One of the best things about the Star Wars comics is that they've chosen some of the best possible artists to work on these. Cassaday, Deodato, Larroca... they have that realistic, cinematic quality to their art which makes it a natural fit for these ...more

Part of me didn't want to admit reading this. Silly, really. Started reading this last spring, for personal reasons. Turned out to be a lot more to it than just a sexual manual. There's a lot of general life stuff--i.e. the encourage of creative purs ...more

The Lando story that Marvel did recently. Basically a heist gone wrong story. Basically just a bit of fleshing out of the character and his adventures before he ended up running Cloud City. Solid writing and story, Good art from Alex Maleev and Paul ...more

Philip K. Dick
“The basic tool for the manipulation of reality is the manipulation of words. If you can control the meaning of words, you can control the people who must use them.”
Philip K. Dick

Alan Moore
“Stood in firelight, sweltering. Bloodstain on chest like map of violent new continent. Felt cleansed. Felt dark planet turn under my feet and knew what cats know that makes them scream like babies in night.

Looked at sky through smoke heavy with human fat and God was not there. The cold, suffocating dark goes on forever and we are alone. Live our lives, lacking anything better to do. Devise reason later. Born from oblivion; bear children, hell-bound as ourselves, go into oblivion. There is nothing else.

Existence is random. Has no pattern save what we imagine after staring at it for too long. No meaning save what we choose to impose. This rudderless world is not shaped by vague metaphysical forces. It is not God who kills the children. Not fate that butchers them or destiny that feeds them to the dogs. It’s us. Only us. Streets stank of fire. The void breathed hard on my heart, turning its illusions to ice, shattering them. Was reborn then, free to scrawl own design on this morally blank world.

Was Rorschach.

Does that answer your Questions, Doctor?”
Alan Moore, Watchmen

Philip K. Dick
“Science fiction writers, I am sorry to say, really do not know anything. We can't talk about science, because our knowledge of it is limited and unofficial, and usually our fiction is dreadful.”
Philip K. Dick

Philip K. Dick
“It is sometimes an appropriate response to reality to go insane.”
Philip K. Dick, VALIS

Nutcracker Variant (Science Fiction & Fantasy)

Description: A short story I wrote based off of the story of "the Nutcracker" set in modern times. Really just a rough draft, but figured people might get a laugh out of it.
