At some point earlier this year I started writing (and abandoned) alternate lyrics to the old Spider-Man theme song.
Does whatever I tell him too
Spins a web, hits on guys
Catches thieves with curly fries
That's as far as I got.
This honestly made me laugh when I rediscovered it, so I thought I'd share it as a Christmas present to you.

I have real content I'd like to update with, but I simply don't have the time to mess with it at the moment.
I'm neck deep in this epic Christmas project Curt and I have put upon ourselves.
All I can really say is wish us luck... more me than Curt though.

As an early Christmas present to my favorite comic-making partner/megaphone crooner and with special help from a piece of paper, I have made the following cartoon.
It's Curt in his standard attire.. which is to say, the attire of Richie Rich.

As an early Christmas present to my favorite comic shop employee/former roommate and with special help from The ISB (for the scans) I have made the following comic.
I know it's for Sean, but you're all welcome.
Green Arrow and Black Canary #3
I'm not going to spoil it or anything, but I will say that Rachelle summed things up perfectly : "Congratulations, Judd Winick. You've ruined Christmas."
Green Lantern #25
The only DCU book published in 2007 that seems like it was made by the same company that publishes All Star Superman. Well done.
That is all.

Just wanted to try to come up with a young Superman if he were in the Scott Pilgrim-verse.
I've actually been sitting on this one since before Scott Pilgrim Vol. 3 came out.
Got lost in the shuffle, I guess.
I think it's my favorite thing I've ever done.

If it's okay with you, I'd like to tell you (briefly) about two comics I read today.
Neither of these are (brand) new comics, so this isn't really a review, but they are two comics I read today.. so there.
The All-New Atom #17
This comic sucked.
This comic did not.
That is all.

It's time for some more random photo phun.
French film magazine CineLive has a new shot of Christian Bale as The Dark Knight.
Is it just me or does this new version of the suit look a little too busy?
Amazon spills the beans, yet again, on an exciting upcoming (and previously unannounced) release.
And while we're on the subject of The King, this may be one of the greatest things I've ever seen.
Drawn by Jack Kirby.
Inked by Darwyn Cooke.
The only way it could be any better was if he was riding Devil Dinosaur.

Well, I've decided to start a (hopefully) regular comic here on the internet.
I'm intending it basically as a warm-up kind of thing for Curt and I's real comics.
It's called Werewolf vs Zombie.
Click it, and I hope you enjoy it!

I'm famous again!
A Superman-centric blog called Say It Backwards that I just discovered a few days ago, linked me and used my Supergirl art as well as a few others from Project Rooftop's Supergirl Week.
Go check it out!
While we're on the subject of things to look at, have a look at this screencap of icons made from publicity photos from The Dark Knight that Warner Bros lawyers made disappear.
(That was a complicated mess of a sentence.)
Click for bigger, of course.
You can head over to USA Today's first look article, but this was all I had to see to have me fully on the Speed Racer Party Planning Committee. Or the SRPPC.
I mean, he looks exactly like Speed Racer!
How much longer until this comes out?
UPDATE : Oh, also..
THAT MONKEY IS READING A COMIC BOOK!
WHILE WEARING A CUTE LITTLE JUMPSUIT!
IN THE TRUNK OF THE MOST BADASS RACECAR EVER!
"First, lets examine Superman's powers: flight, super strength, invulnerability, super speed, vision powers, super hearing, and super breath. Nowhere on that list do you see "memory erasing kiss," which is good, because that would be retarded."

It's a shame their website is so much funnier than their magazine.

"There are no lyrics in this song that aren’t about how completely, utterly, and thoroughly, fucking awesome you are at everything from fighting to gambling to sports."
Cracked.com brings us..
The 10 Most Terrifyingly Inspirational '80s Songs
I sincerely thank them for this.
In case you hadn't heard yet, Invincible is now a free-to-view, page-a-day comic strip at Newsarama.
It just started this week, so there's not much to see yet.. what with it only being Wednesday and all.
Wow, is it really only Wednesday? Longest week ever.

Let's have some random photo phun, shall we?
All the pictures are clickable.
It'll be here in February. It looks great. I'm very excited.
Check out the sweet Darwyn art on the covers.
Green Lantern and Sinestro both show up on this weekend's episode of The Batman.
Comic sequels abound! Which are you most looking forward to?
Monday, December 03, 2007
I haven't done so in a while, so I thought I'd post some quick reviews.
Very quick reviews.
Death of the New Gods #3
Every bit as awful as it looks.
New X-Men #Whatever : Messiah Complex Part Something
Who the hell cares?
The only reason anyone even noticed this comic exists is because of Namor's crotch-fist on the cover. Well played, Mr. Turner.
As usual, this book is great and feels like it's only 5 pages long. I need more Invincible every month.
Blue Beetle #21
DC to readers : Spectre still around! Also still black guy!
Marvel to readers : This (bad) joke of a story is still going! Please care!
Lord Havok and the Countdown Blah-bibbity-blah!
DC to readers : This is a real comic! Really!
Spider-Man : One More Day Part 3
The middle-aged men in charge of Marvel to readers : We're having our mid-life crisis and we're taking you with us!
Green Lantern Corps #18
DC to readers : Isn't this Sinestro Corps War awesome? Please care about Sodam Yat! Please? PS - Fuck Kyle Rayner.
Ra's al Ghul, who's whole deal is that he keeps coming back from the dead, has come back from the dead again. For some reason we're supposed to care.
Also, Tony Daniels? Really? Really? I'm sure Grant Morrison's loving that.
All Star Batman #8
Frank Miller continues to write one of the worst comics ever.
Jim Lee continues to draw it with a straight face.
DC continues to pay them both truckloads of money for it.
Even if you're enjoying the comic on an ironic level and treating it as a comedy/parody, it still reads like it was written by a group of 8-13 year olds trying to make it sound tough and cool.
Child writer to bully : "Comics are not for little kids! Look at how many swear words Batman can say!"
