Donald Duck #52 - Carl Barks art, mis-attributed Barks cover

Walt Disney's Donald Duck v1 #52, 1957 - Donald Duck, Uncle Scrooge and company pursue a long abandoned gold mine. They soon encounter pack rats and need all their smarts to outwit them. Carl Barks even makes the lonely desert locale interesting. The most texture and linework occurs in the mine scenes (see interior page below), offering a contrast to the sparse outdoors. This story was later [Author: Unknown]

News Post: Coin Toss

Tycho: The third panel originally had substantial percentage of Witcher references - nearly one hundred percent, by volume - but the final version of the strip leans more heavily into synthetic cathinones.  But then the title stayed?  I don’t know.  I’m leaving it.  At some point in your “ouvre” you have to start studding your work with incongruities just to give historians something to do.  Let the studious inheritors of this archive say that this is when Early Onset Coot Disease finally began ...

Phantasy Star Online 2: Episode Oracle Episode 18 Impression

On this episode, Ash witnesses and gets partly involved in the forgotten incident. Meanwhile, the Arks struggle to defend. Whoa, the forgotten incident is just as dark like the present because of the certain characters' struggles. Also, it was interesting to see Ash still partly interferes and does some fighting. Other than that, I'm really curious if past Xion was aware of future Ash's presence, but she purposely didn't do anything about it. Now what's going to be the next plot? I definitely c...

These Sketches From RuPaul’s SNL Debut Left Me In Tears

Please, I could watch RuPaul verbally destroy children’s books all day This past weekend marked two historical events: the first time a foreign language film has won the Academy Award for Best Picture (get on down with your bad self, Bong Joon-ho!) and the Saturday Night Live hosting debut of the Queen of Drag herself, RuPaul Charles. As any fan of RuPaul could’ve predicted, he was a force to be reckoned with and killed in every sketch he appeared in. Most folks at least know him as a rec...

Erotic Animation Turns Hatsune Miku Into a Sludgy Slime Girl

Potentially produced as a result of boredom with more traditional fetishes, this bewildering animation transforms Vocaloid diva Hatsune Miku into what seems to be an aqueous slime girl, allowing observers to see right through her and possibly igniting new preferences amongst avid ero-aficionados. The strange animation also implements what seems to be “core” penetration:

‘Birds of Prey’ Gets a New Title in Theaters After Underperforming at the Box Office

Birds of Prey may have topped the box office last weekend, but it opened far lower than box office analysts predicted. Even the expectations from Warner Bros. Pictures were nearly $13 million higher than what the movie actually earned. And it sounds like the studio may have figured out what part of the problem is: the title. After being marketed as simply Birds of Prey, and occasionally by the comically longer title Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), the new t...

‘CSI’ Revival Event Series Being Investigated by CBS

If you’re craving more CSI in your life, CBS is thinking about making you very happy. The network is mulling over a CSI revival event series that would bring back some original stars of the procedural drama.
