Chronicling the creative process for Pop Zeus, the forthcoming Guided By Voices/Bob Pollard tribute comic- including sketches, concepts, finished art and whatever else is in my brain at the moment.

Jim Greer "Artifical Light" Book Tour

Went on Amazon a while back and apparently I now have something called a Plog. And in that Plog was this announcement from Jim Greer, as is his wont. Greer is a former editor/writer for Spin magazine, turned Guided By Voices bassist from '94-'96, turned author and biographer of GBV in Hunting Accidents. Rumor also has it that Greer may be collaborating with Robert Pollard and acclaimed director and Bob fan Steven Soderbergh on a big screen rock musical.

Haven't read the book, but I'll prolly go to the San Francisco reading just for shits and giggles (by the way, Artificial Light is also a song by Robert Pollard from the excellent solo LP Waved Out). Here is the announcement...
"Hi, anyone. I'm reading from my novel Artificial Light in the following cities at the following times. If you're interested in this sort of thing, please do come and say hello.
