Jim Rugg’s ‘Supermag’ Is Super, Is Also A Magazine [Review]

Supermag-1

Jim Rugg makes me angry. Like the “seeing red, can’t think straight, fists-balled up in rage, flipping tables like it was my job”-type of angry. His latest collection of comics, design and illustration pieces, Supermag, – published by the fine folks at Adhouse – makes me want to punch a hole in the wall and then punch a hole inside of that hole and then scream loudly into both of those holes. See, it’s like this: Jim Rugg is just too damn good at comics.

There are a lot of reasons why comic book conventions are great.

And on that front, la

Read ‘Afrodisiac’ Online: Blaxploitation Flicks x Trashy ’70s Marvel Comics

afrodisiac

If there are two things we love, it's gotta be blaxploitation movies and trashy '70s Marvel comics. Blaxploitation films managed to capture the zeitgeist and turn a thirst for social justice (and hatred for injustice) into compelling entertainment. '70s Marvel books were full of s
