Operation Minicomic Kickstarter

Minicomics on Kickstarter? I’ve done a few comics fundraisers on Kickstarter now. The first one – I lost money on it in the end. The second one – still in sort of limbo but was only barely – financially speaking successful. But with ERAS: Parrish, while it didn’t pull in as much money as I’d […]

Fake Geek Girl Spotted In Seattle

The Fake Geek Girl, long suspected to exist but never seen, was photographed by an amateur cryptozoologist as the elusive Girl was leaving a Simon Helberg signing at Gold K Comics. Clad in what some witnesses believe was a Target Batman tee shirt and others a Wal-mart Avengers hoodie (though most agreed she had no […]

SPX Weekend Fun Times

While I myself won’t be at the Small Press Expo this weekend, contributors to the site including Darryl Ayo, Jon Hex, Joe Hunter and friend of the site Phil Kahn will be there. Say “Hi” to them and ask them for the Nerdcenaries business cards which they don’t have… crap. Also next week is our […]

The Subtle Insanity of Grant Morrison’s Worlds

I’ve been reading a lot of Grant Morrison – All Star Superman, Doom Patrol and I’ll be working on reading everything else. Morrison has this great ability, almost comparable to Kirby, to just toss out these intensely understandable but dark ideas.

Lady Action Stars on the Rise

But I refuse to actually talk about the film, so let’s talk about Black Widow instead, and what her role means in the trending of […]

At Least She Existed At All

So Helena Bertinelli died this week. You know, Huntress? (Of course you do.) World’s Finest issue #1 came out today, formally introducing us to Earth-2’s Helena Wayne, our current Huntress, and her buddy, Power Girl (who I’ll probably talk about next week). You can read the preview pages here. Helena Wayne isn’t a new character by […]


Show and Tell

One of the really cool things about comic books is that they’re a ~*visual storytelling medium*~. They’re really special! On the other hand, they still have to follow a lot of basic storytelling conventions, and sometimes…… Well sometimes there is a lack of communication or trust between a writer and his artist, and I get […]
