As those who read the post below know, Tom Crippen has very kindly agreed to join the Hooded Utilitarian. I’ve posted before about Tom’s Comics Journal column “The Post-Human Review.” I was mostly positive but a little ambivalent there, I think. After reading a few more of the columns, and thinking about it a bit, though, I realized that he’d become the first writer I turned to in the Journal who wasn’t me, and that his prose style was making me a little jealous.

So I’m thrilled to have him. Tom’s promised to reprint some of his Post-Human Review columns here for the digitally-based community, and also to uphold the Hooded Utilitarian’s general reputation for posting that is erratic in both timing and subject-matter. Welcome aboard, Tom!
