How Tetris Became The Addictive Classic It Is Today

Even if you don’t like video games, odds are you’ve played Tetris. It’s not only the best selling video game of all time, it might also be the most addictive game ever. But you’re probably not as into Tetris as Box Brown is. He wrote a whole comic book about it, covering the exhaustive history of Tetris — from its humble beginnings as a side project in a Soviet Russian computer lab, to becoming a hard-fought prize for Nintendo that brought portable gaming to the world.

In Bishopville, South Carolina, Pearl Fryar is a local gardening legend. When he first moved to the small town in the 1980s, he was almost unable to build his house because neighbors feared that as an African American, he wouldn’t keep up his yard. Determined to dispel that stereotype, Fryar went on to win “Yard of the Month” from the local garden club.
