Quote Of The Week
"It looked like shit. The preview pages I saw, at least? Seemed all shitty-looking. And people would take that the wrong way if someone tweeted that. Because the artist doesn't draw like shit -- the drawings are fine. It's just I've seen that dude on other things, and he draws like fun shit. But there, like, they took a guy who draws fun shit and put him on a scowly-beat-'em-up thing." -- Abhay Khosla


this year's comics images are from Fawcett
