My 2014 Writing

Here is a look back at the writing, criticism, etc. I did on comics and graphic novels in 2014. My work appeared at Hyperallergic, the Comics Journal, in the Chicago Reader, and here, at my site. We moved this year, so some things were put on hold, etc., but I think I produced a fair amount of stuff in 2014 when I wasn’t at my day job or packing boxes, right?

…and like everyone else I know, I am always looking to work with more editors/publications. Let’s do it:

Introductions and what to expect at Minor at Heart

I’m a writer and editor based in Brooklyn, New York (since 2006, after moving from outside of Philadelphia, PA). I covered new music for years for a number of magazines, alt weeklies, and online publications, but in recent years, I’ve shifted my writing focus toward the comics medium. I’m writing critically about comics and graphic novels for a handful of editors, and I’ll be posting short pieces on comics — new and old — here at Minor at Heart.

I’ll write about what I’m reading in Recent Reads, but as I spend a lot of time on the Web, I’ll also post loads of links to other worthwhile pieces of comics, film/TV, and music criticism. Unrelated to comics, I dig good investigative reporting, stories about our news media, and journalism industry news, too, so expect aggregation-type posts in a category I’ll call Clickable.
