Don't Sweat The Details

Amelius at 9:27AM, Feb. 3, 2019

Banes at 12:00AM, Aug. 2, 2018

Banes at 12:00AM, July 12, 2018




Last week, Steve Ditko passed away at the age of 90. Legend? Titan? Master? I'm not sure what kind of descriptor to use for this guy.

Adapting Myth to Modernity (part 1)

Tantz_Aerine at 5:03AM, Feb. 11, 2017



In a chat where we were discussing our comics, Pit-Face told me that if Bones from Putrid Meat is Odysseus, then Blitzov from Epic of Blitzov is Gilgamesh. And that very solid analogy of the two characters’ function in her stories, got me thinking about how myth of all sorts ...
