February 22, 2011

The interview’s conclusion can be found here at Dark Horse’s official site.

I thought this was a lot of fun and wanted to be sure to share it with you guys.

Ah, and while I’m here, please pick up the latest issue or trade-paperback of Usagi Yojimbo. I’d pick it up for you if I could, it’s that good!

David Peterson’s Tribute to Brian Jacques

February 8, 2011

I’m very sorry to hear of Brian Jacques passing, and I thought David Peterson’s (of Mouse Guard fame) piece here was a poignant tribute.

From Peterson:

Today’s blogpost comes a day early to mark the passing of Brian Jacques, author of the wonderful children’s series of Redwal novels. The series focuses on the medieval goings on of generations of animals who live in and around Redwall Abbey. Mr. Jacques was the lead torch holder in keeping anthropomorphic characters alive and prospering after such other greats as Aesop, Rudyard Kipling, & Kenneth Grahame.

My niece just began reading the Redwall series so his legacy of bringing joy to children and adults alike will certainly live on.
