“In my twenties, I had a lot of existential angst about who I was and who I wanted other people to see me as,” says the writer of one of the coolest new independent comic-books out there. “That conflict externalized in another character that eventually evolved to be  Paradox Girl…”

A diary kept by the late actor Heath Ledger while he was preparing to play The Joker in the classic 2008 Batman film, ‘The Dark Knight’, has excited a lot interest among fans recently.

Some websites have been reporting that the diary video is from a soon-to-be-released docu-film called ‘Heath Ledger: Too Young to Die’; it isn’t. It’s actually from an existing episode of a German documentary ‘Liebling der Götter’, from 2012.

When I was a little kid, I remember I used to draw Darth Vader, Boba Fett and the Imperial Tie-Fighters compulsively.
Whenever I had a spare bit of paper or whenever my mind wandered, I would end up doodling variations of those images. I also drew (and coloured in) a few fanboy, speculative comic-book covers; one with Fett crawling out of the Sarlaac pit and another of the Ewok Wicket.

No, really – there is a war going on inside your body. ‘As a pre-med student at NYU, I took an endocrinology course and became fascinated by how cells within our bodies communicate with each other,’ says ‘Bio-Wars creator, Gabriel Shaoolian. ‘I started to see the body as a bio-cosmos all unto itself. A micro-universe, in which incredible battles for existence and the struggle to survive constantly take place…’
‘Rather than going to medical school,’ he explains, ‘I decided to pursue Biowars ‘.
