Anonymous asked: I feel like I'm in a weird place. I don't have the money to buy comics, movies, or games on any kind of a regular basis, aside from anthologies at the library and a couple of random, years-old issues from time to time. (60c ancient Justice League comics? YES, PLEASE.) I look at the geek community and it feels so homey and right, but at the same time, like I'll never really be a part...

sirmitchell: I’m having a really hard time understanding my country right now. I’m seeing an overwhelming amount of apathy, laced with immaturity, on a level that is unbearable. Democrats, Republicans, and every other bastard in Washington (minus a few like Kucinich, Paul, Sanders) do not give a single shit…

Chicks Dig Comics
Hey, so, I have an essay in this anthology, which is now available for pre-order: So, you should do that, okay? It is full of good stuff, by good people (of whom I am one of the least impressive—it’s a veritable “who’s who” of amazing ladies and lady-friendly dudes in and around comics).

joekeatinge: I read this Bloomberg article on the sale of Roy Lichtenstein’s “I Can See the Whole Room!… And There’s Nobody in It!” and got pretty livid. So much so I had a hard time working on anything else. I decided to let Bloomberg know and I’ve reprinted the letter I sent both writers and their editor…
EXCLUSIVE: Caitlín R. Kiernan Returns to Comics... →
Remember that biiiiiig Dark Horse announcement I was teasing last week? Yeah. This is it. Interview with Caitlín, plus a preview of Steve Lieber’s fantastic line art, behind the link. (Plus, of course, that gorgeous Greg Ruth cover you saw last week, now complete with title.) I’m still a little bowled over that this is real.
The Lickable New Valve Book →
In my dubious defense, I did not choose the title of this blog post. In fact, I specifically suggested that readers refrain from licking the shiny, beautiful spot gloss on the cover of Valve Presents, whether or not it happens to taste like candy. That said, if people felt the need to get a readin’ copy and a lickin’ copy of this book, I would not judge them. Sometimes, you just gotta...
