Chester 5000 XYV on io9

Today at io9, I highlight Jess Fink's Chester 5000 XYV, and apparently break the Internet with the promise of Victorian robot porn. Oops.

And now for a moment of shameless self-promotion...

For anyone wondering why I haven't been updating much lately, it's because most of my non-day job, non-freelancer cycles have been occupied with this puppy: The Comic Book Guide to the Mission. It's a comics anthology about San Francisco's Mission District featuring a number of extremely talented people (including a few Bay Area-based webcomickers) that I have been collecting and editing for the past year -- and is now finally available!

If you're in the Bay Area, I encourage you to check out The Comic Book Guide to the Mission at your local retailer. Other folks can purchase them directly from me at Skoda Man Press. The book is also being distributed through Last Gasp if you know a retailer (or are a retailer) who might be interested in carrying the book.

Love that cover? Me too. It's by Chuck Whelon of Pewfell fame.

Featuring: Sean Chiki (Wunderkammer), Jamaica Dyer (Weird Fishes), Andrew Farago (The Cartoon Art Museum, William Bazillion), Shaenon K. Garrity (Narbonic, Skin Horse), Justin Hall (All Thumbs Press, True Travel Tales, Glamazonia), Mario Hernandez (Love and Rockets, Citizen Rex), Greg Hinkle, Nomi Kane (Chutzpah!), Jonas Madden-Connor (Ochre Ellipse), Paul Madonna (All Over Coffee), Omar Mamoon (The Mission: Taco), Amy Martin (Bachelor Girl, The Single Girls), John Mathis, Aindrila Mukhopadhyay, Roman Muradov (Sad Comics), Jen Oaks, Ariel Schrag (Potential, Likewise, Ariel and Kevin Invade Everything), Matt Stewart (The French Revolution), Alfred Twu (First Cultural Industries), Dan V. (American Objects), Geoff Vasile (Trackrabbit), Jeff Walker, Mike White (Amity Blamity), Clint Woods (Fernetiquette), and Rick Worley (A Waste of Time).
