Like Gronkwena's "I knew I was different" comic (a personal favorite of mine), White and Clamors' comic starts out like a million others on the web about a person feeling discontent with their body, then it goes somewhere you don't expect.

Interview: Antony Johnston talks about his new Image Comics series The Fuse, a police procedural set on a space station: “There have been ‘space cop’ stories before, and I’m sure there will be again, but many of them are more concerned with ker-razy sci-fi stuff than the actual crime. With The Fuse, that balance is reversed—there are no wacky aliens, no laser-gun spaceships, and definitely no psi powers. The sci-fi elements are there to serve the mystery.”

How can you find out if a musician is really indie or backed by a record company? Upload the song to Youtube and wait to see which major company claims copyright.  This is f-ing brilliant, and it would make for an amazing piece of journalism if anyone had the balls to write about pirating music.

Batgirl ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Batgirl takes the A.L.S. Ice Bucket Challenge
Drawn by Brenden Fletcher, Cameron Stewart and Babs Tarr

If you're reading this on the Internet, it's a safe bet that you’ve heard of the A.L.S. Ice Bucket Challenge, in which people challenged by friends dump buckets of cold water over their own heads to raise awareness of A.L.S., more commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease.  Over the past few weeks, the challenge has taken the internet by storm, but when the artists behind the new Batgirl became the most recent victims of the challenge, they decided to take it to a whole new level. 
"All three of us were called out to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge by Stella at Batgirl To Oracle. Since we all live in different countries we figured we’d try something different and get Batgirl to do it for us. ;)  Please donate at the link, even only a few dollars. it’s for a good cause!"
