I’ve seen bemoaned on many an occasion the comparative shortage of stories centered around female friendship. Quite often in fiction, The Girl is there to fall in love with The Boy (or two, but that’s a whole ‘nother post on love triangles, right there), and The Boy is there to fall in love with The …

You’re here because you have created something that you’d like to share with the world and maybe get a hard copy to strategically place on your coffee table – and maybe your mom’s coffee table.

For this month, I thought I’d tackle a particular show which has its own fandom (something I hope to continue to do throughout the course of this column). When I was going through possible choices, I had a few criteria: it had to be a fandom I was already part of, I wanted a somewhat newer …

Luna Station Press had a great time this past Saturday. We had a table at the Free Comic Book Day event at Time Warp Comics & Games in Cedar Grove, NJ. I was lucky enough to have Erin DeMoss (our LSQ cover artist) and C. Elizabeth Vescio (one of LSP’s star authors) with me. Look …

“I don’t know who you are, or where you came from, but from now on you’ll do as I say.” -Leia Organa Princess Leia was one of my young-me role models, along with Wonder Woman, Teela from He-Man, Scarlett from GI Joe, and a few other ladies who got stuff done. I remember playing Star …

You work hard. You show kindness. You pay your taxes. You just remembered you have to pay your taxes. You deserve to meet three animators that will explode your brain. There are no fluffy 3D clouds or meet-cute plots here. But there are unforgettable images and squealing rapture. Time Consumption Advisory: these artists’ work is …
