* Ryder Windham wrote in to the Comic Books Are Burning In Hell podcast about my podcast with them about Eros. I had totally forgotten Ryder used his real name and that was indeed an important thing in terms of the culture around that company. I hadn't heard that Black Kiss was an inspiration for the imprint. I'm jealous of Windham's friendship with Frank Thorne.
* I enjoyed this list of horror comics at Paste although I was surprised that Josh Simmons didn't make the list along with his alt-comics peers Ben Catmull and Al Columbia. Simmons is the best cartoonist working that genre today.
* not comics: there are enough news sources reporting this preposterous-sounding story as true that I'll risk linking to one, as it's an interesting story if true or if the product of mass psychosis. Sometimes I wonder about all of this junk-genre TV being poured into the top of people's heads, although when I do that I don't really project this kind of dramatic result.
