Thinking About Earthsea

By Mookie | April 25, 2023 | 0 Comments

I’m super late to the party on this series, but I only just completed the six book cycle of Ursula K. LeGuin’s EARTHSEA and it was one of the best things I have ever read. When I finished the final book I wept, not because it was sad, but because I didn’t want to leave … Continue reading “Thinking About Earthsea”

Wicked Nervous

This weekend I’ll be in the Artist Alley at WICKED COMIC CON for the first time. Unlike most of the conventions I do, which are either anime or generally nerdy cons, Wicked Comic Con is primarily a comic book show. You’d think I’d be more excited for that, given I’ve been doing comics independently for … Continue reading “Wicked Nervous”

That Freaking Kid

By Mookie | April 18, 2023 | 0 Comments

I wanted today’s blog entry to talk about exhibiting at Wicked Comic Con this weekend. I wanted to talk about comic book shows in general, and have it become a hopefully insightful reflection of comics as a genre and a medium. But no. Today’s blog entry is not about that because my wife and I … Continue reading “That Freaking Kid”

Friendship Breakups

By Mookie | April 13, 2023 | 0 Comments

Romantic breakups can be devastating. The heartbreak that one feels when a romantic relationship ends, whether mutually or suddenly, has been the stuff of stories for generations. But breakups of platonic friendships are equally devastating, and I feel like it doesn’t get mentioned enough. I’m not talking about the gradual growing-apart that many friendships fall … Continue reading “Friendship Breakups”

Looking Back on Anime Boston 2023

By Mookie | April 11, 2023 | 0 Comments

Normally when I write about my experiences at a past weekend’s convention I only talk about how much fun I had and how great it was to meet everyone and the great gratitude I felt towards everyone that came out to see me. This past Anime Boston had all of that, no question. The attendees … Continue reading “Looking Back on Anime Boston 2023”

What I’m Looking Forward To

This weekend begins my 2023 convention season with my return to Anime Boston. It’s a show that is near and dear to my heart. It’s the first convention I ever exhibited at, and returning to it whenever I can always feels like a homecoming. This year, like last year, Anime Boston will be my first … Continue reading “What I’m Looking Forward To”

An Odd Musical Journey

By Mookie | March 30, 2023 | 0 Comments

My friends and I play Pathfinder together multiple times per week, all remotely because we’re old nerds who have kids and we enjoy being social from a distance in our pajamas at night. We finished up our previous campaign and began a new one a few weeks ago. We settled on Strength of Thousands, about … Continue reading “An Odd Musical Journey”

An Eight Year Old Perspective

By Mookie | March 28, 2023 | 0 Comments

A few months ago someone I know on Twitter was having an exchange about the newest generation of Pokemon. Pokemon Scarlet & Violet had come out recently, so the games were fresh on everyone’s mind. This person I know is a little younger than I am (I’m in my forties) and had been into Pokemon … Continue reading “An Eight Year Old Perspective”

Yesterday the Kickstarter campaign to reprint Dominic Deegan: Oracle for Hire THE COMPLETE SERIES Volume 2 came to its conclusion after running for a month. It was successfully funded at the end of its fourth week and in its last few days it went over the funding goal. I am so incredibly floored by the … Continue reading “Over and Successful, Successful and Over”
