Some—the most perplexing—are for bizarre and sexual-looking contraptions selling for minus four dollars on Wish. And some—the ones that have actually caused me to click through and sample that tasty…

So About That Eisner Award

A moment after closing Graeme McMillan’s article in The Hollywood Reporter detailing the shadow cast by irregularities in this year’s Eisner Awards voting process, I received a notification that a new email had arrived. “Hi Wendy and gang,” it began, and proceeded to inform me of plans for tonight’s virtual Eisner Awards ceremony, culminating in…
