I was not anticipating the long lines and large crowds for Black Friday this year, but my shopping haul from this past weekend was delightfully fruitful. I decided it was time for a “Treat. Yo. Self.” spending spree (Tom Haverford-style from Parks and Recreation).

When Death Comes…

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Nov. 12, 2016



No matter what the genre, plot and general tone of your comic, death always is absolute.

"Every revolution is sparked by an art movement"

HippieVan at 12:00AM, Nov. 27, 2015


Jane Alexander, Butcher Boys

That happens to be a line from one of my favourite albums, a combination CD/graphic novel from an obscure now-defunct South African hip hop group.
