What, you think only guys pull that stunt?

Yeah, I’m running a bit late tonight. I had some shopping to do this afternoon, including picking up actual Bristol Board to possibly use for the strip. (Click the comic for the behind the scenes page or head to the archive page and, well, click on the comic.) I also made a surprise purchase.

It happened to be on sale at Gamestop…for $30 bucks! The PC version usually goes for $50, so while it’s not the deal I picked up on the first Portal ($2, but Circuit City was sadly closing), it’s still awesome. However, with the blog and my paying job I won’t have a chance to boot it up and play it until at least Thursday. Thus is the sacrifice I make for my readers. I figure they suffer enough just being my readers. To that end, news!


  • A Lindsay Lohan bio-comic. Why?
  • Oh, I’ll get to the latest Superman fallout tomorrow.
  • While I think Ari’s being a bit harsh on Peter David, this issue of X-Factor is off on a few points.
  • A look at what went wrong with the New Teen Titans.
  • I’ll remind you on Thursday, but next Saturday is Free Comic Book Day. I’ll be posting my thoughts over at the Twitter feed as I read through them. Check the link in the footer to see what’s coming out and try to guess at what I’m hunting down and which ones I’ll be able to find. 🙂
