Random Quickies: fanart supremacy

A couple of quickies.

The Smallville finale is still on my brain. For those of you who remember the last few minutes, here’s a treat that Dave Willis whipped up a couple of months back. (It only exists on Willis’ blog, by the way. It was originally meant to be published in Toy News International, but they were a little leery about the Challenger content.) It has more to do with a wacky Orange Lantern Lex Luthor toy than the episode, but that doesn’t stop it from being a treat for Smallville fans.


For you Calvin & Hobbes fans out there, the webcomic Pants Are Overrated has a cute strip about older Calvin, older Suzie, and their daughter Bacon (which is kind of an awful thing to name your kid, but which I’m assuming is a reference to Francis Bacon).

This is apparently the second C&H-related strip they did, since everyone loved the first one so much.

  1. Awww the C&H grown up versions are cute!
    You should totally review Shortpacked by the way. I’d be interested to hear your take on it!

  2. bad guy high had the best smallville finale strip in the web
    I support the dumbing of age review, it have been out a while and the archives are not as big

    • Thanks for reminding me of Bad Guy High! I’d planned on reviewing that some time ago, but I completely forgot about it.

      As for Dumbing of Age, I think I’ll wait a while until the archives grow a little.

  3. I could go on about hundreds of things that were annoying in the Smallville finale… But the last two minutes made up for it.

    But if Smallville proved anything, it was that Erica Durance and Micheal Rosenbaum are the best Lex Luthor and Lois Lane ever put on screen. I still have a soft spot for Christopher Reeves as the best Supes… His Clark was a bit better too (sorry Tom).

    • I’d add John Schneider and Annette O’Toole to that list as the definitive John and Martha Kent. They revamped Clark’s parents from a sort of grandfatherly couple into a parents we could recognize. Schneider was especially believable as the sort of man that Clark would try to live up to.

  4. Calvin and Hobbes are sacrosanct, and I fully expected myself to fly into a rage at the audacity of any comic author daring to meddle with them. But this is spot on. He got the art, and more importantly the spirit, of the strip just right. The dude/lady who drew this has earned my unwavering respect. Time to check out the back catalogue!

  5. Ah man, those two C&H fan comics were just beautiful. And pants ARE totally overrated. Have to remember to check the regular comic out…

  6. Love the C&H tribute strips!

  7. Stupidest website ever seen. Screw you.

    • …What?

      • Don’t get too worked up over it. There’s a very good chance that it’s a spam comment. I actually deleted a followup that was simply the e-mail address.

        But… since I have no proof otherwise, and I am very hesitant on deleting comments, I’m keeping it up. Melvin, if indeed you are a real person, please elaborate on why you find this website stupid. Also, leave your email address in the website field. It’s less suspicious that way.

        (If it is spam, it’s very clever. Preying on my instinct to grant everyone the right to criticize. Blah.)
