Welcome my friends to the birthday that never ends.

§ March 18th, 2010 § Filed under sluggo, swamp thing § 4 Comments

So pal Dana dropped by the shop on Wednesday to bring us some homemade cupcakes in honor of my birthday this past weekend, because she is awesome. Even more awesome was the birthday card she drew for me with the wraparound cover:

Yes, that’s Sluggo and Swamp Thing giving each other the high five. And they’re both wearing sombreros. Note that Sluggo is wearing a sombrero on top of the hat he normally wears. This is the greatest thing ever. (Here’s a little context for the whole sombreros thing, in case you’d forgotten.)

  • The spam catchin’ plug-in on my site seems to be catching genuine comments, and there’s no easily-implementable white list function to correct this issue. Until I can find a little time to tinker with this, if you post a comment and it doesn’t show right away, don’t worry…I go through the spam folder every day and I’ll find and approve your comment eventually. I apologize for the inconvenience.
  • Sad to report that my non-readership streak of Antarctic’s books remain unbroken, as, despite my initial hopes for the title, a glance through Time Lincoln didn’t do anything for me. Sorry! No hard feelings, I hope…it’s not you, baby, it’s me.

    And, as pointed out in the comments…the Time Lincoln logo is very reminiscent of the Time Warp logo. Probably should have realized that myself…I keep coming across copies of Time Warp at the shop, after all.

  • I may have seen this image a couple of weeks ago, and have been dying to link to it once it was posted. And at last, here it is: Chris Sims and Rusty Shackles bring you an installment of Great Comics That Never Happened that has to be seen to be believed. I would buy the hell out of this comic. (SPECIAL NOTE TO MY DAD, WHO READS MY SITE EVERY DAY: Click on “Great Comics” link, Dad.)

    Thanks for looking into the spam-filter issue, Mike. I’ll go back to commenting now. And remember–I want a first-class ticket when you build that rocket. :)

    (in a Vincent Price -like voice) What are you trying to feed the bloggers-sanitized pablum? REVOLTING!

    I can imagine a little awkwardness, though, if the card was handed to you left side up.

    Mike: (thinking) What is this? “Curious George and the Third Reich?”

    (opens card)

    Mike: Ah, thanks Dana. (thinking) Whew!
