Nick and Brock have reviewed children’s comics before for this comic book podcast but few and far between are those from which adults will derive just as much joy as younger readers. Ghostopolis has charm, but does it fit into that category? A dying boy visiting the afterlife sounds like a depressing story from Image, but this the first book they’ve reviewed that is published by Scholastic. They publish comics? Nick and Brock squeeze in a webcomic as often as they can and for this week, Brock found roomZERO on Tapastic. This horror comic takes advantage of some of the... View Article

It has been a long time coming but Duplicity is finally complete and I’ve spent the past several days formatting the book for print and digital sales. Today, I capped off the work with a submission to Amazon, who promptly flipped my submission back to me with an approved status in just three hours. You have no idea both how stressful this is to me and how bloody happy I am to have something “in the can”, though I always found that terminology slightly unnerving… Something an airplane heroin smuggler might say about the location of their illicit goods.
