DC has a few small comics coming out this week, no big deal. Just, you know, a couple of home-brewed, indie titles you might not care about…they’re so small and insignificant, they’ll prolly only sell a couple of copies. S’no biggie…just, uhm- BEFORE WATCHMEN: MINUTEMEN #1 AND EARTH-2 #2 FEATURING GAY PEOPLE! CALL THE MEDIA! [...]

Yes you love comics, but do you like comics about love? Do you LIKE like them, you know, more than as a friend? Comic books are usually about punching crime in the gonads, or being a warrior mouse who lives in a medieval mouse kingdom. Some comics, however, are about real people and feelings. Difficult [...]
“Well, I’m back.” -Sam Gamgee I just spent a day on the Jersey shore with some family, and my return trip to Astoria, Queens is a four hour saga that will live in infamy in my memory for a long time to come. But I won’t use this space to describe the horrors of the [...]
Comic books are all the rage, and tomorrow’s star of the printed page will be the next big thing on the silver screen! Yep, Hollywood money is whipping up every able-bodied creator into a creative tizzy.

My only quam? Papa Lodge offers Archie a job, VP of Lodge Oil Holdings. Dopus accepts, despite having no qualifications and no idea what the gig entails, and you know that’s gonna spell T-R-O-U-B-L-E in Riverdale City.
Jughead should totally make his move on Betty now, btw.
