FEATURED COMIC --> Monkey Nukes

ozoneocean at 12:00AM, June 12, 2019



Monkey Nukes is a very enjoyable story comic. Once you start it you'll soon be engrossed in the lives and the struggles of the characters as they go about their days, bursting with potential and secrets in 1980s west London… I could go on but Simonmackie explains it far ...

This Way to the Egress

Banes at 12:00AM, May 3, 2018



PT Barnum was a fascinating character, running “freak shows”, museums, and concert tours, and operating as an author and legislator/politician.

Apparently the phrase attached to him, “There's a sucker born every minute” is not necessarily something he

As shocking as it is to modern sensibilities, Barnum ...

The Comedy Plot, Toolbox Edition (part one)

Banes at 12:00AM, May 11, 2017

Hello again!

I'm gonna continue for the next two or three weeks about “The Comedy Toolbox” approach to comedy structure.

Characters based on Human Beings

HippieVan at 12:00AM, Nov. 25, 2016

There are days that challenge me. There are days that mould me. There are days that have a significant impact on my day-to-day grind. Last Wednesday was one of those days.
