For the past couple of months, we’ve been trying to figure out what to do with this blog. I thought about the occasional post on our favorite comics or comic book movies or general pop culture stuff, but none of that sounded particularly interesting to write, which means it probably wouldn’t be very interesting to read either. The internet is chock full of pop culture chatter and reflection; there’s not much I can say about Spiderman or Star Wars that a listicle, meme or digital disquisition hasn’t covered somewhere.
I spend a lot of my time online browsing archives of old and obscure texts. We thought it might be fun to share snippets of the animal adventures, research or campfire stories I’ve found relevant to the storyline we’re following on a given week. For example, I have a post lined up this week from an old study on the seasonal eating habits of boars in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park to coincide with the last page of “Brother Weird Goes to Market”. We all know Brother Weird’s a connoisseur, but what do his wild cousins eat?
We also find some really neat stuff on our social media rounds every week so we’ll do a links post every now and then. Plus, look out for sketches and other work that’s in progress. Maybe you’ll appreciate Heather’s work a little more when you see just how bad my “storyboards” are.
Anyway, just a quick note. Look out for the first “From the Bookshelf” post this week.
