On The Fly - The Red Panda - Another Local Con - Crusader Rabbit - The Sixth Gun

In this episode I talk about a wonderful original art page that I got from a comic that is based on the wonderful podcast radio show: The Red Panda - http://www.decoderringtheatre.com/

Visited a local con and managed to come away with only one book... but in the process forgot to buy something that I wanted to pick up there!

There's a set of Crusader Rabbit cartoons out on DVD that has over 10 hours of the character I remember from my childhood.

The Sixth Gun comics were going for really high prices.

This time I go a bit off topic to talk about my thoughts and experience with various eBook readers. I haven't tried them all, so I can only tell you about the ones that I've tried, but I hope it's of help to those trying to decide if digital prose is for them or not.

Jon's first KK blog post

I'm back from vacation, and I'm ready to rule the world!!!!

I'm going to try and help Bruce with the blog postings... much to Bruce's chagrin. :)

So in this initial blog posting I'd like to encourage everyone to visit the Comic Book Wiki

So, in closing, I'd also like to ask everyone to give the KK crew suggestions on topics you'd like to hear us discuss, debate, and destroy. :)

Please comment!
