What I Think About Stuf-Warren Ellis' Planetary


The film that no one will get right, but everyone would love to see by ash-elquilin


Planetary Or Oh, to Walk through pop culture’s silent pandemonium…

DISCLAIMER: The following article contains a lot of references to comic book history and nerd stuff that aren’t adequately explained. If you’re having trouble following, it’s because the nature of the reviewed material was intended for that exact purpose.

It is said that the very nature of success is enough to corrupt a man. It’s not unusual for people with too much money on their hands to spend huge sums on ridiculously overpriced luxuries 

Like, say, ornate hand-carved and heavily engraved butt-plugs.

What I Think About Stuff-Interview with Stephen Egged



Familiar steel in my hands, unknown concrete all around me.


What I Think About Stuff-An Interview with Stephen Egged

I’ve mentioned before that the Internet is a wonderful place. Sure, it’s 50% porn and filled with all sorts of weird crap, but from time to time, it gives you the chance to meet new people, a few of them of the creative kind that you wouldn’t have had the chance to meet any other way.

Enter Stephen Egged,

What I Think About Stuff-Human Slaves Of An Insect Nation


Human slaves of an insect nation by VDen


Role Playing Games Or Human Slaves of an Insect Nation

DISCLAIMER: This is a rant article, presenting highly subjective opinions. That is all.
I’m a role playing nerd. No, I do not mean console or computer rpgs and I hate MMOs

Why yes, I am perfectly aware I’m just one guy versus 10 million players. No, I do not give a shit.

I did not like Skyrim (found it impossibly droll and boring in comparison to New Vegas) I cannot make myself give a shit about Baldur’s Gate 2 and don’t get me started on Diablo.

But I would get down on my knees and propose to Fallouts 1&2 every day if I could only get the chance.

What i think About Stuff-Pavlos Pavlidis and Valia Kapadai Interview...ON VIDEO!

Who said that Greece is where nerds go to die?

An Interview with artists Valium (Valia Kapadai) and Paulnaut (Pavlos Pavlidis
Back in the 90's Greece was not a very nerd-friendly place. As I mentioned back in my Metabarons Retrospective, there were hardly any comic books worth reading and there weren't any comic book artists worth following (with the exception of a very small number of hardened artists who were thought as mad art hermits.
When the 00's roled in however, this changed. You see, a small group of aspiring artists and creators had been born in the 80's, lurking in the darkest corners of the country, hidden in cultural and social shadows, until they collectively burst from their coccoons and gave us hope.

Below is a two-part video of an interview I got from both Valia and Pavlos at the Tilt Comics bookstore (who invited me for this event). But since most of you reading this are not native Greek speakers, I've arranged for the interview questions to be transcribed in English by the creators themselves


Because the rest of the world deserves love, too.
