    Batman: Knightfall This is an iconic story in the Batman universe. It was a huge event starting in 1993 and it crossed over into every related Batman title.

  • Jack of Fables Comes to an End

    I’ve been following the adventures of Jack Horner a.k.a. Jack the Giant Slayer a.k.a. Jack Frost since I first discovered this comic book series. It’s been a great read . . . but all great things must come to an end. I’ll admit that it felt like the series ended with the last issue. I […]

  • A Free Method Book For Beginning Music Classes

    When I first started teaching music, I used the resources that were on hand at my school. The method book we had was Standard of Excellence and I wasn’t really happy with it. Almost all of the pieces used the same five notes, were in the same key, and it was rare that new music […]
