As much as I love writing for my own blog, it's incredibly gratifying to have stuff I've written published elsewhere also. Case in point, Sequart posted two more of my recent essays. First, an appreciation for Christopher Priest's landmark run on Black Panther, a years-long story told by Priest and artists such as Sal Vellutto with careful precision and an extreme flair for bringing down the house with one big moment after another. I really hope Marvel at least partly models their film version of Black Panther on Priest's run. They'd be foolish not to.
The second essay is a review (and sort of yet another appreciation) for the film The Purge: Anarchy. The fact that Sequart is so receptive to essays like this one focusing on a genre movie that isn't typically critically examined speaks volumes about the kind of boundaries-breaking work they're doing over there. I'm not saying I'm contributing to that, just saying I'm happy to be allowed to see my work sharing the page with the fine writers at Sequart.
So, head on over there if you'd like to read my thoughts on comics and movies. Not that I won't write about those things here, but when I write about them for Sequart I try to actually sound smart about it all. It's hard work, trust me.
