Haspiel’s “Bzzt” and Buzz from Publishers Weekly

April 23rd, 2009 by Larry Smith

We’re proud to present the 27th installment of Next-Door Neighbor, SMITH’s all-true tale of the people next door, created by some of our favorite writers and artists. “Bzzt” comes from NDN’s very own editor, Dean Haspiel. Haspiel takes us back to his days living in Alphabet City, right by a Con-Ed plant, and next to a neighbor who he was convinced was a “robot sent from the future with a secret mission to insulate the walls of Lower East Side tenements with human guts and brain.” Commenting on the comic, a reader named Jen Ferguson writes, “Each page has a nice off-balance feel and angled views that make it seem a post-earthquake dystopia at twilight.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.

For 26 more stories, including George O’Connor’s, “Don’t Call Me Ishmael,” a tale of O’Connor’s obsessive hunt for an elusive mouse, check out the NDN archives. Publishers Weekly offered high praise of “Don’t Call Me Ishmael,” calling it “reminiscent of Moby Dick….as the title implies” (scroll to the bottom of the above link for the item). And check out the doc shop RADAR’s mini-documentary on the making of Next-Door Neighbor. It’s just three minutes and pure genius.

    Microsoft Hotmail is getting a makeover. At least, that’s what some leaked screenshots are showing. The service, which today is still branded under the “Windows Live” umbrella, is going to be slimmed down and simplified, giving it a Metro-style look and feel.
