Gentle reminder-if you see teenagers out and about this Halloween, be kind. Don’t give them crap about being too old to go trick-or-treating. We shouldn’t be shaming kids for holding onto their childhood. 💛
Unwieldy huge #NCBD this week, with the disruptions from early travel due to the hurricane, but one of the books I’m most stoked to read is @pattonoswalt@BlumJordan’s Minor Threats - issue 1 was a blast, can’t wait to see where the story goes!
A girls' school in Iran brought a member of the IRGC-run Basij paramilitary to speak to students. The girls welcomed the speaker by taking off their headscarves & chanting "get lost, Basiji".
Teenage girls have been at the forefront of protests for days.
There's an auction happening soon. This one is special. It's from Harlan Ellison's collection and will fund keeping Harlan and Susan Ellison's house as a living museum and library. So many treasures.
Mike Fanone had previously called D.J. Rodriguez — the MAGA fanatic who drove a stun gun into his neck on Jan. 6 — a moron.
He doubles down in his new book, saying he “can’t believe I almost died at the hands of one of the dumbest fucking people on the planet.”
This series shines in its strong character depictions. @pattonoswalt, @BlumJordan, Scott Hepburn, and Ian Herring successfully turn an arrogant villain into a near tragic figure who wants to but simply cannot stop being who he is.
#NCBD mini review. No spoilers.
Thomas Ligotti: "I’ve had surgery a number of times, and coming back into consciousness subsequent to anesthesia has made me realize just how great it is to lie in a black oblivion. I genuinely hope I die on an operating table."
Someone pointed out to me that in episode 100 of My Little Pony (“Slice of Life”) there are three background ponies that look like The Dude, Walter & Donnie. Later in the episode only The Dude & Walter reappear, but Walter is now holding a red coffee can.
