Too Busy Thinking About Batman vs Predator...So, Colin Smith was kind enough to invite me back to contribute another guest post for his final goodbye to Too Busy Thinking About My Comics, and I decided to
Yeah, yeah, I know what people are thinking, but I've hopefully staked my claim that it's actually a little gem of a series - by Dave Gibbons and Andy and Adam Kubert, no less! - that's really worth a second look.

The guest post is actually rather bittersweet, seeing as Colin's chosen to close the blog down and pursue other, paying, opportunities, but I'm glad I could participate in his farewell series of posts, even in just a small way.

And, more than a few times, his posts made me look at how I approach storytelling in a different light.
Of course, Colin took some time out to talk to myself and Bryan about Babble during the PR run for the book; it was a thoroughly enjoyable chat and I hope we can do it again for another blog or publication for a new project. The interview can be found at Too Busy Thinking here, if you're interested in reading it. You can find the man himself over on Twitter, too @Colin_TBTAMC.
