[News, Posted 3/7/09]
In the wake of Brian Andersen’s appearance at WonderCon, his series So Super Duper has landed a great review by Ambush Bug of “Ain’t It Cool News”. Read it here (scroll down to the “Indie Jones” section).
“Wowie! I am so surprised by how nice the review is I almost got misty-eyed. Tee hee! I'm such a dork,” says Brian, reacting to the review.

BATWOMAN RETURNS (AGAIN)
[Queer Eye on Comics, Posted 3/5/06]
If the rumors are true, there will soon be a new Batwoman darting through the DC universe. There are a few candidates for this role; Sasha Bordeaux, Bruce Wayne's former bodyguard and brief lover (she's a Checkmate She-borg now), Barbara Gordon (it looks like she'll stick to her role as Oracle and she's otherwise engaged; plus, there'll be apparently no full recovery from her paralysis...yet), Lady Shiva (not likely--read the last issue of Batgirl), Cassandra Cain (also unlikely, since…

Because of the great dedication and exemplary work being done by our writers, I wanted to celebrate this anniversary by taking a fond look back.
Ah, it seemed like just…two years ago that Rich Thigpen asked me to edit the column. Though Prism Comics is dedicated to…
ARCHIE'S CHRISTMAS LOVE-IN
[Queer Eye on Comics, Posted 12/25/05]
Christmas Eve in Montreal. I’m sitting in Tim Horton’s sipping the best coffee ever and nibbling on my comfort food of choice – a carrot muffin. In a few hours, a multi-course meal will begin at my parent’s home. There will be shrimp cocktail and orange salad for starters, and perhaps hors d’oeuvres of smoked salmon and cream cheese on crackers. But the garlic bread will be consumed first. The family will eventually gather around the table – a large fold-out table set in the family…
