Gorgeous work, really. Atmospheric like nobody's business. The color scheme and floating particles in the sunlight make it seem almost ...

The colors are gorgeous and vivid, the out-of-focus effect drawing to mind old monster movies. The characters exude personality, and th...

    So, if all four Fantastic Four movies were analogized to the actual members of the Fantastic Four... which is which?  Here's the way I see it:  The unreleased 1994 film could be Ben Grimm, since it's "disfigured" by not having been released outside of bootleg DVDs and also rough around the edges but pitiable.  The 2005 movie and its sequel, Rise of the Silver Surfer, are obviously Sue and Johnny Storm (respectively).  They're both pretty, the former leaves almost no impression, and the younger sequel loves itself more than anyone else does in spite of burning down its own franchise.  And the next one, due out later this year, must certainly be Reed Richards, with its (apparently) more cerebral approach and willingness to "stretch" the classic interpretations of the iconic superheroes and their origins.

    I think I've made a solid case, but what about you?  Do you agree?  If not, discuss your own system for matching the four Fantastic Four movies to corresponding members of the actual Fantastic Four by anthropomorphizing various aspects of the films and assigning them to the titular characters in a thematically appropriate arrangement!

    And let's pray to God that they never make a fifth, because then all of this would be worthless.

I spent six years learning at the Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, Georgia, and have been publishing my webcomic (Zebra Girl) since 2000. I don't drink, smoke, eat meat, or do drugs, and yet I remain worthy of pity. Then again, that might go without saying.

Man I'd almost completely forgotten about the spontaneous combustion thing. It's been way too long :D

I almost want to see Joe combusted for getting us so close to an explanation from Zandra, then yanking the rug out from under us, but I'll forgive him because of the awesome Zandra/Crystal art.

Good thing the Varcolac doesn't have appeared to appear in our little town!
Happy 15th!

Thanks!  Heh, well, the Varcolac is a real creature in folklore, though Mignola did inspire me to research it (at least, as much as I could get from Wikipedia).  I actually found out that it's mostly thought of as a sort of werewolf.  There are several places where the lines blur, the Pricolici is another example.  So in my cosmology, Varcolac and Pricolici are werewolf vampires (or vampire werewolves)!

I saw Sandra's 15th B-day photo. Nice work. :)

So she spent her 15th B-day at a Chuck E. Cheese type of place? :)

Were there any singing animatronics? :)

There were, but they were out of order.  No one was disappointed... they hadn't worked in like a year.

Well dayum! I felt something like a long-held breath released when I got to the final panel of the latest ZG page. I could easily read just dozens of pages of these two blabbing back and forth about things now.
