Nerdage, NewsOK's blog of awesomeness, lends a hat tip to my werewolf western webcomic HIGH MOON and it's second season, which takes place in Ragged Rock, Oklahoma.

Nestled in the great Arbuckle Mountain Range, Ragged Rock is a largely self-sustained community created as part of the all-Black town movement in the post-Reconstruction era. As the nation's economy shifts agricultural to industrial, Ragged Rock is facing a change of its own.

Anybody remember that graphic novel EFM found in the Free Box?

It was the tale of a writers'-blocked hack writer vampire, with the partial failed sci-fi manuscript mention Brother Dick's Love Juice.

Bring back any memories?

It's come to a close, folks. Or, has it?

HIGH MOON, ACT 2, Ends Tonight!

Tonight, at sundown, marks the end of ACT II in the werewolf western epic, HIGH MOON.

Here's what other people are saying about the series:

  • “High Moon creator/writer David Gallaher must have about twenty brains going full tilt boogie, because there's not a single false note in this tasty multi-genre combo platter which blends spaghetti westerns, hard-boiled detective fiction, werewolf B-flicks and Weird Menace pulps. You can almost taste the dust and smell the blood. Pass the popcorn, please.” - Kevin Burton Smith, THE THRILLING DETECTIVE WEB SITE

  • High Moon is what happens when you mix Doctor Strange and Doc Holiday.  With werewolves, gunslingers, and the sumptuous artwork of Steve Ellis, High Moon will change everything you thought you knew about the Old West.
    - Molly Crabapple, DR. SKETCHY'S

  • "Mixing legend, mystery, and a touch of the wicked, Gallaher and Ellis prove how the west was weird." - Drew Rausch, SULLENGREY

  • "High Moon looks to be one of the most promising comics to come out of the Zuda lineup to date. It’s highly original and combines a fast paced storyline with moody art that nails the head for this horror western." - About.Com

Read the webcomic that has been profiled by the likes of:

Remember, HIGH MOON updates fortnightly only on Zuda - and with only 20 pages left ... anything can happen!

As you ought to know by now, katachthonios and his partner, underagedrinker, are expecting a girl, which the stork should deliver some time in July, I believe. As we are all scattered by the four winds, I'd like to try something that a friend of mine has done several times successfully: A long-distance baby shower.

Essentially, anyone who participates communicates with me and Herb about what's needed (the idea being to maintain some semblance of a surprise for Melissa), and the gifts are sent to me separately. I then package them up together in one large box and ship that to the expectant parents, who get to open them all together, which is much more fun.

If you'd like to participate, drop a comment here or e-mail me at antarcticlust at livejournal dot com. We'll then be in touch with some kind of list or registry (optional, of course - feel free to forge Baby's First Warhammer, if you're the talented sort, or follow your personal gifty instincts).


Dewey Reunion, take.....12?

I'll be up in Vermont the last week of May. I know we've tried various iterations of a reunion in the past, without much success, but I'd really like to see folks while I'm back in New England, whether that's for dinner, or bonfire antics, or breakfast at River Run, or breaking into the Goddard Art building to see if my pottery is still there, or what-have-you.

Any takers?

Hello, Deweyites! I am still languishing in Stamford, bored out of my mind. Been working at Borders for about a year and a half and I'm also taking an English class at the local community college which has been going well. If anyone is in my area and would like to get together that would be wonderful.
Take care.

The Death Of Postmodernism And Beyond

Alan Kirby:

Whereas postmodernism called “reality” into question, pseudo-modernism defines the real implicitly as myself, now, “interacting” with its texts. Thus, pseudo-modernism suggests that whatever it does or makes is what is reality, and a pseudo-modern text may flourish the apparently real in an uncomplicated form: the docu-soap with its hand-held cameras (which, by displaying individuals aware of being regarded, give the viewer the illusion of participation); The Office and The Blair Witch Project, interactive pornography and reality TV; the essayistic cinema of Michael Moore or Morgan Spurlock…
