Larry Marder Interviewed at NYCC

An interview with Larry Marder, creator of Beanworld and former CEO of Image Comics, talks about a most peculiar comic book experience, 25 years of anthropomorphic beans and making comics vs. running a comics company.

Larry Marder's Website:

I've been a fan of Beanworld since I first discovered it as a kid, and you will not find a stranger, more giddily wonderful comic.

Harlan Ellison is a Stupid Stupid Head

Is it true that Harlan Ellison monitors Google Alerts to see if anyone is bad mouthing him so he can jump up and down on whoever it is? That he has no sense of humor about himself? Harlan Ellison, the guy who likes to grope women at cons, sit on other people's short stories for decades so they can't publish them, and freaks out and sues anyone who looks at him wrong?

You know, for a guy who's been around for a while, Ellison sure has thin skin.

Also, he's a douchebag.

You hear me, Harl? I'm talkin about you!
