On Comics: Serialisation

April 28th, 2010 | comics talk

Brief notes at my board about comics, serialisation, free gifts, etc:

…it’s the long haul of novel production, rather than the fast fiction of serialisation. I was talking to someone about 2000AD the other day, and how I’d love to be published weekly , and in Britain, and on newsagent shelves: but, of course, 2000AD doesn’t offer creator ownership (except in one or two very rare cases), and, frankly, it’s not like 2000AD does so much with its IP that there would be any financial gain in giving them the rights to new material…

Tallulah Louise

April 28th, 2010 | people I know, station ident

Please welcome to the world Tallulah Louise, daughter to Kelly Sue DeConnick and Matt Fraction, sister to Henry Leo and born into a circle of friends that wraps so far around the world that she’ll never know what it’s like to be lost.

Welcome to Earth, kid. It’s going to be fun.


Night Music: The Caretaker

April 28th, 2010 | music

"The Haunted Ballroom" is, to me, the very essence of the Caretaker project. The Caretaker has since sloughed his skin and moved on to become Leyland Kirby, whose SADLY THE FUTURE IS NO LONGER WHAT IT WAS has been mentioned here.
