Lapham Watch 2008 Continues

Filed under: Blurbs — Jonathan Bernhardt @ 7:14 pm

David Lapham has returned to the internet with a blog. You will not be surprised by its URL.

Feel free to go over there and comment on his promo article for Young Liars about how much you wish he was working on Stray Bullets instead. I hear he loves it when people do that.

So far, he’s promised us harrowing tales from his childhood, which is the stuff I’m primarily looking forward to from the blog, but has posted only nice little tidbits about Young Liars, which the FBB Braintrust did not very much approve of, and Orson Welles, which to my knowledge the FBB Braintrust has no real feelings on one way or the other. Still! It’s good to see him excited about things, and having fun majorly interacting with the net for the first time in recent memory (though El Capitan Books could probably use a website where I can give them money in exchange for their comics), but since he’s one of the best creators in comics today, hopefully he won’t spend too much time giving us free what he could be drawing pictures of and charging for.

Seriously, stay away from the Internet, David! It will bring you nothing but tears.


  1. Didn’t we try to buy the el capitan website registry once?

  2. That really does sound like something we’d do

  3. This part of the FBB Braintrust has very strong pro-Orson Welles feelings. F for Fake also happens to be the only movie of his I’ve seen in theaters.

    So basically what I’m saying is that David Lapham needs to write more Stray Bullets.
