What do Darkseid, Dr. Doom, Galactus, and I have in common? Exquisite fashion sense? Unquenched and unquenchable thirst for power? Being created by Jack Kirby? Yes, yes, but also: we have all been listed by CBR as among the 365 reasons to love comics! Nice!
While I'm checking through my blog hits, here's some other points of interest:
PopMatters has reviewed the latest issue of Ballyhoo Stories, which is my first issue as the magazine's comics editor. I'm proud of the line-up of cartoonists who contributed, and delighted by their work, and it's nice to see that some other folks liked it, too.
A strip from this very blog is assigned reading for a comics writing workshop at the Cambridge Center for Adult Education.
And from the always amusing realm of Google search phrases: while most Googlers swing by the blog looking for good deals on beeswax, or information on encaustic painting, there's still a steady stream of disappointed folks searching for "Supergirl upskirt" and "how to draw Ironhide" (the transforming robot, not the cursing sailor). But the hot news is the sudden increase in Shannon Tweed fans and searches for "porn movie mistakes."
Ah, geeky, horny internet, you're so delightfully predicatble. Which is why I'm changing the name of this blog to "Supergirl and Catwoman making out in a Gundam."
