Out this week: WILDCAT!

I'm really jazzed about this one. JSA CLASSIFIED has just about worn Wildcat out, but I really think this arc is different.

The intention was to do something different, anyway. Per Dan DiDio.

Since it's out this week, I think it's probably all right to flash some interior art. Check it:

Casey Blue solicited for May (Wildstorm)

I'm guessing some people find this one surprising.

It's been a lot of fun, though. Hope to get on the PR wagon soonishly.

Pops mulls Cedar Crest...

The Wichita Eagle featured an article this morning on my father's potential run for governor:

Something I learned: The Eagle's "comments" section is even worse than Newsarama's. I don't mind comments sections, but they should really be separated from main articles. It's very easy to lose the gist of whatever you've just read when you're immediately confronted by angry little people with too much time on their keyboards...

I'm not sure how I feel about this idea, to be honest. I think a lot depends on what happens with the presidential election. There's a strong chance sitting governor Kathleen Sebelius, with whom my father served as Lt. Governor for the first four years of her administration, could end up in Washington should Obama be elected. That would mean she'd be leaving office early, which could shake up the playing field.

But the main reason my father chose not to run again with Kathleen was to spend time with my mother. With her passing away in September, he has the time, and he's never lacked for work ethic.

I dunno. Part of me thinks retiring to the lake sounds more appealing, but it's his life, and someone needs to beat Sam Brownback.

Here Comes the Sun

Picking up the kids today, "Here Comes the Sun" came on the radio, which prompted me to dig out Abbey Road and give the track a closer listen.

That track may be one of the Beatles' most immaculate productions. It's just a beautiful slice of folk pop, which lots of stuff going on that never threatens to overwhelm the tender sentiment of the song.

In fact, Abbey Road as a whole (with the possible exception of "Maxwell's Silver Hammer," which might feel out of place anywhere) is amazing sounding. Nothing dated or forced about the sound.

It's a little depressing, really...makes one wonder what potential still existed for the George Martin/Beatles collaboration when they split.

Thank You, Mystery Girl...

Yesterday I noticed a neighbor with GIANT Romney signs pasted to his back deck (which rises some twenty feet above his fenceline, highly visible as you enter our development). I thought idly about tracking down an Obama sign, and wondered who would throw such noisy support behind such a sinking ship.

So this afternoon I'd driven about forty yards down my street when I noticed a girl I'd never seen before walking toward me holding an Obama sign.

When I was about thirty feet away, she held it up over her head, and I gave her a big thumb's up.

When I got back home it was planted in my front yard.

That was easy. And a bit weird.

Office Space

To fill space with something other than ads, I threw together this little tour of my (always cluttered) office, and Steven whipped it into a pleasing shape.

This'll appear in the back of HAWAIIAN DICK #3 (out soonishly). Click for a bigger look:
