This Sunday, April 21st at Public Assembly in Williasmburg its the 2nd annual BROOKLYN ZINE FEST! Come out and support bright self publishing folks who all look like they could use a shower!
If you’ve never seen this amazingly campy sci-fi horror schlockfest you’re missing out. No hyperbole. If you have experienced its majesty (“It’s Craazzyy!”) you most likely get all or part of The Dickies theme song stuck in your head every now and then, and are wonderfully haunted by images of popcorn guns and other sideshow grotesqueries.

Vaughn’s Saga…SAGA… It’s too easy for amazing comics [...]

We are indeed on Google+. Come share wonderful, geeky stuff with us! I’ll be Hanging out On Air at 4pm today… fingers crossed. Still working out the logistics, but the plan is to chat from the new shop’s basement as we process this week’s shipment, discuss some of tomorrow’s new releases, make a really neat-o [...]
Verizon has failed to install our communications when they said they would and subsequently we have no phones or data lines at present time. We apologize to all our customers for the inconvenience.

Grant Morrison, a writer of trashy “funny-books,” has been made a Member of the British Empire. The decline of Western civilization now seems to be complete.
