By now, the cycle is familiar. One morning the news will light up with reports of a lone gunman wreaking havoc in a public place or a loved one’s home. For days, left-wing politicians and grieving families will plead for common sense gun control legislation, even as conservatives and NRA reps make their usual “gun’s don’t kill people, people do” stump speeches. And then, as quickly as the tragedy entered the public consciousness, it falls off the radar, forgotten until the next mass shooting occurs. According to a new interactive report from Everytown for Gun Safety, Americans have experienced about two mass shootings (involving four or more deaths) each month since January 2009. The report, which relies on FBI data and media reports from the last four years, exposes alarming trends in US gun violence. Here are some of the most striking statistics: 42% of mass shooters possessed their guns illegally because they were felons, domestic abusers, or were otherwise prohibited under federal law from having guns.

So…JL8 has been nominated for a Harvey Award for "Best Online Comics Work."
I’m pretty effectively at a loss for words, but I’d like to thank all who nominated the comic. It’s an honor the likes of which I’ve never known. Again, thank you.

You earned it, Yale. Over and over again, you earned it. One of the most deserving nominations of the year.

Listen to the lady, pals.

She makes a good point. Noise on the internet, no matter how strong, never speaks as loud as putting your money where your mouth is. If you like this new Batgirl, if you want them to try more stuff in this direction, buy the book! Post pics of you holding it with a big thumbs up.

Today is Comfort’s mom (Kathi Love's) birthday! She's a super important person our lives - so much so that we couldn't do our job of making comics without her help!

So, for her birthday we’re going out to eat at Red Robin (to get their veggie burgers) and going for a walk in the park. It’s gonna be a nice day!

Apparently our (Comfort and Adam) sketch time at Heroes Con (the Comiciest of all comic shows!) was bogarted by doctorwho this year. Not that we minded - we freaking LOVE The Doctor and all the epicness surrounding him!
