McFarlane MFTThe devil's in the details. Ain't that the truth? It's also the name of the recently released collection of Todd McFarlane's art from his 3-decade-spanning career. I was excited when Image announced the illustrated biography of Todd McFarlane in hardcover. Not so excited about the price tag. I got $99.00 and Tood McFarlane ain't one of them. So, I instead opted for the more affordable $39.00 softcover. Not that the hardcover wouldn't have been worth it. I just po'.

MAGIK MFTSPOILERS here and there.

As a result of the fallout from Avengers vs. X-Men and perhaps an answer to DC's much ballyhooed New 52, The Uncanny X-Men received a new number one and a bold new direction. Again. A new direction, with a new roster and new creative team seems old hat by now for the X-Men. So, here we go again with Uncanny X-Men with Brian Michael Bendis writing, not so fresh feeling considering his lengthy stint on Ultimate X-Men and Chris Bachalo on art again. No complaints there, as he is always a welcome addition; however, I would love to see him spread his wings and maybe get back to his indie roots. (But, hey, if I got to draw X-Men, they'd have to claw me off the book with a pair of razor sharp adamantiums.)

The Reason for DragonsWelcome back to The PREVIEWS Party, the blog that looks at the coolest, new comic books and graphic novels available to pre-order from this month’s Previews magazine.

In this month’s PREVIEWS magazine, Archaia showed off a new graphic novel called The Reason for Dragons. This original story, written by Chris Northrop and illustrated by Jeff Stokely, promises to capture the imagination of readers much like the films The Neverending Story, E.T., and The Goonies did. I sat down with Chris Northrop to talk about what inspired this cool new tale about knights and dragons in our modern world.

Khaos Komix*Please note that the subject matter discussed in the interview contains adult content and is for mature readers only.


One of my favorite webcomics, Khaos Komix, recently came to a planned end, and I felt it was the best time to find out just what goes on in the mind of its creator, Tab Kimpton.  Much of the webcomic has a personal significance for Kimpton, given the information I’ve gleamed in conversation and looking on the comic’s website, as the subject matter has touched both myself and my fellow FBCer, Kristine Chester, deeply; however, because of said subject matter and the artistic style used, a lot of the webcomic is considered mature content and not geared toward children, so be careful when reading it.  Now, thanks to some friendly emails between the two of us, I was able to have an interview with Kimpton about Khaos Komix and other ideas.
