The catchall category for everything. If you're not sure where it goes, it probably goes here. Literally anything not covered by a real topic.

Comics, graphic novels, manga: anything that involves sequential illustrated storytelling.


Sportsball! Athletic orthogames like football, hockey, baseball, basketball, F1, etc...

Art you have created wish to discuss from an artistic perspective. Illustrations, crafts, models: whatever!


Wanna start a fight? Argue in bad faith? Be an insufferable pedant? Let's roll.
