Some links are provided below for your convenience but this list is by no means exhaustive–I don’t belong to every site, membership is generally required to search catalogs, and some are non-US services or specific to certain mobile platforms. If your service of choice isn’t linked below, searching on my last name generally produces the desired results; there aren’t many other Poehlers releasing music, fortunately.

Goodbye to 2013

(from Mind MGMT by Matt Kindt)

2013 was quite a year, mostly for reasons personal, private, and professional — thus the relative lack of public activity here. Signs point to renewed production in the next year but of course only time will tell.

Best to you and yours and here’s hoping for a bright 2014 for all.

At least it’s not another Fantastic Four #1 or Action #1 homage

The market for comics is arguably more crowded than ever, with thousands of products from publishers ranging from multinational conglomerates to lone self-publishers. You really need a compelling cover design conveying an exciting concept to break through the chatter and grab the reader’s attention. Something like the debut issue of Skyward:

What we have here is a boy and his dog, evidently landing? Because the book’s called ‘Skyward’ I guess they can fly. Is that the hook? If so, obviously the best way to depict that is to have the characters slightly above the ground in such a way that it’s not clear whether they are landing or just jumped up in an awkward manner, or in the dog’s case whether he’s lifting his leg to urinate on his master once the boy returns to the embrace of gravity’s bonds. Assuming flight is the hook though they’ve got a goldmine here, as it’s well known audiences have been waiting for decades to finally get a comic book about mammals with flight capability.

And what better hook to grab the reader’s imagination than the mystery invoked by having both characters stare dully off-panel? What are they looking at? IT COULD LITERALLY BE ANYTHING! BOOK OF THE YEAR!

Other valuable marketing information conveyed by this cover: the world Skyward takes place in has trees and mushrooms. Great for budding environmentalists/vegetarians! Also, just like in the real world, buccaneer boots with matching gloves over taped-up forearms are what all the kids are into and huge belts are also a thing. Why, just the other day at the hypothetical mall I saw a kid rocking that exact combination tunic/jumpsuit the boy’s wearing. Sharp!

Finally, there is a sun in the world of Skyward as well. Good hook for sun-loving comics fans! At least the tagline gives us fair warning as to Skyward’s future prospects with a callback to basically the only 80s property never to spawn either sequel or reboot.

Well, maybe not so much ‘dancing’ as ‘lunging’ but any activity is better than just lying on the floor like a big slug. (Cat Dancer)
