        A couple of weeks ago, Greg and Jennifer Willits invited me on their Sirius/XM radio show to talk about Prime Baby, comic books in general, and faith. They're great people, and it was a lot of fun.

        They just posted a podcast of it to their website. Our interview starts

        I gotta be honest. I probably wouldn't have gone to see this one in the theaters anyway. I loved the original video game when I was a kid, but with three little kids of my own now, making the trek out to the local cineplex is a feat of scheduling acrobatics. My wife and I both have to be real

        05/24/10
        We're just over a month away from the opening of M. Night Shyamalan's The Last Airbender movie. Yay. Derek and I did a couple of posts on it last year.

        Here's a comic about why I'm not gonna see it, despite being a huge fan of the original animated series:

      • Eternal Smile Bookclub Discussion Questions
        05/18/10


        A friend was kind enough to suggest The Eternal Smile to her bookclub. She asked my wife for some discussion questions to help make her case.

        Here's what we came up with:

        ***

        1. In each story of The Eternal Smile, the main character makes a dishono

      • Smile!
        05/17/10


        There are some amazing graphic novel memoirs out there -- I think nowadays it's the second most popular comics genre after superheroes -- but very few of them are appropriate for middle schoolers. Raina Telgemeier's Smile fills that gap brilliantly.

        In her preteen y

        *Ta da!* Thanks to Ms. Robinson's class for providing this! I had a great time visiting you guys over Skype! You asked some awesome questions.

      • American Born Chinese is on the Kindle!
        05/10/10


        WHAAAT??? I don't own a Kindle, so I'm really curious as to how a color graphic novel looks on a black-and-white display. I noticed that American Born Chinese isn't the only GN that's been Kindle-ized. Anyone have a photo they can share?

      • Humble Comics Website Updated!
        05/08/10
        It's been, what, four YEARS since I've done that? I don't even have Dreamweaver installed anymore so I had to use a text editor.

        I've added The Eternal Smile, Prime Baby, and Animal Crackers to the Comics page. I've also updated the About page. If you find any

      • Indonesian Smile
        05/06/10


        I got copies of the Indonesian translation of The Eternal Smile a while ago, but I didn't flip through it until just now. They did a beautiful job on the production values-- it's kinda crazy seeing your own work in a language you don't understand. Ever wonder what a spla
