I’m loving these old Lobo: Infanticide comics, by Keith Giffen and Alan Grant.
It’s fun to see Giffen exploring the style he’d eventually come to use in his creator-owned series, Trencher, over at Image. Including the little hand-drawn page numbers, and super-dense backgrounds.
Sexcastle is an exciting beat ‘em up comic about personal redemption in the style of 80s action movies.
Hey, do you like comics?
Do you like 80s action movies?
Do you like things that are bad-ass and hilarious and awesome all at once?
Sure you do.
My Kickstarter went live today. My name is Kyle Starks and I want to give you something amazing.
In an all new update of Wizard Killer, we assess the damage.
For the most part comic books provide an escape. But the really good ones merely spotlight the harshness of reality. Instead of leading us on, telling us everything’s gonna be all right, these comics tell us the truth about ourselves. That we’re hopeless beings looking for meaning in this unfair world, and we’ll probably never find it.

Man, fuck this pretentious garbage.
I’ve just listed this original Rocket Raccoon illustration over on Ebay.
They’re picky about how you list items for charity over there, so it’s not mentioned in the listing, but I’ll be donating the total price of this piece directly to Bill Mantlo’s ongoing care.
It’s an original pen-and-ink illustration with grayscale coloring on white 8.5”x11” cardstock. You can see and bid on the piece here, and let me know if you have any questions - thanks!
