Legion of Damn!

Back in the 1990s, when I was a flat-dwelling San Francisco Gen X slacktivist too busy falling in futile love with lesbians and smoking speed out of broken lightbulbs to do something as mundane as, ugh, watch TV, there was a live action series inspired by the X-Men comics I'd loved as a kid. Apparently, [...]

The Devil’s Got A Free Hand!

As I further contemplate the turning of the screw that is achieving a half century of life, I find myself wanting to give away my earthly possessions--well, some of them anyway; definitely not the ones I use daily, like my car or any of my flatscreens or personal electronics--so I figure it's a fine time [...]

The Villain’s Sidekick For Free

Full disclosure: I'm about to have one of those milestone birthdays this month, where I find myself a lot older than the younger version of me ever thought I'd live to be. So in honor of that, I guess, I'm offering a couple of my books free this month over on Amazon, beginning with the [...]

Review: The Regional Office is Under Attack!

In a publishing world where we authors of a certain stripe are frequently told that there's just no market for superheroic prose, it's both heartening and frustrating when a work like this one manages to wend its way through the traditional distribution channels. Heartening because, like Soon I Will Be Invincible or The Violent Century, it's another testament to [...]

Secret History: A Review of Lavie Tidhar’s “The Violent Century”

I know I’m a good writer. I’m also long-resigned to the truth that I’ll never be a great writer. Whatever literary merit my pulpy seriocomic adventure stories contain is largely the byproduct of having ingested enough canonically “great” literature that nanoscopic slivers of same will occasionally, mostly accidentally, sneak in between the many overwrought adjectives and [...]

Luke Cage’s Symbol of Justice

Captain America has his shield. Thor's got his hammer. Iron Man's got his full-body armor. Not just weapons that they wield, but iconic symbols of their mythic power. At first glance, all Luke Cage seems to have is superhuman strength, bulletproof skin, and some pretty cool street clothes. And while some purist naysayers may not [...]

Spider-Woman and the Margins of the Marvel Multiverse

  The unlikely source of today's inspired ramblings is a comic book character I've rarely thought twice about, except whenever Comixology puts some of her books on sale and I see a writer's or artist's name attached that piques my interest. I'm talking, of course, about your friendly neighborhood Spider-Woman. I don't know much about [...]

How Captain America Became My Higher Power

In honor of Civil War's release on May 6th, I'm reposting an entry I wrote for my own blog when Winter Soldier came out two years ago. It may not be as timeless as Cap himself, but it's as applicable as ever, I think. "I'm ready to make it, don't care 'bout the weather Don't [...]

The First Taste is Free

Update: It being my birthday and all, I figured it's only right to announce that The Devil's Right Hand will release on February 29th, just in time for Leap Day. Makes a great gift for that special someone you only think about once every four years... Available for pre-order right here. Just over two weeks ago, I typed [...]
