2013 Can Suck A Butt

Not the worst year ever, but it was full of things that didn’t pan out, major life changes in my family, and an increasingly unstable work environment.

So, 2013 can suck it on it’s way out the door. Now, let’s move on to what I’m looking forward to in 2014.

The Graphic Canon of Children’s Literature

graphic canon children's lit

Seven Stories Press is following up their Graphic Canon series with Volume 4: adult interpretations of classic children’s literature in comic form.

We’re in it with an adaptation of Treasure Island.

It’s due to come out in May. It’ll be the first book with my name in it, which excites me.

NASA’s Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle

The Orion MPCV is our follow up to the space shuttles we grew up with. The first test flight is scheduled for September. If all goes well, this could be the spacecraft that takes humanity to Mars.

New Stuff on Pink Raygun

John, Sonia, and I are working on some new features for the site which will start launching in February to coincide with PRG’s 8th anniversary.

Holy crap, we’ve been at this for 8 years.

Seeing The Surface of A Comet

The European Space Agency’s Rosetta probe is scheduled to meet up with comet 67-P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko around August, when it will begin to take pictures. Then in November, Rosetta will deploy its Philae lander to the comet’s surface.

Only Lovers Left Alive

I’m so over vampires, but….

Tom Hiddleston.

Naked.

Here’s the trailer (the money shot is at 2:08. You’re welcome).

Of course, the movie co-stars Tilda Swinton (who I love) and is directed by Jim Jarmusch (who I appreciate). But, Tom Hiddleston Naked is the real star of Only Lovers Left Alive.

I’m being childish about this one, but I DO NOT CARE.

  1. Congrats about the book! I’ll definitely have to pick up a copy.

    I am also glad 2013 is over — here’s to a better 2014!

  2. Holy hell, this list was amazing. Congrats ten billion times over for being in a book! It sounds really interesting, I can’t wait to get it. I have so much hope for Tom Hiddleston’s career if he’s choosing to star in Jim Jarmusch films and also be naked. The future is bright, white, skinny, and British and its name is Tom Hiddleston.

    Also 2014 marks the return of Captain America which I’m already counting down the days for.
