OCTOBER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AT LAST!


This spooky season idea is just on a level we only dream of reaching. Incredible!!


October also means that the ShortBox Comics Fair is live! Take a look for the best of the best in digital comics.


If you have money to spare after a round at SBCF, you are definitely going to throw money at this Kickstarter: [Boyish²] Butch×Butch Yuri Anthology. Featuring 10 of Japan’s top yuri artists, this is one million percent the content we crave!!


If a friendly gamble on nature’s foibles is more your thing, please enjoy Fat Bear Week, where you can vote for who you think is the fattest bear, best prepared for hibernation, for no reason other than blissful vibes.


Congratulations to IATSE union members, who voted overwhelmingly to authorize a strike if their contract demands are not yet. Those demands would improve conditions for some of the lowest-paid and longest-working workers in the film and TV industries, and with around 60,000 members, could be one of the biggest strikes in recent memory in the US.


Closing out in the spirit of brotherhood and fair play, please enjoy one minute of an incredible athlete getting overwhelmed by emotion as his mentor on a legendarily underdog baseball team moves on to bigger and better things.
