andrewihla: Now rebloggable, by flattering request. mindless-entertainment asked: Hey Andrew! You do dialogue really well. How do you build a good conversation and a character’s speech pattern? Thanks, dude! That really means a lot. I’ve been working on making my scripts less talky, but it’s nice…
koltron asked: Hey Ziah, I think that Scott Prowler is on the up and up except he is wrong about Moon Knight because seriously Moon Knight is just magic crazy Batman. Also Ziah, what superhero would you pick to be the Pope?
Anonymous asked: DEAR ZIAH, My name is Scott Prowler. Please stop talking about me because it is a creepy and also Moon Knight is the best superhero. Thanks sincerely, Scott Prowler
koltron asked: BOO PROWLER

So, AOL pulled the plug on Comicsalliance over the weekend, and I’m still having trouble making sense of it. CA was the reason I’m involved in any way in the comics community: if a writer at CA liked something or someone, then I knew I should check out more of their work. Laura Hudson made me re-examine my ideas on gender and sexualization in comics, and made me cackle with her...
It's Monday, you know the drill by know

koltron asked: Tainted Love?

Answers may not be as funny as I think they am.
Comics? Weekly? Gasp!
I was waiting to post the new CTafBW so that my editor could get done editing it, but her internet was screwy and it didn’t end up getting saved. So here’s the unedited version before it gets super out of date.

koltron: A action sci-fi minicomic - “Turtle Run” by Ziah Grace and Nick Rockel and a sci-fi mystery “ERAS: Fung” by Luke Herr and Brian Wolf There are 6 days left for the minicomic Kickstarter! Ziah is doing some crazy comic action with Turtle Run that is illustrated by the ineffable Nick Rockel and I am blessed to be working with Brian Wolf on our sci-fi/magic/horror/mystery comic ERAS:...
The Dumbest Idea Luke's Ever Had
Luke: I am gonna message Ari and we will form the Ziah Revenge Squad
I’m trying to write a wider range of articles than my usual weekly comics reviews and things that no one gets to see for possible release way down the lane. Anyway, I saw Troll Hunter and dug it, and had some thoughts about it here. Give it a try, I’m feeling some things out, and I think there was more to the movie than just what I put.
Little reminder: the comic kickstarter I’m doing with Luke Herr and Brian Wolf and Nick Rockel has a little under two weeks left. It’s going to be a very pretty book, both of them, since Luke and I managed to snag some artists that are way too talented.
Trying some Thing out
There’s a new Clever Titles are for Better Writers that’s a little late because my editor apparently has a life. I’m trying some new things out, including Bearwatch. Go read it or something.

I’m back to writing round-ups with a double-sized, two-weeks worth of comics post. I’m usually pretty critical of my own work, (and others, HEYO), but I think a couple of these turned out okay.
bigredrobot asked: What is your favorite Kevin James movie?
koltron asked: "New Mayor Herr Sentences Thief and Criminal Ziah Grace To Do Pull Ups Till He Dies"
koltron asked: Pictures. Pictures of Spider-Man.

benito-cereno: As you may have heard, the papal conclave began in earnest today, with 115 cardinals gathering to elect a successor to the recently retired Benedict XVI. I’m not sure why they’re bothering; we’ve known who the next pope will be since 1595. In fact, he’s not only the nextpope, he’s also the last

Ask Me Some Questions
I might have some answers. They might be dumb! Wouldn’t that be fun?
New (late) and also short Clever Titles is up. Recommend some new comics to buy, I only bought two last week.
bigredrobot asked: Have you read STORM DOGS yet?
Hawkguy’s a great comic, The Massive is boring, and I have some problems with Uncanny Avengers. Check it out, comics round-up.

koltron: Check out some of her Nerdcenaries stuff in that link Ari is one of my good friends, and a way better writer than me. Her Suicide Squad reviews are probably the best use of your time, unless you have to save a fire truck from a burning building or something.
