Luke here. This blog and the podcast that it exists to support are a labor of love. In a crazy week, sitting down and recording an episode or banging out some blog posts is one of the things I look forward to the most.  That being said, the two of us are crazy busy, and ... more

What is on my nightstand this week: 2016.03.13

Still finishing up the Folding Knife. Sure we will be talking about this on the pod soon. And for comics this week, I am catching up on BPRD. Mike Mignola’s book of supernatural investigators in the Hellboy universe. Like Hellboy the movie without Hellboy the character.
