I'm a little late to the game, but this one from Kevin was just too much fun to pass up.

I've never really been a Supergirl fan, but I can really see what people mean when they say the title's gotten better lately. It's a lot more lighthearted and---

Take the "Marvel Comics Art of Wally Wood" Meme Challenge!!

Here's one to get you started.

My bad, dude...

Mark's Bad Librarianship has cost him many a job, so he's decided to try his hand at something new. Turns out designing the interiors of fortress strongholds for power-mad European dictators is quite the budding niche market. We at Random Panels wish him the best of luck.

When Bully isn't meting out arbitrary vengeance upon rodeo clowns, he splits his time between pondering incomprehensible diagrammatic funnybooks and trying to convince the general public that Comics Oughta Be Fun. We just wish he'd stop staring at us while he smiles and sharpens his horns.

SinRo has a Bitter View when it comes to most of humanity. But that still doesn't explain his irrational hatred of sword-wielding barbarians in particular. He's a pretty fashion conscious dude, so we think it might just be his way of critiquing the whole loincloth and fur cape look.

The mighty Fortress Keeper goes through teen sidekicks at a rate comparable only to Batman. He's been cleared of charges in each and every case, so we feel it's not our place to judge. We'll just keep sending those payments to the Fortress of Fortitude and pray he doesn't break our legs for testifying against him that one time.

Dorian will buy anything as long as it's ceramic and it'll fit in his front yard. Seriously. The dude has a lawn-gnome collection you wouldn't believe. Every now and again he'll share some of his more interesting his shopping experiences with the general public. Head on over to PostmodernBarney and check it out for yourself.

When Jonni's High Velocity Super Disco burned down back in the 70's, no one was really sure if it was an accident or not. Most blamed the mafia, others the Irish. Some say it all started when a French Canadian busboy named Roland started a greasefire in the kitchen that got out of control. The only thing we know for sure is that there haven't been nearly as many reported cases of death by alcohol poisoning since that place closed.

Son of Great Pages

Since Oz went off the air, there's been a dearth of good shower room intimidation scenes. Of the comic variety, I can only think of two. The one during Brian Azzarello's Hellblazer run and this one, which I find to be simultaneously creepy and hilarious.

Bullseye Suddenly Becomes Interesting

If you haven't done so already, head on over to Mike Wieringo's site and catch up on all the apey goodness. This guy's well on his way to replacing Art Adams as the premier artist in the "super heroes as gorillas" genre. Why DC hasn't given the man an Angel & the Ape mini or at least a Grodd vs. the JLA one-shot is beyond me. I'm not normally one to ask for sketches, but if I ever meet the dude at a convention I'll pay good money for a drawing of Galapetus- Devourer of Giant Bananas.

Brandon Bragg - Future Bloggers of America 04-05; Black Hole High Yearbook Club 06

After reading Black Hole by Charles Burns, I found myself wanting a companion piece. You know, a small book made to look like a high school yearbook filled with deformed, mutant teenagers smiling back at the me. I'll probably never see anything like that, but here's a little sample of what it might look like.


And for the hell of it I've included pictures of all the other hideous high schoolers included in that volume for you guys to play around with. Write some entries for these poor kids and let's assemble us a yearbook. It's for a good cause.
