By Crom! is my joke-a-panel autobiographical comic featuring life advice and spiritual guidance from Conan the Barbarian. It ran from January 2012 to May 2014, and is collected in two books, The Collected By Crom! and Full Colour Cromulence. You can read the archives on WealdComics.com, and grab the books in print and in PDF.

By Crom! will be tabling with Weald Comics at TCAF, VanCAF, TAAFI and possibly FanExpo Toronto!

Rachel Kahn’s By Crom! series isn’t only funny, though it is funny, it is also charming and comforting and challenging, panel by panel, in great ways. Get thee this comic.

Good morning from the Cascade-Sisiyou National Monument managed by BLM Oregon/Washington
The Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument was established by presidential proclamation on June 9, 2000 in recognition of its remarkable ecology and to protect a diverse range of biological, geological, aquatic, archeological, and historic objects. The Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument, a part of the BLM’s National Conservation Lands, is the first monument set aside solely for the preservation of biodiversity. Due to several complex biological and geological factors and processes operating simultaneously, the monument contains an unusually high variety of species in a geographically small area.

Gladiator figurine of bone or ivory
Roman Britain, 1st-2nd century ADFrom Lexden, Colchester
This figurine depicts a gladiator of the heavily-armedmurmillo class. Naked, but for a loin cloth and reinforced belt, he is armed with a large visored helmet, a short sword, a curved rectangular shield, metal greaves to protect his legs, and a heavy guard on his sword arm. Appropriately, a scene of gladiatorial combat is carved on the shield.
These gladiators were often matched with the retiariuswho carried only a net and trident. A pairing like this was intended to produce an entertaining contest between the lightly-armed, but highly manouevrable retiarius and the heavily-armed but less mobile secutor.

Highland, by Leo Black

Hi folks! So I was visiting a friend in Denver when this post went up on the Heroine’s Blog, so I’m only just now getting the chance to share it. Thanks for your patience!

I deeply appreciate that Leo made his highland heroine every bit as well-protected and non-sexualized as the highland bruiser there with her. Like her companion, our lass has an air of strength and confidence. She comes across as a genuinely competent character, made tough and smart by hard work and the high mountain winters.
