Paste Magazine recently released their annual ranking of the 60 Best Twitter Accounts, and I’m honored to have made the list at number six. I’ve always found Paste’s list to be thoughtful and comprehensive—a nice mix of celebrities, comedians, musicians and other interesting accounts worth a follow. This marks the fourth straight year I’ve been ranked in the top six (having twice been ranked number one).

By the way, that’s legendary ad man (and one of my personal heroes) David Ogilvy in my Twitter avatar. He once said: "The best ideas come as jokes. Make your thinking as funny as possible." That’s certainly something I try to do on Twitter. If you’d like to check out a sampling of some of my more popular tweets, take a gander here.

UPDATE (12/30): Here’s a nice review from TheForce.net, as well.

The hardcover compilation of my Darth Vader and the Ninth Assassin miniseries hits stores November 20th, just in time for holiday gift shopping. Available for pre-order through Amazon right now.
UPDATE (12/30): Dustin Cabeal, owner and editor of Comic Bastards, has named Ninth Assassin his top miniseries of 2013. He writes: “To be honest I never saw myself picking a Star Wars title as my best mini, but when you get right down to it this was a great series. Vader is an iconic character and this series not only captured that, but added to it as well. From beginning to end you see just how bad-ass Vader is and that’s especially joyful for anyone that’s grown tired of the Star Wars franchise like me. This series reminded me why Star Wars was cool to begin with and peeled back the jaded layers of adulthood and made me feel like a kid again.”

Husker fans, you might like this piece I wrote about comic book (and football schedule) artist Win Mumma. It ran in Hail Varsity magazine last year and is available now to read online. And if you like this kind of stuff, you might want to consider subscribing. Once again, I’ll have a column in each weekly issue, all football season long.

The fifth and final issue of my Vader miniseries hits comic book shelves August 21. Thanks to everyone who has kept up with the series. And thanks, especially, to the talented team of artists, inkers, and colorists who brought it all to life. It’s been a blast.
UPDATE (8/21): Roqoo Depot gives this issue a 5/5 (a perfect 25/25 for the series), as does Rockin’ Comics and Comic Bastards. Comic Bastards goes on to add: "I’m going to genuinely miss Tim Siedell’s corner of the Star Wars universe because it is some of the best storytelling the franchise has ever had. That’s right, ever, and I’m including the films in there as well."
