Today would have been John Lennon's 80th birthday. Forty years here, forty years gone. Astonishing—and still so very sad.
Anyone who's followed this blog (and my career) knows that Lennon remains my one true rock and roll hero. (For further proof, just read this.) His music is more alive, more vibrant, more urgent and necessary today than ever before.
Happy birthday, John. Shine on.

Today's the birthday of the late, great Steve Gerber, one of the best—and, for me, most influential—writers to ever work in comics. I could go on and on about the unique power of Gerber's work, but, instead, I'll point you to this post I wrote a few years back.
His voice is missed now more than ever.

Here's a shameless plug for the upcoming Batman: Death in the Family Blu-ray, which includes two shorts I wrote ("Death," bringing Neil Gaiman's Sandman character to animated life, and "Adam Strange"—from a story by director Butch Lukic). Along with the title short adapting the classic Batman tale and a Phantom Stranger adventure, the disc also include a Sgt. Rock short (written by Tim Sheridan and Walt and Louise Simonson) that features the Creature Commandos—one of the very first series I ever created, wayyyy back in my early days at DC.
Batman: Death in the Family will be out in October. End of shameless plug!

Star Trek warped onto our television screens for the first time 54 years ago today.
This is the speech that defines it all: written by Trek creator Gene Roddenberry, delivered with passion and power by the great William Shatner.
Live long and prosper!
