Blogs I Like: News from ME

News from Me is a blog created by writer Mark Evanier. Mark's written for just about every medium you can imagine, ranging from a stint as an editorial assistant to Jack Kirby in the early 1970s to television work like Garfield and Friends and Scooby Doo. He's even published a few books over the years about folks like Kirby and June Foray.

Mark's got a lot of insight into the entertainment business and it's always fun to read grounded opinions on a community that is rarely ever grounded. He's also got first-hand experience with such notable moments in geek history like the controversial creation of Scappy Doo, the life and death of the old Dungeons & Dragons cartoon and has an encyclopedic knowledge of classic comedy. All that and he's the co-creator (with Sergio Aragones) of Groo the Wanderer, a feat that will surely reserve him a spot in Valhalla.
