Mike Carey Interview

Liverpool's Finest
Garrett Faber
Mike Carey

Mike Carey is one of Liverpool's finest. He's a devoted husband and father who worked as a teacher for 15 years. So, where does he get this massive imagination? With such a seemingly normal life, from what recesses of his mind does he pull these fantastically imaginative tales of the strange and unusual? After all, this is the guy who gave Lucifer a voice and took the reigns of the  character after Neil Gaiman -- a tough act to follow -- but Carey's run on Lucifer garnered him a Eisner Award nomination.

ESPN Story On Real Fight Clubs

Here's a video story did on real fight clubs.  It chronicles a group of Sillicone Valley workers who meet regularly to do you know what.  Prepare though: This isn't what you'd immediately imagine in your head when you hear 'fight club' and think of the movie.  I dare say, this looks a little ridiculous.

Michael Ian Black and Michael Showalter

The air in the night sent a tingling sensation through my spine, with the hairs on my arms and legs standing straight up like obedient soldiers. An hour before the show, I heard the car engine of my friend thumping as the car swerved through downtown streets the size of anorexic tunnels. We parked next to a dumpster and handed a stranger a five dollar bill, hoping he was authentic and not just some bum trying to score some drug money. There was a small line of fifteen people outside of the venue. Is this it?
