The Secret Life of Crows

I love a skillfully drawn, lovingly written comic book. That’s the long and the short of it.  Oh, expand? Happy to!

What can be said about The Secret Life of Crows that hasn’t already been said? Oh, that’s right: everything, because
this was an incredibly unique bit of fiction!  I haven’t seen a book
like this come into existence in a long time.  The fact is, this review
is a bit behind because once I got it and read it, I needed to digest
what I had read.  Then I left the book alone for a few weeks, although
it was always in the recesses of my mind.  Once I felt I was ready, I
tackled it again and it was like a second culinary delight for my eyes
and mind.

The book was created, drawn, and colored by the amazingly talented Nei Ruffino.
I’ve been a huge fan of Nei’s since I “disc...

Harbinger Wars #1 (of 4)
– the FIRST ISSUE of Valiant’s first family crossover! Arriving in
stores on April 3rd, Harbinger Wars #1 is the can’t-miss first chapter
of the event that will pit Bloodshot and Harbinger against a new
generation of superhuman – and each other.

“Clayton Crain is a phenomenal talent and we’re
extraordinarily happy to have him joining Valiant for Harbinger Wars
#1,” said Valiant Executive Editor Warren Simons.  “He will be handling a
pivotal sequence introducing Generation Zero, the strike force
controlled by Project Rising Spirit that inadvertently sets the
Harbinger Wars in motion.”
For decades, Toyo Harada’s Harbinger Foundation and
the government’s own Project Rising Spirit have been waging a secret
war over the rarest resource known to man – the...

Kickstarter of the Week: MockTales: The Nexus Earth Presents

Hello everyone! This is Greg Scott Bailey. MockTales will be getting its “kickstart” with our short story book; MockTales: Nexus Earth Presents #1.

Cover Line Art

What we’re looking to fund here is payment for the artists involved as well as the initial print run for the 2013 convention season. That’s it! And that is why we’re only asking for $2500 for this first-round project.

I want to bring everyone into the Nexus Earth Universe of MockTales by starting out with four stories of random characters and places in this new world for issue #1. This book will be mostly black and white/grey-tone with color being added only if production time allows. Then, every three months, I will be releasing another issue with even more characters and stories...

The Geeks Come Out At Night

it comes to throwing an excitingly educational, fun-filled, geeky
night, there are quite a few cities on the list. One of the most notable
is Tempe, AZ.  From the technologically-based companies, to the
innovative work done at the Arizona State University campus, it’s not
hard to figure out why Tempe would host one of the most geek-loving
parties just outside Tempe City Hall. Geeks Night Out (part of Geek Week
in Tempe) allows Artists (such as Big Chris Art, Alfred Trujillo, and Jeff Pina) cosplayers (AZ TARDIS, Arizona Ghostbusters), as well as clothing and merchandise (Geeksville, AZ, Evil Controllers)
to roll out along with science demonstrations, and geeky wooden cutouts
for photo opportunities: it was a dream for anyone who loved science,
technology, and art and longed to ...
