Have you ever had one of those songs that gets stuck in your head for days…weeks…years? Sure you have. These are the songs that always make the cut. The songs on repeat. We all have them. I have a ton. Welcome back to Endless Loop.
“Moonlight Sonata – Piano Sonata No. 14 (Movement 1)” by Beethoven
I know it’s hoity-toity and as pretentious as all hell, and could possible be viewed as a written foray into pseudo-intellectualism on my part, but I’m totally riffing on classical music today.

This book is f$%kin’ crazy!!!
Seriously, I was wandering around the best comic shop in Southern California last week, The Comic Bug, and asked co-owner Mike if there was anything new he would recommend. Well, Mike casually put Geof Darrow’s The Shaolin Cowboy No. 1 from Dark Horse in my hands and after glancing through it and falling IN LOVE with the art (something I almost never buy a book based on) I added it to my pile for check out. Several hours later, after I’d gotten home and clocked through my required reading list (and lately that IDW TMNT has risen almost to the top of that list – but that’s a story for another column) I picked up Shaolin and opened the front cover only to fall head-long into the most insane two-page story prelude f text I’ve ever encountered. I’m not even going to try and describe it here – you’re simply going to have to seek this one out for yourself, it’s that insane.

Last year when Neil Gaiman first announced that he would be returning to Vertigo to pen a new story about The Lord of Dreams I was instantly elated. While it’s true that in 2013 most everyone is a bit burned out on sequels, prequels, spin-offs and the like, Mr. Gaiman’s classic series Sandman – which ran for approximately eight years from 1989 to 1996 – is a complete epic that, in my mind at least, retains all of the power that it had over me from the first time I read it and remains unsullied by time – a remarkable story that effortlessly weaves the nuances of the beauty, tragedy and triumphs of life into a fable for the ages. Sandman has remained pretty much pure as the driven snow for many of those that have carried it through two subsequent decades since its realization, two decades that have given it time to live and breathe in our hearts and minds.
