This weekend is spx and I am going to do something special to promote my tumblr webcomic, creatorscomic - to ANYONE who comes up to my booth (W46) and follows my comic on tumblr right there, I will do a FREE nightmare animal sketch! Above are a few examples including a bird, a cat, a centipede, an octopus, a sheep and a bunny. These sketch card sized drawings can be made of ANY animal you want…go ahead and challenge me.

Anyway, hope to be doing a ton of these at SPX this weekend

How can you start witing for Marvel or DC? I mean, artists can show portfolios and have previous works, but if you can't draw, how can you submit something?

The bleak male rage is problematic. Roughly 90% of violence in the world is perpetrated by men. We also start most wars.

The bleak male rage is the “black thing” war veterans with PTSD talk about. To quote Alan Moore’s “25,000 Years of Erotic Freedom,” sexually open and progressive cultures such as ancient Greece have given the West almost all of its civilizing aspects, whereas sexually repressive cultures such as late Rome have given us the Dark Ages. We live in a world where we are taught to be afraid of sexuality but we accept hate and violence as normal parts of our daily lives. We can show a head torn off in a comic without a problem but a woman’s nipple gets people upset. It’s time to change that narrative.

In order to understand what is happening I posit that the root factor of violence is often shame. The church or the government (what’s the difference, really?) tell us what we can do and can not do with our bodies, which parts we can show and which parts we can not — and unless we’re harming other people, there is never any need for that. What then does such repression do? What is the aim?

I posit that the aim is to create soldiers. All the unspent energy has to go somewhere. Sex dissolves barriers. War creates them. As long as we stay unaware of our conditioning, we might be processed by the machine.

How to get out of it?

Exploration and dissection are perhaps always the first moves. Identify the systems and then act.

A healthy dose of screwing also helps.
