Before we begin this week's festivities, a brief moment of gratitude. The other day this here notice popped up on me phone: I realize that on the scale of, y'know, the rest of the internet, that's literally nothing, and indeed a decent percentage of it is almost certainly me doing format-checks on posts. Nonetheless, that… Continue reading New Comics Haul Week Of 8.3.22

This is… Continue reading New Comics Haul Week Of 6.15.22
Come see what comics I snagged this week! Picture of my kitten unrelated, but what are you gonna do, NOT click on the kitten? Like a MONSTER?
