  10. Thinking of Crowdfunding? Make Sure You’re Not Doing Anything Illegal!

    Some thoughts from an IRL lawyer.

    We are living in an amazing age for content creators and entrepreneurs. The rise of crowdfunding has revolutionized how artists and fans create new and exciting works, and how entrepreneurs can start entrepreneur-ing.

  12. Things We Saw Today: A Very Whovian New Comic Book Day

    Allons-y! Geronimo!

    I've been loving Titan Comics' Doctor Who stories for both the Tenth and Eleventh Doctors - they sound just like the characters from the shows, they both feature female companions of color, and they're way more interesting than the actual current episodes of Who. The first volumes of both Doctors' stories come out today with great covers from Alice X. Zhang and I recommend you pick them up!

    I grew up on Sailor Moon, so my love for tough female characters started at a very young age. The last zine project I curated was Moon Power, which was a Sailor Moon fanzine, and after the success of that project I decided I wanted to do a new zine that focused on female characters and had original content from artists. I’ve always loved the character design and art direction behind video games such as Street Fighter, Darkstalkers, Guilty Gear, Soul Calibur and others.
