    • Pokemon Go has definitely been in the new a lot lately, with police departments issuing safety warnings and a Holocaust museum asking players not to visit if they're just going to play the game.

    Great article! I used to sneer at most fan fiction, but over the past few years I’ve come to see it as a great way for new writers to get started and work on their craft. After all, everybody’s gotta start somewhere.

    I appreciate the focus on comic books outside the superhero genre. Some of the best comic books I’ve read have been crime comics (100 Bullets, Scalped), horror comics (Wytches) and sci-fi comics (Fear Agent, plus Black Science and Saga, which you mention).

    Regardless of personal taste, comics are a fantastic storytelling medium, and they offer something for everybody!
