TheTaoOfIgor

Hi John, Let me just say that I am a fan of your work and have been for over a decade. Which makes it a little frustrating that you haven’t finished the story from the comics after issue 36. I mean the last issue has content for the old Kobolds Ate My Baby which just […]

See You on the Other Side, Egon

Egon

See You On the Other Side, Egon… Like many of my pals, I was gutted to learn of  the passing of Harold Ramis. The New York Times possibly put it best, calling him an “Alchemist of Comedy.” I was rushing, yesterday, and cartoons were taking far longer than they should. But I really wanted to […]

Munchkin Cosplay GOES UP A LEVEL!

Screen Shot 2014-02-13 at 10.22.40 AM

Molar Vortex

BadTooth

Molar Vortex Hi there. I had a tooth pulled today. I’m recovering fine, thank you very much. It was a weird but not painful experience. I was comfortably numbed, but it’s an odd thing, being held down, in a dentist’s chair, as part of you is extracted by force. Kind of like G-rated torture porn. […]
