We have two weeks left until the open call for submissions for Beyond- the queer sci-fi/fantasy comic anthology are closed!
If you’re thinking of submitting (and we hope you are!) please make sure to have your pitch sent to us by December 15th, 2013.
Beginning today, The Belmont Goats now have their own identity online.
What you might previously have been following as Urban Goats PDX now will be the home for discussions about the overall vision of urban goats. If you specifically want to follow the herd pictured above — the one you’ve come to know and love over the course of 2013 — as it transitions out of the so-called Goat Field into the challenges of the future, just look for us here, on the web, and on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter under this new name.
It’s the same herd, and the same people, but now called what, frankly, you’ve already been calling them all along anyway.
Help my goat bros find a new home!
Anonymous asked: is there anything more disturbing than judge doom from roger rabbit?
I’m told there’s a Raggedy Ann & Andy cartoon that comes close.
ETA: The noises the Pendulums make in Silent Hill 3.
Anonymous asked: Name a villain you'd love to write (or two, if there's one you'd prefer to write dialogue for, as opposed to a plot).
Doctor Doom, Loki, and any villain who’d be a hero in a non-superhero universe. Those guys fascinate me.
letao asked: Can you expand on the Christmas tree fire? How did the opportunity come to be?
Like most stories, it’s actually less entertaining with context. I have pals who collect trees left out for the trash, dry them out, and make awesome bonfires.
Anonymous asked: what's the biggest thing you've ever set on fire?
A large pile of Christmas trees. It was PRETTY FUCKING AWESOME.
Anonymous asked: What's a comics series you suspect you'd love but have never read, or never read more than a tiny bit of?
Sixth Gun. I know, I know. I’ve been intending to for ages. IT IS MY GREATEST SHAME.
douglaswolk asked: What are some habits that you find endearing in your friends but that they may not even consciously be doing?
When you are about to ask a question, you half smile and look shifty-eyed for a sec like a cartoon kid who is scheming mischief, and it is adorable beyond all reason.
Anonymous asked: Are there stories in comics or prose you wish you'd never read?
Yes, but mostly ones that were redundant to other works by the same creators that I also didn’t like all that much. I’ll take godawful-but-interesting over boring any day.
