The Next Step In Creepy

Wow, and I thought that LifeGems were surreally morbid.

The people at Biojewelry will take a biopsy of your living bone tissue, culture it, and sculpt it into jewelry for you. The core idea is the Cultured Bone Wedding Ring, where husband and wife swap cultured bits of themselves to seal the traditional pact.

Okay, I want a cultured human bone ring set with a Lifegem now. It's what all the well-dressed Necromancers wear!

Eye of the Dragon

But his Spirit lives on.

Will Eisner passed away on January 3rd, 2005 at the age of 87 following quadruple bypass heart surgery.

Eisner was one of the most influential figures in comics, and the single individual most responsible for the medium's slow progress toward credibility as a respectible art form. He coined the term "graphic novel", and his work continually pushed the boundaries of the medium.

The "Oscar" of the comics world bears his name.
