In each episode of Gweek, Dean Putney and I invite a guest to join us in a discussion about recommended media, apps, and gadgets. This time our guest is Eric McClellan. He stumbled backwards into his (very awesome) career in advertising as he fell further away from his adolescent fantasy of drawing Superman for a living. He now spends his days obsessively doodling in pursuit of the perfect "S" symbol and communicating with his 14 year old daughter via Instagram and Snapchat.
Here's what we talked about:
Hawkeye by Matt Fraction. Eric calls it "The Rockford Files of superhero comics."

The Man with the Getaway Face. The second Parker novel by Richard Stark. Excellent 1960s crime fiction about a cold-blooded heist artist. And don't miss Darwyn Cookes' fabulous graphic novel adaptations of the Parker books.
And much more!

The Atmos R2 may be bigger than the brand’s previously-released vapes, but we argue that in this case it’s definitely a good thing. A bigger heating chamber means more room for packing it full.
