A Few Reminders/Notes…

1. Get on Twitter and tweet your suggestions for a Marvel/Disney mash-up! Enough of you have written in that there’s a good selection for our artists to pick from, but more would be nice! Just tweet your suggestions to @csbg! We’ve received about 14 suggestions so far – I’d prefer to see that get into the 20s. EDIT: Okay, I’ve mailed the suggestions to the artists! Thanks, folks! You got into the mid-30s!!

2. Be sure to vote for your choices for the most memorable moments in DC Comics history! Click here for the poll. The deadline is August 8th at 11:59pm!

3. I meant to mention this awhile ago – did you know that we now have handy dandy “sharing” technology for all of our posts? Click on the “Share This” part under “leave a comment” and you can share our posts on your Facebook page, on digg, on del.icio.us, on stumbeupon, or on fark! We’d certainly appreciate you spreading the word if you like a particular post!

4. Remember, next Thursday I’m putting up a gallery of “dream inter-company crossovers” for any artist who wants to participate – whether you applied for the weekly sketch thing or not! Just get your sketches to me at bcronin@comicbookresources.com by next Thursday at 3pm!


The Ugly American

For those of us who aren’t twits, can we just post our suggestions here in the comments?

Pluto and the Pet Avengers!!

I somewhat understand the aversion to twitter, but it really is a handy thing if you follow people whose creative output is internet based. If you follow a bunch of podcasts or read a bunch of articles by a particular writer most likely they are on twitter and will make a post when their new thing is up. Instead of checking umpteen sites to see if there is a new item, you can just check twitter a few times a day. It’s not all “I just ate a sandwich”, for every 1 post Warren Ellis makes about going to the pub or Patton Oswalt makes about actually having a sandwich there are 10 that are at the very least good for a chuckle.

Meh, down with social media / big brother…

“Meh, down with social media / big brother…”

Did I say stupid shit like this when I was in high school?

I’m thinking that maybe I did. I hope not.

Why are there two threes?

A clever test!

Everyone please follow CSBG on twitter. I really want another month of Greatest Stories Ever Told.

Right on, Philip (I did a quick little bit of editing to your post, to make sure people know they’re to follow the blog, not me, for the incentives).

Re Marvel/Disney: I’d LOVE to see that Spider-Man/Gargoyles story that Greg Weissman wrote done as an actual comic (or cartoon!)
