Yes, folks, it’s that time of the month – when I make up for falling behind at Snark Free Waters, and make it up by having a big “Name That Artist” Game! This time, it’s a continuation of the original “making up for falling behind” game, “Name That Iron Man Artist!” The following are links to panels by Iron Man artists from the end of David Michelinie and Bob Layton’s first run (#159) until the end of John Byrne’s run (about #279). Here is a link to the artists from the first game – none of those artists appear among the fifteen artists in the new game. Read on to see the links to each panel! Continue Reading »

It’s also my birthday. Yippee! I turn 35 today, which means I’m old. Okay, not old, but I feel old. It also means that I remember buying comics when you could give the clerk a single piece of green paper with George Washington’s picture on it and receive a comic book in exchange and get change. I know – sit down and catch your breath for a second! Phew, that’s quite the head rush!
In celebration of my natal-versary, I’m giving stuff away! Continue Reading »
