Two Towns

Sorcerer's Skull - Mon, 07/30/2018 - 11:00
These settlements go in this world, but certainly could be placed elsewhere.

Tuskinth: A village whose primary industry is nonnig husbandry. it specializes in the so-called healing breed of furry nonnig, whose purring and warmth is said to have a calming influence on the nerves which aids in healing, and of course, nonnig of any breed are highly nutritious and flavorful. The nonnig yards are composed of hill-mounds surrounded by small moats (the nonnigs avoid water). The nonnig breeders can be recognized by the mail gauntlets they wear on their left hands, to protect themselves from the sting of the mound wyrms that form a symbiotic relationship with the nonnigs and protect them from predation with the warrens. Some nonnig breeders may keep small mounds of scintilla-sniffers on the side, but the practical folk of Tuskinth look down upon treasure-seekers.

Harfo and Sons is the most prosperous of the breeders, though many in Tuskinth would opine that only the old man, Grenz Harfo has any particular head for nonnig-breeding. His eldest son, Halx, is a handsome dullard, and his youngest. Festeu, is a idler and wastrel. Of note, he does own a rare (outside of the Daor Obdurate) telesthetic hound. The poor beast is quite mad, made so by an over-sensitivity to human anxieties resulting from over-breeding. Its shrew-like snout is has a-quiver and dripping, and it's whip-like tail sways nervously.

Horbizond: Was the name of an ancient city, and also the current modest village that squats in a meager portion of it. The people of Horbizond dress in the decaying finery of the ancients and appoint their over-sized but crumbling homes in an equally ostentatious fashion. They live in holy dread of the Prismatic Man, an angular, crystalline visitant, who materializes at random intervals to isolated folk of the town. The actions of the Prismatic Man are various and strange. He has at times pointed with a glassy finger to hidden treasures. Other times, he has emitted a chiming that the hear perceived as some spiritual wisdom. Then there are the occasions when he has seemed to produce rays of color from his palms that struck an individual dead. If there is any rationale to whom the Prismatic Man favors and whom he destroys, the folk of Horbizond have yet to discern it. In fact, they believe it would be blasphemous to do so. The Hwaopt Library is willing to pay for detailed observations of the Prismatic Man, whose nature and purpose they are eager to discover.

JEZ(RE): SDCC 2018–just a fangirl of myself

First Comics News - Thu, 07/26/2018 - 22:03

It’s true.

I am just a fangirl of myself.

I don’t really like anything.

I mean, some things I love—everything else, I some what tolerate; or, eliminate from my life—including humans—and sometimes I tolerate then eliminate.

Not sure what part of I’M A FUCKING SOCIOPATH is confusing.


Maybe people think I’m kidding because I’m nice.

I’m a good person—but, it’s simply a choice.

I chose to be.

I choose not to lie, cheat or steal—doesn’t mean I don’t want the entire fucking world to burn on occasion.

You all seriously piss me the fuck off.


It’s fine.

AND—you’re welcome for your lives : )

I am a super villain after all.

Don’t act like it’s a surprise.

Described once as possessing the unbridled rage of a thousand blazing suns.

Jedi abstain from emotion.

Sith indulge.

I feel everything.

Which—makes me the most powerful Sith in existence.



I did not get enough out of con.

Mostly, it was my fault—mostly.

Talked into working Wednesday night, all day Friday, Saturday until 2PM and Sunday.







Can’t be too mad with a view like this, though:

: )


Made it to last 20 mins of preview night for a little recon.

A lot of booths are in the same location every year so makes it a bit easier as a regular.

First Comics News hosts a panel every year at SDCC on HOW TO GET NEWS COVERAGE for indie books—Thurs 10:30AM Room 8—every year.



Fuck you ReedPop for not approving me press at NYCC this year.

Like; do you know who the fuck I am?

Seriously—I’m awesome.



I got me own badge : )

More on that later…


Panel was fabulous!

And—always amazing to see the lovely Holly G:

She’s so fucking hot.

And—wonderful; and sweet.

Oh! This dude who saw our (my) panel at WonderCon 2016 followed me on twitter after and came to our (my) panel here.

Then; these other two (2) dudes followed me out of the room about their project…

I chatted a few until my bladder couldn’t take it anymore and I had to excuse myself.

Then! I got stopped coming out of the bathroom by three (3) more attendees.

They all loved my input.

Duh! I’m awesome…

Only eight (8) of us this year, so it was easier for everyone to talk.

Points I stress EVERY YEAR:

1) Read your shit. Have other people read your shit. Make sure your shit doesn’t have typos. Make sure your shit makes sense.

2) Everyone you could possibly want to talk with at con IS AT CON—GO TALK TO THEM! You never know who you’ll meet or who they may know until you chat ’em up. Not saying immediately shove your project down their throats, but asking them about what they are doing will generally open up dialog and give them a chance to ask you about yours.

3) Make sure your business cards reflect you. Don’t assume having a facebook/twitter icon at the bottom tells me how to find you online.

Also—tits and ass.


But, seriously, fans eat that shit up—quite repulsive, actually—no body cares for an amazing story anymore.



Everything is regurgitated.

I’m starting to wonder if there is any originality remaining in the world.

Like; has humanity reached the point where every plot and every idea ever possible has already been told and all that is left is retakes?!?!?!


As you all know, I don’t read anything but indies—I just told you—Spiderman vs. dinosaurs… Avengers vs. dinosaurs…

I haven’t ready anything DC after the whole “Death of the Family” bullshit.

I mean, seriously…

Crossovers with every title just to boost sales of those titles without any real benefit to over all narrative—and, then an ending where everyone one walks away from batman.

I’m okay with no one dying for the “death of the family” but, Batman spends the entire arc desperately searching for these mother fuckers in order to save them, risking his own life; for all to simply walk away from him over the possibility that the joker may or may not have been in the bat cave.

I also understand the concept was Batman hadn’t been forthright with information on several occasions but in the New 52, no other occurrence had been expressed to that point so it made zero logical sense.

THEN! Robin is on a mission with Batman in the very next issue, kicking off requiem, and dies.




Good luck finding comic books…


This shit is getting ridiculous.


Seriously, I’m over all the pretty shinies…

Well—almost—this shit was pretty cool:

Plus—cosplayers always on fleek (learned that from an eleven year old XD:



Emerald City in Seattle is still the truest large comic book convention I’ve ever been to with over 70% of booths with books on tables—but, I haven’t been in two (2) years, so, curious if ReedPop has fucked that yet or not.

I’m actually a fan of ReedPop, don’t get me wrong—maybe I’m a bit salty—and, I like C2E2’s artist alley.

Although, that show is a bit underwhelming with massive isles and preposterous amounts of open space.

Maybe I’ll just never be happy… sigh…

I do feel SDCC did a better job organizing this year—but, maybe that’s because a significant amount of Exhibitors dropped out this year from what I heard…

The convention center is just not large enough to house the beast of what is SDCC and they’re quickly getting out numbered as con attendance rises across the country—though, apparently numbers are being vastly exaggerated… cough cough Phoenix cough cough…

BTWs—if you weren’t aware—the Jacob Javits, home to NYCC, is 1.8 million square feet; or, 3 times the size of San Diego Convention Center.

And—NYCC has already topped SDCC in attendance with MUCH more room to grow.

Mr. Mayor proposed an increase to hotel tax up to 15% calling for an emergency vote last October—which looks like it didn’t happen—is now set for a vote come November to expand the convention center, repair infrastructure, and “battle the homeless problem.”

First of all, the homeless problem is only a thing because people do not understand socioeconomics—BUILD SOME MORE LUXURY CONDOS IN DOWNTOWN, that’ll help. Ha! This practice is is spreading like a virus across major US cities and it’s fucking gross.

Instead of trying to attract more people with money, who really don’t exist, why don’t you actually try to house the people already in your fucking cities!

Expanding the convention center is almost impossible as the land required is owned by the port and a lot of shady shit has to go down for them to pull this off.

And—infrastructure is shit, because builders are doing a shit job and contractors are robbing the city blind.

Last year, I started attending city council meetings and learned SDGE owes the city tens of thousands in overages; council approved a 72 million dollar minor upgrade on a water treatment pump; and, the county was sitting on a 1.3 billion dollar tax surplus—except, 33k people currently owe $86M in property taxes.

AND! They just let Horton plaza, THE ONLY MAJOR SHOPPING STRUCTURE IN DOWN TOWN LITERALLY IN THE CENTER OF THE FUCKING CITY, be sold in order to build—you guessed it—luxury, fucking, condos.


It’s not the building’s fault it failed as a shopping center—who in their right mind would want to rent a space there and invest in upgrades, if someone could come in the next month offering more money and have it ripped out from under them?!?!

Oh! AND! There was a huge meeting regarding affordable housing last year…

Their solution?

Provide a tax incentive for developers who provide 10% of their units as affordable.

What the fuck are they doing?!?!?


Further, Comic-con International is a non profit.

The board members receive a messily salary—on paper—but,  the city gives them free rent to keep them in SD.

I assure you them bitches ain’t living in any place less than 4k a month—I could be wrong—but, I know several of them love to dine daily at The Westin; no way they’re living with the commoners in a 2k a month 400sqft apartment—just a hunch.

Several local news sources are calling attention to where the fuck the money generated from con is going.

Like—they bought several warehouses in National City under a newly created charity with an attorney set as the CEO.

I seriously hope they don’t plan to move con further out of the fucking city.


They need to buy Horton Plaza—which is larger in square footage than the convention center.

Donate it to the city.

And be the only con in the country with a physical HQ.

It would house a year long SD merch store, offices, and studio for their TV channel; exterior space for a free to the public artist alley; utilize the four surrounding hotels as panel space—including The Grant, which is the original home of SDCC; cementing itself in the true center of San Diego as a staple of the community—which could then be used as additional convention space during the year; cons, full scale art installations; etc…

But—what the fuck do I know?



Comic books…

I did an interview:

That was fun.

Here’s so more pretty shinies:

I have to go to work now.

This should be enough until I feel like adding more.

(July 24, 2018 – Abu Dhabi, UAE) – Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum and Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, yesterday inaugurated Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi, the world’s first-ever Warner Bros. branded indoor theme park developed by Miral, Abu Dhabi’s creator of destinations, in partnership with Warner Bros. Entertainment, with an investment of $1 billion.

Their Highnesses attended the official inauguration ceremony, which took place in the Warner Bros. Plaza at Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi. The ceremony included the first screening of the Warner Bros. Cinema Spectacular, a captivating show that brings Warner Bros.’ unparalleled film library to life. Guests were also treated to a series of festive celebrations incorporating the park’s beloved characters.

Sheikh Zayed bin Ahmed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Sheikh Saif and Sheikh Ahmed bin Hamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan then took the stage alongside some of the park’s iconic DC and Warner Bros. Animation characters to press a button marking the official opening of the highly anticipated theme park, which is expected to draw in thousands of guests including residents and tourists of all ages.

Following the opening ceremony His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Rashid and His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed toured the park, which officially opens to the public on the 25th of July. The opening of the Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi marks the latest addition to Yas Island’s offering of world-class tourism and entertainment attractions, and serves to strengthen the island’s position as a leading leisure and entertainment destination in Abu Dhabi, further enhancing UAE’s distinguished position on the world map.

During the tour, their Highnesses were briefed on the many elements which help bring the park’s immersive environments to life across its six lands. From the meticulously curated musical arrangements to the faithfully created landscapes, each land is uniquely designed to truly immerse guests in the places they’ve seen in movies, comic books and on TV.

Their Highnesses also learned of the different stages of development which the park underwent as well as its adherence to the internationally recognized best practices and rigorous health and safety standards to ensure the wellbeing of its guests. During the tour, their Highnesses also visited the park’s wide array of facilities and state-of-the-art attractions.

“It is with great pride that we open Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi on Yas Island today. This is a milestone moment for us as we continue to cement Abu Dhabi’s positioning as one of the world’s leading family and tourism destinations. I am confident that the addition of this theme park to our already rich portfolio will further enhance Yas Island’s offering,” said H.E. Mohamed Khalifa Al Mubarak, Chairman of Miral.

“We’re delighted that our partnership with Warner Bros. has resulted in us delivering our promise of creating an attraction that will amaze and entertain both the young, and the young at heart,” added H.E. Al Mubarak.

Filled to the brim with endless family fun and adventures, the park transports guests to six expertly designed lands, including DC’s Metropolis and Gotham City, as well as Cartoon Junction, Bedrock, Dynamite Gulch and Warner Bros. Plaza. Home to a total of 29 exhilarating rides, interactive family-friendly attractions and unique live entertainment shows, the park will offer an incredible range of themed experiences. Guests will also enjoy authentically themed dining experiences, from grab-and-go eateries to full-service sit-down restaurants and cafes, as well as custom designed shops featuring bespoke Warner Bros. merchandise inspired by fan-favorite characters, some of which has been developed exclusively for the park.

“Warner Bros. has an almost-100-year legacy of producing and distributing high-quality entertainment to global audiences, and this world-class attraction continues that tradition in grand style,” said Kevin Tsujihara, Chairman and CEO, Warner Bros. “Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi literally brings our characters to life and provides fans a truly unique immersive entertainment experience. We couldn’t have better partners than our colleagues at Miral, and we look forward to continuing our longstanding relationship,” he continued.

The world-class theme park brings to life fan-favorite DC Super Heroes like Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman, alongside beloved Warner Bros. Animation characters from Looney Tones and Hanna-Barbera like Tom and Jerry, Scooby-Doo and The Flintstones, using state-of-the-art technology to create truly immersive environments and unforgettable experiences.

The excitement begins in Warner Bros. Plaza, where guests can meander the streets of the art deco themed portal to the various lands of Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi. Guests can enjoy the gleaming urban landscape of Metropolis, where they can revel in the heroic optimism of the Justice League – whose members include Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and The Flash. They can then make their way to the dark alleys of Gotham City where devious masterminds such as The Joker, and Harley Quinn wreak havoc only to be thwarted by Batman. In contrast, bright blue skies and fluffy white clouds will surround the guests in Cartoon Junction where childhood favorite characters come to life. Guests will then leave the colorful houses behind for the lofty dunes of Dynamite Gulch packed full of animated antics and mad mishaps. And finally, guests can rewind all the way to the modern Stone Age in Bedrock with the lovable cave-families – The Flintstones and The Rubbles.

Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi is the latest addition to Yas Island’s immersive theme parks including Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi and the upcoming attraction, CLYMB. These are complemented by: Yas Marina Circuit – one of the most technologically-advanced Formula 1 circuits in the world; Yas Marina – a vibrant venue offering dining, fitness and leisure facilities; Yas Mall – the largest shopping mall in Abu Dhabi with 400 retail stores; Yas Beach; and, Yas Links Abu Dhabi – the 46th golf course in the world, as well as seven sophisticated hotels ranging from 3 to 5 stars.

Weird Revisited: In Arcadia

Sorcerer's Skull - Thu, 07/26/2018 - 11:00
Here's another of my refinements/spins on the D&D Outer Planes. This one from 2012 was expressly for the world of Weird Adventures but might be usable elsewhere.

Astral travelers sometimes finding themselves passing through a veil of mists and arriving in the apotheosis of sylvan settings, the realm of Arcadia. In this plane dwell forgotten woodland spirits and pastoral gods and creatures out of myth.

Arcadia is hyper-real; it seems more vibrant and alive than the material plane. Smells and tastes seem directly drawn from the most vivid examples in memory; everything is in technicolor and imbued with a faint glow. The world itself is alive--with potentially communicative spirits in everything. Night and day and shifts of weather are sentimental things, sensitive to the meaning of events or the mood of powerful beings.

Arcadia borders other related realms. The Land of Faerie emerges from it (though this realm also has tunnels linking it to the Lower Planes). There is also the Land of Beasts, where the iconic animal lords dwell, ruled over by King Lion.

Despite it’s ties to age-old fables, the Land of Beasts keeps up with the expectations of modern visitors. Adventures from the City have found there home mirrored there in a city of anthropomorphic animals who frequent nightclubs and drive cars. The Cat Lord can often be found here, in the swankest of night-spots.

Magical practitioners view Arcadia and its neighboring realms as places to salvage materials and items out of myth and legend, and to parley with powers that--though perhaps consciously forgotten--still retain great mythic resonance in Man's unconscious.  As with all extraplanar dealings, caution is warranted: These primal beings have agendas of their own.

One of the great joys for regular readers of our long-running Men of Mystery Golden Age costumed-hero reprint series is seeing in-print examples of little-known champions of that bygone era. November’s MOM #110, “Mondo Obscuro”, plays up the rarities in spades.

This issue of MOM does feature a full half-dozen “stars”- major characters that had long-running series and/or their own titles; including cover feature MINUTE MAN in a never-previously-reprinted story drawn by Phil Bard. In addition, there will be top-flight adventures starring LADY LUCK (with art by Klaus Nordling), FLINT BAKER, The GREEN LAMA (from his Prize Comics run), The BLACK OWL and BLACKHAWK.

Beyond that, things get particularly interesting.

We’ll present an episode of Frank Thomas’ wonderful The OWL, another of the seldom-seen insect-hero from the late-1940’s “proto-Charlton ” publisher Frank R. Communale Pubs- The YELLOWJACKET; one story each of three seldom-seen heroes from the Novelty Press line, the freeze-powered SUB-ZERO; The TARGET (and his Targeteers), and the Mickey Spillane creation (drawn by the great Paul Gustavson), The TWISTER. We’ve previously reprinted one or two other stories of these characters in previous issues, but no more than that.

The centerpiece of this issue is the six, count ’em SIX weird, wild and wooly, never-before-seen (since their original printings in the 1940’s) heroes presented for the edification of discerning Men of Mystery readers.

Get ready for full-story reprints of MAJOR VICTORY, DYNAMIC BOY (Both from Major Victory Comics), The RED KNIGHT (out of Red Dragon Comics), MIRROR MAN, The TRIPLE TERROR (both from Tip Top Comics) and RADIOR (from the extremely rare Key Ring Comics!!!

We feel confident in assuring all readers (and potential readers) that you’ve never seen any of these stories ( let alone the characters starring in them) in print anywhere unless you happen to OWN any of the high-priced, moldering collectible copies of their original GA appearances.

If you are fascinated by the comic books of the First Heroic era, vintage panelology in general, or obscure heroes, you can’t miss this issue!

Men of Mystery #110, 140 pages of crisp, clean black & white full-story reprints of actual vintage comic book heroes; standard comic book size and saddle-stitched inside a full-color cover, for $29.95.

Coming in November from AC Comics.

Comic Book Cover Artist Jenny Frison joins the Comic Con Africa 2018 band of artists

First Comics News - Tue, 07/24/2018 - 23:22

24 July 2018, Reed Exhibitions Africa, ReedPOP and VS Gaming today announced that Jenny Frison – best known for her Wonder Woman cover art – will be in attendance at Comic Con Africa 2018.


While Frison is best known for her cover art for Wonder Woman, she has also created covers for X-Men Red, Black Panther, Loki, Vampirella, Red Sonja, Clean Room, Revival, I Vampire, Angel, Spike, True Blood, Xena and more.


Her interest in comic books began with a Wonder Woman storybook she enjoyed as a young girl. After school she attended Northern Illinois University where she majored in illustration before attending The Kubert School of Art. During her schooling, she decided she wanted to focus on cover art and quit before her third year to teach herself. She met writer Tim Seeley, who asked her to draw a cover for Hack/Slash after he looked at her website. The two became friends, and they now share a work space at Four Star Studios in Chicago, Illinois.


In 2013 and 2015 she was nominated for “Best Cover Artist” in the Harvey Awards.


Frison joins an ensemble of comic book artists that are set to wow attendees at the first edition of Comic Con Africa.


The Comic Con Africa 2018 experience will also include the Artist Alley – a space for independent artists who are producing original artwork in the form of comics, prints, posters and self-published novels, and books.


Comic Con Africa will be held from 14 – 16 September 2018 at the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit & International Convention Centre. Comic Con Africa is a multi-genre entertainment and comic convention that features comic books, games, arts, movies, pop culture elements and so much more.


More information about autograph sessions as well as ticket pricing will be announced at a later stage.

Ara finds Kasper a d’jinn and Tongo his monster. Tongo now this is how to illustrate a strong powerful monster.
Torinthal controls not just one d’jinn but four. They all have different and beautifully designed outfits. The one d’jinn serves him willingly. The d’jinn are powerful so having four to do your bidding making Torinthal a man of very great power.
Ara has an airship. It is beautifully designed. Ara and her two new companions Kasper and Tongo are getting along and these three do make a powerful band.

Comments: Ara is on a quest to find her Queen and mother. Ara is a half human/half d’jinn being.
Handish and his men are shaking down a village. It is a village Ara has come to and been welcomed in. Ara is a great warrior and shown here fighting a few men she moves through them easily. They work for Lazo and he has a army and a monster.
Ara’s purple skin makes her stand out. It does add a lot to her look. She is a gorgeous warrior.
As Ara attacks Lazo’s army she moves swiftly and sticks with deadly precision. The blood does flow.
As Ara looks for the monster the build up as she moves through the cave you can feel something is there. The suspense builds. The monster called The Hammer is a big hulking creature. A cute surprise pops up to. Ara is going to have her hands full with them both.
Bonus Story! featuring Aspen Mascots “The Early Bird Gets the-Yeah. We Went There!” Writer Vince Hernandez, pencil & inks Joie Foster, colors Justice and letterer Micah Myers. Womier the worm and Griff the griffin start a new friendship. They are kind of like Pinky and the Brain.
