Born Dead, Still Weird: The Spooky World of Cartoonist Gahan Wilson
Huffington Post - about 3 years
Is a person born 'weird' or is it about how we grow up and the things we experience? I believe being weird is partly about how you see the world. Ever since I could remember, I would look at my dad's collection of books growing up. He'd have everything from H.P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, Manly Wade Wellman, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Stephen King, he had a lot. All these books for the most part had really surreal and crazy looking artwork, especially all the Lovecraft stuff. I'd never know what the books were about but I would love to just look at how bizarre and spooky those images were. I'm not sure I remember the first time I saw a book simply titled I Paint What I See by Gahan Wilson but I know once I did, I could never get it out of my head even today. All images courtesy of Steven Charles-Jaffe and Gahan Wilson Unlike all the other books that were mainly prose and were too complicated for a small kid to read, this book featured grotesque and terrifying one page gags. It w ...

Powerful Coalition Opposes NCLB Waivers in New Jersey
Education Week - about 4 years
A remarkable coalition of individuals and organizations, many of them with deep roots in the African American and Latino communities, is calling upon the Department of Education to abandon plans to implement new policies associated with NCLB waivers in the state of New Jersey. In the past, some leaders in the African American and Latino communities have supported NCLB, believing it would result in improved outcomes for students. The Department of Education has relied on this support to press its case that closing schools on the basis of test scores is in the interest of students. This letter reveals a different stance on the part of these leaders. Rosie Grant, Program Director at the Paterson Education Fund, explained their stance in a press release issued two weeks ago: We understand that the waivers were an effort to free states from the impossible targets set by NCLB. Unfortunately, here in New Jersey, it is clear that the NCLB waiver is being used by the NJDOE ...

HLT uncovers a gem with 'Trip to Bountiful'
Blue Ridge Now - about 4 years
Hendersonville Little Theatre’s presentation of Horton Foote’s “The Trip to Bountiful” adds another gem to HLT’s achievements. Albert Horton Foote Jr. (1916-2009) was an American playwright and screen writer, perhaps best known for his 1962 film “To Kill a Mockingbird” and 1983’s “Tender Mercies.” The author adapted “The Trip to Bountiful” for the stage from the original PBS production of 1953. It ran as an award-winning play on Broadway and was made into an academy award-winning film by the same name in 1985. Foote is often referred to as the “American Chekhov,” and the story and characters of this play, considered one of his best, pull at your heart strings. Sensitively directed by HLT veteran Sy Berg, the play has you involved from the beginning to the end. In the story, Carrie Watts lives with her son, Ludie, and his shrewish wife, Jessie Mae, in a small, two-room apartment. Carrie and Jessie Mae are at each other’s throats constantly. Jessie Mae is annoyed by her mother-i ...

Comic Review: Rachel Rising #7
Obsessed with Film - What Cultur - over 4 years
Book: Rachel Rising # 7 Written By: Terry Moore Pencils By: Terry Moore Publisher: Abstract Studio Release Date: OUT NOW IN STORES & DIGITAL DOWNLOAD (VIA COMIXOLOGY) Rating:  After the events of issues 1-6, Terry Moore could have been forgiven if this seventh issue repeated the key points of Rachel Rising in the hope new readers could find an entry point into this blossoming tale but instead he opts for adding further depth to the mysteries unfolding in this fantastic new series. Beginning with some very peculiar moments with talking snow as well a strangers weird chatting with Rachel as she visits the hospital, issue seven feels delightfully odd very quickly. Moving on, we’re introduced to Detective Corpell, who as standard procedure is investigating the car accident from the previous issue. Talking to Rachel while visiting her injured Aunt Johnny, there’s a sense this detective will play a bigger part in the story going forward. He picks up on the small things that ...

Despite Issue With Process, GR BOE Approves Athletic Facilities Makeover
Glen Rock Patch - over 4 years
Despite stated concerns with the process from some members, the Glen Rock Board of Education on Monday night voted 7-2 to award a bid it expects will correct long-standing drainage issues at the high school athletic complex while significantly upgrading facilities. Turco Golf Inc. will collect a $3,527,993 check allocated toward the project. The work encompasses a base bid to repair the high school track and correct drainage problems, as well as a range of alternate bids that most notably will turf several fields, re-sod the baseball field, add two new tennis courts to the complex, all topped with new bleachers and a press box. “This is a unique opportunity for us,” said board member Carlo Cella, who touted many of the improvements the project will bring to the district. Beyond having the support of administrators, the operations committee and realizing greater usage of the fields, Cella said fundamental problems will finally be corrected. “We get to resolve a long-standing fi ...

Comic Review – Rachel Rising: The Shadow of Death
Obsessed with Film - What Cultur - over 4 years
Book: Rachel Rising: The Shadow of Death (Issues #1-6) Written By: Terry Moore Pencils By: Terry moore Publisher: Abstract Studio Release Date: OUT NOW IN STORES & DIGITAL DOWNLOAD (VIA COMIXOLOGY) Rating Rating: 5 out of 5 stars Rachel Rising tells the tale of Rachel. She wakes up in a shallow grave and unsure of what’s happened to her and upon returning to her home town realises that she’s lost a few days and could very well have been murdered. So on the surface this new Terry Moore project could very well get lumped in with the current admiration of zombie comics, except this is Terry Moore, a master storyteller and artist and his real world approach to the living dead isn’t about feet dragging and moaning for the love of brains. Our lead, Rachel is classic Terry Moore really. A strong central female, who feels real and despite the comic book nature of the story approaches the situation she’s in fairly realistically. The tale unravels at a steady pace with the my ...

Obsessed with Film - What Cultur - over 4 years
Pretty much the comic book Oscars, the 2012 nominations for the Eisner awards have been announced. There is quite are large showing from Marvel in the superhero department, not so much from DC. Surprising, considering the company’s high profile New 52 relaunch. Save for Jeff Lemire’s nomination for Best Writer, most of DC’s nomination are pre-relaunch, or from their Vertigo imprint which has been left untouched by the New 52.  The nominations are usually as controversial as the Oscars, with books and  whole companies being left out, much to fans, sometimes, anger and confusion. A full list of the nominations are below, courtesy of Bleeding Cool, and the award will take place at this years San Diego Comic Con.

Terry Moore Goes Digital
Comic Book - almost 5 years
We’ve talked to Rachel Rising creator <a class="fplink fp-264490" href="/terry+moore+1">Terry Moore</a> a couple of times about digital comics and what he sees as the future of the industry, and both times he stopped short of saying anything about when he might enter the digital comics arena. “Where’s the business model?” He asked during our first interview on the subject. Even back then, though, when asked about Bone and Rasl creator Jeff Smith signing with ComiXology, Moore noted that Smith had “never made a wrong move,” and that he would be watching that development with interest. Well, this weekend Moore announced via his blog that he, too, had signed with ComiXology. “I’ve signed with ComiXology to make my comics available digitally,” said Moore’s post. “This weekend I’ll be prepping [Strangers in Paradise] for them. I’d like to get Rachel Rising to them ASAP as well.” He went on to elaborate, “Because I have a larger readership than my direct market figures suggest, I constantl ...

The Whatdead – Terry Moore on RACHEL RISING #4 and The Independent Comics Economy
Comic Book - almost 5 years
Before we get into our discussion of Rachel Rising #4 this week, I wanted to touch base with writer/artist <a class="fplink fp-264490" href="/terry+moore+1">Terry Moore</a> about the challenges of being a truly independent comics creator in today’s market. While anyone who doesn’t work for Marvel or DC has, to a certain extent, to hand-sell their books in order to subsist, guys like Terry—who literally operates his publisher as a family business and has no other creators working with him—are the ones who hare to worry the most about the threats of decreased foot traffic, digital piracy and other such threats to their business model. When asked by a fan today whether Rachel Rising was an ongoing title, Moore responded, “Depends. Retail orders are dropping.” In the days before Rachel Rising was released, Moore had talked to Panel Discussions about the challenges of the independent market, but now that the book has been on the shelves for about six months today’s comments seemed to be as ...
