Storytelling. It’s more than just an abstract concept. It’s something that we all do. In my case, I occasionally write comic book stories.
So here’s a bit of shameless self-promotion. It’s still about marketing and creativity, except it’s about the other creative stuff that I do. In this case, I am currently writing the Richie Rich comic book series.
As a kid growing up, I absolutely loved the Richie Rich comics. The fantasy of limitless wealth, cool gadgets, and the most awesome butler in the world was a dream for a kid like me. Even when I grew up and became “too cool” for comic books, I held on to my modest collection of Richie Rich comics. By good fortune (and some good friends at Ape Entertainment), I managed to write some issues of Richie Rich.
The links below give you a sense of what I’ve been doing outside of marketing. I hope you check out a few of the reviews…and the comic books, of course!
