11/10/10 Dropping In On The Neighbors


I spent Tuesday afternoon with Mike Peterson, who I’ve been working with for 10 years doing serial stories for newspapers (tell your local paper to purchase these stories! I earn royalties!). Mike is lots of fun, he’s a witty smart newspaperman. And when I took him to the top of Greenfield’s poet’s seat tower, his first question was, “so… did you used to bring beer up here?”

Anyhow, he interviewed me at NEWW talking about comics, and the video is imbedded in his blog about comics (which is an excellent read) at StripOfTheDay.

Hope you have a great day. And I mean that. Truly.


  1. Parents, man…I’m pretty sure this is how my dad would like to introduce me to people, and I don’t even run around the galaxy trying to undermine the status quo (much). Also, I just love how nonchalant the neighbors are about the whole thing. Does this happen often?

    You just wait. One of these days Gurf is going to bring home a girl (female?) to meet his mother. THEN the compliments will REALLY fly.

    “Oh, Gurfiston! What did I ever do to you that you should want to kill me in this way!”

    (After mispronouncing her name for the fifth time in as many minutes) “You have a lovely name, by the way. I’m sure you and Gurfiston will be very happy together. He’s a disappointment to his parents too.”

    And this is before she even starts in on how can Gurf expect this girl to make him as happy as his mother does. Oy, veh…

    That last line has been a favorite of mine since I first read it. I think of it often when my jackass…er, lovely and wonderful teenage sons do something…er, lovely and wonderful I guess? Fellow parents, you know what I’m talking about. 😛
