The response to yesterday’s big SuperFogeys 400 has been terrific so far. As a thank you to everyone for sticking with us and being so supportive, Marc has crafted a huge wallpaper from the latest strip and it’s a beaut. Click on the image below to enlarge and download it for yourself. Enjoy!
This one takes me way back. Winston Rowntree is one of the most amazing, underknown webcomickers out there. You would do well to check out his always thought-provoking webcomic, Subnormality (warning: language). Thanks again, Winston!
Hey everybody, I just wanted to give you a quick heads up that I actually produced some fan art–a rare, rare thing–for Denver Brubaker’s amazing superhero serial, Tales of The Checkered Man. If you’re not reading Tales of The Checkered Man then you’re missing out something fierce. It’s a funny, clever and gorgeous take on the superhero genre, with a noir spin. Here’s a preview of my fan art:
See the full picture right here! Then start reading Tales of The Checkered Man!

I don’t normally use this forum to express any political, religious or social views, but there’s a movement happening today to “spread the word to end the word”–the R-Word. You can click right here to take the pledge. I’ve also written a short blog explaining my feelings about the word and why it’s so personal to me. Of course, if you’re a SuperFogeys reader, you already know why. Here’s a snippet of my blog:
Language is an every-evolving form of communication. Over time, word meanings can shift and what once was clinical can become derogatory and damaging. This has happened with the R-word.
For those who don’t know: The R-word is “Retard” or “Retarded.”
My daughter Cami has special needs. She has both physical and mental handicaps. She is also beautiful and sweet and perfect. Like so many children and adults like her, her life is hard enough without having to endure name-calling. But, the use of the R-word goes beyond that, doesn’t it? It’s not just a name. We hear the R-word used in casual speech all the time.
I’ve heard it said so many times in reference to anything from a bad movie to an ugly shirt. The meaning is understood: anything described as “retarded” is bad. But “retarded” is so much more than that… Read the rest right here.
I know many of you were straining to see just what the heck was on the bulletin board in SF 390 – “Bubbles of Light 7.” A couple of you actually pretty much figured it out (kudos to YOU guys!), but for the rest of you I thought you might like to see it a little bigger:
The bulletin boards were Marc’s idea, but most of what you see was written by me. The exception being the notice about the alien power ring. That was all Marc, based on a background character I threw in over 100 strips ago. Good memory, Marc.
The one notice you can’t see completely reads: 3RD ANNUAL UNMASKED BALL THIS FRIDAY AT 9PM! BE THERE!
It’s always a good idea to keep an eye on the details and background of the strips. You never know what you’ll find!
