The first 3 pages of The Crow And The Queen, my new comic, is up on Patreon! 🎉 patreon.com/posts/16241662

It will be posted exclusively for $3+ patrons until it's finished - after that, it will be available on Gumroad (and prob in print!)

Some info about TCatQ:
- It's a fairytale about a crow, a queen and a curse
- 49 pages long
- will be updated whenever I finish a batch of pages. Once a week looks LIKELY but not guaranteed

I'm pretty sure I'm going to keep learning the lesson that dreading doing the thing is harder than just doing the damn thing itself every single day until I die.

The new Marvel projects today (Phoenix, R&G) plus the continued excellence of Astonishing and Hawkeye takes some of the sting out of all of the recent cancellations. I'm going to miss many of those titles, but it is encouraging to see great new material released in their wake.

Enjoy your titles today!

Rogue & Gambit #1 (W: Kelly Thompson, A: Pere Perez C: Frank D'Armata, L: Joe Caramanga, Cov: Kris Anka) - this is my first time reading work by Pere Perez, and it is *gorgeous*. Thompson's affection for the titular characters shines through, and she has a good feel for voices of the supporting cast as well. Excited to see where this one goes!

Phoenix Resurrection #2 (W: Matthew Rosenberg, P: Carlos Pacheco, I: Rafael Fonteriz C: Rachelle Rosenberg, L: Travis Lanham) - WOW. The stakes feel real and very high, there's tons of easter eggs, the art just pops, the cast is huge - this feels like an old-time X-Men capital-E event.

The Infinite Loop: Nothing But The Truth #3 (W: Pierrick Colinet, Elsa Charretier A: Danielle Di Niculo, C: Sarah Stern, L: Ed Dukeshire, Cov: Elsa Charretier) - this universe continues to make very thoughtful observations about society and frames them in a compelling near-future setting. Great sci-fi, and beautiful to look at to boot. It's gonna be a treat to re-read both volumes once this series concludes.

Hawkeye # 7 (W: Kelly Thompson, A: Leonardo Romero, C: Jordie Bellaire, L: Joe Sabino, Cov: Julian Totino Todesco) - this creative team continues to fire on all cylinders. Kate's visit with her mother damn near broke my heart, I had to stop reading for a few minutes. Romero continues to draw the best panel sequences in the biz. It is nearly an actual crime that this series isn't continuing past March.

Astonishing X-Men #7 (W: Charles Souke, A&C: Phil Noto, L: Clayton Cowles, Cov: Mike Deodato & Frank Martin) - this story continues to unfold at a breakneck pace. The recently returned Xavier seems to be playing things very fast and loose, and I'm *still* waiting for the other shoe to drop with him. The issue concludes with another surprise return! This is currently the best ongoing X-team book imo.

Animosity Evolution #3 (W: Marguerite Bennett, A: Eric Gapstur, C: Rob Schwager, L: Marshall DIllon) - Animosity continues to entertain and surprise as it's world unfolds and evolves. This issue had a criminal investigation, an attempted hit on a witness, and a black market speakeasy that were all unlike any scenes like this I've seen or read before.

All right, it's the first of 2018 and I have thoughts and observations about the books I read! Let's do this!

hello tooters hope your tootsday is going well

Things seem to be more or less stable now that I've got my frequent sites updated. Forgot a few instances where I needed to share a password, but by and large this is working well. 2FA setup everywhere that offers it as well.

Starting the new year right...

...

...by tediously replacing all my old passwords with new strong randomly generated passwords via Dashlane. This is probably long overdue, but will be good for my peace of mind once I think I've updated all of my frequently visited sites.
