Conversations with ADD Now Available -- My third eBook is now available for download here on Comic Book Galaxy.

Nearly 300 pages in length, Conversations with ADD compiles almost all of the interviews I have conducted with writers, artists, editors and publishers since I started writing about comics ten years ago. The Foreword is by writer Christopher Allen, and the Afterword is by autobiographical cartoonist Jason Marcy.

The lineup of interviewees includes cartoonists Peter Bagge, Tom Beland, Charles Burns, Chester Brown, Colleen Coover, Renee French, Roberta Gregory, Paul Hornschemeier, James Kochalka, Jason Marcy, L. Nichols, Ted Rall, Johnny Ryan, Seth, Dave Sim, James Sturm, Walter Simonson, Ty Templeton, and Josie Whitmore; writers, artists, publishers and editors, including Brian Michael Bendis, Ed Brubaker, Kurt Busiek, Howard Chaykin, Steven Grant, Tony Isabella, Barbara Kesel, Ron Marz, Erik Larsen, Mark Millar, Denny O'Neil, Harvey Pekar, Sean Phillips, Joe Quesada and Jimmy Palmiotti, Greg Rucka, Rob Vollmar, Mark Waid, Mike Wieringo, Brett Warnock, Barry Windsor-Smith and Larry Young; comics retailers, including Jim Crocker, JC Glindmyer, and Robert Scott; and bloggers, including Dirk Deppey and Roger Green.

I had a great time reliving these interviews (conducted from 1999 to 2009) as I was putting this project together, and I hope you'll enjoy reading them and learning what each of these folks had to say about their careers, the industry, and the future of comics.

Just followed the link from Jog's site; appreciate the work you must have put into something this size. I will come back and let you know what I think after I've read it, you're a good man for putting it all together and then simply making it available for any/all interested parties to see.
