It’s been a while since I last posted, so I figured it was time for an update. I originally created this blog to provide the short cultural study essays on comics and film that you can still find by scrolling down. But then I ended up developing some of that material for my YouTube channel, Professor Geek, and some of it for books I’m currently writing. I’m working on a number of projects that I’m excited about right now. So I’ll just list them in one big update.
The Iconicast Podcast is still going strong. In fact, I merged my Professor Geek YouTube channel with the Iconicast channel. I still need to update a few episodes on it, but you can listen to the latest Iconicast episodes (including the September episode, due out this weekend) at our website IconicastPodcast.com
Next up is the Superman Lives podcast, which I’m honored to co-host with the great Chris Meaux from The Big Sheaux with Chris Meaux. This one is a mostly bi-weekly podcast about all things Superman (Supergirl included). Early episodes are available on YouTube, but I believe Chris is posting new ones, beginning with the most recent episode, on Podomatic. You can catch our discussion of Superman Returns here.
In fiction news, a new anthology featuring two of my short stories was released this summer. One is a haunted, psychological thriller and the other is a classic superhero story. You can check it out on Amazon here.
I’m also completing the manuscript for my first creative nonfiction book. It’s due to the publisher in October. I’ll be sure to post updates as soon as I’m allowed and have more info!
This last bit of info might surprise people, but I’m beginning RCIA classes this September to join the Catholic Church. Why am I talking about this on my professional blog? Because even though it is a sincere matter of faith, it’s also tied to my cultural study of superhero archetypes. Don’t worry, that’s not supposed to make sense quite yet. I had planned on creating a separate blog to explore the process and themes, but that proved too cumbersome. So you can expect some upcoming posts here, chronicling my thoughts and philosophies during the process.
That’s all for now. Thanks for following my blog! I’ll post more regularly this fall, even returning to my original short essay format at times. Until then, please check out and support the various projects I’ve listed, if they strike your fancy. And stay tuned for more to come!
