JCV in October Toy Collector Magazine

The October 2008 issue of Toy Collector Magazine includes my feature on ReelArt Studios and their incredible work in statues. Michael Hudson seems like a really good guy and was delight to interview.

TCM can be viewed online or downloaded in a print-quality PDF, both free of charge. It's a great publication for collectors and you should already be reading it!

Okay, so I like Christmas comics. Why the extra plug for this one? Because it has my first work for DC Comics in it, that's why.

"Chritmas with the Beetles"
is a Blue Beetle Christmas tale with not one, not two, but three (count 'em) Blue Beetles, written by me, and illustrated by Lee Garbett, whose work I love.

So, hey, any extra support you can give this issue is deeply appreciated. The Diamond Comic Distributors product code is OCT08 0145, and it's featured on Page 85 of the October 2008 PREVIEWS catalog.

Long time no posts?

Uh, yeah.

On the plus side, I'm actually okay, but it's been a weird year health-wise. Nothing majorly serious, but just about the time I'd get better from one thing the next one was on me. I finally decided that maybe some rest was in order, so I quit blogging and MySpacing and everything else except writing.

The big plus is that now I'm healthy again and have done a bunch of writing. So, hey, if you're actually still tuning in, thanks.
