Here’s what I learned about adapting stories to comics. You have a bunch of numbered dots, right, and you can tell that you’re supposed to draw a dragon. If you have a million numbered dots, you can miss a few and still get a pretty righteous dragon. If you have only a hundred dots, you’ll be lucky if you get a salamander. If it’s somewhere in-between, you may miss some of the flames, but most people will be able to tell it’s an awesome dragon…except for the person who laid out the dots.
Filing this away for future reference.

Steve Murray insufferable and 'very proud' after picking up prestigious Will Eisner award
The newspaper I’ve worked at for the last twelve years finally outed me as “Chip Zdarsky” with this ludicrous article.
National Post illustrator and failed Toronto mayoral candidate Steve Murray received an enormous boost to his already-inflated ego this past weekend, scooping up an illustrious Will Eisner award
I just fucking can’t with this man. I Canadan’t.

HI I QUIT LIFE
Welp, I just checked out the website. These people need, at a minimum, Wikipedia.

It’s not just a graphic novel… It’s a way to teach.

Can I just say that I love the way we’re filling the spaces between the stories in this book? Starting next week I’ll be posting a little bit on the stories and creators over on the Colonial Comics blog: http://colonialcomics.tumblr.com/

It is amazing to me that a mid-July weekend that follows a PLANET OF THE APES sequel that never had a chance of pulling in close to $50-mill in its second weekend is populated with Purge II, Planes II, and Sex Tape. It’s equally amazing to me that Disney didn’t see this and move Guardians of the Galaxy up two weeks so that its second weekend was just Hercules and Lucy instead of having TMNT in its second weekend. I’m assuming something got shifted, right? Was this supposed to be Finding Dory weekend or something?

Went and saw Jurassic Park 3D this weekend (I have never seen it in theaters and it was a blast)
Thought of how different the movie could seem from another perspective.
