Happy Monday, my POMEs! Welcome back to Afternoon Snack: your weekly assortment of links and articles to munch on as you move along through your day.


If you, like most of our editorial POMEs, didn’t get a chance to drop by ECCC this weekend, here is some Excellent Cosplay to make you feel like you were there.


The Oscar Best Picture nominees, according to our old pal Wikihow:




Kieron Gillen is editing an anthology to benefit survivors of the Grenfell Tower fire who have PTSD. Alan Moore and Melinda Gebbie are contributing to it, and submissions of open til June 30!!


A beautiful piece on Muslim conservationists using Islamic environmental ethics to help protect octopi and other marine wildlife in Zanzibar.



AndrĂ©a Gilroy has a cute new YouTube series called Comics Crash Course that everyone should watch because she’s great. You can watch the first episode right here:



Not much to see here,  just Final Fantasy artist Yoshitaka Amano’s gorgeous Shape of Water fanart. (Just kidding, it’s a lot!! to see!!! bless us all!!!! what a dream collab.)



From POME HQ in Austin, Texas, we’re holding down the fort and hoping the gloomy weather breaks and that we can enjoy a sunshine-y week. We’re wishing the same for you! See y’all next week for a brand new Afternoon Snack to tide you over another week.


Pomegranate Magazine

POMEmag is the internet’s premier pastel, macabre feminist dork publication. Or at least, a very pastel, macabre feminist dork publication that is leaning into that identity pretty hard.
