Once again we’re celebrating the amazing work of Bay Area artist Bart D. Frescura. His images are often used on this site to illustrate The Daily Slice. What is it that we (Erin, Clément & Co.) like about them the most? We like the way Bart is able to capture the beauty...
Kooky and Spooky

Kooky and Spooky...

Last night when Greg said the house and its occupants reminded him of The Addams Family it made me think about the movie. And then I remembered that weird little black and white TV series by the same name ran from 1964 to 1966. John Astin was Gomez Addams, Carolyn Jones played Morticia....

Zombie Reporter

Zombie Reporter...

People keep asking me about zombies and since I nearly became one—courtesy of the ghoul, Clément—I’m probably better versed in the subject (the real truth about zombies, that is …) than most. So let me tell you about a poor half-Irish boy whose mother was Greek. His...

Thriller...

A girl, a boy, the walking dead … everything you want in a music video. It’s cute, except for the murky, lurky parts. This a.m. took a stumble through the zombie-pop past. Uplifting … literally. —Erin Orison, DEAD LOVE/The Daily Slice

“What am I going to do about you, Ryu?” I watched Miura fuss over my unconscious lover. He adjusted the pillow beneath his fellow gangster’s head, sniffed at the glass by the bedside and ruffled Ryu’s dark hair. “Now Miura will vanish with the chip and you are going to be...
Japanese Ghosts and Demons

Japanese Ghosts and Dem...

I love Japanese ghost stories and that’s why I’m crazy about Utagawa Kuniyoshi. Kuniyoshi was born in Japan in 1797. Originally his name was Yoshisaburō, but he changed it when he went to work in Utagawa Toyokuni’s studio as a printmaker. Like all great artists...
Southern Voodoo

Southern Voodoo...

I’ve been silently slinking around in the South picking up the scent of fine things and here’s my double secret: Voodoo Tiki Bar & Lounge in Charleston. Get that island magic in a town where the sea breeze knocks out the mo-skeetos and no-see-ums … most of the...
Voodoo Baby

Voodoo Baby...

Quit playing around with kids stuff, will you? Get a working toy that’s packed with power. Cute, yes, but also useful. You can get a Voodoo Baby that will make someone love you, eliminate clingy people, silence schemers, and so, so much more. These tiny, palm-sized softies are...
Has Hell Found You?

Has Hell Found You?...

Thinking back on WonderCon today and the many, many talented guys I met. Oh, the darkness and the deliriousness of it all!  A favorite—because of his super strip, Hell Has Found Me—is Scott Aleric, a self described “starving artist” (well, he says he isn’t technically...
