The Claws Come Out

You should definately check out Pat Lewis' new book The Claws Come Out. Here's what I say on the back cover quote, "Pat Lewis' stories in THE CLAWS COME OUT ooze originality and charm, ranging from delightfully shocking pantomime to sitcom-ready characterization doused in a fresh coat of blood. Not since the likes of 'Topper' or 'Bell, Book, and Candle' has there been an occult romantic comedy that so successfully balances witty, slice-of-life dialogue against blackly comic thrills.", and I mean every word I say. Really fun stuff.

Best Cast Ever!

Clockwise from left: Diedrich Bader (Fiskerton, in hat), Me (in other hat), Fred Schaeffer (Producer), Sam Lerner (Zak Saturday), Nicole Sullivan (Drew Saturday), Scott Jeralds (Director/Producer, kneeling), Brandon Sawyer (Story Editor, kneeling lower), Phil Morris (Doc Saturday), Corey Burton (Argost, Van Rook), Will Friedle (Doyle), and Lisa Schaeffer (Casting/Voice Director, no relation to Fred). We wrapped our last episode last wednesday at Salami Studios, and it was, as always, a blast. Not all casts are this fun to work with! Thanks a million, guys.

A Little More Background

The background treatment was probably the hardest thing to nail down on the Secret Saturdays, and Tristin Cole really came to my rescue. More than a few times! Her work on the show served to impress and inspire the rest of us. (above image from her stellar work on the late, lamented, Plastic Man cartoon).
