Yeesh. Here's a doozy... FIRST ROMANCE #13 (May 1952, Home Comics):
I have had a version of the following image hanging up in my living room ever since my friend Curt Pottiger gave it to me years ago. Check it out - Bill Wahl, seller of comic books, captured in a classic moment of excitement and enthusiasm for the medium he so loves:
I chanced upon this news and thought I might share it with you for your website. It appears that director Jon Favreau (Swingers & Elf) is doing the new Iron Man movie and is seeking input from the comic geekdom regarding the movie...kind of cool! He has set up this discussion board for some ideas. Here is the link:
Animation artist Michael Robinson of Mechanicsburg will be presenting his award-nominated short film OOMPER OOMPER on Sunday May 28th here in Harrisburg... click on the image to read the details!
I just ran across this nifty little item in my "catch-all junk box" that has all sorts of stuff, doo-dads and detrius that I've accumulated since I was a kid (like my fastest Hot Wheel car, a chartreuse Porsche 917 - no lie!)...
This Stone Golem was constructed using about 5 foam mattresses, over 50 sticks of hot melt glue, and 8 cans of grey and black spray paint. The foam is glued in large thick sheets (approx 20cm thick) to a fabric bodysuit, and the deep cracks are carved into the foam surface. The bodysuit has a zip up the back to allow the wearer to enter it, and the zip is concealed by abutting foam. The soles of the feet are made of corflute that has been sliced in half to expose corrugations that act as grip. The arms are about twice the length of the wearer\'s arms, and act as swinging weapons made entirely of soft foam. The golem took about 100 hours of work to construct, between 3 people. On its first appearance, the Stone Golem sent twenty bold adventurers into a hasty retreat without so much as touching them.That is too too cool!

Check this out... Librarian Cheryl Swisher from Donegal Springs Elementary School in Mount Joy, PA sent along these great photos from the Free Comic Book Day display that was set up in the school library (sponsored by Comix Connection):
Here's a couple of pics from last week's Godzilla Fan Club meeting...
Throughout the year as the 52 comic book series chronicles the fate of a world without Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman, 52thecomic.com will function as an Internet newsmagazine granting readers access to the headlines and stories of The Daily Planet including sports and weather information. In addition to this straight narrative function, the Website will also provide visitors with a "meta" service by providing interviews with the writers of the 52 comic, Geoff Johns, Grant Morrison, Greg Rucka and Mark Waid as well as behind-the-scenes storyboards by 52 breakdown artist Keith Giffen.
How did we get back down here? Back in the dark creepy recesses of Bill's Fan Fascination? Dunno. Must be the cold medicine.
"DON'T COME ANY CLOSER, BATMAN, OR I'LL TURN THE FAN TO FULL SPEED-- AND BATWOMAN WILL BE DOOMED!"he shrieks maniacally! (This cover is a FAN-boy's dream by the way... actually using an electric fan to torture a superhero! I'm getting chills!) Waitaminnit. "Doomed"? To what? Having all the blood rush to her head? To having her hair stand straight up? Losing all the contents of her pockets? Having her face turn an embarassing shade of beet red? Getting nauseus? (Hey, Mister Operator, stop the ride, I'm gonna be sick!)
