Blake’s Weekly Roundup: March to War

All this week I’ve continued the character countdown to my next novel, The Pyrite War, launching on September 10. Here’s who we’ve met this week…

Also last week…


Everything But Imaginary #475: Farewell, CBG

Magazines are going out of business left and right. And for the most part, it doesn’t faze me. But earlier today we got the news that the Comics Buyer’s Guide, the longest-running publication about comics, is going out of print for good. And for the first time, I realize just how great a magazine it really was…

Everything But Imaginary #473: Adios, 2012

It’s almost over, friends — one massively crazy year in comics and pop culture. And in this week’s Everything But Imaginary, I take a quick walk with you through the highlights and the lowlights of the year that was. Join me, won’t you?

Everything But Imaginary #471: Shopping at the Con

This year’s Wizard World New Orleans was held at the beginning of December… not the optimal time, perhaps, but it did allow something that I’ve never done before. At this year’s convention, I did some Christmas shopping. Here’s how to do it…

Everything But Imaginary #463: Digitize These Comics

Since my slow conversion to reading comics digitally began, I’ve kept a careful eye on the Comixology new release chart every week. I don’t use the digital store to buy new comics (although I do take advantage of the digital codes included with some releases), but I eagerly wait to see which back issues are pumped into the library every week. That said, of course, there are still a lot of comic book runs, story arcs, and series that are only partially available, aren’t available in a format I can read comfortably, or aren’t available at all. So that in mind, this week I’m going to toss out some suggestions for the comic publishers and copyright holders who are responsible for dropping this stuff in the Comixology store. I’m not promising I would rush out and buy all of these comics if you suddenly made them available… but I’d definitely consider it.

Everything But Imaginary #462: Six Comic Characters Who’d Make Good Replacement Replacement Refs

Fans of televised comedy, over the past few weeks, have found themselves in something of a golden age. There is a new troupe of clowns on TV that are goofier than the Marx Brothers, less logical than the Kids in the Hall, and more chaotic than Monty Python at their peak. You know them as the NFL Replacement Referees. But things are getting tense and something needs to be done. So this week, I suggest six comic characters who’d e better than the zebras we’ve got wandering around aimlessly right now.
