Like any other backpack-toting American kid in the nineteen-nineties, the one thing I looked forward to each week (well, after TGIF) was Saturday morning cartoons. My absolute favorite show was X-Men The Animated Series which led to frequent trips to old, dusty comic shops to buy Series ...

What makes the “meat” of a story? What makes you fall in love with it, keep coming back for more watches or reads or whatever? I contend it has nothing to do with conflict or culminations or climaxes, those are merely generic structural plottings that are ...

Lifting the Block

kawaiidaigakusei at 12:00AM, March 7, 2016



I have been feeling inspired lately. It is not to be confused with the same wave of inspiration that usually happens when I listen to Bon Iver while driving down a highway at night (even though that also works). It is the type of inspiration where a story begins to ...

I'm not sure where I first heard of Li'l Abner. Maybe some bits and pieces in a Comic Review Magazine or something.

The Shmoo was a character on the old Flintstones cartoons I used to watch, and Lena Hyena had shown up on the movie Who Framed Roger ...

FEATURED COMIC --> The weird adventures of Armless Amy

kawaiidaigakusei at 12:00AM, Feb. 17, 2016



Little Amy is the cutest and sweetest little girl in the post-apocalypse. Of course, her adorable personality seems to attract the strangest of characters from a top hat wearing stranger, happy dolls, white rabbits, Sherry the living doll, Eloise, and Eustace.

This is a mature comic because it deviates from ...

Quackcast 254 - Sexism in your OWN work?

ozoneocean at 12:00AM, Jan. 19, 2016

LISTEN!

OMFG you sexist PIG! Heh… today we talk about trying to recognise sexism in your OWN work, what to do about it, and WHY. It turns out it can be very hard to do, and if you DO acknowledged it the instinct is to rationalise it away, justify it ...

And To All A Good Night

Banes at 12:00AM, Dec. 24, 2015



I love Christmas Eve. Possibly more than Christmas Day. Both are great fun, and reuniting with friends and relatives I rarely see is delightful of course.
