Afternoon Snack

Congratulations to all our friends and faves who were a part of what we heard was maybe the best Small Press Expo ever?? Check out the incredible, much-deserving Ignatz winners, and also, if you can, donate to SPX’s fund to defend 11 cartoonists from a truly wretched defamation lawsuit.

Are you ready for the most tense primary voting season in recent memory? If not, don’t worry: Oni Press has your back with Draw Out the Vote, an amazing map of resources and deadlines by state, paired with a comic by an artist from that state. We loved Texas’s, of course. #YouBetoWork

Nancy, you done called us all out again, and we love you for it. (If you still aren’t reading the new Nancy, fix your life!!)

Friend of POME Yasmine Pirouz is running a really unique Kickstarter, hoping to promote artists by finding connections between their work. Check it out and support!

Speaking of artist connections, we loved this fascinating interview with G. Willow Wilson on her and Christian Ward’s new creator-owned sci-fi book, Invisible Kingdom.

If you thought this website would hold off on Halloween content until October, you were dead wrong! We’re already preparing and contemplating scaring the pants off everybody this year, with a shockingly realistic wool head of John the Baptist, and this utterly unbelievable Hieronymous Bosch-themed costume.


The Toronto International Film Festival is always a great time for film lovers, and we particularly enjoyed this profile of Viola Davis reflecting on her incredible career, and what she would do differently.

It was also New York Fasion Week last week, and we’re not gonna lie, this Disney villain line was probably our favorite thing to come out of it.

In need of a good cry? Here, have a story about dogs who experience empty nester syndrome when the human kids all grow up and leave their family fluffers behind.

BioWare’s Anthem might be getting romance options after all! Screaming gayly about making fictional hotties kiss maybe works sometimes, y’all!

In other game news, we’re getting a new Animal Crossing and Tom Nook has gone viral, because it’s 2018 and you never know where the spiciest memes will pop up anymore.

If you live in New York and need access to good accessories for an important occasion, the New York Public Library will hook you up. Libraries, we love you, always and forever.

Only 90s kids will get teary-eyed over this oral history of television’s most underrated accomplishment, Frasier.

Maybe you’re less of a “tossed salad and scrambled eggs” person, and more of a “cravats rule everything around me” person. If so, peep this huge list of period pieces you can watch in the absence of Downton Abbey!

Over in fandom, check out this interesting essay that reads Neville Longbottom as having a learning disability, and talks about disability solidarity in Harry Potter.

Thank you Keanu Reeves, for everything you do for us, and for always looking like the ideal Afternoon Snack.
