At the Beginning: Farmhand #1

We LOVED Chew here and I’ve been waiting and waiting for Rob or John to announce a new project. Well, Rob’s Farmhand is out so I decided to take a look at that first issue. Here are the images used in the video:

Bitch Planet is the comic we need Right Now

Starting in college and continuing in the following decades I’ve slowly been learning that women have a completely different experience of the world. I thought I understood the struggle women had compared to men; at the highest level, being expected to be successful as both

Wytches: Parenting Fears Made Manifest

I read Wytches back in September before Baltimore Comic-Con because I wanted to be able to talk to Scott Snyder about how it was a personal meditation on what it means to be a parent. Snyder being as popular as he is, I was unable

Alex + Ada

I was sure I knew how this was going to go. I’ve seen plenty of anime with this same plot. Usually the guy gets an android because either he’s too shy around girls or because he’s a loser (at least by cultural standards). However, instead
