Matt Dembicki's minicomics collection in the Library of Congress

I was chatting with the serials librarians (electronically) today after dropping off some comics and minicomics for their collection (curbside), and Matt Dembicki (former ComicsDC writer and our logo artist) came up. He donated his minicomics collection to the Library of Congress a few years back and this search will let you find the 355 issues that he passed along, as the "Matt Dembicki Mini-Comics Collection" nestles in the main comic book collection. The "Small Press Expo Collection" has 3250...

Zoo Parrots Removed From Public View After Swearing At Guests And Laughing About It

Lincolnshire Wildlife Park | Screenshot from Instagram They did nothing wrong!! Parrots are incredibly intelligent birds capable of some truly amazing things, like problem solving and complex communication, and they’re also agents of chaos. They appear in the news more often than most animals because they get up to stuff that, to put it mildly, isn’t very typical. Say, for example, developing an online shopping addiction or getting arrested as an accomplice in a major drug bust. Y’know, ...

How To Carve A Pumpkin You Can Have Sex With

‘Tis the season! Pumpkin carving is as time-honored a fall tradition as hot apple cider and turning leaves. But if there’s one feature most carved pumpkins severely lack, it’s a hole you can fuck. Usually they’ve got like a ghost face on ’em … or a witch face on ’em … and, yeah, they’re fun to look at but they’re almost impossible to put your dick in. Spend a crisp autumnal night nutting into a pumpkin by following these simple steps: Original image for Funny Or Die b...

The Man Who Laughs! (1928)

32 Days of Halloween XIIIMovie Night #2 Now we come to a film that you know its legacy even if you’ve never seen it. Conrad Veidt (Hands of Orlac), is the star and his look in this film would go on to influence a character you might have heard of: The Joker. (In case that image above wasn’t a dead giveaway.) In fact, DC has pretty recently introduced an evil version of Batman called The Batman Who Laughs, a call back to this. And yes, playing opposite Veidt is Mary Philbin from the...

Tekashi 6ix9ine Rushed to the Hospital After Overdosing on Caffeine & Diet Pills

Tekashi 6ix9ine was reportedly hospitalized after suffering from an “overdose” of diet pills and caffeine. According to The Shade Room, the rainbow-haired rapper was rushed to a Florida hospital two days ago after he took two Hydroxycut pills instead of the recommended one per day, which “increased his heart rate and caused him to sweat excessively.” Tekashi said he then drank a McDonald’s coffee, and the caffeine made his overdose even worse.

‘The Orange Years’ Trailer: Nickelodeon Creators and Stars Dig into the Kids Cable Channel’s History

During the 1990s, you were either a Disney Channel kid or a Nickelodeon kid. While Disney Channel may have had the roster of multi-talented stars who would become big names in film, TV and music, Nickelodeon is where risks were being taken and kids were mesmerized and obsessed with the more edgy line-up of programming that didn’t feel like it was pandering to them just because they were young. Soon you’ll be able to find out how it all happened in the new documentary The Orange Years, and the f...

‘The Gentlemen’: Guy Ritchie is Turning His Gangster Movie into a TV Series for Miramax TV

Remember when Guy Ritchie made his long-awaited return to the gangster flick with The Gentlemen earlier this year? Yes, that was this year, back in January 2020. And in the decade that passed in the 9 months since The Gentlemen came out, it has earned enough of a following for Miramax TV to commission a TV series adaptation, written and directed by Ritchie himself. It curiously brings the project full circle, as The Gentlemen started off as a TV series pitch before it became a feature. Deadl...
