Comic thoughts: Transformers #1-12 (2019)

SPOILER WARNING: This blog entry is a spoiler-heavy thought essay (I dare not call this a “review”) about the first 12 issues of IDW Transformers comics to come out this year. IDW got the license to the Transformers comics back in 2005, following the dissolution of Dreamwave Productions. It was the first time I’d heard …

My Perfect Friendship

One time, I was in the passenger seat in my friend’s car. I had just bought Hall & Oates’ Greatest Hits, and had the window rolled down. I just went, “YEAAAAHHH!!!” out of ironic excitement for this CD I had just purchased. “WHAT!!!!” said the driver next to me, in his best Dave Chapelle-as-Lil Jon …

“Take a cab!!”

Once I was on the bus with a stinky dude. I politely turned my head and blocked my nose with my hand. When he went to get off the bus, he looked directly at me and said, “If you can’t stand the smell, take a cab!!” Damn dude. If you know you stink, take a …

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark

So I’m not a horror guy. Never have been, probably never will be. I mean, sure I’ve seen my fair share of horror movies. I get the tropes, I understand the adrenaline rush people get from being scared in a safe way. But it’s probably the genre I watch the least frequently, at least out …

Old PsychoAndy.com Banners

While messing around on the Internet Wayback Machine, I was able to find a bunch of the old header banners for PsychoAndy.com Back in 2006, when you’d load the page, a different random one of these banners would adorn the top of the website. I’d honestly forgotten that the site did this over a decade …

Updates: June 2019

I’ve added some new work to the Illustrations Page, as well as a whole new “Retro Design” Page, where I showcase some of my late 80s/early 90s-inspired graphic design work. You know, the kind of thing you might have gotten on a Trapper Keeper.

Zangief vs TMNT

Back in the days of America Online chatrooms, role-playing games were kind of a big thing. Not proper RPG systems like Dungeons & Dragons, but more freeform-style playing. And, for whatever reason, this morning I had been thinking about one time, when my friend Dané invited me to join his Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game …

Hawk & Croc’s 15th.

(From the end of New Hawk & Croc Chapter 3. Art by me, written by Brandon A. Mayo.) It was on this day in 2003 that the first strip of Hawk & Croc went live. My co-creator, Brandon A. Mayo, and I may have been a bit dormant in the last year-and-a-half, but real life …

Played a Fool

I was listening to Thanks For Supporting Random: Mega Ran Mix Tape vol 2 (available at MegaRan.com) this morning, when his track “Played a Fool” came on. Ran raps about a day when he was short on dough, and decided to sell his copy of Spider-Man (1990) #1 (pictured above) to the local comic shop. …
