This past week the world of comics was at a loss. News broke out that on the evening of Nov 10, Kevin Conroy had lost his battle with cancer at the age of 66. Conroy was… an actor who made appearances in shows such as Cheers as Darryl Mead or Dynasty as Bart Fallmont. But perhaps his most famous role was in 1992 as the capped crusader in Batman the Animated Series. This show introduced Batman and DC comics to many people like myself. more
In recent years the horror genre has seen a renaissance, from new films like Smile and Nope to television shows like Strangers Things and Chucky. Literature and comics are no different, with one artist in the manga world getting some attention Junji Ito. I consider him very similar or another famous horror author Stephen King. Both men constantly tell horror stories, and both have mastered the page-turner. The "I really don't want to turn the page but I have to know what happens." The only difference is one uses pictures to help tell his story. Ito constantly makes ordinary circumstances into a pure nightmare, much like King. Check out Ito's works like Uzumaki, Fragments of Horror, or Smashed, and you will see what I'm talking about. It's downright terrifying. What I'm trying to say is this. If you like Stephen King and want to try a different medium, consider visiting the Manga section of your favorite bookstore. Then, give Junji Ito a read; you will be glad or terrified if you do. more

In no particular order, here are five songs to get spooky! more
I attended a newspaper conference last week that our entire staff (less Karen-we missed you Karen) was able to attend. Alyssa, J.T. and I hopped into Alyssa’s new car and hit the road for our two hour drive down to Cassville, MO. The conference was hosted by the Ozark Press Association and was a day filled with different topics to help improve the newspaper here at home. more
