Ask Chris #311: The Many Deaths Of The DC Universe
Q: Can you explain the difference between the Black Racer and the Black Flash and why DC needs both? - @CoreyInformin A: Oh, this one's easy. Black Racer has skis. All right, cool, see y'all next week! Okay, fine, it's a little more complicated than that. Despite the obvious difference in appearance and the fact that one of those characters tends to only show up around the Flash, they're actually pretty similar characters, both in terms of powers and in terms of what they represent. In the DC Universe, they're both aspects of capital-D Death, and I don't just think DC needs both of them, I think it could probably use a whole lot more.

FunkyWatch: December's Most Depressing Strips
Over the past 40 years, Tom Batiuk’s Funky Winkerbean has transitioned from a gag-a-day comic strip about a high school to an ongoing chronicle of pure, abject misery. Thanks to the commentary on Josh Fruhlinger’s Comics Curmudgeon, I am now completely obsessed with it, which is why I spend a little time every month rounding up its finest examples of crushing despair. The end of the year is always a time for reflection, and for me, that came today when I logged into Comics Kingdom and reupped for another year of the service that sends me each day's Funky Winkerbean and Crankshaft strip first thing in the morning, thus ensuring that I start off each day by experiencing the worst of the human condition. So as we dive into this month's strips and all the reminders that death is the only respite from the horrors of life, keep in mind that I have once again done this to myself.

FunkyWatch: December's 'Funky Winkerbean' And 'Crankshaft' Strips
Over the past 40 years, Tom Batiuk’s Funky Winkerbean has transitioned from a gag-a-day comic strip about a high school to an ongoing chronicle of pure, abject misery. Thanks to the ongoing commentary on Josh Fruhlinger’s Comics Curmudgeon, I am now completely obsessed with it, which is why I spend a little time every month rounding up its finest examples of crushing despair. One of my Christmas gift this year came from devoted FunkyWatch reader and radio DJ Evan "Funk" Davies, who gave me a year-long membership to King Features' Comics Kingdom website. Not only does this give me access to an archive of high-res Funky and Crankshaft strips, but it also means that I can have those strips emailed to me so that they're the very first thing I see when I wake up every single day for the entirety of 2014. Maybe "gift" is not the right word, but "Christmas horrifying curse" doesn't really sound right. Either way Batiuk and Chuck Ayers closed out this past year with all the uplifting joy you'd expect from a month marked by bitter cold and seasonal depression. Let's get to it!
Deadpool Annoys Cable And Takes Out Foes In New Video Game Stills, Concept Art
Weaker first-person shooter video games can confine players to unremarkable corridors and tight environments in the name of economy, but judging from new location concept art and stills, it seems that High Moon Studios is building on the kind of sprawling maps seen in their Transformers games to deliver a suitably massive Marvel Universe for Deadpool to saunter about (and kill enemies) in...

Death-Tastic Ankh Jewelry For An Endless Night [Fashion]
Ankh jewelry will always remind me of Death, the inescapably cute (and just plain inescapable) and always fashionable older sister of Neil Gaiman's The Sandman. Jamie Carr -- designer of Neighborhood Story and creator of a number of comics-inspired items like this Ramona Flowers hair clip -- put together this lovely set of accessories, updating Death's large silver ankh pendant into modern brass g
