The Comics I’m Re-reading When I Get Home

Ravings

By the time you’re reading this, I’ll have ended my three-year stint in Fresno, California and be venturing toward a new adventure in St. Paul, Minnesota. I always get quite nostalgic when I leave a place, and I’m guessing I’ll be feeling even more nostalgic by the time I arrive at my parents’ home in Elkhorn, WI (a stopover on the way to Minnesota).

To fuel that nostalgia even further, I plan to re-read a BUNCH of comics that have been sitting at my parents’ place, waiting for me to return for the last three years. You’ll see some pretty apparent connections between these books – each of them includes returns, remembrances, and new beginnings. These are the sorts of stories I’m in the mood for at this moment.

#Batober Is Here!

This year, my day job asked me to participate in #Inktober – the annual drawing challenge that asks artists to sketch something each day in October, following a list of prompts.

At first, I felt like I wouldn’t be able to think up enough original ideas to be able to sketch something each day – but then I remembered that I didn’t have to! Following the lead of Daredevil and Captain America artist Chris Samnee, I made my #Inktober into #Batober. And I’ve been having a blast knocking out a quick Bat-sketch each day.

The Issue of Batman: Gotham Adventures That Shaped My View on Guns

Re-reads

As I’ve gotten older, my views on certain issues have evolved. But despite the fact that I’ve taken a “learn to hunt for food” class, shot target practice with my father- and brother-in-law, and cheered that same father-in-law on in quick draw competitons, my views on guns will never, ever outgrow Batman: Gotham Adventures 9.
