Now, I should’ve posted this yesterday, but I forget that I usually do my posts a day ahead. So here it is, a day late. That shouldn’t stop you from checking it out:
Some readers may know what I’m talking about. Some may not. Either way just wanted to wish Matt luck on June 7th. It’s not easy taking a fight on short notice, but if anyone can do it 200%, well, it’s Matt:
Stumbled on to the blog for this online bookstore. And now it’s bookmarked. Just a ton of great fantasy and sci-fi books:
Bit of great news on Pinkerton. Everyone’s reading it right? There will be a Pinkerton collection coming out through 3rd World Studios. 3rd World also happens to be home to some other awesome comics. Link’s below, so head over there and browse around:
