A nifty piece of fan art from the crazily talented Adam P. Knave. Thank you, Adam! We are back! To do that thing to your ears that you insist you like! (Really, you like it? Really?) After the jump — show notes! That thing I do to your eyes that…maybe is helpful? Even the way I do it, maybe? Join us!

Yup, we talk about Action Comics #18! And I think…we even have stuff to say? Maybe, kinda? Behind the jump: show notes annotating the podcast commenting on the industry having one of its craziest weeks ever! Action verbs! Jazz hands! Psychedelic Superman!

Above: The Farm Fusion Waffle, which is a liege waffle topped with mushroom, spinach, roasted pepper, tomato and marinated chevre, from the Waffle Window, Portland, OR. Yes, that is one mighty tasty waffle, let me tell you — although let me be honest, I do not tell you in episode 95, I merely mention it to you now. But! Trust me, it’s darn good. As for what we do discuss in this episode, join me behind the jump for… show notes!

And so without further delay, Graeme and I are back with another podcast episode designed to amuse and bemuse. (“Design” might be a little too strong a word, though.) In this ep., we discuss our preparations (both mental and physical) for seeing Green Lantern: The Movie, as well as the Marvel event from 1989 Atlantis Attacks; Mark Gruenwald’s legacy on Captain America; Jack Kirby, Neil Gaiman, the Berganza/Didio interview tour, Avenging Spider-Man, the perfect setting for Tron 3, SDCC, and more. You can find it on iTunes or listen to it here: Wait, What? Ep. 45: It Will Be Brought. Finally, we hope you enjoy Graeme’s dramatic interpretation of a beloved comic book character, which I’ve excerpted below in the… Read More…

I quite like the BEST AMERICAN COMICS series. I think that it provides a generally decent overview of what’s happening in non-cape comics in any given year, and I like it as an “entry drug” for civilians, as a retailer. This year’s installment, guest-edited by Neil Gaiman, is another fine fat package of comic goodness, but I think a few of the flaws of the approach were pretty magnified this year. Primarily, I was fairly dismayed at the length of some of the excerpts this year. While it was nice to see something capey make the book this year (well, last year they tried to get Batman Year 100 in there, but DC refused), and something from Marvel at that,… Read More…

Here’s at least two bloggish posts about the Gaiman signing: First from Matt Maxwell, and the second from Seth Rosenblatt. The latter has this nice pic (if I’m linking correctly, at least) Also, here’s the photodump of pictures that Susan Riddle took. If you know of any other posts, please let me know! -B

It was a very very nice event. Neil read from WHO KILLED AMANDA PALMER (which I overnight Saturday deliveried a case of copies in — I should have had THREE cases, damn it; I’ll be restocking those, for sure!) for about a half hour, then we did the signing itself. Despite the fact that he had lunch plans with Daniel Handler, he still took the time to talk to each and every person in line for five minutes or so, and did little head sketches for most of them. He was utterly gracious with his time and attention, and sat through scores of photos, and everything else. We were scheduled to end at 12:30, and, instead, wrapped at something closer… Read More…

Look: it is the new Tilting At Windmills, and here I talk about Neil Gaiman and Tyrese Gibson and Social Networking and Marketing, and how perfect storms are pretty imperfect after all. Some months are a long hard search for a subject, but this month was, in a way, a gift as it was 100% obvious what I HAD to write about. If you don’t/won’t/can’t comment at CBR, well you can say something here (but Jonah’d be more happy if you said something over there, yeah) -B

(There’s a long, rambly story that goes with this, which you can find here, but just so as to not bury the lede…) Comix Experience is very proud to announce, as part of its ongoing 20th anniversary celebration, a rare San Francisco reading/Q&A/Signing with acclaimed author Neil Gaiman on Sunday, July 19th from 11 AM to 12:30 PM. Later Edit: The event is now completely sold out, and we thank everyone for their interest and patience! -B

OK, so you all remember that 2009 is Comix Experience’s 20th anniversary, right? (April first, to be exact!) Those of you who are actually customers may also note that we didn’t exactly do anything special for it (like a party or something). This is because my plan was to do several events throughout the year to celebrate, probably culminating in that party on the Twenty-First birthday because, y’know, then she’s legal to drink and all. I’d actually been thinking about this for a very long time. How long? Well, it was way back on February 15th, 2006 (!) that I first emailed Neil Gaiman a message with the title “How Is Your 2009 looking?” Neil’s one of those Major League… Read More…
