Dark Horse Present - A Dragonfly Flipz book Tribute

Here's a Dragonfly Flipz Book tribute to the Dark Horse Comic's re-launch of the "Dark Horse Comics Presents", their anthology comic book.  The original "DHP" series was a true favorite of mine in it's heyday at the height of the independent black and comic craze.  DHP introduce many creator owned properties like Steve Rude's Nexus, Mike Mignola's Hellboy, Paul Chadwick'S Concrete, Fran Miller's Sin City and "300".  I glad they're bring it back.

To celebrate, I've put together this video of Dragonfly Flipz Books based on properties published by Dark Horse.  Some, like the Concrete Comix Flipz™ book have been posted before,  But the Sin City Cinema Flipz™ and Lone Wolf and Cub 2100 Comix Flipz™ are being shown for the first time.  Of course, there is a back story to all these flip books, but let's just said they're still just concept demos, not for sale, and leave it at that.

Happy Birthday, Sam Woodyard (Jan. 7, 1925 - Sept. 20, 1988)

  Here is my annual tribute my father, Sam Woodyard, a great Jazz drummer, for legendary Duke Ellington.  I found this youtube clip which features a tasty drum solo by Sam.  Enjoy.

  I also like to thank Tom Pethic, a Jazz DJ on monday nights at JAZZ 90.1, in Rochester, NY.   Tom was playing the Duke Meets Coleman Hawkins CD, I called him in the studio just to thank him.  He then showcased Sam's playing for the rest of his show.  Thanks again, Tom.  I encourage Jazz fans world wide to visit JAZZ 90.1 and Tom Pethic's website.
