The embalming process has been around for ages: The Egyptians, ancient Ethiopian tribes, and aboriginal inhabitants of the Canary Islands back in 900 BC were all early practitioners of preserving their dead. Though the methods of the past were crude at best, the “art” of embalming has become a less disturbing job (emphasis on less), and while we don’t remove the brain and stuff the skull with resin as was done in ancient Egypt—it’s still a pretty gross process to think about. That being said, this...
In 1973's Spiderman Universe Earth 616, Gwen Stacy dies in the infamous clash between Spider Man and Green Goblin. You would think that 40 years of comic book decay means the iconic character looks too ghastly to resurface, but that isn’t what writer Jason Latour and artists Robbi Rodriguez and Rico Renzi decided.  Despite being nervous about touching long-gone Gwen, Latour--who grew up idolizing white-male superheroes--realized that if she could escape her death, then she could truly become anything.

Born Stéphanie Sokolinski in Bordeaux, France, today SoKo lives in California and is openly bisexual, vegan, and straight edge.  Her confessional, lo-fi indie rock has earned her...
It seems wrong to say that any of these lady bands are out to pay tribute to anyone; they rock so hard on their own. But bands like Lez Zeppelin and Vag Halen are doing so much more than covering old faves—they’re out to take on the male dominated world of rock and roll, one metal band at a time. Lez Zeppelin  Founded in 2004 by lead guitarist Steph Paynes, Lez Zeppelin thinks of themselves as a “she-incarnation” rather than a tribute band. They have recorded albums...
