Midtown Bloggerinos! Raph here, having just left Toy Fair. What’s Toy Fair you ask? It’s a show where the toymakers of the world meet and show off their wares to the retailers of the world. It’s not just action figures though: statues, play sets, kids’ toys, accessories and dolls, board games and so much more!

Bloggerinos! Raph here, this time with an interview with Ed Brisson, writer of my favorite new miniseries Comeback. Comeback is published by Image Comics and has a simple premise: in the recent future, there’s a company that will save someone you love from death, for a steep price. What would you pay to save someone you loved? What are the consequences when the mission goes wrong? The series is answering those questions in an amazingly awesome way.
