The Dear Dracula interview

This is the interview Vinny and I did with the awesome Vaneta Rogers for Newsarama about Dear Dracula. It's two months old, but I felt it needed posting:
Click here for the interview.

While watching tv tonight and reading a few tv reviews I had this thought:
When did making obscure, random references in scripts that only a few people MIGHT get equate to "smart writing"?

Thanks for reading.

Eventually, I plan on doing a con report. Not just of the San Diego con from this last month, but of the 5 cons (New York, LA, Portland, Seattle, San Diego) I went to this last year. It'll hopefully be something short and sweet. But as a teaser, of sorts, I'll post this. One of the coolest things about the San Diego Convention was seeing the Dear Dracula bookmarks Image/ Shadowline made for us.

We handed them out like crazy. We brought our own flyers /postcards, but still Image has been giving out bookmarks for years and seeing the Dear Dracula one among them was very rad.
Here is what our flyers looked like:

Lately, I've been watching, in rotation on dvd, episodes of Avatar, Everybody Loves Raymond and Tales from the Crypt. It's been giving me weird nap dreams.

OH, yeah and another thing at the SD con. I bought a toy! I haven't bought a single toy in a year, so what was my prize?

4 BUCKS! That's right 4 dollars. I had the ones, so what the hell, right? I like the Corpse Bride movie, and this toy looked cool to me. Also, he reminded me of the Gentleman Zombie. Looking back I wish I had bought two, then I could customize my very own GZ toy.

I wish this cartoon series was on dvd...

I've read that 3 episodes will be on the new edition dvd of the movie coming out in September.

I updated my myspace for the first time in a very long, long time. Even made a rare friend request.
I started a new issue one script tonight for a new project. So far so good. I have a few goals to make this year, and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they happen.

Jacob Glaser updated his website. go. look.
The Indy Jones piece is worth the click alone.

It's raining outside. More later.

Been a long time.

It's been some time since my last posting. I need to get back in the swing of things, just been really busy. I moved to Portland back in April. I went to 5 conventions since January. I stayed in Long Beach and San Diego for 10 days for the comic-con. I got a nasty, but funny, sunburn on my face. I sold my comic collection on ebay... which felt a little bit like selling my soul. (Btw, it kind of makes me feel good knowing that "ebay" isn't in my spell check.)

I need to get back on the blog wagon slow, so for starters I'm going to post this:

Over the years I've grown to really love stop motion animation. When I was young, 18 or so, I wasn't a fan. Well, I was young and just didn't get it, I didn't see it. Now I do. I'd love to develop something for stop motion. This last year I've rediscovered Tim Burton in a way. I love his movies, his writings, his feel. I hope to one day do a book that has the same feel, the conflicts of black and white, and the gothic tone.

The best comic I read this week was Legion of Three Worlds by George Perez and Geoff Johns. I'm a big fan of Legion. The main three things at DC I want to write are Batman, Green Arrow and Legion. Of those three I have the most stories, notes for stories, and sadly to say fan fiction of the Legion.

IDW will begin publishing G.I.Joe in October. They published Aleister Arcane by Steve Niles a few years ago. I had a weird dream last night that Aleister Arcane was going to be the new bad guy in G.I.Joe. Weird. That's what having a chicken salad at 3am will do to you.

Wrestling has been very lame. Nothing new to see here, move along.

Right now I'm working on the edits to the script to Necessary Evil issue 10 and listening to the Francis Ford Coppola's Dracula soundtrack... opp... took too long to post, make that the Ocean's Eleven score.

I'll post more often... I promise.
