The nice thing about writing a pin-up comic is you often don't have to waste words on clothes description, as artists frown upon a writer who over-describes nude bodies. The page appears before it's sullied by our text, but I guess in some sense it's already there.

Sana looks at Porter, who shrugs.
They can do that?
They've been working on mind-harvesting for years. I guess they could be chopping and screwing memories by now. Thatís scary.
Frank breaks her silence and enters the conversation. She shifts her eyes to the left to and stands with her arms crossed.
If Vanderslice has got one of your girls, he's playing mindbender with your other missing ops and Xenia as well.
By now you've probably been infiltrated.
Sana addresses the cyborg head sitting on its pedestal.
Let's not get ahead of ourselves. Okay chump, where is Vanderslice?
6. Cyborg head
Current location unknown but he is due to arrive at Way of Life Gold Plate Boca Raton Fundraiser, Earl Menotar presiding. Tomorrow. ETA 1500.
Frank pulls out her sword and holds it to the cyborg head.
Could it be lying?
Not really. This model doesn't have the brain capacity Ė
Frank slices the cyborg head in half.
Then letís move!

1. Me with animatronic statues of American Werewolf in London. Wow!
2. and 3. Here are a couple of interviews that went up recently:
First, a nice interview at Urban Fantasy News about a few projects, including a YA urban fantasy comic we're working on with Gavin Smith. We talk about 'Suicide Girls: the comic' (which may or may not assign me with a writing credit. Though, for better or worse, I came up with the plot and wrote most of the last three issues, I've yet to see my name on a solicit. Weird. Maybe it will become like my version of William Lustig's unclaimed porn films.). Not sure what's going on there, but I also talk a little about Jonathan Spies and my upcoming webcomic 'Detective Warlock'.
In this Geekscape interview, I didn't know you would be able to see my legs, so I wore trashy shorts for no extra fee. As I recall, I talk a lot about some sci-fi erotica stories I've been writing and how frustrating sex will be in the future if technology continues in the direction it's headed. If you don't want to listen to me rant for an hour, the gist of it is tech like the grinder app appear positive, but are probably just a glitch in a movement towards alienated and frustrated sex tech (e.g. self-aware robotic sex dolls and the movement toward 'Demolition Man' virtual sex with the internet). I sadly don't talk about my friend Carrie Tryharder, the only person to whom I send these stories, mostly because she is depraved enough to have replied with a sad one she wrote about non-humanoid alien sex arcade booths. All the same, I'm sure you'll see her stories in print soon enough.
Thus far all of my book titles for this collection have been shot down. Highest on the list of titles are 'The Future to Come' (alt. spelling), 'Fucking Infinity' (the name of one of the stories), and a riff on one of Carrie's emails, 'Sad Boners Await'.... though I was told you should never use the word boner in a title for a literary fiction audience.... anyway.

Last weekend, I re-attended 'Re-Animator the Musical' for one of the recently added midnight showings. Even though the late start time must have been shocking to some of the actors, the comedic timing was really spot on for the performance. The songs were tight, the transitions were smooth, and, not to be forgotten, the gore flowed like wine.
Here is a piece NPR did about it: Re-Animator on NPR
