They also gave us a time frame for when the rest of the Legendaries would see the world. Articuno has been out since the 22nd and saw its last day yesterday on the 31st of July. But when one door closes, another opens. With Articuno gone, Moltres will take his place from [Read more…]

Alt Control Delete Success!

In early October, Ramon Govea and crew launched the Kickstarter to their comic Alt Control Delete and just within a few days of launch, they were 101% funded and over the last few days that’s actually reached 115% for a grand total of almost $4,000 raised on Kickstarter! They are now currently well over $4000 with 80 backers and still have 14 days to go but, although they are already funded, it doesn’t mean there aren’t fun stretch goals you can help them reach. Check out their Kickstarter here!
