Official Press Release
Los Angeles, C.A. – July 21st, 2004 – Comic Book Resources (http://www.comicbookresources.com), a leading comic book news and resource Web site, is proud to announce a new weekly column from writer Robert Kirkman (“Marvel Team Up,” “The Walking Dead,” “Invincible”) called BUY MY BOOKS. A rising star within the comics industry, the column will be an unusual one, as you can tell from the title. Kirkman explained.
“Aside from trying to coerce people into buying my various books I want to give readers an insight into what my week is like, and give them a preview of things almost as I see them,” Kirkman explained. “I work on no less than three books a month right now and usually more, my days are filled with what I like to call ‘jpeg heaven.’ Aside from what I plan to be a large preview art show, I’ll also be discussing the ins and outs of producing a comic from the ground up, and griping about whatever I feel like griping about from week to week. Some weeks, I’ll even talk a little about OTHER people’s books. I’m always getting cool stuff to show and so this will be a way to share my enjoyment of the comic making process with my readers– and other people who I’ll try
to convince to ‘Buy My Books.'”
As any comic creator who has written a column knows it can open you up to intense scrutiny from comics fandom, but that doesn’t phase Kirkman who likes the idea of having a place where people can read some ramblings from him each week. “I want to do something more focused than a blog and I really enjoy taking on too much work so I feel the deadline pressure and it forces me to do more work. And aside from that it sounds like it’ll be fun,” said Kirkman.
Excited is the best word to describe CBR Executive Producer Jonah Weiland’s reaction when Kirkman accepted his invitation to write for Comic Book Resources.
“I’ve known Robert for a couple of years now and have watched him take the comics industry by storm,” said Weiland. “He’s without a doubt one of the critical rising stars in the comics industry with a loyal and growing fan base. If you’ve ever had the chance to meet him at a comics show you know he’s one of the most genuine and thoughtful creators in the industry. Getting the chance to work with a creator of Robert’s caliber is a real plus.”
Readers can find Robert Kirkman’s BUY MY BOOKS every Wednesday beginning August 10th exclusively at Comic Book Resources.
