Imagining Edward Gorey’s ‘Star Trek’ Tribbles Comic


Despite the obvious stereotypes about "Star Trek" fans, they often defy easy categorization, and can even count artist Edward Gorey among their number. The master of the macabre Victorian cartoon, Gorey once gave an interview with "The Boston Globe" in the late 1970s where he admitted to becoming a devotee after watching TV for the first time:

Finally, A Motion Comic We Can All Get Behind


There are a lot of mixed feelings about the idea of motion comics right now, so allow me to introduce you to a comics/video hybrid that we can all get behind.
