Well, here we are
we’re the princes of the universe, with the holidays over, January begun, and nothing but winter weather to look forward to until spring… except that, wondrously, January is a totally kickass month for comics. This week alone we’ve got a new issue of ODY-C and Storm, and ongoing issues in the Edward Scissorhands and Hellboy and the B.P.R.D. miniseries. But what’s utterly new and totally great this week? Check out the gallery!
There's no cross domain hackery or tracking voodoo, it's just some sweet jQuery animations.
Please, think of the animations.
In the meantime, enjoy the html version below. I guess. If that's your thing.
