Comixology will be producing original, creator-owned comics on their digital platform. We talk about the Forbes article about it.
We’re not opposed to in-store promotion of characters that have a current media presence.
If you could only hear the sounds Patrick makes when reading the monthly Previews catalog for the first time each month.
We got a sweet Eisner “For Your Consideration” package in the mail.
It’s great when parents and kids engage with comics as a family. It’s not great when parents ignore their kids and let them run screaming around the store.
Thanks, Patrons!
Did you miss our Adventure Time Art Show? I mean, you probably did…
FLAVOR from Image is real good! So is MAN OF STEEL.
We ordered a bunch of different Action Comics #1000 covers (yay!) and Amazing Spider-Man #800 covers (not yay!). We’re probably not doing that again…
We end with a random Divorce Gun song from the upcoming album “The Waning Days of the World.”
