Pictured above are Josh Elder, Chris Burnham, me (Tim Broderick), and Jeffrey Brown from tonight’s signing at the Bookcellar bookstore in Lincoln Square. I think it went pretty well. Chris and Jeff were still wiped out from San Diego, so Josh went first and warmed up the crowd by talking about comics and graphic novels. Jeffrey went next and was pretty entertaining as he discussed how he got into comics. I followed kept my talk short. Then Chris talked about his situation. We finished up Read More +

Today was the first day for “Something to build upon,” my second graphic novel that hasn’t been on the web for four years. That’s a billion years internet time. Tomorrow (Tuesday), “Children of the Revolution” starts its new update schedule – Tuesdays.
Johanna Draper Carlson via Journalista: “I don’t want to be accused of yaoi-bashing, because I do think it’s a valid genre, even if I don’t personally “get it”, ….. One of the commenters mentions how rape fantasies are common among the young female readers the genre is aimed at. I think there’s a very good reason for that: women are taught that girls who want and enjoy sex are dirty or impure. So a rape fantasy makes enjoyable sex not their fault — they couldn’t Read More +
So Webcomicsnation got hacked over the weekend. Google discovered it and put the site on a blacklist temporarily. All is well now, but actually it’s all my fault. Whenever I do a bunch of work on my websites, my hosting goes down. First it was Keenspace, then Moderntales and now WCN. If only I’d use this power for good …

Hi, welcome to the new timbroderick.net Sorry about things being a bit disorganized, I’m still putting it together. But I have big plans. This will be the lynchpin of all the cartoons I intend to have online: - Children of the Revolution, which will likely move to update on Tuesdays - Something to Build Upon, my second complete graphic novel that hasn’t been online for four years, will run M-W-F starting this Monday - Lost Child, the first Odd Jobs story, gets it’s own section Read More +
Several years and about 20 extra pounds ago I was in good shape and studying Aikido. I enjoyed the class, but time and money intruded. Today, I’ll be taking my second class in Hapkido. It’s offered at the same dojo where my daughters study Tai Kwon Do with their friends. It was their idea, and they’ve stuck to it. So, as part of a deal with them to keep them motivated, when they passed their green belt test I told them I’d join too. They Read More +
I’m not there – I just wasn’t sure if I could sell enough or network enough to justify the cost. But, lots of other people are there and, yes, it’s big. This graphic by the folks at the San Diego paper shows just how large it is. Very cool. By my estimate, San Diego is about three-and-a-half Chicago Wizard Worlds.
I recap my experiences at Wizard World Chicago and Printer’s Row book fair over at Crimespree Magazine’s Blog. There’s a ton of links there to authors and comics creators. Jon and Ruth Jordan have a few comments as well. Wizard World Chicago was FANTASTIC. I had no idea that I’d do so well – I ran out of books to sell on Saturday and dug up some out of my personal stash for Sunday. Even so, I was done well before noon.
