Today Fantagraphics and comiXology present Happy Hour in America issues 1-4 by Tim Lane. Featuring installments of Belligerent PianoFolktales and experimental comics reminiscent of that old-timey newspaper comic strip. Lane’s characters drive a cool highway until they gotta stop for gas and a quick diner breakfast but pulse and threaten to suck you into your tablet. If your shave kit consists of Brylcreem, burglarly and murder then these tales might mirror some hard-knocks in your life. Originally distributed through John Porcellino's Spit and Half Distribution, these tricked-up juke box and train-jumpin’ tales can be yours for $2.99 a piece.

Amy Schumer and Seth Rogen spoof Independence Day in Super Bowl advert

Amy Schumer and Seth Rogen are forming a fake political party and they are using the Super Bowl to kick off their campaign.

The funny duo appear in a spoof political advert for the Bud Light party that will air during the Super Bowl on Sunday.

The one minute ad references the president’s rallying cry in disaster movie Independence Day, with Amy declaring: “My fellow Americans, they say we’re a nation divided. They say we disagree on everything.”

Seth chimes in to say that’s not true and Americans agree on a lot, like Paul Rudd — “everybody loves Paul Rudd!”

.@IndependenceDay The words ring truer than ever. It’s happy hour again in America. Welcome to the #BudLightParty pic.twitter.com/YbavkRHlYu
