Today on the site:

We will continue to post tributes to the late Spain Rodriguez as they come in. And Tucker, Abhay and Nate bring an extra-long version of the column. Tucker has many comics reviews and Abhay explains Grant Morrison for the un- (or just under-) initiated.

My favorite part of the “Grant Morrison Vs. The Word Aspiring” section was Morrison declaring, “I was even a guest on panels at comics conventions”, referring to a UK comic convention that took place somewhere between 1979 and 1982. We’ve all lived long enough where admitting you attended a comic convention in the UK between 1979 and 1982 is a strategy for winning an argument, and not character evidence being used against someone accused of interfering with preschoolers. Bam Pow.
