LA Banks will be at Comic Con in July and Harlem Book Fair so check us both out. Speaking of Comic Con & comics, stay tuned for my interviews with Gary Phillips and of course Philly native Mat Johnson.
P.S. I was in 30th Street Station, Philadelphia (setting for my second novel, as fans know) and I noticed an old black women, Bible on her knee, banged-up suitcase and stuffed paper bag at her feet, watching Fox News on an overhead monitor. Laura Ingraham (is she an actual journalist?) was on braying about Obama, then Nancy Reagan...who knows? Anyway I swear this old lady clucked her tongue and said "Why don't someone at that channel slap the taste out that bitch's mouth? Ain't nobody on that station got no sense, or ain't mean 'n shady?" That made my crowded, late Amtrak ride home a little bearable. By the way, catch Rolling Stone's piece on Chris Rock this month.
