Notes From the Publisher
-by Andrew Goletz
Quite an interesting couple of months we’ve had here at
the old site. We had our difficulties, but I think it’s safe to say
(crossing fingers) that it should be smooth sailing from here on
out. **Note From The Webmistress**
We have two new columns beginning this week. Due to
popular demand (I can’t believe it, either), our own Jester from Crazy
Wisdom will be spinning off into his own column called ‘What’s
the Use of Getting Sober’. We’re also happy to announce that
Victor Destefano is making ‘Hamburglar’s
Eye View’ a regular part of the GHM columns.
What I’m most excited about (besides taking time off) is
the premier of Hanzo,
GHM’s first online comic (displayed in the Art Gallery section), created
by John Thayer Hill. The story will speak for itself. I encourage everyone
to read the first look at this incredible work before you end up having to
pay for it when a company snatches John up.
02.02.01 -- Comic Book Galaxy (www.comicbookgalaxy.com) announces a new, 35-week feature focusing on one of the most controversial comic book storylines in the history of mainstream comics.
THE LIFE OF REILLY will look at the past, present, and possible future of Ben Reilly, the clone of Peter Parker that dominated the Spider-titles for much of the latter half of the 1990s and was perhaps the most controversial Spider-Man storyline ever.
The Galaxy's ANDREW GOLETZ (creator of GrayHaven magazine at www.grayhavenmagazine.com) will co-write the column with former Marvel Comics writer and editor GLENN GREENBERG. In a week by week analysis, they'll review the entire Clone Saga, talk to the creators behind the comics and look at why Ben Reilly is so well-remembered by his fans. THE LIFE OF REILLY is not just a look back or review of the issues, but an in-depth analysis of the storyline complete with commentary by the people in the trenches at the time.
So here’s what else we have going on:
An Interview with Andi
Watson, creator of the best mini-series of 2000, ‘Breakfast After
An Interview with Mike
Pawuk, the innovative librarian who’s come up with a fantastic idea
you must read about
The first installment of Jester’s ‘What’s
the Use of Getting Sober’
Another heaping, helping of wackiness with the latest Crazy
Wisdom in our Humor section
Tom Grozan’s 3rd
Volume of ‘Ear Candy’ in the Music section
Your first look at Hanzo
And much, much more…
So click around and check it out. And don’t forget to
let us know what you think!
Note: As of this update, I’ll be taking a leave of
absence to concentrate on our new baby. I’m as excited as one would
imagine and I want to devote some time away from here to concentrate on
the family a little more. It’s not a permanent leave, however. I intend
to be back, pulling the strings before May, if all goes well.
In my absence, webmistress, Carrie Michael and columnist/diplomat,
Barry Wolborsky will be running the show. Wish them well. They’ll need
