I'm very pleased with how Sketchy Details has been going this month. As I've long suspected, if I don't take the weekend off, I keep my work pace up and feel better about the quality of the content on the site. I've also been able to post more content each day than I thought I could while working outside gigs and teaching after school programs. Here's the best content from April.
- Alan Wake and the Push of Video Game Action
- The Preston Files: Teaser 1
- Carrie: The Musical and the Spectrum of Spectacle and Suspense
- Spinning in Circles: Limbo and Structural Ambiguity
- Explore: Broodhollow
- I Am Alive and the Big Start
- Speed Grapher and The Push for Structural Innovation
- Quinni-Con 2013: Now That’s a Fan Convention
- Cosplay Candidate at Quinni-Con 2013
- On Gaming, Inclusion, and Fan-Fabricated Console Wars
- Read: Letters to an Absent Father
- End of Watch Review (Film, 2012)
- Trance Review (Film, 2013)
- The Place Beyond the Pines Review (Film, 2013)
- Macbeth Review (Broadway)
- Evil Dead Review (Film, 2013)
- The Dictator Review (Film, 2012)
For May, I have a few events lined-up that I'll be writing about. I'll also be finishing my Quinni-Con coverage and even covering a few things that were missed after New York Comic Con 2012.
I'm also happy to announce that there is a new theme for May. Welcome to AniMAY 2013. I will be putting up new content as often as I can about anime, manga, and Japanese entertainment culture. It's going to be fun. I have some really cool posts planned as well as plenty of room to try out new things and see what sticks. Let me know in the comments below what I should be covering as part of the AniMAY celebration.
May 2013 will also see the debut of The Preston Files. This is the new spin-off webcomic from Food Don't Go Stale in Space. I would love to make more FDGSIS, but it's not a practical option at the moment with all the collaboration that went on to make the series a reality. The Preston Files was always something I planned on running concurrently with FDGSIS. In a nutshell, The Preston Files exposes the creative process of freelance writer Preston who believes any idea could be a million dollar idea if handled the right way. Part pop culture/gag of the week, part journal comic, The Preston Files will come out every Saturday.
