Introducing… The New Guy!

Today we’d like to welcome Joe Carallo, our newest weekly columnist here at ComicMix. Like all of our columnists, Joe will be speaking his mind as he sees fit, limited only by the bounds of sanity. And, like all of our columnists, Joe will be speaking from his own perspective and experiences, shedding much-needed light on issues critical to our medium. His bio lurks at the bottom of his column, along with a really cute photo. And, yes, his involvement in the [insertgeekhere] website involves their EIC Molly Jackson; the fact that Molly’s our now-second newest columnist is a pure coincidence. Well, maybe not.

Of course, this is not to say Joe won’t be goofing around from time to time. That, along with our bizarre lunch meetings, is a ComicMix tradition. I’ve known him for several years now, having been introduced to Joe by also-columnist Martha Thomases at one of her famous Chanukah donut parties. Martha maintains the salon movement on this annual basis, and I’ve met many an interesting person at these occasions. Why it didn’t dawn on me to ask Joe about writing for us as a columnist just goes to show how non-smart I’m can be.

Please feel free to comment. We’re going to have a good time here… starting… now!
