Kinukitty reviewed the baseball yaoi Baseball Heaven.

I discussed E. Nesbitt’s Book of Dragons.

We had a brief discussion about the relationship between cartooning, caricature, and stereotype.

Richard Cook looked at whether Blazing Combat is anti-war.

Cartoonist Michael Arthur discussed his reaction as a gay man to yaoi. Lots of interesting (and contentious) thoughts in comments from Vom Marlowe, JRBrown, Caro, and others.

I talked about Tom Spurgeon and Phil Hands’ anti-public union cartoon.

James Romberger wrote about the feminism in Francois Truffaut’s Jules and Jim.

I reviewed Jenna Jameson’s autobiography.

I reviewed a collection of pornographic film strips from the 30s, 40s, 50s, and 60s.

Utilitarians Everywhere

At Splice Today I talk about God, creation, and new albums by Stryper and Deicide.

Also at Splice I review the oddly coherent Jess Franco film The Sinister Eyes of Dr. Orloff.
