Pages from the Top 10: The Forty-Niners. Written by Alan Moore, drawn by me, colors by Art Lyon. Art is on Tumblr at artlyon.
The Forty-Niners is a prequel to the present day set comics series Top 10, also written by Moore. My layout artist from Top 10 Zander Cannon didn’t work on this one, but he is the model for both young Jet Lad/Steve Traynor and for the precinct’s captain Doctor Omega.

WAALLLL, I’ll spare you the details, but I am in pretty dire financial straits and I need to open up commissions again. I hate to do this because, um, I’m not even done with the last round of commissions (they’re on the plate for this week, though), but I’ve got to raise OHHHHHH about four thousand dollars in the next two months or so. Neat, huh?
To start off, I’m opening up ten slots for Half-Pint Hero commissions only (those are the little cutesy guys up above) starting at $25, incl shipping. These are black-and-white illos (sometimes with gray marker highlights) on 8.5x11 cardstock, they can be whatever character you’d like, or maybe a little drawing of you, or your friends, or your imaginary friends, or maybe of your enemies and you can use the drawings to taunt those guys. Your choice!
Single figure is $25, $5 for every additional figure, please drop me a line at email@example.com to reserve a spot and let me know what you’d like. Paypal is happily accepted. All commissions will be finished and in the mail by September 15, 2014.

Preview of “The Iron Giant” toy by Mondo.
The Iron Giant Collectible Figure
The 16” tall figure will have over 30 points of articulation, light features, and other fun surprises! Accompanying The Iron Giant will be a Hogarth figure, scraps of metal for him to munch on and a Seafood sign that has a removable “S” to put on his chest. He will also include an interchangeable head and gun attachment, giving a choice of displaying the figure as the regular version, or the “War” version! The figure was designed from the actual CG files used in the film, for ultimate accuracy.

Maybe people wouldn’t be so annoyed with Milo Manara’s “Spider-Woman” #1 variant cover if every series got overtly sexy variant covers—not just the ones with female leads.
This is a world I want to live in.
Just imagine the all-beefcake artist roster: P. Craig Russell, J. Bone, Phil Jimenez, Adam Warren, Kevin Wada…Source: uncannybrettwhite

"Depression is humiliating. It turns intelligent, kind people into zombies who can’t wash a dish or change their socks. It affects the ability to think clearly, to feel anything, to ascribe value to your children, your lifelong passions, your relative good fortune. It scoops out your normal healthy ability to cope with bad days and bad news, and replaces it with an unrecognizable sludge that finds no pleasure, no delight, no point in anything outside of bed. You alienate your friends because you can’t comport yourself socially, you risk your job because you can’t concentrate, you live in moderate squalor because you have no energy to stand up, let alone take out the garbage. You become pathetic and you know it. And you have no capacity to stop the downward plunge. You have no perspective, no emotional reserves, no faith that it will get better. So you feel guilty and ashamed of your inability to deal with life like a regular human, which exacerbates the depression and the isolation.
Depression is humiliating.
If you’ve never been depressed, thank your lucky stars and back off the folks who take a pill so they can make eye contact with the grocery store cashier. No one on earth would choose the nightmare of depression over an averagely turbulent normal life.
It’s not an incapacity to cope with day to day living in the modern world. It’s an incapacity to function. At all. If you and your loved ones have been spared, every blessing to you. If depression has taken root in you or your loved ones, every blessing to you, too.
Depression is humiliating.
No one chooses it. No one deserves it. It runs in families, it ruins families. You cannot imagine what it takes to feign normalcy, to show up to work, to make a dentist appointment, to pay bills, to walk your dog, to return library books on time, to keep enough toilet paper on hand, when you are exerting most of your capacity on trying not to kill yourself. Depression is real. Just because you’ve never had it doesn’t make it imaginary. Compassion is also real. And a depressed person may cling desperately to it until they are out of the woods and they may remember your compassion for the rest of their lives as a force greater than their depression. Have a heart. Judge not lest ye be judged."

"You’re only given one little spark of madness. You mustn’t lose it."
Rest In Peace to the man that has made us laugh for many, many years while he has been hiding the sadness and depression. May he be remembered for the happy times and laughter that he brought all of us. I honour him the only way I know how.
And remember if depression is bringing you down. ASK FOR HELP! It may not feel like help is there but it is, ask, reach out to someone you trust or someone anonymous, its never worth suicide don’t rob the world of someone to love.
Yes to all of this.
