Time: 03/14/2010 09:00 PM EDT
Episode Notes: As any artist knows, sacrifices often have to be made to create your work, and get it out there. Join our discussion as we share what those sacrifices are, and how we strike a balance between our work and our daily lives.

The last episode of Javier Hernandez’s podcast JAVILAND was awesome. Featuring webcomicker, sketchcard enthusiast and prolific comics blogger, Tyler James!

Public Domain Superhero Day: THE HOOD Sketchcard!

Here he is- everybody’s OTHER favorite curtain-masked PDSHero – THE HOOD!

13 & Jinx, Kirby Style!Click Here For a HERO-SIZED VERSION!

Truly one of the least popular, most obscure and oddly named Public Domain Superhero is 13.

What a treat! 1987 now seems so long ago, but the words of Northhampton’s neolithic Scriptor-Magister do not lose relevancy with age- quite the opposite, I find Moore’s musings exactly the thing I need to hear as a potential creator and a current consumer of comics, magic, radical ideas and participant in life. Thank god for the Youtubes. Continue reading “Alan Moore: Monsters, Maniacs and Moore”
