I’ve been to a number of Eisner Awards over the decades – it’s one of the highlights of San Diego Comic Con, and you can read this year’s results right here. But this year, it went in a stranger direction. Rushing to the awards, I was a little late as usual, I all but bumped […]

I enjoyed browsing the new release section at my local shop because it was a bombardment of different colors, shapes, and stylings to the eyes, making me “Ooooh!” and “Ahhhhh!” in delight. In the industry, sometimes the […]
