Uncensored pop culture criticism and comics creation conversation.
To buy a copy of the Time Log one-shot comic book, visit the the Amazon Kindle store, DriveThruComics.com, or the AudioShocker store.
such a tease, give us issue 1 already nick!
Don’t make me do it Nick. Don’t make me…..invoke the t-shirt!
does Pittsburgh really have a Stephen Foster monument?
yup. it’s essentially a performing arts building, but yeah.
@Kaylie: specifically, Time Log involves the Stephen Foster statue, which is prominently placed on a popular road AND right in front of the city’s largest public library (right across the street from the Memorial building Neal posted about).
for more, check out this opinion piece by Tony Norman, who’s a huge comic book fan (and Wednesday comic shop regular at my local shop, Phantom). oddly enough, he put out his opinion column about the Foster statue the same week that the Time Log one-shot was released.
And, for the record, I’ve been ranting about that statue since no later than 1999, though I’m sure many people come upon it and similarly can’t believe that it exists in such a prominent spot (it used to be tucked away in a graveyard somewhere, I think, in Homestead). Hopefully Time Log give proper outlet to all those folks like me that have shaken their fists in fury at it.
i was totally unaware of the statue or its problematic implications. very informative. thanks, guys! now i will be fully prepared to read Time Log. ;)
thx for asking. because of your question, i wrote a post scheduled to go up on Wednesday evening about the Foster statue and its historical context in relation to Time Log.
