The problem with diversity.

"It’s always funny to see people hiding behind an anonymous tag daring people to face them. Take off your sheet, step into the light, and we can have a conversation. Otherwise, you can do like the other lot."

Tom Brevoort, 2014


My name is Daniel Tonner.

I’m 27 years old. I live in Bremen,…

Christ, what an asshole.

Then again, the amount of shit that’s come into the world as a result of German hubris is, well, historic. (The destruction of Europe’s economy is just the latest.)

Basil Wolverton’s Powerhouse Pepper, from the Fantagraphics collection published in 1994.

Originally drawn in the 1940’s, this stuff is super bizarre, and it’s hard to imagine who he was writing it for.  It’s almost as hard to imagine a company publishing it, but you have to assume the editors simply didn’t care, since it was for kids.  Think of the images of golden age comics and try to fit this in with them.  It doesn’t.  

Great stuff.

Forgotten masterpiece

Crime in Gotham, he says “is not actually caused by evil, it’s caused by systemic disenfranchisement and poverty and lack of access to job opportunities and education. And yet Batman continues on not funding police departments or schools or building low income housing, but tearing up the infrastructure of the city he claims to love while fighting villains who are only powerful because that city is already so blighted and dysfunctional.”

To call this the best funnies news today is an unimaginably low understatement.
