Lol. Shoutout to everybody out there grinding overnight.
"James Kochalka is an adorable spazz" - marinaomi (on intsagram).
I’m adorable! I’m adorable! She said I’m adorable! (I should probably use that quote on a future book jacket.) I’m so glad is was “adorable” and not “unbearable”.
ProTip: Fungus: the Unbearable Rot of Being makes for excellent theatre when read aloud with a friend, and becomes doubly hilarious.

88 years ago today, Joe Kubert was born, and we are all, today, richer and happier for it.
Thank you, Joe.

I was a huge comic book fan. It’s weird because the era of Marvel I was into turns out to be very important in the long run, but it’s not the one that anybody romanticizes. It was right when X-Men was becoming the thing that all serious comics people were into.
My dude was the Incredible Hulk — that was my hero. I get emotional when I think about it, because the Incredible Hulk was fiercely loyal to people who treated him well. It was the one major value in his life. … He valued and treasured his friends and … anyone who mistreated them, he wanted to destroy, utterly — not just to punish, but to pulverize. When he was angry or upset in any other way, when his emotions were too strong, he was transformed into this creature who destroyed.
And that was beautiful because it’s how you feel when you have a very strong feeling of resentment or anger and you can’t do anything with it. You wish you could make people see just how powerful it feels. You feel like if it were unleashed it would break things — and the Incredible Hulk is that, just made flesh.
