It's a hard knock life

Morning, all!

Am at my day job, a lovely place that inspires me to absolutely nothing! My boss and my co-workers are great, though, and the boss knows my bent; that is, he knows I'm a comic book writer, and he is quite cool about letting me do some of my writing here.

I wanted to let you know about an interview I did recently with a Spanish blog; Toni Boix, a Spaniard, wrote to Moonstone, one of my publishers, to praise my work on Damnation Game, my two-part Phantom story. Moonstone forwarded the email to me, and I wrote Toni back, thanking him for the kind words. Toni then asked me if I would agree to an interview. Requests like these come very seldom for me, so I readily agreed.

The questions arrived via email, in Spanish, and I translated 'em, using Babelfish. I then responded in English, which Toni translated back into Spanish.

The interview, as well as a little bio of me, ran last week, and garnered a lot of favorable responses, including a couple people offering to head up a petition to DC demanding I write a Superman story, and some others sending the interview to Spanish publishers, in hopes of them reprinting some of my work in Spanish!

It was, and is, a great experience, and I'm very grateful to Toni for the interview and all that's resulted from it. You can find the interview at

along with my bio at

Keep in mind two things, though: 1. the interview and bio are in Spanish, so if you don't read it, you should translate it via Babelfish. 2. zona negativa, or negative zone, the blog, has some rather interesting and naughty pop up windows that show up at absolutely the worst time! So be very careful where and when you open these bad boys, okay?

I hope to have an English version of the interview up on the Hyperthetical site in the next couple weeks, for those of you interested enough to read it, but no so much that you'll tackle the espanol version.

That's all for now, excepting to tell you that you should definitely check out the links for the Hyperthetical site, as well as the blogs for my friends Antonio Maldonado and Juan Arevalo, found over to the right there.
