I've got Tigra covered.

If you've never checked out Covered Blog, it's an enjoyable site. Artists do their own interpretations of comic covers. Being the Tigra fan that I am, I decided to send one in. You can see it there here, or look at it below. Click to enlarge, if you like.

Here's the original 1975 cover by Howard Chaykin and Bernie Wrightson.

I've always wanted Tigra to be a fun-loving character whose cat-like curiosity gets her into interesting predicaments (including fighting monsters). I'm not sure what Marvel's take on her is. Bad-luck slut, maybe? I haven't truly kept up with what's happening with her lately. I suspect I don't want to know.

An Awesome Comic-Con Sketch! (Not Really.)

On my road trip to San Diego, I ended up in a doctor's office, in Oklahoma City. (I'm fine. Thank you for your moment of curiosity.) The doctor explained things to me as he drew on the rolling paper that covers the examination table. I asked if I could keep it. He said, "Sure," as he graciously torn it out and signed it. It's pretty big. 10.5" x 10.5".

The story gets more complex. I didn't make it to San Diego, but it doesn't end sadly. I ended up having a great vacation in the Palo Duro Canyon, Texas, and the Rocky Mountains, Colorado! Here's a couple of pictures from it...

The Cookie Monster Diet

Have you ever noticed that when Cookie Monster eats, very little food gets into his mouth?

This would be a great approach for a new diet! Super models could start eating like the C. Monster to keep their svelte figures!

I'm hoping this starts a fad.

A New Facebook Group!

A gentleman from France, Jean-Fran├žois Virey, has created a Halo and Sprocket Group on Facebook. I think I'll go join right after I post this...
