I noticed that there was a pretty strong positive reaction to the Giggler’s appearance in Evil Inc last week, so I decided to do a NSFW episode of Evil Inc After Dark to flesh out her ongoing relationship with Wingman. That will post for my Patreon backers today. And all month, we’ll be celebrating Halloween with sexy, spooky content, a free 80-page Halloween eComic, and lots more. This is a great time to join us on Patreon!


Webcomics workhorses Dave Kellett and Brad Guigar are talking shop with  Kazu Kibuishi on the eve of the release of his eighth volume of his graphic-novel series, “Amulet.” TheNew York Times Best-Selling graphic novelist talks about the early crisis that redefined his career.

BUT FIRST, Kazu Kibuishi enjoys a tasty, tasty croissant.
