In an age of internet flame wars and giant squids of anger, it’s great seeing people debate religion in a way that is, yes, offensive, but not hurtful.

Comics solicitations are (no pun intended) becoming the bane of some writers’ existence. In an era where your four issue story arc can be ruined months ahead of time because of online records, available to everyone, it’s hard to keep some things close to the breast … feathers…

For those of you who’ve somehow managed not to pay what you want for almost $200 of Star Wars comics, I applaud your iron will. Also, you’re bantha fodder.
We try to get all our posts up before sundown, but every once in a while, we find something that needs to be shared: kind of like a Midnight Snack. Enjoy!
