You’re doomed to failure, naturally, but by all means, commence your futile efforts. I will savor your anagnorisis in the same way an ophiocordyceps unilateralis organism relishes the very exquisite climax in which its spores burst forth from the parasitic structure growing inside of and possessing the host ant.

My New Year’s Resolution for 2014? I’m So glad you asked. I plan on executing more comics! Sure, I won’t make any friends with this resolution, but who needs friends when you’ve got the promise of countless tears shed in the name of my brutal and razor sharp critical analysises! Wait… is it analysi? Analysae? Now I’m just being anal.

Grindhouse Doors Open at Midnight No. 3 The first two issues of this seedy movie theater-inspired series were all about sexy bee-women from mars. The third issue begins a new mini-story called Prison Ship Antares. It's about women in a spaceship bound for the only other earth-like planet nearby (and that's a twenty year ride). When the ship passes saturn and communication becomes limited the warden of the ship is finally able to unleash her evil plans. But will the tough-as-nails prisoners fight back? Bag it or board it up? This is an action-packed, highly sexualized comic about women in space.
