I’ve always loved me some Thrilbent.
Great writers, amazing artwork and design, and a dedication to trying something new with the classic medium of comics. So I’m super excited to tell you that Moth City is back on the weekly schedule, every Friday (US) starting next week with Season 2.

In the Pi of the Beholder
Team: Mark Waid, Dennis Culver, Nolan Woodard, Troy Peteri
And now for the kind of fun that we remember from childhood cartoon favourites, another fresh series, Mini Comics Included, which really knows how to through down the gauntlet and challenge those ‘dark and gritty’ stories that we’re all become obsessed with. I mean, just look at that title:
