Jeffery Klaehn has a blog, wherein he has posted excerpts of interviews with a number of comics folks, including Fraction and me. I can’t remember how long ago we did this interview, but I sound horribly pretentious. (I totally name-dropped Neil Gaiman, btw. As in, “Neil Gaiman once told me…” You can go ahead and shoot me int he head right now.) (Not that I don’t adore Gaiman — I do, absolutely. But really. That was just tacky.)
Fraction comes off far better and, as always, his interview is worth your time. I’m thinking in particular of social fiction and science fiction as illustrated by Warren Ellis’ HELLBLAZER piece “Shoot” and TRANSMETROPOLITAN #40.
(It’s a little beside the point, but if I haven’t said so recently, I’ll say so now: I remain in awe of Ellis’ talent.)
Anyway, the blog is here:
Well, we’re here. The first year that we haven’t gotten cards or gifts or made plans. We talked about it, assured one another that we were still in love but teething and work and errands and sick dogs and travel and mouse attacks and taxes and, I dunno, household chores or something have all conspired to leave us too tired to make a fuss. Right now, anniversary plans just feel like one more thing on the already novella-length to do list.
Despite my usual lack of filter, I do see (I can be taught, it seems) that it would be inappropriate to go on at length or in detail about how much you mean to me, how very proud I am of you or how catching your eye across the room still makes me giggle like a little girl who kicks her toes in the dirt as she lifts her skirt to cover her eyes.
So I won’t do that. I’ll just say that I love you. And thank you for picking me.
…at FanExpo Canada. I don’t know who took the photo, but David sent it to me. Thanks, David!
Fraction and I are headed to Charlotte tomorrow for Heroes Con! Woo hoo! If you’re going to be there, please stop by and say hello. We’ll have books and buttons (W.A.S.T.E. and E.M.P.I.R.E., but we’re running low, so you might want to swing by early for those) and possibly even some Casanova t-shirts if I can twist Fraction’s arm. (Wish me luck.) Details on Upcoming. Details on Heroes Official Site. Oh! And come to our panel, please!A couple of other tidbits you might have missed:
