Our daily round-up of news around the comics space, from the gutters and beyond.

“Alcohol and story is as intertwined as the genres of G-Funk and P-Funk. Hemingway, Thompson, Kerouac were all lovers of drinking. So, when Arcade Brewery decided to start their “6-pack Stories” series, the wedding of beer and story made sense. But their inspiration was comics rather than novels.”

Comics and beer. A perfect match, I say.

“Created by an artist and animation student from New Zealand named Chelsey Furedi, who says the comic “follows the tales of two opposing teenage gangs in the 1950s with an LGBTQ theme” who need to “set aside their differences to fight for what they have in common,” Rock and Riot is one of my favorite webcomic finds in a long time. You guys, this is like the perfect, poc-filled, queer lady-centered version of Grease that we’ve always dreamed of.”

I want to read this comic RIGHT NOW.

“These big multiverse events aren’t just about showcasing radically different versions of familiar characters, but also about going back to stories that have been told already.”

This is an interesting read about comic book universe events. I know many people love them, but my feelings are more mixed.
