Gag Comics are thriving, and I welcome it. I devoured more webcomics in my day than a functioning anything should. Now I’ll just bide my time until high-concept Warren Ellis knockoffs are back in vogue…


 I’m not doing a jig on NFT scams’ graves. I’m breakdancing. It’s an airflare party. I’m doing side flips from ponzi headstone to headstone.

Obviously, there are several other genres of crypto scam, and NFTs could bounce back any minute. But I got to watch dozens of digital corsairs go to the gallows at the same time. And it feels good.
