(I tried to talk about different things different places, I promise.)

A quick collection of the latest interviews on GENERATION HOPE, CAPTAIN AMERICA & BUCKY, ASTONISHING X-MEN, and even some stuff about theater, comedy, and where the hell I came from!

Probably the most quickly comprehensive interview I’ve done is on Comic Vine.  And it’s on a website that runs its own comics wiki that I use RELIGIOUSLY!

A dedicated chat about ASTONISHING X-MEN #43 with Newsarama!  Hilariously, this was going to be part of a comprehensive interview, but the writer and I really got chatty – so they broke it up into a couple pieces 🙂  PS – Astonishing is OUT NOW!

Newsarama part 2: GENERATION HOPE!  More than any interview, this is where I talk about the thought process behind some of the scripts and choices.

Why read?  Watch and listen to a video interview!  We talk a bit more about how comedy and theater lead me into comics.

Believe it or not, I think there might still be some more stuff coming.

Also, CBR (ComicBookResources.com) gave my Astonishing X-Men issue 4/5 stars!  You can read it all here but the real take away is – YOU SHOULD BUY A COPY!  At your local comic book store 🙂

❤ You.

my wife!

PS - this is my wife 🙂

I’m breaking with tradition.   This post isn’t about promoting something.

I tend to only think to post here when I’m promoting something.   But that’s probably because I think of this as my forum as a writer & performer.  Then things like Facebook are for me ‘the human being’.

On that note, I have just recently started to get ‘friend requests’ from people I don’t actually know – but they know my work.   My wife (that just happened, BTW) has really been pushing the idea that I shouldn’t friend those people, but rather direct them to this site or to follow my Twitter.

But I’ve been resisting the idea.

Before anyone gets the idea that she’s heartless, or selfish and just wants me for herself… She’s not.  She’s actually giving to fault (special education teacher).   Which is what makes me wonder if I’M wrong on this.

But so far – I don’t think I am.  I’m an obscure writer within two already obscure fields (comics & theater).   Only a handful of people have wanted to contact me.  And unless (until?) I become someone like Grant Morrison or David Mamet, I don’t think the few people who want to dialog with me are really gonna cramp my style.  And I still feel nothing but gratitude for their interest.  I certainly don’t want to drive them away, even if it is in the form of ‘redirecting’ them to a less personal avenue.

Plus I’m still 95% certain that people aren’t reading this site.   (Not that I’ve promoted it.  Ever.)

Time will tell.  And if I do need to restructure my social networking, hopefully it will coincide with the implosion of the F-site-that-doesn’t-need-anymore-name-presence.

HEY!  If you haven’t been hipped to this yet, check out this art site that lets all sorts of artists (and, shall we say…aspiring artists) rework, re-imagine, and remix comic book covers.   It’s called COVERED, and for those of you who are artistically inclined, it’s an open submission!   Super cool! Pun intended!

SELFISHLY – if anyone is considering a project for COVERED, might I ask you to consider the cover to my forthcoming issue of Deadpool Team-Up #890 ?(!)   In addition to ‘our hero’, it includes Machine Man (Nextwave!) and Puppet Master.  Surely, that’s a lot to work with.

Now that we don’t live in the same city as eachother, Hey You Millionaires finally has a website! AND we’ve got a Twitter (if you’re into that sort of thing).
It’s not ghetto-@$$ tublr account, either.

HYM is my (award-winning) sketch comedy trio from Chicago with fellow ex-Clevelanders Jim Fath & John Bohan. The stuff’s good. So check it out.

**I should make the disclaimer up front that our comedy veers toward the dark end pretty often. So you know – NSFW, kids. **
