After my last appearance on the We Talk Comics Podcast, one of the regulars, Mo Kristiansen, asked if I would be interested in doing some "WeViews" for their site. It was a relatively new feature giving text reviews (hence the great WeViews name) provided by the great guys at We Talk Comics. I looked over their list and was going to contribute a WeView of the finale of Dynamite's comic The Librarians (based on the TNT television show). Sadly, the day I was going to read this issue and write up the review was the day my father passed away. After a few months, one of us reached out (I don't remember if it was me or Mo) and I finally got to do a review for the site. The Librarians had been out so long (so long the show had been canceled) that I decided to do a review of IDW's Bubba Ho-Tep and the Cosmic Blood Suckers #1. I don't know if it was me or Bubba but it was well received and Mo gave me the great news that it was the most viewed of the WeViews. So a month later I dove in and tackled another review. This time I discussed the merits of the Archie Comics Archie's Super Teens Versus Crusaders #1. (I mentioned both of those reviews in previous blog entries).
Several weeks later I did three more: Aftershock's historical fantasy ClanKillers #1, Black Mask's brilliant monster series Breathless #1 and #2 and IDW's latest Star Trek tie-in, Star Trek: The Next Generation - Terra Incognita #1. Those last three have gone up over the course of the last two weeks. I'm really enjoying the new gig and hope I get the chance to do more. If you are a comic fan who has to be selective about what they pick up, I hope I can earn your trust.

I highly encourage checking out the podcast. The guys are great and put on really fun shows. I can't say it enough about them. It really is like hanging out with your friends at the comic shop, it doesn't matter if they are simply debating issues or doing professional interviews writers and artists in the industry. Please go here to check out their most recent shows.
Oh, and yes, I do realize I misspelled Barclay's name as Barkley. I actually do know better. So please don't revoke my nerd card...
