Fish ‘N Chips, by Steve Hamaker

Many of you know Steve’s work if you have read any of the Bone books in the last few years. He is the award winning colorist of Bone, and works with Jeff Smith on all sorts of projects. He’s also got a few projects of his own, and one of my favorites is his Fish ‘N Chips series. If you ever thought adventure needed more dudes with fish bowls for heads, then you have come to the right place. They stuff is really delightful, and a blast to read, and his art is some of the best you see in this kind of independent book.

It will be in comic book stores this October, and you can use the comic book code AUG100915F to let your local shop know you want a copy. Even better, I had the privelidge of providing a pinup image in the book as well, with my own take on the characters. Lots of other artists did as well, so it really is a must have.

Addicted to Starcraft? Here take this.

A group of South Korean psychiatrists say they have successfully reduced “StarCraft” addiction by giving players a popular antidepressant.

Do YOU have a Starcraft addiction? Well, if so, you’re in luck. Seems as though the antidepressant Bupropion has been seen to decrease an “addict’s” cravings to play the game. The study was done in South Korea, where (as we all know) Starcraft is basically a national sport. They studied 11 addicts (those who played 30+ hours/week) and 8 “normal” players (about an hour/day game time). The results showed some decrease in “cravings” from the addicts. With further reading, we find out that there was no placebo group, so there is no significant way to prove that it was the drug that helped so far. Truthfully, the results haven’t sold me yet, but what do you think?

Decide for yourself.
