it has been mentioned to me that there is a video interview of me at the San Diego con, giving out my usual pretentious baloney and as I blather on the camera is momentarily distracted by a costumed person somewhere behind me. I am reminded that my favourite costumed character of the 2008 con was this four legged chap done up as Spiderman. He reminds me of our Monty.
Joe McCulloch reviews 500 Essential Graphic Novels: The Ultimate Guide. :
"And, on a more subjective level, I am hesitant around any book of this type that fills its Nonfiction section with the likes of Cancer Vixen and Drawing Comics is Easy (Except When It's Hard) while ignoring the works of Eddie Campbell, and insists that Batman: Hush is among the most vital-for-some-reason works of the superhero genre as available in a bookshelf-ready format. But hey - this is truly, completely not a book aimed at me anyway."For the record, they did ask my permission to include images from my very first book and I said NO. Why they should choose that and ignore all that followed tended to raise my ire but I would have told them anyway, and I did, that anyone who thinks there are more than a few dozen so-called 'graphic novels' worth reading is an idiot.
