photos of the Middle East’s first snowy winter in decades part (2)
Snow has swept across much of the Middle East, a rare event in this part of the world. Arching south from Turkey, the storm blanketed parts of Syria, Lebanon, Israel and the Palestinian territories. As these photos show, the snow has brought delight to some in the region but has exacerbated the misery of others, particularly those in the vast Syrian refugee camps, highlighting the wide divergence of human experiences across this corner of the globe.
Today is the release of my new comic book series, called The Midas Flesh! YOU GUYS, THIS IS AMAZING.
It’s based on this Dinosaur Comic but is way more awesomer, if you can even believe that. It’s written by me and drawn by Braden Lamb and Shelli Paroline, who you probably know because we’re also the team that creates the Adventure Time comic! And now we are also working together on this new crazy story about King Midas in space, featuring dinosaurs!
You can read the first few pages here, you can read early reviews here or here and NOW THAT YOU ARE ASSUREDLY HOOKED, you can pick the book up at your local comic book shop or direct from the publisher, Boom, who is offering both this first issue or a subscription to the entire eight-issue series, which includes a free print! THE PRINT FEATURES EMILY’S DINOSAUR IN A SPACESUIT, JUST FYI.
Go enjoy the preview and then maybe pick up this book because it is going to be a CRAZY STORY and I can’t wait to share it with YOU.

Another owl, a Pygmy owl, which is the smallest of the European owls, buries itself in the snow in Oulu, Finland. The Pygmy owl was perching high in a pine tree before flying back to play in the snow.
Mr Peltomaki added: “The Pygmy owl was looking down intensively for about 30 seconds - obviously it heard a vole under the snow - then it very quickly dived in to the deep soft snow, very close to me. First its head was under the snow when it was looking for vole and it was almost completely covered. The whole hunting sequence lasted 15 seconds and the owl looked very satisfied when it flew off with a vole. I was thrilled to witness and capture this scene on camera.”
