Happy 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who!
I’m the co-creator and writer of a little comic book series called “Snakor’s Pizza”. To date we’ve published 3 issues (plus a summer special). I’m working on the latest issue now, but in the meantime I wanted to share this great little story my pals Dave Howlett & Toby Orr put together. This will see print in the future, but for now this is the only place you can read it. Enjoy! - sj
Do yourself a favor and find Snakor’s Pizza #1-#3… a great boon by an even greater bunch of guys
I am so glad I stumbled across this.
Comics Editor Carol faces down shirtless white men, women in shredded gowns and hordes of rabid animals just to bring you this week’s article on postwar men’s adventure magazine covers…
A man presses himself against the wall of a collapsed mine as a grizzly, reared on its hind legs, swipes at him through a gap in the rocks. A man, barechested, fights off a swarm of vampire bats as they tear his flesh. A man, chained, grits his teeth as a woman with a Nazi armband whips him with a crop.
If the covers of Man’s Life are anything to go by, a man’s life is filled with Nazis, floppy women in tattered gowns and animal attacks.
If you enjoyed the illustrations in Comics Editor Carol’s article about men’s adventure magazines from the 1950s and 1960s, here are many more. Art by Norm Saunders and Wil Hulsey.

Adventure Time’s “Princess Cookie” gets Comics Editor Carol in her heart zone.
In a lot of ways, Finn is who I would’ve wanted to be when I was a kid—if I couldn’t have Jake’s rad shapechanging abilities. (Shapechanging abilities are mathematical). I’m sure there are still boys upset at the thought of a girl pretending to be Finn, but it’s pretty clear that Finn, Jake and Adventure Time don’t mind girls being adventurers and boys being princesses and not just in the two episodes with Fionna and Cake, the gender and species-swapped versions of Finn and Jake. (Also, featuring the excellent Prince Gumball, voiced by Neil Patrick Harris). But while I love Fionna and Cake, somehow Princess Cookie got me in my heart zone.
