05:55 pm - Spider-man saves boy!
Apparently a Thai fireman dressed up as Spider-man to lure an autistic lad out of a burning building. Awwwww


Meanwhile, on the other side of town, a smarter, more literarily evolved boy was being rescued by a fireman dressed as Marjane's grandmother from Persepolis.

Young Adult Library Services Association voted Minister Jade one of their 2009 Great Graphic Novels for Teens. My very first non-sarcastic kudo.

11:08 pm - Wow
It's nice to witness the good kind of history for a change. Even my cracked, curmudgeony heart can't help but feel moved.

06:58 pm - Enough with the cutesy in-jokes in comics
Look, officer Kirby is arresting Senator Ditko! I sure hope District Attorney Bendis can get judge Steranko to keep him out of Warren Ellis Prison!

Ok we GET it. You're a geek. Now knock it off and write like a grown up.

06:22 am - Tchiki Tchiki!
I don't know what she's singing, but damn it's catchy. It's like the Livin' La Vida Loca of Romania. Or Bulgaria. Whatever. I'm gonna go break dishes.

10:08 am - I fear I don't have the facial hair to make it in comics
It's no secret that the facial hair mafia has its claws deep in the world of comics. And as a bald-faced lad I worry that my anti-facial hair stance may hurt me. There seem to be fewer and fewer places to hide from them-- the moon beards, the goatees, the soul patches, the full beards, and the sideburns that are long enough to be considered facial hair. For a while I considered Image Comics something of an oasis. With its proudly clean-shaven founders it seemed to be a bastion against the forces of facial folicles. Then HE arrived, Robert Kirkman, with his olive oil voice and bearded charm. Now I give it a month before Jim Valentino has a handlebar moustache and Erik Larsen is sporting a full Van Dyke. If push comes to shove I'm considering a Billy Wilder scenario where I masquerade as a female comics creator.
My name will be Lucious LaFoote.

10:04 pm - Pass the Formaldehyde
After a recent hearty meal a question popped into my head--how much would you have to eat to actually eat yourself to death? So I went and found out.

Turns out the rupture point for the average human stomach is about 4 quarts. Someone who suffers a stomach rupture generally dies within hours (but a few people have survived). But even if your stomach stays intact, severe overeating can bloat it to the point of restricting your breathing. So when it comes to eating yourself to death those are your two options--painful stomach explosion or suffocation. Just in time for the holidays!

05:03 pm - Well I made it onto Zuda
But the competition looks pretty solid, so I doubt I'll run away with it. I actually submitted this idea to Oni at the last New York Comicon, but after several months I assumed they weren't interested.  Now I hear that their turnover time for submissions is about six months.
Oops.. Sorry Oni.
