“In Real Life” by Cory Doctorow and Jen Wang Is an Enlightened Comic About Gaming, Friendship, and Digital Bonds

I make no secret among my friends about my love for artist and comics creator Jen Wang.  Ever since I stumbled onto her debut graphic novel Koko Be Good, I have been hooked on Wang’s elegant visual style, her use of color, and her breathtaking ability to communicate emotion through her illustrations.

So imagine my excitement when I heard about In Real Life, which just debuted last week. Written by Cory Doctorow and illustrated by Jen Wang, In Real Life tells the story of Anda, a quiet, geeky girl who joins the massive multiplayer game Coarsegold Online. In the game Anda can look and act however she wants, and she quickly becomes a high-level player…

Navigate Love, Death, and Mystery in the Haunting “Judecca”

A combination of paranormal horror, occult mystery, and romantic drama, Judecca, by Noora Heikkilä and co-written by Jonathan Meecham, tells the story of beleaguered day-laborer Sharky, a denizen of a strange and dangerous harbor town that serves as a port to incoming souls.  Populated by lost souls, fish-faced men, frightening psychopomps, and intimidating supernatural creatures, the town appears trapped in time and memory, as its inhabitants toil in the thralls of lust and fear, incapable to move on like the newly dead who arrive to their shore, only to be ferried away by the enigmatic boatman Kharon.

"That country where it is always turning late in the year. That country where the hills are fog and the rivers are mist; where noons go quickly, dusks and twilights linger, and midnights stay… 
That country whose people are autumn people, thinking only autumn thoughts. Whose people passing at night on the empty walks sound like rain”

- Ray Bradbury, The October Country

11 Songs of Autumn, on 8tracks

I’m such an Autumn purist I never want to reblog anything fall or Halloween themed during September because, for me, September retains too much of summer (especially here in NY where it’s still pretty warm and green)

But don’t worry, on October 1st it is gonna be Autumn as HELL up on this blog.
