Thu, 28 July 2011 Y: The Last Man review

I should have mentioned this last week, but I was insanely busy and didn’t even have time to blog.
I recently reviewed the first deluxe edition of the post-apocalyptic comic book series Y: The Last Man, for the UK Feminist web site The F-Word.
It’s the inaugural graphic novel review for the web site, and I hope [...]

Sun, 26 June 2011 roisin dubh 1 reviews

I realised that I haven’t been posting links to reviews of Róisín Dubh issue 1 on my own blog. I’ve been keeping the other social media updated so sometimes it slips my mind to mention such things on my own site.
Here are the first reviews:

Emmet O’Cuana on Tastes Like Comics
James Bacon on The Forbidden Planet [...]

Wed, 22 June 2011 new Irish Comic Book resource

After the Squarebound event in Dublin last weekend Irish artist Tommie Kelly realised that the Irish comic book scene could use a central resource, and in a splurge of sudden activity has put together a terrific site called Irish Comic News.

Fri, 01 April 2011 just the facts ma’am

I’d like to add a few observations based on my last piece of detective work, and other similar projects I’ve tackled regarding re-adjusting the representation of women in creative fields.

Fri, 12 November 2010 accumulating words

I took the above photo over a month ago, when we still had lush grass, and rainfall was gentle, not violent.

Thu, 27 May 2010 cresting the big wave

I’ve been working on the web site redevelopment of the Irish Playwrights and Screenwriters Guild for a long time. I do a lot of web-related work for the Guild, including managing all of its social media outlets, which every organisation needs to maintain these days. A big job like a web site overhaul requires large [...]

Sat, 08 May 2010 long live the new flesh

A year and a half ago I started a project to migrate my blog onto Wordpress. This past week I got a tiny gap between projects that allowed me to turn my attention back to it, and the results are now live. I didn’t have much time to dedicate to the re-design, but I’m pleased [...]

I’m in London at the moment, but I’ll be heading to Heathrow for Eastercon later today.
Some time after 2pm this afternoon I’m back on “Arts Brew” on the Internet Radio Z103, and I’ll be discussing the forthcoming Cúirt International Festival of Literature in Galway, among other things.
World Horror Convention in Brighton last weekend [...]

Thu, 18 March 2010 graphic preview

I’ve established a web site for the Róisín Dubh graphic novel I’m working on. I’ve been blogging intermittently about the project for the past couple of months.
There’s also a twitter feed and a Facebook fan page, if you like either of those media.
Artist Stephen Daly has been working flat-out, lettering and making tweaks to [...]
