A man flattened by an opponent can get up again.
A man flattened by conformity stays down for good.
~ Thomas J. Watson, Jr.
I have just experienced THE DARK KNIGHT. The movie is really good. Discuss amongst yourselves.
Also, an update about Comic Con: I’ll be signing at the Marvel Comics booth on Sunday the 27th, from 1:00 – 2:00 PM. My novels are welcome at the booth—though there will be a Marvel Portfolio Booklet, and handouts that contain pages and art from NYX.
Here, this is insane, but cool. And no, I’ve never actually written a full-length novel in three days, though I’ve certainly tried. Best score? A third of a novel. And then I had to spend an entire day vegetating with Die Hard, The Hunt for Red October, and Lethal Weapon. I find those movies incredibly relaxing, for some odd reason.

No flashback today. My mind is still wrapped up around Batman.
