Calvin & Hobbes perfectly sums up the creative process.
Here’s a Poe project from the Re-Animator team which I think everybody should help make happen. I’ve also read that the Poe museum (or house, I forget the name) is having trouble funding operations… shouldn’t they just make the local football team (Ravens) pay for a little real culture? Ah well…

"War in a heartbeat
I declare war on so-called civilization
World trade globalization
War on ambassadors of pretense
War on MTV and CNN
MacDonald’s, Walt Disney, and Bethlehem
On Christina, Britney, and Eminem
I declare war on the world of anti-choice
On violent unilaterality
On the amassment of murderous high-tech toys
And all crimes against humanity
War on the moral majority
On corporate dot com imperialism
On mindlessly bumbling stupidity
And police-state terrorism
World War Three
Be all that you can be”
—KMFDM, “WWIII” (excerpt)
Check out this recently revisited and wonderful art for Frank Herbert’s masterpiece, Dune. In all of fiction, I am not sure anything surpasses it for world-building and depth. Barnes and Noble recently added it to their hardcover classics selection, and I had to have it. Love that universe.
