It might not be your particular interest, but what's your take on horror comics? Do you think the genre and the medium work well together? If so, got any favourite creators/stories?

royalboiler:

Yeah, I’ve written some ideas for horror comics but never drawn them, I feel like maybe my work is too based in comfort for that. 

my favorite creators to do horror comics are Junji Ito and Emily Carroll. 

here’s Ito drawing of Lovecraft: I grew up reading Lovecraft’s stuff. I guess he’s on the sci fi end of horror. with lots of old aliens and ancient creatures of the deep. I feel like he was the 1st artist whose work made me deal with the idea that I could sometimes like work when I found the person to have some lame ideas. Like how Lovecraft’s work seems powered by a fear of the other that also had him spouting some shitty racist ideas. 

Junji Ito’s Lovecraft is my preferred Lovecraft these days now that I’m old savvy enough that I can’t mentally gloss over the xenophobia in his actual writing anymore — though I do so like the army of fuzzy kitties that save the day in The Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath… Maybe I could re-read that. Or just reread this instead: http://www.mangareader.net/ito-junjis-cat-diary/1

It's never too late to start skateboarding. You could be 50 and step on a skate for the first time and fall in love. It might be too late to go pro but that's not what it's about.

mostlyskateboarding:

Right on.

Because I’m not going to have the time to start skating until I retire but I totally still intend to do it.

Did we really almost forget Nikola Tesla’s birthday? Shame on us! The ever fascinating Tesla was born July 10, 1856 to Serbian parents in what is now Croatia.  This image of Tesla is from the February 1919 issue of Electrical Experimenter. Tesla published what amounts to a pretty nifty autobiography, My Inventions, in the publication:
I. My Early Life
II. My First Efforts in Invention
III. My Later Endeavors
IV. The Discovery of the Tesla Coil and Transformer
V. The Magnifying Transmitter
See all our copies of The Electrical Experimenter we’ve digitized, where you can find some of the other articles he penned:
Tesla’s Views on Electricity and the War in August 1917, p.30 
The Effect of Statics on Wireless Transmission, January 1919, p.627
Famous Scientific Illusions in February 1919, p.692
The True Wireless in May 1919, p.27
Electrical Oscillators in July 1919, p.228
