Alan Moore and Mitch Jenkins Kickstart Northampton Dream Noir

Batman Believes In Gun Control. So Should We.

(NOTE: This is Friday night’s final draft, written after the horror in Colorado, which followed the death of a friend Thursday in California. It was an emotional process, so I wanted to post it here for posterity. My streamlined Bat philosophy appears on Wired.)

Anyone who knows anything about Batman knows that his parents were gunned [...]

Alan Moore Joins the Occupy Fight

There are few things I love more than comics and social justice. One is the scoop, and another is a scoop about comics and social justice, starring one of the most insightful minds of this century and last.
