more crime...





tumblring down...

I've started a second blog, Negative Pleasure 2, on Tumblr. The new Negative Pleasure is for photos and cool things I find on the internet. This blog, the original Negative Pleasure, will remain the same, featuring new content, scans and writing. Speaking of which, I'll be writing again soon. Promise. For real.

In the meantime, some crime novels...






The last one isn't particularly vintage, but what a title! I believe they made a film out of it as well...

the spirit 15...

Here's the penultimate issue of Warren's THE SPIRIT (and the last one I own). After issue sixteen, Kitchen Sink took over the series (with contributions from Will Eisner again). I'll be posting some of those soon, though I may take a break from the Spirit for a few days after this to post some more paperback covers. There will eventually be some more in-depth content on Negative Pleasure again, soon I hope, but for a minute I'm sort of content to chill and just post some cool images for y'all.
Anyway, SPIRIT #15. The "Matua" story, by the way, predates Godzilla (with similar imagery) by several years...
