Closing out the week...

Today sees the addition of Elliott Serrano to the site. His column, COMIC CULTURE WARRIOR, opens up by discussing Stephen Colbert's run for President.

Also, Vince Moore concludes his powerful series on race and comics, "40 Acres and a Mule of My Own."

You don't want to miss either of these things. Honest.

This bit of PR went out this morning:


The Comic Culture Warrior is the Latest Addition to the Comics Columnist Community!

TEMPE, AZ, Friday, November 9, 2007-

The Comics Waiting Room ( is proud to announce the addition of columnist Elliott Serrano to the site. Serrano will be writing his column “COMIC CULTURE WARRIOR” for the site and exploring not only the contents between the covers of our favorite hobby, but also the trends, foibles, and general oddities of geek culture. With his sharp wit and observational skills, he’ll bring new and entertaining insights to light and keep readers smiling along the way.

“COMIC CULTURE WARRIOR” will appear on Fridays on a bi-weekly schedule, and the column will be archived at so that anyone who has missed an installment can easily catch up.

Comics Waiting Room owner and Editor-in-Chief Marc Mason had this to say about the addition of Serrano to the site: “I had the pleasure of getting to know Elliott at San Diego this year, so I’m excited to bring him onboard the site. It wasn’t easy; everywhere we went, he was swarmed by wide-eyed young girls entranced by his dreamy looks and geek glasses, so I wasn’t sure we’d be able to pull this off. Fortunately, his recent vow of celibacy has finally taken hold and he’s ready to put that nonsense behind him and do some writing. It should be a lot of fun, as long as he can stay focused and out of the clubs.”
