Aesthetics are your problem and mine. Nobody else’s. The fact of the matter is, I want everything we do — that I do personally, that our office does — to be beautiful. I don’t give a damn whether the client understands that that’s worth anything, or that the client thinks that it’s worth anything, or whether it is worth anything. It’s worth it to me. It’s the way I want to live my life. I want to make beautiful things, even if nobody cares.

The Flash is wasting a bunch of time because he cares more about branding than about saving lives.

Same.

He’s running so fast that his keys keep falling out of his pocket, and he’s gotta go back and get them, that’s all.

You guys have all been very supportive of my Benton garbage, but calamityjonsaveus and his wife may have just knocked my socks off forever.  I got this cigar box in the mail today with some new itinerant Bentonites inside.  I’m DYIN’.

Also, I love how Jon just taped the top hat on the Chima head.  Makin’ It Happen  Also: using toggles as fezes!  I’m dyin’!

This made me smile when I really needed it.  Thanks, Jon & Kate!

I am a good dude to be friends with if you like well-thought out presents in the mail, I will say that for myself.

According to superstition, empty egg-shells should always be broken up — lest witches make boats thereof.

my question is…. how would that be anything other than adorable?

We all start drawing this … now!

I am super-proud to announce the publication of my first book,The League of Regrettable Superheroes from Quirk Books, debuting June 2, 2015!
You may know that I’ve been running a blog since the late 1990s called Gone&Forgotten, which covers the lowest, the worst, the most ignored and the most ridiculous comic books of the last eighty years. You may also know that I was on This American Life once to talk about the superheroes who never made it big. 
Well, the nice folks at Quirk thought there’d be a pretty good book in that, so earlier this year I completed a collection of entries on 100 of the most unfortunate, amazing and unbelievable near-misses in the history of superhero comics! “From Atoman to Zippo,” as they say in the promo material, and 98 more, including such weirdos and what-the-hecks as The Red Bee, Nature Boy, Brother Voodoo, Mother Hubbard, Detective Eye and many more!The book debuts next year, but the promotional push starts now, so check out the link and, you know, bear with me because I’m going to be talking about this for like the next eight months nonstop!
( If you’d like, you can also pre-order the book on Amazon! Dang! )

I kinda still can’t believe someone hired me to do this. Anyway, my new book, look!

In case you didn’t know what red-hot sex looks like, it looks like Gene Day’s original black-and-white work for the second issue of Doctor Who’s 1981 American comic book debut.
Unf. Hella unf, y’all.
