    Aven— “AVEN” what?!

    I assume Joe is working on a relaunch of “Avengelyne.”

    WAALLLL, I’ll spare you the details, but I am in pretty dire financial straits and I need to open up commissions again. I hate to do this because, um, I’m not even done with the last round of commissions (they’re on the plate for this week, though), but I’ve got to raise OHHHHHH about four thousand dollars in the next two months or so. Neat, huh?

    To start off, I’m opening up ten slots for Half-Pint Hero commissions only (those are the little cutesy guys up above) starting at $25, incl shipping. These are black-and-white illos (sometimes with gray marker highlights) on 8.5x11 cardstock, they can be whatever character you’d like, or maybe a little drawing of you, or your friends, or your imaginary friends, or maybe of your enemies and you can use the drawings to taunt those guys. Your choice!

    Single figure is $25, $5 for every additional figure, please drop me a line at calamityjon@gmail.com to reserve a spot and let me know what you’d like. Paypal is happily accepted. All commissions will be finished and in the mail by September 15, 2014. 

    Thanks all!

    Wow, this is a perfect example of good art straight up destroyed by bad coloring.

    I thought about saying this about the new Batgirl, but I’ll say it now—

    Things that are nice, cool, and/or fun:

    1) fan art
    2) cosplay
    3) reblogs, retweets
    4) fan blogs
    5) fanfic
    6) those photo sets with scanned panels and a meaningful quote or w/e

    Things that are absolutely essential:

    1) pre-ordering the actual comic
