Comics don’t have to be about Men in Tights, or even superpowers (though of course we love those stories, too). There are a lot of great comic books that tell other types of tales; today’s Stack Overflow features several I’ve read recently. The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye by Sonny LiewI’m woefully late with this one—it was actually published in March 2016—but I misplaced the advance proof I was sent for this book and just rediscovered it while reorganizing.
Our adventures in the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game: Mummy’s Mask continue! Having dealt with “Empty Graves” and the Forgotten Pharaoh Cultists, we move on to Deck 3, “Shifting Sands” … and, uh, more Forgotten Pharaoh Cultists. There are a lot of them. The scourge die increases again, this time to 1d6+1, so you may suffer more harmful scourges. As with the other adventures, if you suffer Poison damage and can’t reduce it, you suffer a Curse of Poisoning.
The Awkward Yeti is a hilarious webcomic that often features the adventures of Lars the Yeti, Heart and Brain, as well as a host of other organs. In OrganATTACK!, you and your opponents each have a set of these organs, and compete to remove everyone else’s organs with a host of ailments. At a glance: OrganATTACK! is a game by The Awkward Yeti for 2 to 6 players, ages 10* and up, and takes about half an hour to play (though time varies depending on the number of players).
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
