Hot Topic is known amongst artist groups as one of the worst offenders of art theft in U.S. retailers. I know artists are important to What Pumpkin, and I’d imagine multiple cases of art theft would be a very big deal. The most well-known of the cases were stolen fan art from independent artists, which is the same demographic the Design Contest was aimed to.  I’m an artist myself and I wouldn’t want to support a store that steals from my peers.

The people running Hot Topic have zero respect to artists and to copyright law. They’ve been ripping-off independent artists’ storefronts, and continue do so. The whole company really should have been shut down long ago.

If you support artists, independent, fan artist, or any kind, you should oppose Hot Topic and MSPA’s association with them!

Tell What Pumpkin to kick Hot Topic out of the Design contest RIGHT NOW.

We have so little time left to stop this please tell them that it is completely unacceptable to do any sort of business with petty art thieves.

Even if you don’t know what to say, or if you think it would compromise the contestants; It won’t. Just please voice your thoughts in anyway you can put them. Don’t let Hot Topic get a dime out of Homestuck.

Well shit… I guess I’m avoiding HT for good now.




A little behind the scenes look of the early stages of Green Lantern the Animated Series.

My eternal gratitude to everyone who helped prove the doubters wrong.

Sadly, this is a testament to why so much entertainment (of all genres and media) is pablum, and we should be appreciative and thankful when something good gets made at all!



Want Young Justice to continue in some way. Digital comics is probably the least expensive and most realistic chance of telling more stories set in the Earth-16 universe. Especially given that Greg Weisman’s current future has him working on Star Wars: Rebels.  But working on a digital comic along with that doesn’t require as much attention from  someone as Young Justice as an animated series would IF it somehow came back for more seasons.  There’s little to no chance that Greg Weisman would be able to work on Young Justice as an animated series if the show somehow came back in animation.

Continuing the show in digital comic form is one of the few mediums out there that has a realistic shot of retaining 1 of Young Justice’s original creators. Not to mention being the least expensive.

While the number of people that have signed might be relatively small at the moment, I believe that has more to do with the fact that not many Young Justice fans know about this as a possible opportunity.

Yes, petitions don’t have the best reputations around.  But honestly, what have you got to lose by signing it anyways? Also a petition based on asking for a digital comic allegedly might not NEED as many numbers as a petition for wanting the show back. (Which would also be more expensive).

I also feel a realistic 1st goal for this is to at least show there’s interest in this.  Then somewhere down the road, DC MIGHT notice the interest and try to capitalize on an opportunity.

Again what have you got to lose by signing?

I loathe Feminism as well but her attacks on video games are trite. Bitch needs to fall back.

Err… feminism isn’t a bad thing. It’s when people like Anita became the face for such a movement that it’s perceived as such and unfortunately becomes the face for it.

Real feminists aren’t like Anita.
