I’m preparing to list two cool items on eBay. Both are musts for the crazy over-the-top Ted Rall fans…if there are such a thing. The first is a highly limited (under 30 copies), numbered, copy of the rare hardback edition of “Wake Up, You’re Liberal!” (2004). I just found the box under a bunch of […]
Since my last entry was about abstract and out-there stuff like magic, I thought i’d be down to earth this time. In comics, when you work with another writer (I haven’t done this much, but I know people who do) you get a detailed description of each page and each panel of whatever you’re working […]
It’s here: a new Animated Editorial Cartoon with David Essman sending up the stupidest aspect of Obama’s lame-ass healthcare fiasco: fining people who don’t buy private insurance. Enjoy! ObamaCare Made EZ
It’s been a while, but David Essman and I are back with a new animated editorial cartoon! “ObamaCare Made E-Z” sends up the more ridiculous aspects of this lame attempt at “reform.” Probably Monday.
I’m trying to raise travel expenses to go back to Afghanistan via Kickstarter. I need $25,000 (covers part of the travel, that’s all). So far, 41 backers have put up $3,355. So I need $21,645 more. My plan is to return to the same places I saw in 2001, now under control of the neo-Taliban, […]
As grim accounts of the earthquake in Haiti came in, the accounts in U.S.-controlled state media all carried the same descriptive sentence: “Haiti is the poorest country in the Western hemisphere…” Gee, I wonder how that happened? You’d think Haiti would be loaded. After all, it made a lot of people rich. How did Haiti […]
Congress might tax bankers…but they probably don’t need to worry.
Specifically, they rave about his Mystery of Mary Rogers Book: “Roughly once a year throughout the ’00s, Rick Geary delivered another of his carefully researched, beautifully drawn “Treasury Of Victorian Murder” books (or lately, “Treasury Of XXth-Century Murder”). All are essential reading for comics fans and history buffs alike, but The Mystery Of Mary Rogers […]
On Greg Houston‘s Vatican Hustle: “The first comic in a long time to make me laugh in public. If you do not enjoy the non sequiturs of Family Guy, you will want to avoid this book. Everyone else is in for a treat of the lowbrow type. Vatican Hustle is one of those comics that […]
Here’s a fun essay I wrote for Graphic NYC about the movie ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA and how it influenced my book, BROWNSVILLE. “Brownsville, the graphic novel I created for NBM Publishing with Jake Allen, counts influences from mafia films and novels, history and transcripts, and comic book creators ranging from Will Eisner […]
