Format: Paperback
A wonderful and often hysterical collection of essays on comic books, science fiction and Hollywood. This book is an insightful look at pop culture which will make you think about what you read and see, and will crack you up at the same time.

Format: Paperback
"But I Digress" is a collection of Peter David's columns for Comic Buyer's Guide, from the early 1990s -- the first few years he wrote the column. Reading them in 2001 creates an interesting time-lapse effect, especially when he refers to the "recent" creation of Image, or the "recently concluded" Gulf War. Some of the columns are a bit dated, while others are more or less timeless; even the dated ones are worth reading, for a glimpse at the comics industry in the early ninties.
David has a marvelous sense of humor, and an eye for stupidity and inconsistency. His columns are entertaining, even when I have very little understanding of his subject matter. (Hey, I was only nine years old when these were current! What did I know back then?) He also explains his subject matter, which is very helpful. Looking back, it's interesting to observe which of his opinions and predictions were accurate and well-founded, and which weren't.
Basically, this is good entertainment, with information about comics writers, artists, publishers, and fans in the early 1990s. It's also a good, though indirect, look at Peter David. I would definitely be interested in a collection of his more recent columns.

Peter David has been writing a weekly column for Comic Buyer's Guide for years. This is a collection of his columns. There is something here for anyone who's enjoyed his fiction not just his comics. He talks about famous people, movie reviews, comics, Star Trek, TV shows, etc, etc.
It is a wonderful look inside the life of one of the nicest people in Comics.
