Buildings on the moon.

London-based architects Foster + Partners have revealed plans to print 3D structures on the moon in partnership with the European Space Agency. The technology will allow the team to use local materials on the moon as a building material, meaning they can print entire buildings from scratch. According to Foster + Partners, the idea of expanding to build lunar habitats could be realistic in the next few years, using dome designs to shield inhabitants from micro-meteoroids and space radiation.
The 3D printer itself will have an array of nozzles on a 6 meter frame, each of which will spray binding solution onto the sand-like material, building up structures one tiny layer at a time. “First, we needed to mix the simulated lunar material with magnesium oxide. This turns it into ‘paper’ we can print with,’ explains monolite founder Enrico Dini. “Then for our structural ‘ink’ we apply a binding salt which converts material to a stone-like solid. Our current printer builds at a rate of around 2 m per hour, while our next-generation design should attain 3.5 meters per hour, completing an entire building in a week.”

corporate vs indie take 300,137

When people complain about the sales of indie comics at comic shops it’s like you spent your life at the local McDonalds and then decided you really like their salad and are super frustrated that it doesn’t sell better. These stores, by and large and the majority of people who’ve gone to them for all of my life and probably all of yours, are there for superhero comics (with some exceptions). The content created outside of those parameters doesn’t sell as well to those people because THAT ISN’T WHAT THEY’RE THERE FOR. They went to a burger place. They don’t want your salad.

When I was a teenager, at some point I was less interested in the band that played the local Arena and started paying attention to smaller, local bands. Bands that would surprise me. They didn’t carry those things at the music chain at the mall. Shaking my fist at them again and again over 100 years wasn’t going to change that.

Those bands had to do more work to get onto your radar. They had to tour. They had to do the rounds.

And hey, you know what? So do you.

HURRICANE

Gotten a lot of lovely notes from people about the storm that hit the NY area a couple days ago. For anyone who’s curious: we came through ok. Power went out pretty early into the storm and we’re still unfortunately in the dark, but our neighborhood got off really easy relative to all the other areas near the Hudson river which have seen some really shocking damage.

If you’d like to help: Text REDCROSS to 90999 to give $10 to American Red Cross Disaster Relief.

Or if you’re generous enough to make a larger donation, please click HERE to help out.

My best to everyone.

Batman-ish: What Comic-Book Movies are Missing

The inside of my head is terrible

I’m in Brazil, at a combination kebab/autobody shop. At the recommendation of Rafael Grampá, I order the shrimp with the green sauce. The guy calls out the price, over 40 bucks. When the other guy hears my accent, he looks at his watch, mutters something about the time of day and tries to add a couple bucks. I give him a speech about the value of a man’s word.

The moral here, more than the fact that my dreams are ridiculous, is that even my subconscious is insufferable.

the value of your name

COMICS: I know a lot of you have accepted B rates and C rates for works these days as money gets tight everywhere, you’ve taken less money for the same or even more work. What I’ve also seen, though, is this: a professional says: you’re paying X percent of my rate, you’ll get X percent of my performance.

THIS IS A MISTAKE.

Where you measure the value of your time, you should be measuring the value of your NAME. Because the reader doesn’t know what you got paid or if you did, or anything at all but whether or not they liked what they saw. Because THEY didn’t pay less. The book doesn’t come with a sticker asking the reader to excuse the limitations of budget. The reader paid the same amount, most likely… for the costliest production or for one that was done for free. And when they put it down they’re hopefully going to remember your name and remember it well. You either gave THEM their money’s worth or you didn’t.

We’re all only as good as our word. When you agree to do something, for 5 cents or a million dollars, you should agree to do it well or you’re not helping anyone out, least of all your own name.
