Patreon Preview Week : “Gates Of Plasma” By Carlos Gonzalez


Ryan C.'s Four Color Apocalypse

I did this last year, so I’m doing it again : in an effort to gin up interest in my Patreon site, I’m posting a selection of reviews that ran on there originally with the brazen goal being to get you, dear reader, to part with a buck (or more, if you wish) per month so that yours truly can find some level of intellectual justification for the sheer amount of time I put into cranking out so much comics criticism.

Music Video of the Day: Star Wars Medley by Lindsey Stirling and Peter Hollens (2013, dir by ????)


Apparently, May 4th is Star Wars Day and …. oh wait. May the Fourth …. may the force ….. okay, I get it now. Anyway, since today is Star Wars Day, it just made sense to pick this as our music video of the day!

Enjoy!
