* Ariana wants someone to pay me to edit a magazine so I don’t spend all day filling her email inbox with pointless ruminations about making a magazine. (I have this sort of proto-Alzheimers where I forget for hours or even days at a time that I can’t fund or resource a magazine, and end up daydreaming about the idea for extended periods before going oh shit.)
* Very saddened to hear of what I hope is simply an extended hiatus for DODGEM LOGIC. I admit to finding the first couple of issues pretty unreadable, but I loved that Alan was doing it, and I believe there’s a place for it in the world.
* I just filed the script for my third issue of SECRET AVENGERS with Marvel. I believe that’s issue 18 in the run? So I’m still ahead. Just about. In fact, a little better than that, because I put out the first five-page section for the artist about ten days ago (three pages of lead-up to a hellish double-page-spread that will probably kill him. I intend to leave six dead artists behind me on this book. McKelvie’s already a drooling cabbage after his issue. As anyone who met him at TCAF today can doubtless attest).
