There's been a call for a General Strike in the U.S. on 9/11.The slogan is, "No work. No school. Hit the streets." The General Strike is embracing a wide and important range of issues, including the Iraq war; election fraud; surveillance, torture and civil rights; corporate media; military profiteering; and the 9/11 coverup. You can read about what's being planned nationally and locally and find flyers and web graphics to help spead the word here. You can also join the Facebook protest group or the MySpace action group. If you're disturbed by what's happening in the U.S., participating in the general strike is an excellent way to make your opinion known. Nothing makes tyrants more nervous than the power of the people to gather, to share, and to demonstrate.

I've written before about my appreciation for Stjepan Sejic's covers for Dynamite Entertainment's Dark Xena comic book. In my last trip to the comic store, I was riveted by Sejic's cover for Savage Tales #3, also from Dynamite. I love the strength the artist shows in Red Sonja's arms, and the way her brutality in fighting is reinforced by the rough, swooping strokes of paint. On Sejic's website, I found another image of Red Sonja I liked that he had done in a completely different style. In that image, it's the muscular definition in Red Sonja's thighs and the sheer bulk of her knees that impresses me.
