Faith, horror and comics….
I see that no one has taken a stab at that Whose Line caption yet. I feel really bad about that. Usually I can whip up two or three, but just haven’t had any inspiration over there. I hope someone can throw a strip or two up there before Ben has to change it.
However, we do have a new Violent Blue up, talking about how Christians seem to find each other in the strangest places. I was a little surprised the first time this happened at The Chamber Nightclub, but at this point it no longer freaks me out. It’s not just clubs either…I find the people of faith at Horror cons, comic shops, film and art festivals…and it’s never when I’m expecting it.
Speaking of comic shops, one of the guys I was playing Heroclix with Monday night told me there was a new one out in Lorain, so I slipped out there this week. Not a lot of local places sell modern Heroclix singles so I really wanted to check out the selection. The place is nice, clean and friendly, in fact, they were kind enough to hook me up with that FCDB Green lantern I missed out on! I’m thinking of stopping out there for game nights on the off weeks I don’t play at Warzone (Like the week of my wife’s monthly game night). Check out Get ‘Em Comics at this address :
Finally, we got Taversia Top list back up on the comic site, so do me a favor and vote me up a bit over there huh? I’ve got some lost time to make up for.

Whose line stumps me
The new caption over at Whose Line is it Anywhoo is indeed up, but “Don’t Quit Your Day Job” is a Little too much like “Maybe it’s time for a new job” that we just did a few months ago, and I used all my ideas on that one. You may have stumped me on this one Ben.
In the mean time, I may post a couple of pages from teh Whose Line project I’m playing around with….a single story, but with each page using a line from the Whose Line submissions. I’m a page or two behind, and I actually have one strip that goes before the first one I did…yeah it’s confusing. You didn’t expect anything I do to be simple did you?
New Violent Blue up today, and while we take a swipe at bad tomato movies over there, I’m thinking about one of the stars of the film (return of the killer tomatoes).
You know, I used to like George Clooney, but he hasn’t been funny in anything since “One Fine Day”. These days his rider for acting in a movie includes a little “beach hut” outside his trailer, a landscaped garden, and a basketball court (A half court I’m sure). No wonder it costs 11 dollars to go to the movies. Clooney turns me off these days because he’s gotten a little too full of himself. It’s a good idea to remind him where he came from with movies like this and “Return to Horror High”.
Return of the Killer Tomatoes Also has another thing going for it, it features John Astin (Gomez from the Addams Family, Buddy from Night Court, heck, he even played the riddler once on the old Batman TV show) who would go on to reprise his role as a mad scientist. The movie also breaks the fourth wall a lot as it satirizes product placment in films.
All in all, Return is actually a very fun film, though don’t expect it to bear much resemblance to “Attack of the Killer Tomatoes”. We won’t get that untill later installments (there’s four movies in this franchise. Can you believe it?)

I wonder if Whose Line has a new caption up yet?
New strip up
There’s a new strip up over at Violent Blue. We’re almost out of this story arc, but f you’d prefer superhero antics, you can also check out the new strip up at Whose Line Anywhoo. Bonus points if you can figure out where the Joker’s speech comes from.

Rain Day and new comics
So the art show got rained out yesterday. I’m a little upset about that. However, I guess it gives me more time to prep. On the other hand, the date that was mentioned for the rain date is the last day of Cinema Wasteland. I’m even more upset about that. Grrrr. I guess I’ll live.
Any how, a new Violent Blue is up, and if that’s not enough Violent Blue, there’s also a VB strip up today over at Whose Line is it Anywhoo
See todays strip here :
and my guest strip over at Whose Line here :
Now I’m off to meet up for Heroclix at War Zone games in Parma. I should be there around six or so if anyone else wants to play.
New Violent Blue with Dew
New Violent Blue is up. This turned out to be a bit of an unintentional follow up from my guest strip over at Whose Line ( www.whoseline.thecomicseries.com/comics/115 ). Funny, because I had this one queued up at least a week before I drew the other one.
New Whose Line
I’m so pleased that Whose Line is it Anywhoo is back up after a couple month hiatus. I’ve got a contribution up there today, so go check it out, then check back with us tomorrow for new Violent Blue!
