The blog is dead.

I’m not saying this blog, but the concept is on its way out.*

Just as Facebook will go to its long goodnight as its users go to other sites, some leaving because they just want to make pithy comments passing other peoples’ content around, share photos of their lunch, or turn the idea of a newsletter inside-out, there are better sites for all these things than one’s own blog, and each of them comes with a strength the independent blog does not: a built-in community. Unless you’re one of my five friends, or came across this site looking for an (increasingly outdated) way to customize the RSS output of a Drupal feed, then odds are you aren’t even reading this.

I’m the man in the high castle, the fool on the hill, who built a fortress around himself, and wondered why no one ever visited.

But don’t worry… as per my habit, I’m behind the times — I haven’t even listened to ArtPop yet — so I figure timtoon.com still has a few years left in it.

*Todd would say this sentiment itself is outmoded.

How about never?

Rumors persist about the Apple TV set, this time putting the release date at sometime in 2015.

How about half-past never?

Variant cover titillation

Comics

Aug. 4, 2012 | Tweet | | Leave a Comment

We got a great artist to design a variant cover with a little more cheesecake. She’s still coloring it, but I couldn’t help tease a little piece of it before we post the finished result….

Don’t forget, we’ve got only a week left with just under $900 to go, so share our Kickstarter on Facebook, Twitter, or your favorite comics forum, and help this book become a reality!

Misunderstading Comics interview on Bleeding Cool

Our Kickstarter is still going on!

Bleeding Cool’s Kickstarter Correspondent, Shawn Demumbrum has led three Kickstarter campaigns to launch comic books, two successfully funded and one that wasn’t. Each week he will point out some of the unique Kickstarter projects that wouldn’t normally be published by the big comic book companies, but deserve your attention.

Since we are talking about Misunderstanding Comics, which comic do you think is misunderstood or gets an unjustified bad rap? Writer? Artist?

Jack Chick. It’s fashionable to slag on him because he’s pushing some really horrible offensive ideas in his comics, but his actual cartooning is just brilliant. He draws the most evocative, iconic expressions — just great bulging eyeballs and flapping mouths and sweat drops flinging all over the place. Every panel is so chock full of detail it’s like a MAD magazine chicken fat, with great big stubbly faced pot-bellied demons lurking everywhere in the background. I know so many people who insist that the art is bad because they don’t like the message, but he’s really a talented, meticulous craftsman.

Plenty more baffling answers and curveball questions where that came from, so read the rest of our interview Kickstart From The Heart – Misunderstanding Comics!

Misunderstanding Comics on Kickstarter!

Pledge to Misunderstanding Comics on Kickstarter!

Scott McCloud’s Understanding Comics was a landmark book in the comics world for establishing the potential of visual arts to convey beauty, drama, and transcendent meaning.

But comic book readers didn’t want beauty – they wanted buff gladiators with laser guns the size of a filing cabinet, sex kittens with impossible figures drawn by unskilled artists, an army of hacks hoping to sell a million issues of pre-bagged, individually- numbered holofoil special editions to drooling fanboys before anyone noticed they were bankrupting their own medium. Join us as we turn a jaundiced eye toward all that is wrong with the “invisible art”.

You won’t understand comics until you misunderstand them!

Misunderstanding Comics is co-written and illustrated by Mike Rosen, the writer/illustrator behind the satirical adaptation of The Malleus Maleficarum: the Medieval Guide to Hunting Witches.

And if you prefer to get your info via PDF, here’s our convenient and portable press kit.
