In between regular postings of This EMPIRE are “yesteryear” strips.  These segments will hopefully provide some interesting vignettes into Niall and Jamal’s past.

The comic above is from the archives one I had drew when I working out bits for the still in development The Mysterious Cellar Dweller: Collected Edition. I really enjoy going to films. One can view it as a solitary experience, sharing with family, friends and even strangers. In putting this for publication I hope to use my burgeoning critical eye to talk about the art of film posters. Unfortunately it was spectacular lost I kept downloading various films posters I enjoyed. The film posters mention below in no way at all my attempt at best of list, really how I could have a favorite? I haven’t watch enough films 🙂

Free Comic Book Day was great but I found out at the last #SketchBomb-NC I forgot about Record Store Day April 20 2013.  There was a brief pause at our table for a collective face palm. Yeah I forgot these things do happen… er… by the way I heard some amazing things about the sale at one of my local record stores Schoolkids Records.

This weekend

Toronto Comic Arts Festival

Are you coming? Or are you crying because you can’t come? There’s no in-between answer unless you live very far from Toronto, or hate art.
