I needed some video game time. While I was playing, I listened to a 3-part PBS documentary on comic books and a couple of episodes of The Inexplicable Universe with Neil deGrasse Tyson on Netflix.

We live in a wondrous world.

for the webcomic Jeremy and I are working on (PHP and CSS can be tricky when working with someone else’s CMS), I started doing a little more research on webcomics in general.

I found a neat site simply titled MakingComics.com, which has loads of tips for doing webcomic stuff and a podcast with comic producers, like Trent Kaniuga (who did a neat indie comic back when he was 17 called CreeD).

All of that got me in the mood for going through my comic book collection (4 longboxes-worth). In flipping through them, I realized that I had an entire longbox that hadn’t been alphabetized into the rest of the collection. So, I just spent a few hours doing that. The reason it took so long is because I was flipping through the comics and listening to the Making Comics podcast as I went along.

I also had to take a dinner break, in which I watched the latest episode of “Comic Book Men” on the DVR.

I love comic books, if you couldn’t tell…

Excuse me while I nerd out for a moment, but Doctor Who and Star Trek are going to  officially cross over (albeit in comic form). There were plans to merge the two series into the same fictional universe back when Doctor Who relaunch and Enterprise was still on the air. The idea was to just plop the whole Star Trek timeline right into the muddy future of Doctor Who. This would have also put Star Trek indirectly in the same universe as Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, as its Douglas Adams was head writer on Who for years and considered them in the same universe (easter eggs are sprinkled through Who). Although we may never see it on screen, doing it in comic form is better than nothing and now Matt Smith gets to match wits with Patrick Stewart in some way.

Awesome sauce.

I’m going to switch to a different kind of writing for the next hour-and-a-half so that my voice will be solid for the open mic at 5:30pm.

I think I’ll move on to some comic book writing. It should be fun!
