  Don't forget to vote in the Harveys! Ballots due Aug. 15. 

UPDATE: The email address to return ballots to is a dreaded SBCglobal address that no one at Fantagraphics can email to. I guess no Harvey Awards for us this year!

Zak Sally & Nate Denver at Play
Written by Jason Miles | Filed under Untagged  6 Aug 2008 9:15 AM

The day after Zak Sally and Nate Denver played the Fantasygraphics comic book store we tried to go see the batman (stinks) movie at the imax bubble but it was sold out so then we went to Archie Mcphee's and looked at stuff.

(Zak and I did eventually see the 12 and a half hour long batman movie and it was... uh... the best movie ever... I guess...)

Curse of the Dark Knight.
Written by Jacob Covey | Filed under Beasts 5 Aug 2008 10:51 AM

A comics-related post on the topic of curses over at Cryptomundo. Is The Dark Knight cursed? The argument isn't that strong (yet) but it's worth reading this brief rundown.

I'm going to spoil Loren Coleman's final word by sharing it here, as it perfectly summarizes my own interest in BEASTS! : "From Batman to Mothman, whether or not there are curses is not important. The fact that they have become part of popular culture and that there is a dark sense that there may be such things in the modern world, in the end, may be what becomes more significant."

And, by the way, I'm incredibly pleased to say that Coleman (one of the world's leading Cryptozoologists) has written a brief history of cryptozoology for BEASTS! Book Two.
