“List of Bands That Must Stop Making Music and Why,” by John Meyers

Aug 20th, 2017 | By

I think it was a Halloween concert
in the nineties, when they were already old
TV cameras picked up a slice of
Gene Simmons’ ass cheek
visible though a stylish hole in his leather pants
It looked like what you see when
you first open a can of spam

“Tinged,” by Alison McBain

Aug 20th, 2017 | By

I hate to argue with you,
but I must say the sky is not blue.
It is studded by blemishes—
clouds smeared by the oily effervescence
of sunrises, sunsets,
bisected by rainbows,
vivisected by the worm-trails of airplanes.

the instructions on Black Cat firecrackers:
Light fuse and retire quickly.

I realized that it was August but I had only done one summer-themed comic, and that comic wasn’t even uploaded in the summer. So to rectify that, here’s a comic about the pool! I don’t really get to enjoy the pool these days. I have so many kids that a trip to the pool is really me playing lifeguard for several hours while one or more children cling to me like soggy monkeys. But I’m glad folks like Winslow are able to enjoy themselves, even though his enjoyment involves ruining the pool for everyone else.

“Evidence That Our Timeline Has Been Tampered With,” by Lee Blevins

An early homo sapien sapiens skeleton was found in a cave in Luxembourg clutching a small rectangular device with a smooth dark screen. It was wrapped, quite literally, in the skin of an otter.

An ancient Egyptian mummified in one of the more modest pyramids was dissected by the British Museum in 1924. The mummy had a tattoo of a butterfly on her lower back.

The title of today’s Ben & Winslow comic probably brings to mind a song. Are you thinking of a song? A song about moonmen?
