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 [...]

Most good books get adapted into nearly every conceivable form these days. If there isn’t a movie there is probably a TV show. If either of those aren’t around chances are a comic book was hanging around or is planned. Depending on the source material my attention span for every iteration of a famous book [...]
I think this is officially the most badass thing ever. Via the awesome Topless Robot, apparently, as Conan is wont to do, Mr. Schwarzenegger has run California into the ground.
