  1. 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. But like any new thing, the kinks are still being worked out. The crowdfunding model is so new that a lot of laws and regulations haven’t caught up with it, and so accessible that users may be diving in without fully realizing the costs or rules they have to follow.

  3. 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!

  4. Why FIGHT! Is An Important Zine For Women In Gaming And Comics

    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.

    No, this is not a pitch for another Saw movie.

  14. Actors From The Room Start Kickstarter Campaign To Fund Their Own Mockumentary

    They invited all my friends! Good thinking!

    Ever since it first premiered to a mostly confused audience at LA's Laemmle Fairfax theater in 2003, The Room has seen massive cult success as a terrible, so-bad-it's-genius favorite film.
