I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys. ~Charles Dickens

Peace on Earth – Good Will to All Men, Women and God’s Creatures.

And a Happy New Year, too!

This is where the magic happens

‘She is a riddle, wrapped within an enigma, wrapped within a mystery.’

Or so say the guys over at Comickaze Comics who took this picture on Free Comic Book Day:

Spinner-Rack Girl
‘She showed up once for Free Comic Book Day and we haven’t seen her since.’

Which begs the question…where have you gone Spinner-Rack Girl?

For those of you who read Comic Culture Warrior on the Comics Waiting Room site, thanks for checking in. For those who don’t, what are you waiting for? Go ahead, we’ll wait…

You’re back? Alright!

This blog will serve as a companion to the column, allowing me to share some insight as to how and why I wrote each column, as well as give me a chance to rant on some things that I couldn’t fit in.

Each week in my CCW column, I try to come up with my own take on an issue in the world of comic culture. The initial notion then gets fleshed out into a coherent idea, and then into a full-blown column. It’s quite a challenge and I’m sure there are some – ok a lot of – folks who say I fail in my attempts. But there is a process in all this and sometimes I’ll have some random thoughts or incomplete ideas that just don’t make the cut. Also, quite often, I come up with something that just doesn’t fit the theme of the site.

In the interests of sharing some insight into my ‘process’ this is where many of these ideas and notions will get to see the light of day. I’m going to be honest about where the ideas come from, why I expressed that particular opinion in that column and hopefully stir up some conversation.

So please, after you read the column and take a gander at what’s on this blog too, feel free to comment and get the conversation going!

See you in the funny pages,
