Two Projects to Support

Here are a few interesting projects in the fundosphere (emphasis on “fun”.) I talked about the first on the podcast I released today and played a song by the band, but Cats Laughing – a Minneapolis based SF/fantasy supergroup – has a Kickstarter to fund their reunion show at Minicon 50. I have long loved this band and am excited to see this happen. The project is already funded and is now reaching for the stretch goals. Adam Stemple, Emma Bull, Steven Brust and Lojo Russo. There is a lot of good music and fiction produced by this crowd, and you can be part of this. This Kickstarter closes January 18th.

The currently running Humble Bundle for books is a set of digital graphic novels from Image Comics. This is truly a treasure trove. The highest level is $18, and if you pay that it will unlock the East of West special, the first 18 issues of Saga and the first 48 of The Walking Dead. That is a complete steal. Even just Saga by itself is a good deal. Considering you get hundreds of other issues in addition is phenomenal.

This includes the first collection of one of my current favorite series, Velvet. Also, Sex Criminals, Satellite Sam, The Manhattan Projects, The Fuse. These are all things I buy in paper at full price, I don’t think you can go wrong here.

In fact, here are series in the bundles that I have reviewed for Pull Box Picks:

Of every Humble Bundle I’ve ever seen, this might be the best value. I can attest to about half of the issues contained in here that they are well worth reading. If you support it, there is no reason to not go straight to $18. Unless, like me, you already own everything in that tier. The Humble Bundle closes January 20th.

I highly recommend both of these projects. Go, money! Fly and be free!

Evil Genius Chronicles Podcast for April 10, 2013 – “Forgetting History”

Here is the direct MP3 download for the Evil Genius Chronicles podcast, April 10, 2013. This episode is again one recorded in my car. I talk about crashing my laptop, failing to organize a conference, my poor sleeping habits, recording podcasts I never publish. In a now resolved controversy, I discuss the then big controversy about the digital censorship of the Saga comic book, and finish up talking a little about podcasting history and revisionism.

New Episode of Pull Box Picks

The newest episode of the show I do for Derek Coward’s The Reader Feed has been posted. It is a Pull Box Picks in which I discuss the series Saga from Image Comics. Summary: I love it! It’s one of my favorites currently being published.

I’ve gone back and forth on whether I should add those episodes to this feed. Generally I support keeping feeds as granular as possible. If need be, people can subscribe to more than one. However, this particular episode and this particular comic I really like, so I’m just adding it. I’m still undecided on any future episodes, but this one will be in the feed.
