$8 gets you six of SScotty 2 Naughty's Valentines cards themed for Toronto's crack-smoking, drunk-driving, thug-beatdown-commissioning lout of a mayor, Rob Ford. They sport slogans like "I must have been in one of my drunken stupors when I fell for you" and "I refuse to resign my love for you." Genius! And romantic.
A few months ago, I released a short, autobiographical comic called Something Terrible, about my life growing up with fictional heroes, and how imaginary heroes had somehow managed to rescue me here in the real world. In the story, there’s a page I call “You’ll Be Safe Here,” an image that has bounced around a good bit on the internet on its own. This one page took me thirteen days to draw, working eight to fourteen hours per day...
I realized that I had forgotten a critical sentence in the story so a paragraph in PERSONAL JOURNAL ENTRY#156 now reads as follows;
The man approaching our table smelled and looked like he had come from a swamp. The first thing I noticed was that he was carrying a serrated length of metal that only bore a passing resemblance to a sword. My eyes traced a straight line from the stranger’s weapon arm to his face. It was a face made cadaverous by necrosis and eyes made insane by abandonment.

That key was so white that t almost didn’t seem real. “Didn’t you hear...” he spoke revealing teeth that were as discolored and bent as his weapon, “...the clawing at the Black Door?”
It was only one short month ago that Andrew Frey, a 37-year-old Oregon man high on methamphetamine, combatted 15 police officers—and fought through a Tasering—to defend his right to masturbate publicly inside a Salem road house. Today, you can recreate Frey’s righteous stand with the browser game Oregon Masturbation Massacre. It’s pretty simple. All you do is masturbate, fight, and when you’re out of energy, take meth. You know, a normal Saturday night...
This HBO original series starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson was already riviting viewing in the standard noir police proceedural way... but then in episode 2 they dropped references to the King In Yellow and Carcosa!
Then I sank into the depths, and I heard the King in Yellow whispering to my soul: 'It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God!"'
Robert W. Chambers, In the Court Of the Dragon
Well I certainly didn't expect this! This coupled with the sense of cosmic nihilism that permates every scene should make this 'Must See TV' for fans of Lovecraftian Mythos styled fiction and the classic show MillemiuM.
