As mentioned over on the Vertigo blog, SCALPED #50 will feature a couple of special stories,"one detailing the long bloody history of scalping and scalphunters, and the other spotlighting the founding of the Prairie Rose rez as seen through the eyes of Dash Bad Horse’s ancestor, His Many Bad Horses." The second story will feature several guest artists, including Dean Haspiel, Denys Cowan, Igor Kordey, Jill Thompson, Timothy Truman and more. Really excited about how this one is coming together. Stay tuned.

Thoughts on the buying of an iPad 2

Yes, I finally gave in and joined the Cult of Apple yesterday, and I must say, waiting in line to buy one of these new-fangled Wonder Tablets was a rather strange experience. There were hundreds of people there, though I managed to beat the bulk of the crowd by showing up right before lunch (sometimes it pays to not have a proper job). I then sat there and wrote comics all day and rather shamefully hid my Android phone from sight, lest the surrounding Apple enthusiasts roust me from the line in disgust. A cheer went up when the doors finally opened at 5. People were clutching their tickets, eager to get inside. "Are you excited?!?" the lady at the door asked me, once I'd made it to the front of the line. "Yes," I replied, though I don't think I seemed nearly excited enough for her taste. Later as I was coming out, new Magic Tablet in hand, the people at the door shouted "Congratulations!" like I had just accomplished something of great importance inside. Instead of having simply purchased a rather pricey new toy for myself and my family, which is what I thought I had just done. I walked away wondering if perhaps it was true. If perhaps I now truly was a better person than most everyone else in the world, merely because I'd had five free hours on a Friday to sit in a lawn chair in front of a suburban shopping center.

My wife has assured me I am not.

As for the Wonderful New Magic Orgasm In A Box Machine, it is indeed pretty cool. Or at least I'm assuming it will be once I've figured out how to fucking use it.

Today I am writing

Though nothing as awesome as this:

Knee-deep in work today. Trying to finish up my second issue of a super-big super-secret new project. Look for an announcement soon, probably at Wonder Con.

It's Wednesday, so if you're going to the comic store look for PUNISHERMAX #11, the long-awaited conclusion to the "Bullseye" arc. It has blood and vomit and severed fingers and other such lovelieness.

Also, there's a new edition of my WHERE THE HELL AM I column over at CBR about how sometimes writing doesn't go as planned. It's called "Sometimes It Sucks," though hopefully the column itself doesn't.

Back to work now. Then a trip to the comic store. Then sleep and dreams of a new NFL CBA.

Apparently I made an appearance on the Marvel panel at Emerald City Comic Con.

New CBR column today, which talks about some of these degenrates:

Me, Tony Moore and Matt Fraction sometime in 2007

Lovestruck is an upcoming OGN by a couple of my fellow Kansas City comic creators, Dennis Hopeless and Kevin Mellon. You may remember my interview with Dennis in an installment of my Where the Hell Am I column a few months back. He and Kevin previously collaborated on Gearhead for Arcana. Anyway, be on the look-out for this. It appears to be awesome.
