Cover Reveal – Glazed Man 2

  At long last, I’m revealing the cover of my new book, Glazed Man and Rat Girl 2. See it here, below. This book is the second in the series and it will provide answers to the cliffhangers that I left my readers with at the end of GMRG#1. What happened to Martha (Rat Girl) and the rats after they blasted off from earth in their tiny rocket? Did they ever make it to Mars? And what about our other hero, Glazed Man? Last we saw him, he had been kidnapped by some mysterious person whose face was familiar to Glazed … Continue reading Cover Reveal – Glazed Man 2

The Flash

The CW Network TV series, The Flash plays like a classic superhero tale that the whole family can enjoy. My daughters (13 and 11) and I watched several episodes together this past weekend and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. As a superhero story it has everything going for it that one would expect. It’s about a likeable guy who gets extraordinary powers and ends up being a really cool superhero. Our hero, Barry Allen is surrounded by colorful characters that add lots of relationship drama that compliments the good hero verses bad villain plotlines. I thought the show did a good job of balancing … Continue reading The Flash

Guardians, Not The Same As Avengers

The new movie, Guardians of the Galaxy is about a group of heroes, adapted from a Marvel comic book series, much like another group of heroes from Marvel Comics, The Avengers. I have yet to see Guardians, but it’s receiving high praise from critics with a 91% at rottentomatoes.com. For the sake of comparison, The Avengers received a 92%. Guardians of the Galaxy has the polished look, plenty of hype, and strong reviews, setting it up to be another big superhero movie for Marvel, much like The Avengers back in 2012. The similarity between the two teams of heroes stops there. The … Continue reading Guardians, Not The Same As Avengers

Amazing Spider-Man 2

  The summer of 2014 has officially begun with the opening of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, in theaters everywhere this weekend. I’ve read many reviews on it and it looks like I’m going to have to give it two different grades. In the area of morality and appropriateness for younger audiences, I’m giving it a definite STAR. The only caution here is the expected high level of action violence that may not be suitable for the younger kids. Otherwise, I applaud the strong moral character of this movie. Here are a few review highlights to better explain: MOVIEGUIDE.ORG says, “…The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is … Continue reading Amazing Spider-Man 2

Rat Girl & Glazed Man

Yesterday was National Superhero Day. What can I say? I was inspired to create a new image of my two favorite superheroes. DC comics fans might recognize the pose as being similar to one struck by a certain bat and a cat. No dis-respect to those two great comic book characters, nor the original artwork that is far above my abilities. I thought it might be fun to see what Glazed Man and Rat Girl would do with the pose. As you can see, they injected their own brand of super satire and made it all their own. I’d love to … Continue reading Rat Girl & Glazed Man

Captain America Films, Good & Bad

As the 2nd Captain America solo film, Captain America: The Winter Soldier prepares to launch this weekend, I thought it would be fun to see how this most patriotic of Marvel heroes has progressed throughout the years in film. He’s been one of the most popular Marvel comic book characters since his introduction in 1941. So, it’s only natural that there have been several attempts to dramatize Captain America in movies and television. CAPTAIN AMERICA, THE SERIAL – 1944 – As you’ll see in the trailer below, our hero seems more like a super cop trying to bring down the … Continue reading Captain America Films, Good & Bad

A Scene from Glazed Man & Rat Girl

Below are a few pages from my book Glazed Man & Rat Girl: The Origins. This scene is plucked right from the middle of the book, so here are a few details to bring you up to speed. 1. The villain, RoboCreep, is trying to make a getaway by flying upward into the sky. Our heroes are trying to stop him. Neither of them can fly, so they are hanging onto RoboCreep, who is actually a scientist named Caswell Creep wearing a robot suit. 2. Glazed Man and Rat Girl just met for the first time, a few pages earlier. … Continue reading A Scene from Glazed Man & Rat Girl
