Speaking of Panthea Obscura, congratulations to Jason Buddenhagen who won my Panthea Obscura contest over at Cosmic Book News (http://www.cosmicbooknews.com)! He correctly identified the “god-name” of Kyle Dogg - “Fear-Eater”! He's won the autographed Special Edition of Panthea Obscura #2 that I put together for 2PiCon in 2007.

I've just put together a magazine, too – Glow-in-the-Dark Radio Magazine! Issue One is on sale now over at http://glowinthedarkradio.com. My hope is to expand the number of contributors and advertisers to increase the variety of the offerings inside and to reduce the cover price of the magazine as time goes on. For now, it serves as a $5 sampler of my work (99 cent download!). The magazine is loaded with my writing and illustrations. It even includes a grayscale version of the first issue of Panthea Obscura. The first two chapters of Vatican Assassin are in it as well. The first five of my Mike Luoma's Making It Up! Columns from Cosmic Book News have been synthesized down into one long piece on the making of “Holy Shit” and “Panthea Obscura #1”, and I've also included “Holy Shit: The Second Coming!” a short comic sequel to my “Holy Shit: Or... Pat Robertson Is The Anti-Christ”. It's all just five dollars or ninety-nine cents to download and it's on sale now, links at http://glowinthedarkradio.com.

That's what's happening!
