For years I knew of Donald Glover either as actor/comedian in Derrick Comedy, Mystery Team, as Troy from COMMUNITY, or as one of the writers of 30 ROCK, and for the past year or 2 I’ve known him as Hip Hop artist CHILDISH GAMBINO.

RetroPop: Grim_Noir Revisits George Alec Effinger and The Audran Sequence, 30 Years Later…

George Alec Effinger should have been a god among Geeks.

Title: Flash #12
Writer: Geoff Johns

Well, it’s here! The end of an era. That’s not right. The end of a ..hiccup? Yeah, that’s more appropriate. Geoff John’s new Flash title is already over, after 12 issues (resisting urge to make Flash In The Pan joke) and anyone …
