NEW VIDEO- "HOT DAMN" by Venomous2000 & Trilian

Yeah, you should already know this song Hot Damn, because I should have already dropped my review of Venomous2000 & Trilian's dope ass collabo album Sounds of the Great Ones.  But I didn't.  So you don't.  Blaming me is not gonna fix anything, so let's just dive into the new video, and we can all agree that I helped by showing it to you...

Oeming is DESTROYING the art on CAVE CARSON!


DC's handed the keys to some lesser characters to Gerard Way for his Young Animal label of books, and he is making some damn good comics.  My favorite is the incredible Cave Carson Has a Cybernetic Eye with incredible cartoon art by the mighty Mike Oeming (Powers, Mice Templar, Hammer of the Gods).

The Ladies of DC go HARD in BOMBSHELLS

I have absolutely no idea what's going on in with this comic BOMBSHELLS, othern than the fact that DC has Laura Braga and Richard Ortiz churning out some serious art on this book...

IN STORES NOW- Odyssey of the Amazons #3 by Kevin Grevioux, Don Ho and Ryan Benjamin

Mascot for the Obamacare repeal appears on Late Night with Stephen Colbert

It warms my heart anytime I see teevee shows are employing artists to draw stuff to go with their programming.  Here we are introduced to SuckIt, the Don't Care Bear -new Mascot for the Republican's Obamacare repeal- in Colbert's monologue...

#nowPlaying RNDM BEATS ALL STARS

MegaRan has earned his spot as a nerdcore mogul the hard way, so I always check for his new drops.  He just dropped this mixtape RNDM BEATS ALL STARS on bandcamp today, and I'm only a few minutes into this 51 minute mix, but I'm diggin' it so I figure I ought'a share...

PREVIEW- Fight of the Century

 I ran across this science-fiction mixed martial arts comic Fight of the Century on Facebook over the weekend, and was blown away by this incredible unlettered five-page preview they dropped yesterday...

A few words about Run The Jewels, and that Machiavelli shit

"Jewel runner, bitch! Make the name stick. Not for sale, but I'm taking payments..."

Dem Atlas barely appears in his new video. SWEET!

Soulful rhymesayer Dem Atlas barely appears in this video for his melancholy alcoholic-rap joint In the Mud, which is one of the things I like about it...

Check out this press release  and preview art I got from that dude Anthony Ruttgaizer for the release of Aristocrats Comics' new all-ages comic Heroes of Homeroom C.

This episode of #KickstartTHIS has something for everybody!

Peep the new MADVILLAIN track and figure, AVALANCHE!

You swear you stay fresh, but you ain't even know about that new MADVILLAIN figure did you? The one that comes with the 7" vinyl release of MF DOOM and MADLIB'S single AVALANCHE? Oh, you did? I guess I was the only one who didn't know...

I'll add words later.  For now:

Somebody tell me: Is THE PROWLER as DOPE as it looks?

 So I vaguely remember seeing this cover to The Prowler #1 in stores and thinking the art was nice-looking... but I was only mildly tempted to look at it, let alone buy the thing.  Fast-forward today. After spotting "story so far" page from the preview to issue 2 below, which lays out the premise of the series... I am FIENDING to read this shit!

Peep this dope live-action/animated hip hop video STRANGE TECHNOLOGY by L'orange + Lif

Surrounded on all sides as I am these days by people who want to evoke the spirit of Seduction of the Innocent for their own purposes (whether it's black intellectual analysis of Luke Cage, or feminist hatred of Frank Cho), I generally take the position that objectionable funny book characters are not gonna kill you.  Whether you agree or disagree, you need to peep this video for Strange Technology by L'orange and Mr. Lif (f/Akrobatik & Gonjasufi).  Just because...

#DownloadThis - SOUL OF THE CITY II by Shyne On Me

Right when I'm thinking social media has nothing to offer me, I got sucked in by the cover art to SOUL Of The CITY II on Twitter. This album by Shyne on Me, a D.C. area rhymer I never heard of before, may have single-handedly saved the internets from the blazing fires of my indifference...
