Songs I Heard Too Many Times

I was in Northampton, MA, this weekend at this little club/bar called The Basement where they play an awesome mix of music. Seventies funk, girl groups, Studio One reggae, doo wop, Del Shannon, great stuff. One of the songs they played while I was there was Popcorn by Hot Butter, which almost immediately brought me […]

Mijeong, a Korean manhwa,  got a couple of reviews recently: “very thought provoking. It touches on some serious issues and treats them with respect” The Feminist Review “The stories in Mijeong work like poetry, evoking senses, feelings, that neither the words nor the images alone accomplish. Breathtaking artwork.” New City (Chicago alt. paper)

Greg McElhatton gives THE BIG KAHN a kickass review here. “The Big Kahn is easily Kleid’s best work to date as a writer; it’s clever and gripping, and there are a couple of turns in the story as it heads towards the conclusion that genuinely surprised me even as they still made sense. This feels […]

In the initial delivery of my new book THINGS UNDONE, this was the first cover I pitched to Terry.  He hated it…and yelled and cursed…and I think I even cried a little. What really happened was Terry didn’t think it worked. He didn’t understand the little characters that were following our main character Rick Watts. […]

Words for Big Kahn

More reviews for The Big Kahn: “This story moves in unexpected directions in a quiet and real-feeling way. This is not a sensationalistic story that might appear on a cable network; instead, Kleid allows the characters sufficient time and space to move in their own interesting directions.” Comics Bulletin “Well written, well drawn, with characters […]

It’s close. The book is about to come out. It’s really close. I don’t know the exact date, but Terry tells me it will be out before SPX at the end of next month (which I will be at as well). So it’s coming. I kind of feel like I’ve been talking about this book […]

Forever Nuts is getting press not only for its latest Bringing Up Father collection but also for Happy Hooligan. Andrew “Capt. Comics” Smith of the Scripps-Howard newspaper chain says: “Bringing Up Father” was a much copied strip, not only for its simple and engaging premise, but also for creator George McManus’ beautiful art. This is […]
