All-ape action! * Slaughter Nick for President, in which an early '90s TV star discovers he's a folk hero in Serbia. The Searching for Sugarman of schlock TV. Also, in revival at the Laurelhurst Theater & Pub this week, Mel Brooks...

Rob Stewart was once a private detective on TV. Now, some twenty years later, he finds out he's a cult hero in Serbia. "Slaughter Nick for President" is a documentary about his trip to Europe.

Between this and Philip Seymour Hoffman drinking from a Little My from MOOMIN coffee cup in A MOST WANTED MAN, it's been an amusing week for comic book cameos in movies.

Going to pick up your comics today and you didn't give ARCHER COE & THE NATURAL SHOCKS a spin? Well, it's not too late. Pick up my collaboration with Dan Christensen and Oni Press on your trip today. 

And you don't have to take my word for it, here are some reviews from people who liked it, as well as a bonus: one of the reference shots I sent Dan for the nightclub scenes.
Archer Coe and the Thousand Natural Shocks has been out in book form for a week now, and response continues to be strong. Thanks to everyone who has tweeted at us or messaged to say they were reading and/or finished and liked it. Given that it's new comics day, if you're heading into the store to pick up your books--perhaps United States of Murder Inc. #3 or the Rocket Girl  trade paperback--then consider adding mine and Dan Christens...

"The rhythm of life goes round," the singer repeats, summing up a set ranging from politics to gang violence to gender identity. He's in fine voice, belting and going gentle without strain.

Mel Brooks takes the lead in 1977's "High Anxiety," a soft skewering of Alfred Hitchcock movies that still garners some laughs but definitely shows its age.

Check out this post when you get a minute. Brent Schoonover, who worked with me on DARK HORSE PRESENTS, found some damage to his roof that needs to be repaired, and so he's doing commissions to pay the unexpected bill. Great art for a good family of folks. 

And especially if you're not going to San Diego Comic Con, here's your chance to get yourself a sketch!

This has been doing the rounds but worth continuing to post because my goodness, this is some lovely animation.
