New Releases

Just a few quick notes while I take a breath from being buried in work (post-vacation overload...gah)

Mike "Gabriel" Krahulik from Penny Arcade was asked to do a cover for the comic version of The Talisman (King/Straub). This is win on so many levels...it was a great book, it will make a great comic, and Gabe is a great artist. Great, great, and great. Not much else to say. I don't read many comics (Roman Dirge and Jhonen Vasquez are about it), but I think I need to pick this one up, it's been years since I read The Talisman (don't recall that I ever got around to the sequel...Black House? Dark House? Something like that...it was a kind of allusion to the Dark Tower world, I remember)

Also, KC Shaw just released her book Jack of All Trades today. Check out details on her blog...congrats to KC!

The Talisman... I haven't read that yet. Should I read the comic now, or should I read the book first?

I don't think the comic comes out until later this year...and you can't ever go wrong with a King/Straub book.
