Surveying the Sixties!



No folks, this Blog is not dead... though it really should have come back long before now.  Unfortunately, its humble proprietor remains (all together now) horrifically busy with life's necessary chores and obligations, a need for more sleep in order to carry out those chores and obligations, and joyously still writing for IDW and Fantagraphics

However, we do take occasional time to enjoy ourselves, as noted in THIS BLOG POST by friend Marc Whinston. 

It details our activities of Saturday evening April 15, 2017, when Esther and I hosted something I've wanted to do for a very long time - and hope to do more of in the future. 


Also, as an added bonus, HERE is a link to Marc's post on a presentation I did at our Cinema History Class - aka the "Thursday Night Horror and Sci-Fi Appreciation Society".

Enjoy!

Happy New Year 2017!



Happy New Year 2017! 

My plans to return to this Blog later in 2016 didn’t exactly come to fruition, did they? 

However, I’m still optimistic for a return some time in the first half of 2017.  But, since I’ve never failed to wish you all a Happy New Year yet, please have a very Happy New Year – and enjoy this festive (…for Eega Beeva and Ellsworth, at least) illustration by our friend Debbie Anne Perry!  I think it should have been an alternate cover to IDW’s MICKEY MOUSE # 15, the issue released most closely to, but not past, New Year’s Day!  Don’t you?     

...Though, shouldn't Eega's noisemaker go "Pfwee!"?


Please rest assured that things are good, but also remain (all together now) “Horrifically Busy” – though it sure feels good to squeeze out this Blog post. 

The (all together now) “Horrifically Busy Period” also cut into my IDW work during the second half of 2016 as well – but I still have a few things coming up.

A Two-Part Uncle Scrooge vs. The Beagle Boys with a medieval twist.

Super Goof’s rematch with a daringly different looking Dr. Dunk. 

Goofy gives romance advice to Clarabelle via an online video (!).

And Ludwig Von Drake lectures us on the subject of The Moon.  …He can do it too, because he's already been there!


Before I go, I just wish to thank each and every one of you for your support of this Blog.  It is that support that I hope to live up to in the new year of 2017!   And, thank you, Deb, for an illustration wonderful enough to sit me down at Blogger once again! 


After all, I can't let Melvin be a more prolific Blogger than me, can I?
