Afternoon Snack

We are halfway through April and spring is fully and completely here! Whether today brings you April showers or bluebonnets and other wildflowers, we’re glad you’re here for a well-deserved Afternoon Snack.


We’d like to kick things off with some Monday afternoon crone energy to get you through this week:


Yesterday marks Commander Shepard’s birthday — and CC‘s, as she loves to remind anyone who will listen, every single year. To celebrate, the POME crones whipped up the Omega 4 Replay Collected Edition (volume 1) — a pay-what-you-want zine that compiles all of POME’s Mass Effect 1 replay fan comics. All proceeds from this zine directly support POMEmag’s talented coven of writers and artists. Give both CC and Commander Shepard the gift of paying even more talented folks to make weird stuff for the internet by picking up the collected Omega 4 Replay comic here!

All hail himbat, unofficial Comrade Himbo mascot bc all cats are comrades.

Speaking of Comrade Himbo, we nominate Vax Daddy Huge Ma for Comrade Himbo of the Year. But also:

His post-vaccination fantasy is the same as mine: “Go to a random house party, crack open a beer, and stand around talking to my two friends the entire night.”

Vaccine disseminating hunks: they’re just like us!


Very interesting cryptid reporting for the yeti fans amongst us.


An opportunity to dunk on steampunk and that creep Joss Whedon? Noted Steampunk and Joss Whedon Despiser CC appreciates this thoughtful birthday gift from the pop culture zeitgeist.

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.

Finding My Monsters

My fascination began with the 1979 film Alien. I was six when my parents let me watch it with them one night. The idea of an alien monster, called the Xenomorph in the movie, lurking in the vents of a spaceship was terrifying and invigorating. I wanted to know the Xenomorph’s motives. Why was the crew scared of it? Rewatching the movie as a pre-teen filled in the blanks. The crew feared the unknown, and this alien monster, for me, represented the misunderstood.
