So, we’re giving away two extra large (XL) copies of this shirt away today on our Twitter feed. Don’t worry. Neither of these freebie tees are the one I’ve worn on and off to bed for the last eight years. Unless you want it to be. Follow us and RT. And good luck, creeps!
Happy Valen’s Day fellow nerderinos! Enjoy it, even if you’re not Minbari. ALSO! On a personal note, some advice when it comes to PDA’s this “holiday” that I try to stick to… “Please, Captain. Not in front of the Klingons.”

Part 1: I love Chris Ware. Bit redundant to say so this holiday season with everyone and their sister buying Building Stories, but with so much comic awesomeness that happened in 2012; between Charles Burn’s second installment to his X’ed Out trilogy, The Hive, and Brian K. Vaughn’s Saga…SAGA… It’s too easy for amazing comics [...]
So here we are at my second column of TRY SOMETHING NEW! already. Wasn’t too pleased with how the the first one came out, 20/20 hindsight and all, but we press on. New comics wait for no man or woman and so this column where I berate you for not buying enough new comics waits [...]

Every week I look forward to being mugged by an invisible assailant right in plain view of others. I have always found this gentleman thief, though thorough, to be fair. Maybe you’ve been robbed blind by this same perp. Its name is Wednesday, a.k.a. “New Comics Day.” I like this perp. Some people do not…and [...]

This is one of the more interesting titles hitting the shelves this week. From Last Gasp, Krampus the Devil of Christmas hardcover by Monte Beauchamp. Now available in Hardcover! In the early Christmas traditions of Europe, the “Krampus” was St. Nicholas’ dark servant – a hairy, horned, supernatural beast whose pointed ears and long slithering tongue [...]
Happy New Year! 2010′s gone- out with a hectic bang on my end of the screen- and I finally have Time Enough at Last to wish you a most agreeable 2011.
