Conversations with ADD: Savagely Critiqued -- My downloadable, free eBook Conversations with ADD is given a critical look by Graeme McMillan at The Savage Critic(s).

Which is a fine reminder to me to remind you it exists, and to thank Graeme for all the things he had to say about it, too. I previously posted links to some other reviews as well, if you're interested.

Early Returns on Conversations with ADD -- I'm very interested to see what you think of my new eBook, Conversations with ADD; it took much longer to prepare than my previous eBook projects, and the editing and finalizing of it seemed like a never-ending process. That said, I'm really pleased with how it came out. I love having all these conversations gathered in one handy place, and I hope you'll download Conversations with ADD and see for yourself what it's all about.

Here are some early comments:

* "Although several of the interviews are almost 10 years old, it’s an interesting glimpse into a time now passed." - Johanna Draper Carlson, Comics Worth Reading

* "[T]o be honest, I'd buy a print copy." - Mike Rhode, editor, Harvey Pekar: Conversations

* "[T]here are some good interview subjects in there, and ADD is a thoughtful commentator..." - Matt Brady, Warren Peace Sings the Blues

* "[A] great e-Book...with a collection of interviews with some of the movers and shakers of the comic industry. Go. Read. Enjoy. Learn." - Michael Paciocco, Michael Paciocco's Mind

* "I know you people like the free stuff, so go check it out." - Mike Sterling, Progressive Ruin

Mike also called me an "Internet stalwart," but that just means I'm older than white dog crap.

Hey, if you see anyone talking about Conversations with ADD, email me a link so I can see what they're saying. Thanks!

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.

Click here to download Conversations with ADD. And I'd appreciate it if you'd let me know if you have any comments or criticisms. Feel free to email me your thoughts or leave them in the comments section.

Note to new readers: Thanks for stopping by! If you like what you see here, please feel free to subscribe to my RSS feed, and if you enjoy my free eBook, you can download and read my previous eBooks Anhedonia and Strange Whine as well.
