And now, an unpaid advertisement for a comic I haven't read yet. This Wednesday Wild Children, a graphic novella drawn by Riley Rossmo and written by my boy Ales Kot, comes out on Image Comics. Like I say, I haven't read the comic yet, so you shouldn't take this little notice as any kind of voucher for its content. Ales has done a bunch of press for his book at bigger websites than this one, so google around a little and let him tell you about it himself if you want to know more. What I want to do is encourage you to support art made by one of my closest friends in Los Angeles, who had my back in some pretty fucking dark moments and some pretty amazing ones too, and basically contributed a lot to keeping me alive and sane in a place where that stuff can be hard to do. Ales has been working on this comic as long as I've known him, and I'm really happy he's gotten a big break at Image of all places, a company whose front office is like 50% old friends and acquaintances of mine. Seriously: comics is full of really shitty people, and Ales is one of the good ones, so check this thing out now that you finally have the chance.
