thedemented1 asked: what comic/graphic novel is your most prized possession in your collection? (if you have a comics collection)

jl8comic:

Hm. That’s a tough one.

Blankets by Craig Thompson is certainly up there. I read that pretty regularly.

Bone: The One Volume Edition by Jeff Smith would be a contender, as well.

Kingdom Come (Absolute Edition) by Mark Waid and Alex Ross.

Peter Parker: Spider-Man #75 by Mackie/Romita, Jr./Hannah is a single issue that I love pretty heavily.

Yeah, that’s tough. I have so many.

What To Know About The Net Neutrality Ruling"Without a net neutrality requirement, service providers could turn internet connections into a toll road, charging companies like Netflix or Google extra money to deliver their packets with a higher priority than others. This, in turn, could also slow down the loading of sites that couldn’t or refused to pay. The biggest fear is a "cable-ization" of the internet, where certain internet providers only provide service to certain sites, in much the way that cable channels are packaged and sold separately."Learn more from Popular Science. 

Forgive me for posting political things instead of art, but the apparent end of net neutrality is probably something online artists and their creative ilk ought to at least be aware of (if not irate about).  While I don’t mean to be hyperbolic (immediate sweeping changes aren’t likely) there’s some worrisome potential here for major ISPs to bleed parti-colored shades of dreadful all over the free and open internet as we know it.  For instance, as a denizen of a non-neutral internet, access to certain sites and services could be cut off or limited by your provider, depending on what sort of access package you’re willing to pay for.  As a freelancer, independent innovator, or start up entrepreneur, you could be left in the lurch with limited traffic if you aren’t in a position to pay providers to grant their customers free, open access to your site (as large online corporate entities might be expected to do).It might not make all or any difference, but if the vaporization of net neutrality doesn’t sit well with you, consider petitioning the FCC to fix its error and reinstate it correctly this time.

Seriously. I think this is fairly important.

Having a rough time getting a drawing looking how I want it, so I took a break to draw something more familiar.
