The Snail King and His Mystery Mission


A & E

Interior. Morning. Mr. Smallking’s bedroom. The alarm rings. Loud annoying music. 6 a.m. Mr. Smallking opens his eyes. He gets up instantly from his bed, fixes it, puts on his robe on, kisses the portrait on the wall [a large black-and-white framed photo of a lady in her late 50s. Woman’s face is crooked with a wide, fake smile. She is wearing the same small, round glasses we noticed on Mr. Smallking. The picture is hanging on the wall right above his small bed.

The Parabolic Trajectory of a Dynamic New Author


General Art

The best thing about attending a convention like L.A.’s Comikaze or San Diego Comic-Con isn’t the big-ticket events and vendors, as exciting as they are, but the opportunity to meet dazzlingly creative independent artists. I never fail to be impressed by the diverse, idiosyncratic visions of talented individuals having a go at sharing their work with the public. One example comes from last year’s Comikaze, where I came across ...read
