Imagine if there was a federal law mandating $1,000 PER DAY to anyone wrongfully imprisoned.

"Born alone," we should call it. twitter.com/brainpicker/st…
This is at a charity event for Saint Jude's Children's Hospital. Someone donated 50K if the Trumps joined me onstage.
Now, unlike the rest of you FASCISTS when I heard Trump spew his "Fourth Reich" Nazi shit I turned on him like a true American patriot! When will you? twitter.com/JackPosobiec/s…
SCOTUS refused to help restrict gerrymandering, so Dems are playing hardball too now, but we desperately need Ranked Choice voting to restore some sanity. Watching the RCV experiments in Alaska et al carefully... 🤞
The power of COLOR:

It's a tradition! On Sunday, August 28th we'll be offering a Jack Kirby Lower East Side walking tour on what would have been his 105th birthday. Meet at Delancey & Essex at 5pm for an appx 90 minute event. It'll be livestreamed, too. #JackKirby105
And on the flip side, our family has tons of debt from *private* loans for our kids that don't qualify for forgiveness—and I am ALSO happy to see others benefit! 🎉 This was the right move IMO. (Esp that 5% rule.) �twitter.com/MarkBrooksArt/…pr
My graduate student Bien Klomberg has a new paper out! This one examines one of the key issues with understanding sequential images in comics: How do we comprehend events in a visual sequence that we don’t see? cambridge.org/core/journals/…
I'm betting this is going to be great—and merciless. Owen Kline was at a Rocketship event I did in Brooklyn (2015?) and he definitely knew his stuff when it came to comics; especially underground comix.
When playing an old movie connections board game, we always call AWAKENINGS "wak nin" (broken movie marquee long ago), FATAL ATTRACTION is "Boil the Bunny," SHAME is "Michael Fassbender's Penis," and Demi Moore is "Half-Moore."
What are your friends & family game night memes?
The legendary Tom Palmer has passed away. Incredible talent, and his artistry defined Marvel's Avengers for decades. Seventies, eighties, nineties--he was there, leading the way.
Deepest condolences to his friends and family.
