Island #1 (Image Comics, July 2015)

Risk. Not the strategy board game that made your cousin cry that one time, but real risk. It’s something that I feel isn’t seen much in the mainstream comic book landscape.

Pratchett has been one of the most brilliant voices in science fiction and fantasy for decades, and the world of literature has lost a bit of its light and a lot of itsContinue reading “Sir Terry Pratchett 1948 – 2015”

Current Proof of Life: Current Sound: Current Rambling: I should not be awake. I should not be out of bed. I go back to work tonight, for another long stretch of shifts making pizzas for the denizens of the night. I should get my rest while I can.
