We’re a few minutes away from the Official West Coast Fables Panel kicking off and we’ll be liveblogging. Get ready to hit refresh. The West Coast Fables Panel has moved to ECCC from SDCC because Willingham is just tired of the crowds at San Diego. Mark Buckingham is only going to the Fabletown and Beyond […]
While I suspect the answer is “make comics on your own and hope somebody likes them,” how to break in is a common question and the Breaking Into Comics the Marvel Way will be kicking off in a few minutes and we’ll be liveblogging. Get ready to hit the update button. Our cast of characters: […]

If we didn’t have a previous gig, we’d be all over this. $20 for a hand-bound limited edition of essential 90s artifacts? Hell YEAH. Find out where it all began!

Karagoz Contributors: Thomas Wellmann, Nadine Redlich, Warwick Johnson Cadwell, Olaf Albers, Max Fiedler, Rita Fürstenau, Lomp, Michael Meier, Lisa Röper and Andreas Schuster.

To celebrate, the issue features some Judge Dredd, a little Strontium Dog, and a new Brian Bolland […]
