Link Fest

I've been neglectful on my linkage lately, mostly due to having to constantly fix my blog. So, here's some interesting stuff happening around the web:

Mike Sterling had an interesting post on the 7 Deadly Harveys awhile back: http://progressiveruin.com/archives/
2004_08_22_archive.html#109323894185584669


Aplogies for the long links folks, but I'm an HTML idiot.

Also, a big thank you to Mike for mentioning this blog and my review of Madbomb. Of course, he misspelled it, but hey, we've all been there.

Dorian always has a few interesting things to say, and you have to admire how blunt he is: http://www.postmodernbarney.com/

Current topics include New Comics Day, and Space Lincoln. Yes, Space Lincoln.

It just occurred nto me that I'm going to get some odd search hits with the word "blunt."

Check out http://www.cinescape.com/ for Tony Whitt's new Comicscape column, which includes the rest of his interview with the Elfquest team of Richard and Wendy Pini. Here's hoping their currrent union with DCdoes bring out that Elfquest movie.

Tony's also got a review of Carnet De Voyage by Blankets creator Craig Thompson. It's well worth a look.

Mr. Bacardi has an interesting pic of the uber-hot Milla Jovovich: http://johnnybacardi.blogspot.com/

It's not worksafe, and has been known to cause heart attacks, so beware.

And most importantly, the Comic Book Galaxy is looking to raise a quick buck by selling of a few great items:

There's alot of good stuff there. I've already picked up 40 bucks worth of books, and depending on how quick I get some extra cash, and what's left, I may pick up a few more. I'd love to have the Untold Tales trade, but I already have most of the seriesin floppies, so it seemed pretty pointless. however, it's a good read, so someone should buy it!

If I were a wealthy man I'd be buying those signed Moore books. You also can't go wrong with that FF lot, damn good stuff in there. And Losers looks to be a good buy as well, everyone seems to love it. I'll get around to reading mine eventually.

So, head on over to CBG: http://www.comicbookgalaxy.com/index.html and buy something.

Also, ADD posted a nifty little pic on his own blog: http://www.comicbookgalaxy.com/blog/

You have to scroll down aways, but just look for the Flag. Good stuff.

I'll be back later with some reviews.

I can't believe I screwed up the name of "Madbomb." Fixed now, though!
