So in honor of the end of the Olympics (sniff) – which I somehow both watched a ton of and yet feel like I missed so much of what I wanted to see  – I’m re-posting this old Rabid Lamb comic – about swimming (of course!)

Some of you may not even know I did a daily (M-F) comic strip for a year. Ugh. A year. Yup. It was called Rabid Lamb and most of the time it sucked.  But occasionally it was funny.

For your (hopeful) amusement:

If you must have more, you can head to my website, where there’s a whole “Rabid Lamb” section…it’s just the hits, but I promise you that’s a good thing. 🙂

I always liked some of my Olympic ones (that’s right…these were done FOUR YEARS AGO – during Bejing!)

Here’s one of my favorites for your amusement:

In the past I’ve gone all out with celebrating…and by “all out” I mean doing a drawing (impressive, right?) but I’m so buried in Kickstarter and everything else, I just haven’t had time. So give you the GREATEST. IMAGE. EVER.

Oh, and an updated hit count: 1,326,656  

WOO!!!! Since last year we didn’t quite have 900,000 that means we got nearly 430k in hits over the past 12 months. Which is pretty good, especially since I’ve been so busy with other things. And considering that the hit count for our first year was a paltry 42k.

Thanks to all of you for keeping this blog nice and vibrant. Lots of potentially interesting things in the future…promise! 😉

Remember when it was just 300,000 we were so excited about?

Kitty Pryde!

I’ve really come around on Kitty. There was a time when I wasn’t a fan (at all) but ever since Joss Whedon’s Astonishing X-Men I’ve been reading more and more Kitty and loving it. The latest of course being Brian Wood tackling her in Ultimate Comics X-Men. Good stuff!

Here are the “rules“.

If you’d like to see the full Marvel October Cover Solicits head on over to CBR.

Similarly uneventful. A few real gems, a couple dogs. Some weirdness. You know, the usual!

Oh, and in a bit of shameless self promotion (and GUILT!) I ask that if you’ve been enjoying these posts over the years that you to check out my Kickstarter for my book THE GIRL WHO WOULD BE KING and donate if you can and think it looks worthwhile. See? GUILT!

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 695. I usually dislike floating heads covers, but this anchors things pretty nicely with a design element. Not bad!

ASTONISHING X-MEN 55. AH-MAZING. And of course it is, it’s Phil Noto! I love the color choices and the very graphic/stylized look he went for. It’s great.

Eh. They are what they are. I tried hard and got a few jokes in there…but I feel like they’re a bit underwhelming this month. Sorry, kids!

ACTION COMICS 13.

“Bwahaha! I have your little belt…or something…watchu gonna do about it?!”

Superman: “Whuuuuhuhdar?”

ALL STAR WESTERN 13.  Does anyone else find it hilarious that this is what Hex is REALLY afraid of? I mean, yes, that clown is fucking terrifying…but I’m not Jonah Hex…I mean…it doesn’t even have a fucking weapon…oh wait, it has a GIANT FUCKING KNIFE (and an arm that looks like it might be on backwards?)

And when I say “the year” I mean since last year’s comic-con in San Diego.  That’s right, in honor of SDCC 2012, which I am, again, not able to attend I thought I’d do a list of my 52 favorite covers* since last year’s comic-con, so essentially July 2011 – July 2012.** Check out previous years as well – here and here.

I’m not going bore you with lengthy descriptions about what I respond to in each image, but if you frequent this blog with any regularity, the choices will not surprise you.  My tastes skew to specific things like anyone, and I reward covers that cater to those personal tastes.  For example, as a woman, I tend to be interested in covers with female characters and at the same time you’re unlikely to see many covers with a lot of objectification and hyper sexualization.  As an artist (but only sorta, and a crappy one at that) I tend to be a bit of a snob about what I think is a good or bad cover – good often involves highly graphic images, lots of great negative space, interesting/solid composition, single figures, white space, and good integration of text into the image.

Whenever possible I’ve included the full cover, with text etc., as I feel that’s part of the whole.  I made a few exceptions if the covers were saddled with particularly horrible “event banners” or some such, or if I didn’t have access to a high enough resolution image including the text.

I’m sure I missed a bunch of great covers anyway and, as always, I never feel great about the order, but I tried my best! I hope you’ll enjoy, even if they’re not the covers you would pick, it’s a beautiful line up of cover gorgeousness.

If you’re new to the blog and haven’t seen my “100 Best Comic Covers” list, you can check it out: here, here, here, and here.  As well as my “already second guessing myself” modified list here.

Next year SDCC, next year!***

* This includes only monthly saddle stapled North American comics since that is what I have access to and did not include graphic novels, trades, etc. 

**Because comics are generally dated a month or two after they are actually released, there’s a bit of a fudging of the numbers/eligibility. It makes for a bit of grey area around the eligibility dates, but I did the best I could.

***Be advised, I say this every year.  Although there is a SLIM chance I’ll be going to NYCC this year – thanks to THIS. 🙂

KORRA!

I haven’t seen much of the new Korra series, but I know people are cuckoo for it – and it’s easy to see why. Great new female character of color on the scene? It’s far too rare.
