Fund Some Spooky-Silly Comics by Jess Smart Smiley and Dave Scheidt

You want some creepy terror that people of all-ages can read and enjoy? Of course you do — everybody wants that! So Jess Smart Smiley and Dave Scheidt are working together to make just that happen, but they need some Kickstarter help.

The duo are trying to raise $5000 to give readers stories on a haunted toilet, a garbage-eating werewolf, and so much more. Check out the project here to help donate to the soon-to-be great book. There are plenty of rewards left for those wanting to toss some bucks toward Jess Smart Smiley and Dave Scheidt — two equally awesome friends of mine and truly creative folks.

Bean cans, bags of chips, cigarettes, drinks, frozen dinners, chewing gum and newspapers — all of these items were handcrafted out of felt by Sparrow in this unique project idea. Those who want to check out the shop who are located in London can head east toward Bethnal Green. The rest of us will just have to admire from our keyboards.

Hawkeye Shirts Will Benefit Signing Time Foundation

Matt Fraction’s critically acclaimed Hawkeye series isn’t really stopping in its momentum of being one of the best solo Marvel titles ever created. Now there’s a t-shirt to show your love for the title, as well as the love of others, thanks to WeLoveFine.com. This shirt features sign language in reference to Hawkeye issue #19 and will be sold to benefit the Signing Time Foundation, which aims to make sign language a fun activity that’s also very accessible for deaf children.

The shirt is $25 and available in purple and black in both men and women sizes. If you haven’t already read Hawkeye, I suggest you do, as it’s one of the finest comics out there at the moment.

THE SINGLE GREATEST THING TO COME OUT OF SAN DIEGO COMIC CON 2014
SDCC is under way and fans are getting their fill of the latest movie trailers, TV pilots, celebrity appearances, newest collectibles, and the thing that I’ve enjoyed the most so far has been this picture of a dude punching a bear in the face from the Magic: The Gathering panel earlier today.
I’m a huge MTG nerd and the wait for the next block, Khans of Tarkir, has been killing me. This picture should hold me over until it drops this September.
And now for speculation: what do you think this card even does? I’m hoping for something flavorful like “Whenever this creature enters the battlefield it deals 2 damage to target creature or player.” Take that, bears!
