Artist Spotlight: Rik Ty

Once upon a time, in a land far, far, away, a young man girded his loins and decided to embark on a career in comics.

Artist Spotlight: Jeff Carroll

Do you remember when you were a kid and the teacher gave everyone a few sheets of paper and you, if you were lucky, were able to fold one into something resembling an airplane?

While it’s true that the industry isn’t selling the same number of issues per month that it did in its heyday of the late 80’s / early 90’s, it’s also true that the landscape has…

It’s Your Universe – Treat It With Respect

One of the fun things about writing about comic books, while writing them too, is that you get the chance to read them. Lots of them. Way too freaking many of them sometimes. There is one constant among them all, however, and I’d like to address that today. Simply put each one has a universe created for its characters to…

Twerking For Jesus

     Amanda Johnson stood at the edge of the grave and smiled. She wasn’t happy that her husband of fifty-four years was gone. Far from it. She had loved him more with each passing day until he’d finally shrugged off this mortal coil. He’d been a good husband, father, grandfather, and lover. Especially the lover part. No, she smiled at…

Bill McCormick February 13, 2018 – Last night The World News Center’s official girlfriend and I went to see the Chicago premier of Black Panther. I’ll tell you all about that in a moment.
