Legal | A judge has ordered Matthew Pocci to stand trial on charges of felony reckless driving for an incident at last year’s SDCC ZombieWalk: San Diego that left one woman seriously injured. In a preliminary hearing held Wednesday, the defense argued that Pocci, who is deaf, was scared for his and his family’s safety, and was just trying to drive through an opening in the crowd of spectators, but the prosecution countered that he had grown angry and impatient.

Creators | Richard Sala talks about the allure of comics, his creative process and his characters: “For better or worse, I’m not one of those writers who say ‘my characters take on a life of their own and do whatever they want and I just listen to them until I slowly understand who they are’ and so on. I don’t write those kinds of stories. Sadly, my characters are pretty much all me. Every story I write and draw has the same ‘voice’ and it’s mine. Every speck of curiosity, fear, fortitude, nastiness and gloom is conjured up out of some corner of my own brain, some darker than others. For me, it’s more of an exorcism of personal demons than an attempt to empathize with fictional characters.” [Electric Literature]
