17.Apr.2013 A thought on hate

I don’t normally blog about social issues, but I posted this on my tumblr yesterday and, as the last graf suggests, spreading love around is a thing worth doing.

Long time EoP readers may recall that every year before San Diego Comic-Con I make a new Twitter Avatar for my good friend Josh Wigler, now the head of the MTV Movies blog. This year is no exception!

10.May.2011 Making suggestions: King Conan

Recently, Dark Horse social media guru Spencer Newlin-Cushing asked me to write up a staff pick for the newly-launched Dark Horse Digital Store. I was more than happy to oblige and wrote up this recommendation for King Conan: The Scarlet Citadel… “Grab a cup, boy. If it’s a tale you want, then, by Crom, a […]
