Epic Beards of Review: Time Warp #1 (One Shot) and more!

So, I've been told I should update my blog more often.  Here are a few reasons why:

  • Fellow bloggers over at Charlie the Cavalier and The Epoch Life have been wondering where the new stuff is.  Point taken.  I've been traveling abroad in Germany as well as teaching Upward Bound and still holding down the managerial duties here at the coffee shop.  Not to mention some top-secret Traveling Tales projects coming up, there's reasons, but they're more like excuses.
  • I was awarded "Blog of the Week" over at NEPA Blogs the week of July 16.  My brother was quick to point out that I really couldn't be awarded with such awesome because I hadn't updated my blog in over two months, and therfore the point was moot.  Lisa over at "Charlie" was kind enough to mention that they film their segments months in advance.  Brother feud is a tie, but he can't even grow a beard.
  • I wrote a pretty fun review of Time Warp #1 over at my new friends at Strip Tease.  Not nearly as scathing as it sounds, but a nice review site for comics.  Here's my review.

  • I've also been given tons of free books from my friends over at Angry Robot Books!  I've finished sf/spy thriller The Lives of Tao by Wesley Chu, detective novel Cambodian Book of the Dead by Tom Vater and am barreling through the fantasy Seven Forges by James A. Moore.  All SOLID selections, but I've gotten to where I don't expect anything less from them!
 Other than that, there's plenty going on here at the Beard, so don't fret, beardlets!  More to come soon!
