The Myriad Monikers of Gotham's Villains CHART


THIS is just plain awesome...

This massive taxonomy charts the hundreds of villains who have menaced Gotham City over the past 70 years, breaking down by name everyone from big time baddies like the Joker and Bane to lesser known miscreants like the Walrus and Batzarro. A true rogues gallery of the superstitious and cowardly lot who have taken on the Dark Knight, this print is the definitive guide to Gotham mayhem.

At $27 it seems like a bargain! Too cool!

NAMESAKE Book 1 now available!


Local writer Megan Lavey-Heaton recently dropped off her newest release, the collected edition of NAMESAKE Volume 1, with art by Isabelle Melançon... AND IT'S AWESOME!

What is NAMESAKE about? Read on:
Namesake is the story of Emma Crewe, a woman who discovers she can visit other worlds. She finds out that these are places she already knows – fantasy and fairy lands made famous through the spoken word, literature and cinema. Her power as a Namesake forces her to act as a protagonist in these familiar stories as she figures out how to get home.

But as she travels, she discovers that those controlling her story have their own selfish goals in mind – and her fate is the key to everyone’s happy ending.

Join Emma, her sister Elaine and their friends as they tumble down the rabbit hole.

If you like, adventure, humor, stories of friendship, fairy tales and fantasy, this is the comic for you.
