Hey folks! It's been a wild few days. We headed from Atlanta up to Marietta so John could check out Dr. No comics -- which reportedly had lots of back issues. Could there be monster comics, we thought? Well, not so much, but it turns out Marietta is ALSO the home of Top Shelf Productions -- the great folks who put out Jeffrey Brown, James Kochalka, Edie Campbell, Alan Moore, Matt Kindt, etc. etc.

It's a gorgeous day here in Chicago Illinois, or so it would seem. Yesterday I was able to re-log a bunch of tapes, and log in tapes of the Jeffrey Brown and Joe Chiappetta interviews. Got 'em looking really good.

When: Thursday, February 18, 6:30 pmI'm going to be there. Ivan B. will be there. Should be a blast, but more importantly, I'm going to try to do a short (5-10m) interview with her about John P., and of course, in my fantasy of fantasies, we'll see a King Cat NY'er cover before year's end. Highly unlikely, but without dreams and fantasies.......
Location: Hokin Auditorium, Rm. 109, 623 S. Wabash Ave
A reception will take place immediately after the event in the A+D Gallery.

Hello world. It's getting to the point where enough people know about this, and I've spent enough money, that it's time to be a little more frank, a little more public. I'm making a documentary. About John Porcellino, creator of King-Cat Comics and Stories. Tentatively, I'm going with 'Root Hog' or 'Root Hog or Die: Ballad of the King Cat
I'll intend this blog to be a place to post random clips to tantalize you, as well as a place to keep a journal of the project's progress, for those of you who care enough to tune in. Today I'm including a great clip of John filmed at Ruby Hill in Denver a couple weeks ago, when he was feeling a wee bit sassy.
