He is the forgotten brother, the lost son. His is a story of risk without reward. Of grubby, broken second controllers. You can play, they say, but not on the good one. That one is reserved for your betters. Stay in the back. Shut up. Stop complaining. Struggling, fighting against the madness in the world around him, only to return to a cold, empty bed. For him, the princess will always be in another castle.

Game Icons. A series of smaller, highly focused books celebrating legendary icons from gaming.
2013 marks a very special birthday for a very special brother, and we thought it was only right we helped Luigi celebrate the amazing year he has had with our first icon book. We asked 32 artists to submit work along this theme, with only one restriction-it must work in Luigi's iconic colors.
The outcome? A miniature art gallery of everything 'weegee', printed in stunning green and blue.

Villipede Publications' first horror and dark speculative fiction anthology, Darkness Ad Infinitum, will tenderly caress your amygdalae and viciously twist your imagination. With fifteen short stories and four poems from both established and upcoming authors, this haunting collection will force readers to reevaluate their thoughts on what darkness really is: something we're all born of yet perpetually trying to flee; a malevolent force that desires our servitude or destruction-or something that simply wishes to lock us in its cold, scaly, fathomless grip. Or perhaps, even, it's an asylum for our jittery minds and confused hearts-a place of solace where humans may patiently inspect their primal natures and desires . . . a place where the barriers between monster and man begin to shift and break down.
The authors' origins span the breadth of the globe: the UK, Greece, Australia, Sweden, the US-and their stories are just as diverse. While the styles and subject matter of the stories may differ greatly, what is consistent is the dedication each author has harnessed to create unique fiction and scenarios of bewitching caliber.
This October, holding Darkness Ad Infinitum in your hands, you may find yourself faced with a simple ultimatum: Do you turn around and embrace the darkness of your own free will . . . or will it embrace you first?
I've been insanely prepping for New York Comic Con, so I was only able to take on one custom project as of recent, and boy, was it a cheesy one. The terrific creator of UHOH Toys, Aaron, asked me to crochet a burger couple for his friends' wedding. Since burgers are near and dear to me (health and mind-wise), I was thrilled with the idea of two burgers in love.
