Beers I have drunk in the last month by Dan Haddigan
Now I’m sure this is a coincidence, but recently I’ve noticed that there’s been a proliferation of six packs for under $5. I first took notice when the beer store near my studio started selling three different brands for a five spot, and soon enough I found other places with even cheaper beer. It’s only logical that I drank every one I could find and wrote about them. My only criteria for inclusion is that the beer must cost less than $1 for a standard 12 ounce can. Onto the cheap beer roundup: Continue reading
There’s a reason I don’t like to go on Facebook. There is also a reason that I still have a Facebook account. Continue reading
In February, the weather is shit and the sports are even worse in the wake of a baseball and football-less foreseeable future. However, it is our duty as Americans to persevere through the madness and make questionable financial decisions based on a hunch that Wichita State is due for a road win. I will try and sort through what I’ve ascertained by drinking heavily and watching sports this past week. Continue reading
Beers I have drunk in the past month by Dan Haddigan
We Northeasterners get a bad rap sometimes – when you think of cities with rude people, the names Philadelphia, New York, and Boston come to mind – but at least we’re up front about it here. Now, I’m generalizing here, but Californians have mastered the art of subtle rudeness, undercover assholishness, and too-cool smugness all under the guise that they’re chill and laid back. I think it’s the relaxed attitude that they’re well known for that makes them well suited to champion the most insulting of non-insults, the inconspicuous affront. My friends and I call this particular move the “cool guy”, the “big league” or most commonly, the “big boy”. Continue reading
Here’s a fun game: try writing a description every month for a comics that defy description. Michael Olivo’s latest mind-bender is… well, it’s here and it’s fucking cool so just leave it at that, OK? Make up your own damn mind about it, sheesh. Continue reading
People who look similar to my artwork, according to google images. I’m on the left!
If you’ve spent more than 30 seconds on dirt is dirt, you’d know that we love our alcohol. So when we hear an uplifting story about how one artist found salvation through the power of booze, naturally we’re all over it. After a “complete failure” of a college education in Photography (his words, not ours!) New Jersey artist Matt Crabe re-discovered his passion for drawing after drawing on bar napkins while spending “a few years” as an “overweight alcoholic”. Continue reading
Listen up, punks – Michael Olivo’s Fake Blood promises that “what is fake will… soon be real” so read it or else. I think it involves a detective and some really big tomatos… either way it’s another action-packed trip from our resident comics-slinger. As always, you can check him out at michaelolivo.com Continue reading

The Soda Shop is a Savannah, GA based design and print shop, with “an old-school flare” . Aesthetics aside (check out their awesome, 50′s throwback gallery/store front on their website) they live up to the claim by offering hand stitched book binding and letter press printing as well as a full host of more contemporary services.
