Like so many others, I first came across Ricky Brigante's work on his now-legendary Inside the Magic site some years ago, although it was only recently that we managed to speak for the first time, when collaborating on an article.

It was through this experience that Dr. Radley's Nightmare...

Super!, a brand-new, Kickstarter-backed indie comic book, is all over the place.

(1) Comments | Posted October 22, 2013 | 12:55 PM

He even got...
