If you want to see Page One of Ra-Boka, clicketh thee here. Remember: if you want pages more regularly, the key is our Patreon – we’re less than $50 away from two pages per month.
For a while, people have been asking “when are you going to release a collected edition of Al’Rashad like you said you wanted to do, we want to buy that.” Yes! We did ask about that! In answer, Davinder and I have set up a Patreon page for the sequel to Al’Rashad, entitled Ra-Boka: Kingdom […]
Warning: some spoilers for the new Captain America film follow. Oh, and the Civil War comics, but those are like a decade old now so who cares. Ezra Klein has a column up at Vox wherein he explains that Captain America is in the wrong in Captain America: Civil War and Iron Man is the […]
On Trump Seeing a lot of “the sky is falling” sentiment last night and this morning from people who are genuinely shocked that a blatantly racist and misogynistic buffoon like Donald Trump could become the de facto Republican nominee, and who have equated that with Trump’s ability to win in the general election. I’ve also […]
The problem with any retelling of the Doctor Strange origin story – and although I am more or less tired of origin stories as “first movies” in superhero cinema, I make an exception here, because Doctor Strange’s origin story is probably the last truly compelling one in comics that hasn’t been filmed yet – is […]
FLAPJACKS: How do we stop Trump? Oh god how do we stop Trump? MGK: First off, how would “we” do anything like that? FLAPJACKS: Don’t laugh. If we don’t stop Trump, we’ll have to move to Canada! MGK: We already live in Canada. FLAPJACKS: That makes it even worse because we know what it’s like […]
Welcome to the results of the 2015 Theszies / Rec.sport.pro-wrestling Awards. This year we had 753 voters participating – less than last year, but that was largely because last year we had a large flood of voters from With Spandex and this year WS felt that they didn’t want to campaign overly for the Awards […]
(NOTE: This post was originally a lengthy philosophical consideration commemorating my fortieth birthday (which was on Tuesday). However, I deleted that post yesterday because really, who needs another bit of pseudo-midlife-crisis wankery from a forty-year-old white guy? The answer is “nobody,” and if you are feeling the need to write such a piece and cannot […]
Final tally: you guys got most of questions five, six and seven, and identified the categories, and were nosing around question one pretty closely. There were correct guesses in every other question but nobody got close as to those categories (the fact that nobody figured out the Star Wars question surprised me, to be honest). […]
I was kindly sent a complimentary copy of Amazing Fantastic Incredible, Stan Lee’s comicbook autobiography (with the “assistance” of Peter David and Colleen Doran) (and yes, reading this, one discovers that Lee follows Jim Steranko’s spelling of “comicbook,” so for the sake of uniformity I will use it here). To be sure, it has some […]
This is the Call for Votes for the 2015 Theszie Awards. You can vote here. The Theszie Awards are the oldest fan awards in pro wrestling history, going back to 1990 (when Mr. Perfect quite appropriately won Best Wrestler and Junkyard Dog v. Ric Flair at Clash XI won Worst Match). They offer a record […]
Just in time for the end of the year – and as always, coming after the actual King William’s College Quiz, which also as always is much harder than this little trifle – comes our annual holiday tradition of pandering to nerds. If you’re new to this, you might want to look at last year’s […]

While the GF and I were in Europe recently (on my first vacation in a long, long time – short version, Paris is great, Brussels is great, Amsterdam is great, western Germany is great, Luxembourg is pretty to look at but otherwise it blows), I had the opportunity to spend a day at Essen Spiel, […]
