Profile of Hernandez Bros at Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"Love and Rockets" is the last comic I bought regularly and its creators, Gilbert and Jaime Hernandez, the only comic book artists I have ever interviewed. That was 32 years ago, when the series was 8 years old, back when their publisher, Fantagraphics, was still based in Agoura Hills, between Woodland Hills, where Gilbert lived, and Oxnard, where Jaime lived and where the brothers grew up. I fell in love with their characters, with their line — Jaime’s art, especially, which even according to his brother, is what first turned heads. My irregular support in recent decades has not impacted their output — “Love and Rockets” is more of a going concern than ever — or kept the brothers from becoming even more legendary than they already were. In honor of the series’ 40th anniversary, Fantagraphics is publishing a hardbound boxed set reproducing its first 50 issues; it’s expensive and worth it.

DC Universe now has added service to get new comics in digital, fasterVerge MSN

Will this work out? Or does it matter, its just DC moving the digital release date closer to the goal: day one delivery on titles?

DC’s adding a new Ultra tier to its Universe Infinite comic book subscription service that lets you digitally read comics just one month after they hit store shelves (via Gizmodo). The new tier launches on Monday at an introductory price of $99 / year, but this price only lasts until November 28th and DC doesn't specify how much it will cost after that."

Alan Moore: comics and fascism and superheroes are terribleUproxx

The accusation that superhero comics are fascism in 4-color has been around for as long as comic book superheroes have been around. It is a bread-and-butter tenet of some political spheres.

Alan Moore is one of the great geniuses of comic books, having done his best to make them mature and brainy and deep. He’s also one of the medium’s loudest critics. He’s no fan of the movies made from his comics, even refusing a credit on films like Zack Snyder’s Watchmen. And he’s no fan of the superhero wing of comics, which he’s frequently deconstructed and satirized in his own work. In the past, he’s slammed caped crusaders as “tremendously embarrassing and not a little worrying.” Now he’s going even further."

Heritage Auctions raising funds to turn the late writer Harlan Ellison's house into a "memorial library"

Story at Down The Tubes

Harlan Ellison [May 27, 1934 – June 28, 2018] was a highly influential novelist, scriptwriter and general pop culture influencer that a lot of modern sci-fi can be traced back to.

Upon Harlan Ellison’s death in June 2018 at the age of 84, The New York Times described him as "a furiously prolific and cantankerous writer whose science fiction and fantasy stories reflected a personality so intense that they often read as if he were punching his manual typewriter keys with his fists." The tagline for the 2008 documentary about Ellison, Dreams with Sharp Teeth, described him as "Genius. Monster. Legend."
