Musical Mondays at Fish-Flavored Baseball Bat!

I have been meaning to hype up Musical Mondays for literally three months now but I keep forgetting. In any event, pretty much every Monday on his neat comic blog, Fish-Flavored Baseball Bat, Erich posts a sketch from a comic book artist that goes along with a song. For instance, his latest sketch is from Steve Rude, and it is of Baron Von Strucker and it is a tie-in to Nick Cave’s “Red Right Hand.”

Awesome, right?

Here is the link to Erich’s Musical Mondays.

Read on to see a couple more samples…

The great Peter Bagge with Mudhoney’s “Here Comes Sickness”….

The amazing Eric Powell with Tom Waits’ “Misery is the River of the World”….

The nifty Georges Jeanty with the Magnetic Fields’ “Papa Was a Rodeo” (to go with a sketch of Outlaw from Deadpool)….

The legendary Mike Mignola with Screamin’ Jay Hawkins’ “Little Demon” (to go with a sketch of Lil’ Hellboy)…

And finally, the magnificent Ryan Sook with the Bee Gees’ “I Started a Joke”….

Isn’t this, like, the greatest?

So be sure to check Erich’s site out every Monday. I know I do!!


Thanks for the shout-out! I’m glad you’ve been enjoying my collection. Unfortunately, I’m approaching the end, as I’m almost caught up to my most recent acquisitions. However, I’ve still got a lot of “musical sketch” ideas for future conventions, so I’ll post them when I get more.

One idea I had that really amuses me, though it would take forever to complete it: I had the idea of starting a separate sketchbook, with each page using a single line from “The Waters of March” (“A stick/A stone/It’s the end of the road…”) and getting the artists to illustrate whatever each line’s object or concept inspires in them. I probably won’t wind up doing that, but the idea still makes me smile.

Once I’ve finished posting the last (to date) of my “musical sketches,” I’ve also been keeping another sketchbook devoted to Golden Age characters, so I’ll be sharing those as well.

Get your dose of corporate humor. Meet Mr. Konundrum & his imaginary friend Mr. Komon Sen in SHRM India’s weekly webcomic ‘Life of Mr. Konundrum’. http://on.fb.me/lifeofkonundrum
