Hey guys/gals, just wanted to take a few and drop some updates. As most of you know we attended the A.C.E this past weekend in Albuquerque. In keeping with the flow of our last couple of shows we fortunately had another strong showing. We went in with a few new prints and sold out by the middle of day two (first time completely selling out). Once again original art commissions were through the roof. Look forward to applying some of the great ideas and techniques learned at the last two shows to future cons.
It's back to work for the Urban Myth Studios clan. New issues of Kause of Death, Red Bratva, and Robin Hood Steampunk are in the works. We've got new stories and collaborations in the works for Urban Myth Presents, and a brand spanking new regular series in Starzy right around the corner (give or take a corner or two lol).
Thanks for your patience and again thanks for all your support.
p.s. check out our blog: urbanmythstudios.blogspot.com/
Saying NO to Permanent Global WAR, say yes to FREEDOM:
"Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive."
-C. S. Lewis
"Congress must protect the American people from the over-reach of any Chief Executive who is enamored with unilateralism, pre-emption, first strike and the power to prosecute war without Constitutional or statutory proscriptions. Permanent, global war is not the answer. It will not increase our national security. Far from ridding the world of terrorism, it will become a terrorist recruitment program."
- Dennis Kucinich
"Allow the President to invade a neighboring nation, whenever he shall deem it necessary to repel an invasion, and you allow him to do so, whenever he may choose to say he deems it necessary for such purpose and you allow him to make war at pleasure. Study to see if you can fix any limit to his power in this respect, after you have given him so much as you propose. If, today, he should choose to say he thinks it necessary to invade Canada, to prevent the British from invading us, how could you stop him? You may say to him, "I see no probability of the British invading us" but he will say to you "be silent; I see it, if you don't." The provision of the Constitution giving the war-making power to Congress, was dictated, as I understand it, by the following reasons: Kings had always been involving and impoverishing their people in wars, pretending generally, if not always, that the good of the people was the object. This, our Convention understood to be the most oppressive of all Kingly oppressions; and they resolved to so frame the Constitution that no one man should hold the power of bringing this oppression upon us."
- Abraham Lincoln
"I see the whole thing as a mess, and I think that we are going to be in Pakistan," he said. "I think that's the next occupation and I fear it. I think it's ridiculous, and I think our foreign policy is such that we don't need to be doing this."
- Ron Paul
"To preserve [the] independence [of the people,] we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our election between economy and liberty, or profusion and servitude.If we run into such debts as that we must be taxed in our meat and in our drink, in our necessaries and our comforts, in our labors and our amusements, for our callings and our creeds, as the people of England are, our people, like them, must come to labor sixteen hours in the twenty-four, give the earnings of fifteen of these to the government for their debts and daily expenses, and the sixteenth being insufficient to afford us bread, we must live, as they now do, on oatmeal and potatoes, have no time to think, no means of calling the mismanagers to account, but be glad to obtain subsistence by hiring ourselves to rivet their chains on the necks of our fellow-sufferers."
