There is an Android app called Total Commander, and when this is paired with the USB plugin from a company called Paragon, it will let you mount NTFS-formatted cards and hard drives on your phone/tablet. It's a crapshoot, as the plugin is still in development, but I have it working just fine with both my Samsung phone and ASUS tablet. However, both of those devices also support ExFAT, so I rarely need NTFS access.

However, if you intend to read your comics at home, and don't want to deal with SD cards, just enable file-sharing on your PC, and then stream the media to your tablet/phone. If your tablet/phone lacks a file manager app, download ES File Explorer, and your network shared drive/folder will show up like a hard drive. You can even access FTP sites and WAN drives ("the cloud") if you want to get nerdy.

Fuck, I really have to remember to do shit like that. I have one of those mini private clouds for home use Got it for free but never bothered to set it up. Not a TON of storage, 1TB, maybe 2, but it'll do and has all the mobile apps needed to play with it and such.

I had file sharing issues with the comics back when I played around with it on the Kindle. Files in nested folders wouldn't open, but in the root folder would. If I was running the same OS across devices i'd be better for it.

Oddly enough the exfat formatted 64gb card runs fine. The Fat 32 128gb looks to work too. Quirks no matter which solution I use.

For the last week or two I've been pulling the Sandman retrospectives I did for Weird Tales out of the archives and posting them to my site, since they're no longer on the web. The first few are shaky until I hit my commentary stride, but by the end I think they get pretty good.

Here they are in full:

I've become a friend of Young Terrorists, it's mad.

I think the controversy over Secret Empire, which includes folks burning the comics, is ridiculously hilarious in a sad kind of way.

I wrote a 10-year retrospective on Spider-Man and Flash artist Mike Wieringo, who died at 44 a decade ago, for Legacy.co. Check it out:

Remembering Spider-Man Artist Mike Wieringo, 10 Years Later

Mike Wieringo probably wouldn’t have expected that he would become one of the most beloved names in American comic books.

After all, he was an artist who drew Marvel and DC superheroes in a joyful, exuberant, cartoony style during the 1990s, a time when the rest of the industry was moving toward darker, grittier, more hyper-realistic art.

But now, ten years after Wieringo’s untimely death from a heart attack at 44, two of the characters he was most thoroughly associated with – Spider-Man and the Flash – are both headed to the screen in new Hollywood blockbusters.

Particularly in the case of Marvel Studios’ new “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” which hits theaters Friday, it’s become apparent that what the moviegoing audience loves is that same playful sense of fun that was always such a huge part of Weiringo’s approach to making comics.

And these days, more of the industry appreciates it, too.

“He was ahead of the curve,” says Wieringo’s frequent collaborator, writer Mark Waid. “I cannot count the number of times in recent years that younger artists have told me what an influence Mike was on them.”

I read that weeks ago when someone linked it in my FB feed. I meant to come right over here and compliment you, once I noticed your name in the byline, but I forgot until now.

Hah! Well thanks, I appreciate it. I was glad to get a chance to write it.

A tribute to the just passed Len Wein I wrote for Legacy.

http://www.legacy.com/news/celebrity-de ... nd-the-all

Len Wein’s name may not be widely famous outside of comic-book circles the way Stan Lee’s, Jack Kirby’s and Neil Gaiman’s are. But perhaps it should be.

Wein, who died this weekend at the age of 69, was the co-creator of two of the most enduring pop-culture characters of the past half-century: Wolverine and the Swamp Thing. As a writer, his 1970s reinvention of Marvel Comics’ X-Men eventually became one of the most popular comic books in the world — which then led to a film series that sparked today’s superhero box office takeover. And as an editor, he oversaw the production of perhaps the most praised graphic novel in history, Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ Watchmen.

Quietly, working in a medium that only a small percentage of the population was paying attention to at the time, Wein helped change the shape of pop culture itself, influencing how it looked and, in doing so, inviting a much wider audience to openly embrace their love of fantastical stories.
