Beland’s Fantastic Writing


Funny how stuff turns out sometimes.

I’d actually bought the comic above hoping my wife might be able to use it in her bilingual 1st grade classroom. (Turned out to be a bit old for her kids. I tried.)

I really liked the art, but I don’t speak Spanish, so it had taken up temporary residence on my scanner-top pile of mystery.

Then Mike Lynch emails me this morning:

Tom Beland — doing a Fantastic Four comic?!?!?!?!?!

More here.

I gotta go buy this one ….

I had no idea! And I absolutely LOVE Tom’s True Story, Swear To God stuff!

I gotta find the English version! And QUICK!

Harvey Funday Cartoon Playing Cards on Flickr

2008 01 01 05 58 40.Pdf000

I picked up another deck of cartoon playing cards and posted them over at Flickr.

They’re Harvey Cartoons, and the game is apparently played like Authors, the next step in card game evolution after Go Fish crawls onto the beach.

There’s no copyright date anywhere to be seen, and the cards have a sorta curvy shape “to fit small hands.” (You know, for kids. And carnies.)

I don’t pretend to be any kind of cartoon historian, so anyone know why no Richie Rich or Casper?
