When the Hero Is the Villain

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, June 4, 2022



A mustache-twirling villain is awesome fun! Someone who basks in their villainy and enjoys every bit of popping the toddler's balloon and kicking the occasional puppy while hatching evil plans.

And we’re back with Fantastic Bestiary number 6. Being the number 6 in this series of articles I thought I’d bring up a mythic creature of a particularly devilish kind of aestethic. And as this week’s featured comic, featured by our beloved Ozoneocean, happened to be about ...

Pets in Comics

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, May 14, 2022



Pets are intimate companions that get us through the day. Cats, dogs, rabbits, rats, snakes, fish, you name it- they help us in their own way. And yet not many characters in fiction or comics tend to have them. I for one don't include animals at all in my ...

I've talked at times about how, as I make Without Moonlight, I have to constantly make choices on what to include and what not to from …reality.
