  1. I LOVE that art. Your art choices are always so good 🙂

    Just so you know, I’m officially using these posts to find Deviant Artists, look at the licensing they use, and use the ones that have cc licenses with proper credit when I need themed comic art. Will come over here and bookmark a bunch of them to get me started at some point. Probably will start this early next year.

    Also, added your Facebook page to a private list I use to keep up with people over there and took a swipe at it with some personal likes. Loading you into my main news feed, is what I am doing.

    I’m donating my personal timeline to the blogosphere for a year and seeing what happens. And you, my friend, are too good to not share.

    • I’m happy to hear you like my artistic choices and even happier to hear your kind words. Thank you for including me on your Facebook feed as well. Facebook as a whole seems so daunting to get established there and definitely needs someone special to make it work and prosper. I’ll be interested to hear your continued adventures there. Thanks again! 🙂

    • I’ll be featuring that Batman pic next week as well as 5 other pieces. His style might not be for everyone (like you said) but there are always cases of brilliant artists that have divisive art. I for one was blown away. 🙂

  2. Outright Geekery had a great idea: I always share with you my best reads of the month, but I had never thought to write down a list of my Top 5 Single Issues of 2014. My list is:

    5th place: Moon Knight # 1
    4th place: Green Arrow # 32
    Bronze medal: The Fade – Out # 1
    Silver medal: Witchblade # 175
    Gold medal: The Punisher # 7

    Special mention for Terminator: Enemy of my enemy # 6 (6th) and Superman/Wonder Woman # 12 (7th).

    I thoroughly enjoyed every single issue of Moon Knight # 1 – 8, so I chose the 1st one solely because it’s the issue that started it all.

    • I for one could never take all the issues I’ve read in a given year and narrow it down to a Top 5 or even Top 10 list. I just can’t do it. It is for that reason that I admire your list. It was pleasant to see your Gold Medal going to the very issue you wrote a Guest Article on for me. Ellis and Shalvey’s run on Moon Knight was another highlight for sure. You couldn’t go wrong with any of the issues taking 5th Place. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  3. P.S.: I just realized that Batwing # 27 came out on the 8th day of 2014, so it gets the 7th place to the detriment of Superman/Wonder Woman # 12.
    Of course I didn’t consider the trades (like Concrete Park) and the reprints (like Cinder and Ashe).
