I don't know if I'll post this one...
On the other hand, I found out that if I was a Christmas food I'd be a trifle. I don't know what to think of these quizzes.

Anyhow, back to comics. I'm one of those lucky jerks who gets a pile of free DC comics every month. I'm on the comp list. Marvel used to have a comp list before their short lived financial crisis in the mid 90s. Anyhow, I thought I'd write down the books I yanked to read first.
Fables: still top of the list
Shadowpact and Jack of Fables: more Willingham goodness!
Welcome to Tranquility: they sent me a preview and I did a later cover. Good stuff.
Uncle Sam and the Freedom Fighters: Daniel Acuña is my current inspiration! Why does he have an IMDB entry?
Astro City: Dark Ages
100 Bullets: written by Chicago's own Brian Azzarello
Cat Woman: mainly for the Adam Hughes covers. He's a continuing inspiration. Beyond near flawless technique his graphic creativity keeps blowing me away. His laurels have never been slept on.
The BOYS: Just noticed the creative team. How did I miss the previous issues?
Midnighter: Studyng Chris Sprouse's work marked my style transition in 1999. Still love his work. That Garth Ennis guy's pretty good too.
Superman Confidential: Again, how'd I miss the first issue?
Beyond that, my pal Lowell's has me studying the world of manga. Really enjoying Scott Pilgrim, Death Note and Kare Kano. Pilgrim is really a Canadian book, not true manga. Definitely one of my favorite reads right now. I do wish that he'd stop drawing Nancy noses...

Memes I like
I've been reading Dork Tower and Penny Arcade for years. Now my friends Sherri and Lowell have gotten me hooked on Scary Go Round. The rotating cast of young fun heroes face up to a rotating cast of mystical and annoying threats. In today's episode a young British woman has been forced into nunning by the Devil. And now her young charges have mutinied and are chucking her into a wicker vole. It's hard to explain, you'll have to check it out yourself...
I just can't stop reading it!

Photos from Cleveland
Jeremy is the broad shouldered kid behind the Jeremy-Dale.com table sign and draws Absolute Zeroes. Kelly is the striking red head not wearing Phoenix tights and works as a school psychologist. They've moved to South Carolina recently, so I guess the students are crazier there than Indiana.
