No one anywhere says that black lives are the only ones who matter, so please rethink responding to "Black Lives Matter" with "All Lives Matter." Of course they do, but black lives are the ones being taken from us with no level of punishment to their killers. I'm no anarchist (okay, just a little) but police in America are operating with a code of protection that makes sure the only cops who get punished are the ones who speak up against other cops.

Imagine bullying in schools, then imagine the bullies themselves are the only ones who can stop the bullying, and the teachers are on the bullies' side.

I live in St Louis, the flashpoint of the current state of protest and unrest, and I know that what is reported in popular media is almost never the whole or fair truth, sided to the established authority and vilifying the dead. You can be sure the same is true everywhere else. I encourage everyone to learn more, seek alternative media, especially accounts of people who were there, including hours and hours of video taken before, during, and after protests.

The subject is uncomfortable, and the narrative is easier to paint each victim as deserving of their end, or not worthy enough of living, but it's a mistake not to see the collective actions of police as a norm of the national culture. The victims' character flaws and questionable actions have been brought to the fore in an attempt to make them less sympathetic. While some may not be exemplary citizens, do we allow only exemplary citizens to live?

The value of our characters are not what should determine whether we deserve to live, not to be shot down because of rage or racist fear. Sure, all lives matter, including black lives, which is what too many people both in and out of power don't seem to believe. That's why we say it. That's why it's important. That's why they march.

I'm not Michael Brown, but I'm doing my best not to be Darren Wilson.

This page was supposed to go live on Monday, but I forgot to post it because I was laughing at St Louis' reaction to four inches of snow.

The fabulous one in the picture up there is fantastic friend of the comic Nicole, and you might recognize her as a club owner from the tour in Book Four! Ain't she great? The answer is she is.

I don't remember ever posting this before, apologies if I have. This was done several years ago, either during Bishop Street as an off-site extra. For everyone sending me worried messages about Wiley, as well as people still waxing nostalgic for Mulligan's hat.

Or Michelle's hair.

You've gotta think Lee is pretty good at poker.

Yes! Book Six has a launch date, and it's March 30th! Thank you deeply to everyone who's sent encouragement and good thoughts, and you know, thanks also to the folks who've kept the negativity and unhelpful comments to themselves. I'm not even being facetious, it's appreciated. Some of the messages I've been sent, through comments on the News post, Facecult messages, Tweeties, and emails. Thanks.

We're nearly finished the first draft script, and I should be making pages again in early February. More on that as it develops, and maybe even some sneak peekery. Also, guest comic Snapshots will be preceding the beginning of Book Six, and I really like what I've seen so far. Look forward to it!

ALSO! More information on the events where we'll be appearing this season, links below! There will be more to come as their confirmed. Come out to say hi!

A little misandry from me to whomever it may apply. I'm not calling anyone in particular, but if you hear your name...

I'm not sure at this point how many people in my sphere of influence are an active problem in the "But I'm A Nice Guy" camp, though, so maybe this is just a laugh for those who aren't. Really, though, if you're a guy, or a white people, or heterosexual, or Christian, and you hear someone talking about your particular group, instead of jumping to defend your "side" I would ask you to stop, listen, think, consider, ask for more details, and allow for the possibility that they're saying it for reasons other than hating you.

If you're confused about what's going on with the updates, check our News section.

@Onyxlight: Strangely, of all the long-form projects I've developed, the only two that have made it into comic form so far are also the only ones that feature chess in them. Maybe if I start featuring chess in all of them, they'll all get made!
