A "missed FCBD" appeal, and two bits of comics linkblogging

Due to the various family-related goings on connected with Erin’s baby shower, I managed to miss Free Comic Book Day (I’m not complaining, mind you… expensive baby stuff for free is a very good thing, and they brought home copious leftovers for me to feast on, so I was a happy man). A few stores here in RI still had a good deal of leftover books, though, so I was still able to pick up most of what I was looking for. There were a few I couldn’t find, however, so I was wondering if anybody out there in Bloggyverseland (be you retailer or person with extras) can hook me up with copies of the following FCBD books:

Buzzboy
Superior Showcase
Alternative Comics Presents
Comics Festival
Johnny Raygun
Bonesharps, Cowboys & Thunder Lizards (Update: Psychbloke helping me out with this one)

And I know it’s a longshot, but if anyone has an extra of that Batman Heroclix kicking around, that’d be pretty cool, too.

Any help you could offer would be very greatly appreciated. I’ll gladly refund postage and maybe throw in something fun by way of reward, too. Leave me a comment or email me at prufrock30 (at) hotmail (dot) com if you can help. Thanks!

Joe Rice has a number of really great Marvel Family sketches posted over at his blog (scroll down to see 'em all) that are well-worth checking out, even if you aren’t a fan of The Big Red Cheese and his associated hangers-on (And if you aren’t, why the hell not? It’s good comics, people!). The sketches by Jim Mahfood and Jaime Hernandez are particularly excellent, as are those done by Rice’s own students. That’s right… kids! Drawing Captain Marvel! You’re doing the Lord’s work, Joe Rice, and don’t forget it!

Scipio over at
the Absorbascon may be a Thanagar supporter (I’m pro-Rann, and I vote!), but he puts together a great little geek-oriented playlist. Give his Live365 station, Superhero Radio, a listen. You may be surprised how many decent songs there are out there based on the cape & tights crowd (XTC wrote a song about Supergirl? How have I never heard that one before?). The number of “Aquaman’s life sucks” songs alone is pretty astounding (in that there’s, you know, more than one).
