will have time to invest in the other aspects of this website again!

I woke up this morning to the worst song lyrics ever blarring through my radio. I was half expecting it to be some kind of parody, but Google informs me that it is a real Bryan Adams song called "Flying." I hope it didn't take him long to write.

Smooth taste

No extended rantage for today, I'm afraid. Claire and I have been too busy discovering the joys of hauling heavy furniture up four flights of stairs. (A big thank-you to our friends Ashton and Cyrus for helping move all that stuff!) I will return with more thoughts on Monday. In the meantime, please enjoy the photo below, which my Dad took at a children's museum in Scotland:

Non-stop disco, bet you it's Nabisco, bet you didn't know

Kristofer Straub has launched a brand-new webcomic this week called Starshift Crisis, and I am expecting great things. Straub's other comic, Checkerboard Nightmare, is criminally under-read; not because it doesn't have a decent-sized following, but because it deserves to have one the size of Florida. I suppose the subject matter does limit the audience somewhat. But I don't think that will be the case with Crisis. It's got a great look and a killer premise, and I'm really looking forward to seeing where he goes with it.

In related news, it looks like Straub and a few other Keenspot ex-pats have formed a new webcomic group called Blank Label Comics. Now, I realize these sorts of independent webcomic groups are all over the place these days -- heck, I'm part of one myself -- but don't write them off as another me-too operation. These six guys are seriously talented and their comics are definitely worth your time.
