Mike Russell's CulturePulp is a rare example of journalism through comics. Driven by a love of obsessive, slightly geeky subcultures, the Portland-based reporter/cartoonist offers probing answers to such vital questions as Are pirates the new ninjas? What would Tom Jones do? How do you feed a penguin? And which donut shop is best-suited for a voodoo-themed wedding

Wow, good stuff. I don't know how rare it is, but it's enjoyable nonetheless.

Bookmarked. That's great, especially that penguin one. Thanks.

Superb stuff. Love the Aeon Flux piece.

I thought I recognised the style, and a quick google search confirmed that he was responsible for this gem, featuring Yoko Kanno and John Williams, that was originally posted on Fluxblog. Also enjoyed the Aeon Flux comic.

I like his movie reviews, too, especially this aside, "The "Shrek" films, with their "hilarious" of-the-moment nods to "The Matrix" and the like, are aging worse than three-year-old "Daily Show" reruns." Funny stuff. Thanks!

I'm an idiot. I saw that Aeon Flux comic when it first came out, and I didn't even realize it was the same guy. Even more awesome. Double-thanks.

He forgot to mention that Portland band The Decemberists are also somewhat pirate like.

Yeah, CulturePulp is pretty great, and I'd kind of forgotten about it, so thanks for posting it!

It's like she's hitting you over the head with a sock full of "Johnny Quest"! Bwhahhah! Thanks.
