My Condolences to Friends and Family of Batton Lash

Word is trickling out through friends who would know that Batton Lash has passed away from brain cancer. The always-dapper Lash was the author and artist of Wolff and Byrd, Counselors of the Macabre, later renamed Supernatural Law, since 1979. He stuck with it through comic strip, issues, webcomic, and waxing and waning movie interest, finally moving to Kickstarter to put out book collections. He ran Exhibit A Press with his wife Jackie Estrada, who is administrator of the Eisner [...]

Relive Medieval London’s Bloody Murders With This New Interactive Death Map

It was the priest in Dunstan Parish with the small knife, the brother in the Tower of London with the stave, the Welsh tailor in St. Mary Woolnoth with the broad-bladed knife—or so the new “London Medieval Murder Map,” an interactive database of 142 brutal 14th-century homicides, tells us. The macabre tool, which draws on city coroners’ rolls dating to between 1300 and 1340, is the brainchild of the University of Cambridge’s Manuel Eisner, an expert in the history of violence. As Eisner tells th...

She-Ra and the Princesses of Power

I am excited to see that She-Ra and the Princesses of Power has been so well-received. This relaunch of the 1980s cartoon show has a more modern sensibility, and it allows the character to stand on her own instead of being a He-Man adjunct. (I haven’t had a chance to see the show yet, but I believe it, since the revamp was created by Noelle Stevenson, whose Nimona, which did something similar to fantasy adventure stories, won an Eisner a [...]

Know Your Limits: The Law of Grandiosity

Editor’s note: This is an excerpt from Robert Greene’s new book, The Laws of Human Nature. We humans have a deep need to think highly of ourselves. If that opinion of our goodness, greatness, and brilliance diverges enough from reality, we become grandiose. We imagine our superiority. Often, a small measure of success will elevate our natural grandiosity to even more dangerous levels. Our high self-opinion has now been confirmed by events. We forget the role that luck may have played in the su...

Jeffrey Katzenberg and Meg Whitman have raised $1 billion for a new mobile video startup — and there's a whole bunch of reasons to believe it's going to be a flop

Jeffrey Katzenberg and Meg Whitman have raised $1 billion for a new mobile video startup that promises to yield a brand new form of premium, short form storytelling. The prospects for the venture, NewTV, don't seem promising. It's not clear how new this idea is. A long, torturous history of original web projects shows this concept has been attempted numerous times, and rarely succeeded. Plus, even $1 billion pales in comparison to what tech giants are spending on their original content efforts...
