Actually I don’t even need to write anything, as the Outhouse already summed it up with CROSSED TORTURE VARIANT CONTROVERSY SPARKS SURPRISINGLY CIVIL DEBATE ON INTERNET. It’s true.

Autoptic is new indie arts festival with a comics component (or a CAF, as I like to call them, or comic art festival) that was held last weekend in Minneapolis. (It has a groovy tumblr here.) It was by all account splendid, but the account that matters the most to us is as always the […]
Roger Langridge – my personal choice for the next Batman – will see his run on ‘The Muppets’ collected into a Marvel omnibus next year. Originally published by Boom Studios whilst they had the rights to Disney properties, this omnibus will collect four series-worth of material in hardback. Life’s a fillet of fish! Steve Morris […]
