After the events of Kill Bill, Sofie Fatale adopts Vernita Green's daughter and trains her to take revenge on the Bride.

But as wondrous as the science is, it's hard to forget the romance of pulp space exploration: brilliantly colored landscapes, bizarre creatures with improbable physiology, foreign cultures with languages and beliefs that don't quite fit human perception
I love drawings of pretty girls. There's something especially wonderful about an artist who really captures what he or she truly loves about a female form. For Frederik Jurk, it's a sense of playful self-expression, deliberately ragged haircuts, the occasional bumps or bruises, and lots and lots of freckles
With folks like Colleen Coover, Erika Moen, Dylan Meconis, David Hahn, Terry Dodson, Steve Lieber and Jeff Parker hanging around, Portland's Periscope Studio seems like both an amazing space in which to work and an ideal spot for nurturing young talent.

I don't stumble across nearly enough webcomic fanart by a single artist in my journeys across the Internet. Certainly, webcartoonists will occasionally post the individual pieces of fanart they receive from fans (and deviantART has a nice catalog o
Amidst witty portraits of characters from Arrested Development and The Royal Tenenbaums, Julian Callos dances with dreamy illustrations where flowers are as potent as suits of armor, sea creatures fused with human bodies and galaxies intruding into unexpected spaces. Plus, he has a f
