Orc N' Rule. January 7, 2010 Posted by Mookie
Thanks to all of you who sent me many, many kind e-mails regarding my decision not to kill Luna, as well as your opinions regarding my "main character body count" philosophy. It took me a while to read through all of them and, while I may not reply to your kind words, rest assured that they were all very much appreciated.

Also, any resemblance Jacob may be bearing to Nimmel in the last panel of today's comic is completely coincidental. More on why his hair is only one color and his arm is back to normal (as well as reattached) tomorrow.

The Seer's Catalog ought to be up and running by tomorrow.

A couple of cool comic books came out yesterday that I really enjoyed, and I want to make special mention of them.

I've really been enjoying Red Robin since Tim Drake took up the mantle. I was, at first, skeptical that I'd enjoy it since he looked to be going down the path of the "dark, brooding hero who blurs the lines of good and evil and makes the choices the other heroes can't make" (be sure to say all of that in a growly voice for maximum effect). The latest issue that came out resolved all that in a satisfactory and pretty bad-ass way. Thumbs up.

Orc Stain is really, really interesting. I'm a sucker for stories about orcs whether they're good or evil (though preferably good). The world and orcs that James Stokoe created is bizarre, brutal, savage and weird as hell. It reminds me of Rock 'N Rule with tusks... and a weird obsession with dicks. I mean, really. They're everywhere. I'm curious to see where he takes me in the strange and wonderfully awful world of Orc Stain.

That's all from me for now.
Rock on.
