New TV Ads now up on YouTube!

Check out our new TV ads, now posted at, by clicking HERE!

The ads were produced by the fine folks at Adams Digital Media. If you're looking to do a TV commercial for your business, I recommend their services.

On one of the ads, we borrowed some images from the very cool postcard book from Denis Kitchen Publishing called "READING COMICS". The postcard book makes a nice stocking stuffer (hint, hint). The other new TV spot features some young members of Flying Colors' Faithful. Thanks for "pitching" in and helping, everyone.

I've Got a Forum!

As many of you know, for the last ten years, I've been moonlighting as a columnist for for a trade magazine called Comics & Gamer Retailer, published by the same fine folk who produce the venerable Comics Buyer's Guide.

Well, all good things must come to an end, and C&GR is doing just that. However, my publishers recently opened forums (fora?) for me and some of the magazine's other columnists. I want to invite you to Joe Field's Big Picture forum by clicking HERE!.

I'd love to get your feedback there.

More from Renee Montoya's Dossier

Word has spread through the investigative comics' community that several facsimiles of Renee Montoya's (aka The Question) journal have been leaked to the public via sites like this one.

From what I've see online, there are some differences between the copies of the journal and the artifacts contained within the journal. And from what I've learned, this is NOT a publicity gimmick sponsored by DC Comics, but rather it's the careful dissemination of clues to a deepening mystery from writer Greg Rucka.

Want to get to the bottom of this? Then pick up 52 AFTERMATH: THE CRIME BIBLE issues 1 and 2 now at Flying Colors Comics.

There is always a Question remaining to be answered.
