Response to my poll isn't exactly blowing my mind, but it's not quite as dead as Ello, so that's something I guess. Well, as a gesture of good faith, here's something:

I'm very excited for the launch of my new column at Robot 6 today! Each Sunday I'll be featuring a different comic book store, showing off their space and getting to know the people that run the real engine of this industry. Many thanks to Menachem Luchins at Escape Pod Comics for giving me such fantastic material, and being patient as we hammered out the format.

Please visit, comment, share and do all those internet things that will help keep this new column around for a long time.

And if you own a store, work at a store, or frequent a store you love, click this link to find out how your store can be featured:

Welcome to Store Tour, ROBOT 6’s new weekly exploration of comics shops, and the people who run them. Think of it as the retailer version of Shelf Porn.

My wife has #multiplesclerosis and #lupus . After years of trying to keep up with medical costs, we're just about squeezed dry. We're trying to raise money for her medical fund. Can you help?

What's with Indonesian President Joko Widodo's hand signs? (And yes, he does have the best name ever. It's so fun to say.)

I guess that's a mystery for another day. Today, he appointed his country's first female foreign minister. His cabinet also has the most women of any previous cabinet in Indonesian history.

Sorry everyone, looks like Christmas is cancelled. All our presents are stuck in the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach.

Mirroring the legendary reputation of terrible Los Angeles traffic, a bottleneck has caused a 2-week delay at the twin ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach in LA

Danny MacAskill is totally calm, like it's no big deal while he's bike riding along precarious mountain ridges. I didn't breathe for about 7 minutes.

In Danny MacAskill’s video, you may not breathe for about seven minutes. Cut Media recently released a short film on YouTube called The Ridge depicting trials

Are Gmail's days numbered? By Google's own new app Inbox?

(Yes, it's my latest article for The Inquisitr. Don't pretend you haven't been waiting for this kind of amazingness.)

(Is posting about this on Google+ ironic? Or is it more like Alanis Morrissette ironic, as in not at all?)

Google Inbox was launched in beta last week from the Gmail development team. It’s meant to change the way we read email, and it may be the first step in

The Aquaman Crystal is coming! Soon we'll be able to breathe underwater. Then we'll be riding giant sea horses. There's no limit to our accomplishments!

Corey Blake does things on the Internet, and sometimes even in real life.
Introduction

As a comic book pundit, advocate and educator, Corey Blake regularly contributes to the Comic Book Resources blog Robot 6. He also advises for the award-winning documentary and comics advocacy movement Dig Comics, and is a member of the Part-Time Fanboy podcast. He ran the web-magazine The Comics Observer, which provides a variety of perspectives on the comic book art form and industry.

As a comedic performer/actor, Corey is a founding member of the improv comedy group The You Convention, a house team at The Improv Space and the independent improv troupe T.M.A. (The Meaningless Acronyms). Every year he performs a variety of characters as part of the popular Halloween show Drama After Dark: A Night of the Macabre with Poe and Gorey. He was a member of The Magic Meathands, which performed fully improvised shows for all kinds of audiences, including homeless shelters and other community outreach centers. He also has a history with writing and performing sketch comedy, notably with the Los Angeles branch of The 3rd Floor and as a founding member of Foe Pa. Corey has been seen in online web-series such as The Jeff Lewis 5-Minute Comedy Hour (Best Web Comedy-Episodic, Clicker.com), The Starmind Record (Best Direction and Editing, LA Web Series), Poopdog Entertainment’s Mayer for Mayor (Funny or Die featured video) and Chatroom of Solitude on Stan Lee’s World of Heroes YouTube channel. His on-camera performances have also included short films Tough Love (Official Selection, Festival de Cannes’ Short Film Corner) and Hattie Needs Rehab (Excellence in Performance, Extreme Filmmaker 48 Hour Film Festival), the feature film Chasing Happiness, and the pilot for the children’s show “Imagination Station”.

Corey Blake also has experience behind the camera. He has written comedy sketches, and directed and produced videos for the Magic Meathands Originals sketch web-series, as well as sketches for Foe Pa and The 3rd Floor: LA. He co-wrote and co-produced the feature length musical comedy Mission: Improbable. Additionally, he helped produce the award-winning documentary Dig Comics (Best Documentary, Comic-Con Int’l: Independent Film Festival; Official Selection, Festival de Cannes’ Short Film Corner) and a demo trailer for the charitable organization Voices From Chornobyl.

He’s also crazy about kitties, which means the internet is a very happy place for him.
