Harvey Korman has passed away.
My earliest exposure to Harvey Korman was on reruns of The Carol Burnett Show when I was a little kid, and then as The Great Gazoo on The Flinstones.
However, like a lot of people who remember him, I'll probably always remember him best from Blazing Saddles.
I don't know why, but my favorite line of his was, "How did he do such fantastic stunts with such little feet?"
Robert Kirkman loved Speed Racer too!
My favorite part of his review : "If I had to pick a flaw in it, it would be that Christina Ricci didn’t come out of the screen and have sex with me. That’s the only flaw I can think of."

Dreams come to life in steps.
Curt's up next.
Maggie is awesome for making these for us.
MoCCA is next weekend!
I'm hell of stressed trying to get everything all wrapped up and finished and figured out. I'm also crazy busy at work. All of this is to say I'm having a hard time finding time or energy to post. I apologize. I've really been wanting to keep everyone more up to date on what all has been going on with our comic, but I've been too busy doing stuff for it.
Actual panel from Let's Be Friends Again : The Mini-Comic.
A few things...
- Our new site will be up and at least walking soon. This blog will of course remain in action as it has for going on 6 years, but the new site will be where our comic adventures will continue in an ongoing, persistent, regular fashion. Seriously.
- The mini-comic itself will be available for anyone who wants one after we get back from New York. There may also be other little doo-dads and goo-gaws with our adorable mugs on them available. You never know if people are going to like doo-dads and goo-gaws. Or our adorable mugs. In the future, we hope to offer our adorable mugs on adorable mugs.. which is to say cute drinking receptacles, not other faces.
CROSS POST FROM DESTINATION : BLOG!
I know things have been a little slow over there (and here) lately, but check this entry from my "chrishaley loves comics every day" series out and then head over to D:B!.
In case you have been (living under a rock, that is), this week is the start of DC's Final Crisis! I'm rather excited about this comic, but what's even more exciting about this week at your LCS is the fact that it's Grant Morrison Does DC Week!
Not only is he responsible (on the writing end) for Final Crisis #1, but this week also sees the release of part two of his Batman R.I.P. story.
And, as if that weren't enough to slake your thirst for funnybooks penned by Scottish madmen, the next to last issue of the best comic in the universe, All Star Superman, is out this week as well!
It sure is, Lex. It sure is.
