Zac Gorman And Friends’ ‘Tossed Salad & Scrambled Eggs’ Frasier Zine Can’t Come Fast Enough

Thanks to Netflix, an entire generation has had the opportunity to binge-watch Frasier, the 11-season Kelsey Grammer-starring Cheer's spinoff set in Seattle that chronicled the radio call-in show hosting, café-crawling sitcommery of Dr. Frasier Crane. A sample of this binge-watching population, of course, has been a vanguard of comics talent, including Nedroid's Anthony Clark, Gunshow's K.C. Green and many more. So it's only fitting that I've spent the past 10 months or so stoked to see more of Magical Game Time creator Zac Gorman's upcoming Tossed Salad And Scrambled Eggs zine, which could very well pack tons of oddball Frasier homages into a package -- just miles of Niles, man.

Jason Fischer aka JFish has got his monsters on his mind and his mind on his monsters -- and he's transporting them to paper with Monstroleum: Monsters of the Dragon's Keep, a five-volume encyclopedia of sorts covering the characteristics of 55 total foes (11 per volume) that readers might encounter on a dungeon crawl. But that's not all. To expedite the process, JFish is offering three tiers of subscription preorders that will put even more mythological menaces in the hands of his fans.

Inkstuds Spotlight – LeSean Thomas & Knowledge

LeSean Thomas Inkstuds
LeSean Thomas

Comics as we know it is wide and fractured. There's Direct Market comics, bookstore comics, webcomics, indie comics, manga, Eurocomics, and several more subcultures. I'm curious about what working under the broad umbrella of "comics" is like for creators, publishers, critics, academics, and more. Over the course of this month, I'm going to interview several people whose work, position, or goals I find interesting and attempt to paint a picture of what "comics" means today.

For the month of February, I'm taking over the Inkstuds podcast in order to introduce Inkstuds Spotlight, a focused look at what it means to be in comics. A comprehensive look isn't my goal. My goal is to show you several different slices of life in comics, as the people I'm interviewing this month play a wide variety of roles in comics. For the final interview in the series, I speak with LeSean Thomas.

As the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles come back into the public eye with the second season of their CG animated Nickelodeon series and this summer's Michael Bay-produced live action movie, so too must Vanilla Ice. It is simply the way of things.

Ice is indeed back with an invention that isn't entirely brand new, but it may grab a hold of you tightly. It's a Kraft Macaroni and Cheese commercial in which Ice, who has apparently swallowed his pride and taken a job as a stocker at a supermarket, sings "Ninja Rap" with an annoyed kid's mom. Check out the video after the jump.

‘Strange Kid Comics Magazine’ Hits Kickstarter For A 24-Page Satanic Teddy Ruxpin Story

Strange Kid Comics on Kickstarter

I don't want to get all "'80s/'90s Kid" on everybody, because God help me if I ever start speaking in BuzzFeed/Facebook status update phrases, but if you're of a certain age there's a pretty good chance that you have a lot of nostalgic affection for stuff like Teddy Ruxpin, Stretch Armstrong and those Troll dolls with the hair. If you do, you have of course wondered what would've happened if those toys were possessed by demonic spirits unleashed by the power of Heavy Metal.

Now, at last, you can find out. For their fourth printed issue, the Strange Kids Club website is putting out a Kickstarter-funded magazine featuring not only the art of MadBalls designer James Groman, but also a 24-page comic written by Benito Cereno.
