This week’s comics haul.  If you but one book this week, make sure it’s Robert Kirkmam & Paul Azaceta’s @imagecomics bool OUTCAST. I’m biased because I’ve worked with Paul more than any other artist, but this is some his best work, and there isn’t a nicer guy in #comics

Street Angel drawing I did at #HeroesCon in a copy of the new @adhousebooks edition.
Order STREET ANGEL at your local comic book shop or Amazon now. You can also get issue 1 on Comixology from Monkeybrain! SEE more Street Angel art here.

Also from SVA MFAVN’s murderer’s row of faculty, Jim Rugg (with whom I co-teach Digital Short Story) - STREET ANGEL.  I cannot say enough good things about this book.  I like it so much that I’m going to order the new edition even though I have the old one.  (If she’s reading this, I would like the one I gave to my ex back though, so I can give that copy to someone who would appreciate it),  Seriously, this book so captures the joy of what comics should me it’s a must read if there ever was one.

THE SLAP

Remember that video where all those strangers kissed one another on film for the first time? Could anything be more beautiful than that? Yes. Something could.

My friend Max Landis made a video of strangers slapping each other. It’s by far my favorite thing he’s ever done.  Here’s Max describing what he did:

"I gathered acquaintances, friends both casual and close, paired them randomly, put them in a void, and asked them to hit each other in the face. No one was pressured, and everyone was hit as hard as THEY asked to be hit. To go beyond the parody for the full story of what happened, be sure to watch Point of Impact."
