Two bits of news, kids. My “Ties That Bind” column at PopMatters will return in March. I took a hiatus last summer in order to focus on some book-length projects: finishing my novel The Day and getting it out to agents, getting further ahead on my book about The ‘Nam and my book of music criticism (described below). I’m excited that “Ties That Bind” will once again be a monthly column. Thanks to the PopMatters editors who graciously welcomed me back.
Also, I’ll have a long essay at The Comics Journal sometime in March. It examines this concept of “profluent lingering” which I’ve written about before, but this time tackles poem comics, specifically two works by the extremely talented Bianca Stone. More on that when it’s out.
