[blogs] A couple of interesting comics-related posts on Metafilter …
- Like Snopes, But For Comics … Metafilter post on comics ‘urban legends’. For example, which Pet Shop Boy was a Marvel Editor?
- Defining the Mentalist in Fundamentalist … this post links to Stewart Lee’s TV program on blasphamy in comedy which is available on YouTube. The post includes a fabulous description of Alan Moore as ‘a strikingly hirsuite man in the manner of a wilderness prophet.’
- They Saved Hitler’s Self-Hating Jewish Sea-Monkeys … another comics urban legend… The twisted man behind those Sea-Monkeys and X-Ray Specs adverts in comics. From the post: ‘I think there’s some subclause to Godwin whereby the phrase “Sea-Monkeys” un-Godwins any post.’
