Random Things - A Wooden Bat - February 26, 2011

When I was at New York Comic Con in October 2010, I carried around a couple of wooden bats for signatures. Not baseball bats, the mammel kind of bat. I gave one away in last year's Blogversary giveaways. I kept the other one for myself. So here it is. The key to the signatures is below.

Random Things - A Wooden Bat - February 26, 2011

A - Richard Kadrey: author of the Sandman Slim novels and more.

B - Tom Sniegoski (also drew the wolfish monster): author of the Remy Chandler novels, The Fallen series (YA), and more.

C - Roger Ma: author of the Zombie Combat Manual.

D - Aaron Rosenberg (also drew self-portrait): author of The Scattered Earth and more. Also a game designer.

E - Jim Butcher (also added eyebrows to bat!): author of the Codex Alera series and the Dresden Files.

F - Seanan McGuire: author of the October Daye series.

G - Joe Abercrombie: author of the First Law series, Best Served Cold, and Heroes.

H - Mira Grant: author of the Newsflesh Trilogy (yes, I know this is Seanan McGuire).

I - Anton Strout (also drew the monster): author of the Simon Canderous series.

The bat is in a safe place and will eventually be archivally framed.

Authors and Comic Books - Part 1

Normally I would do a New Release Turesday Vlog today. However I'm not buying any new releases today. Instead I'm going to talk a bit about comic books.

Many of the authors whose books I like to read also write comics. Today I'll cover some of the authors who have adapted their own material to comics or written new stories set in the world or worlds that they have created. This is, of course, not an inclusive list. These are the ones that I collect. If I collect them I like them. Enough said.

That's it for comics I collect from authors who write comics in their own world(s). Next time I don't purchase books on New Release Tuesday I'll cover some authors who write comics unrelated to their own works and eventually I'll cover adaptions of novels by others.
