State of the Industry – February 2016

February sales in the comic book market are traditionally slow, with 2016 continuing that (trend) as numbers dipped to lows not seen in nearly a year. Only three titles topped 100k for the month, though a fourth came so close it may as well be considered an even 100 thousand. Marvel dominated the top ten Read More

A Novel Review: Made to Kill

It isn’t often that a book catches me with its cover, but Adam Christopher’s Made to Kill did just that. Two dimensional art deco of a robot in a trenchcoat and fedora?

“Ah, good ol’ trustworthy beer. My love for you will never die.” ~ Homer Simpson While covering the 2015 New York Comic Con for another website, I attended a panel that crossed over into the areas of brewing and comic books.
