Five artist you didn't like before but you do now

The Comics Reporter asked a question yesterday. What Five artists you didn't appreciate when you were young that you appreciate now. I was too late to put in my 2 cents but here is my list now.
Wayne Boring
Steve Ditko
Jack Kirby
Carmine Infantino
John Romita Jr. (Ok I wasn't very young when I first saw his work. But I didn't like it then but I do now.)
I could do more but I will hold it to five.

Perhaps another interesting question is name five artist that you liked when you were younger but don't like now. Feel free to leave comments on this if you want to. Posted by Picasa

Will The Real Dr. Sivana Please Stand Up ...Oh! You Are Standing.

Mark Evainer reports that there is a Shazam! movie at his site here http://www.newsfromme.com/archives/2006_04_15.html#011340
In it he says that Wallace Shawn would be perfect as Dr. Sivana. I like Mr. Shawn but I really think he would be best if they were going for camp humor. However, if you could make Patrick Stewart look shorter I think he would be better for the role. I also hear that "The Rock" is up for Captain Marvel. That might work as he does look the part. I just hope they give some of the actors from the old saturday morning show a role too. Posted by Picasa

Best Friend 1


Happy Good Friday and Happy Easter. This weekend I will take a break from the Dick Tracy strip I have been posting. In its place I have this cartoon story called Best Friend. It describes in simple terms the reason for Jesus Christ coming to Earth and the reason for His death and 3 days later rising from the dead. I thought that something like this was better for Easter weekend instead of Dick Tracy. You can scroll down and click on each picture to read the entire story. Posted by Picasa

Palm Sunday Hosanna Blessed is the King of Israel

On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem,
Took branches of palm trees and went forth to meet him and cries Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord.
And Jesus, when he had found a young ass, sat thereon; as it is written,
Fear not, daugther of Sion: behold, thy King commeth, sitting on an ass's colt.
The things understood not his disciples at the first: but when Jesus was glorified, then remembered they that these things were written of him, and that they had done these things unto him.
John 12:12-16 King James Version
