fan club update

A major, major update!

If you’re an old reader, you may have noticed a change in the site design last weekend (you may also have been notified by email). Not only have their been cosmetic changes but there have been big changes under the hood too. Following is a rundown of what changed – and why – but some major personal news first. Guess who has ADHD? THIS GUY (just imagine me gesticulating with my thumbs). I realized in November that I’ve had (been?) ADHD my whole life (details will be forthcoming in the form of journal comics). This has been clinically confirmed and … Continue reading

So I started teaching improv comedy to kids…

My foray into improv comedy at the Tampa Bay Comic Con has been quite the unexpected detour. I enjoyed it so much that I joined a couple of meetups to scratch the itch.

Amitabh Bachchan – the comic book superhero?!

Apparently, my childhood is incomplete because I completely missed a comic book starring Amitabh Bachchan. This man was my idol back when I watched Indian movies – and I only watched his movies, for the most part. I figure that I missed it because it sold out and TV was very limited there in the 80s and it was likely not considered news-worthy. Here’s how the idea was hatched: Adventures of Amitabh Bachchan was the result of an incident that IBH publisher Pammi Bakshi witnessed while she was standing in the balcony of her flat (or so the story goes). Bakshi … Continue reading

Fried Cheese Balls featured in the racial & cultural diversity in comics blog!

Much thanks to Super Heroes in Full Color for featuring my comic on their blog devoted to racial and cultural diversity in comic books (and derivative works). The world is way, way, way more diverse than the mass media would have you believe – it’s good to see people trying to make a difference.
