Peep this 24 page (p)review of BAAKO, the new all-ages fantasy graphic novel by brilliant young cartoonist Joshua Covey!

Read the first issue of Larime Taylor's A VOICE IN THE DARK: GET YOUR GUN here! Issue two is in stores now.

 I never read Larime Taylor's serial killer soap opera A Voice in the Dark before today, but this cover to A Voice in the Dark: Get Your Gun #1 caught my eye, and the sales pitch said it was a good jumping on point for new readers. So I jumped on. Did I mention the whole first issue was posted online by the publisher, Top Cow? Yeah... free comics...

Okay, all my A-alikes have seen and digested the low-budget Kevin Smith classic Chasing Amy so we know where this video for Chasing Amy aka In Your Heart is going, but knowing the mighty Von Pea has seen it too gives one of my favorite under-appreciated Brooklyn spitters bonus points with me, should he ever need to cash them in. Anyways, watch the new video...

"Time to take action. Now not later. Some cops be on some terrorist shit like Al Queda..." @Headkrack

The EXCELLENT adventures of Marvel's mighty Muslim-American superheroine continue!

I can't tell you how pleased I was to look at the latest preview of Ms. Marvel and see that G. Willow Wilson and Adrian Alphona are still working on the book.
