Tom Strong in a Music Video
(don't blink or you'll miss it)!

Indie or Alternative or whatever rock band (and former Ohioans) The National just released a music video for their song "Terrible Love" which was filmed on the band's current tour. Xan and I saw them play here in Columbus a couple of months ago, so I watched the video hoping to spot some live footage filmed at that show. About 50 seconds in, there's a scene with one of the band members hanging out in a comic shop. I will now shamefacedly admit (again) that anytime I see some piece of film or video of a comic shop I try to spot one of my own books on the racks (I posted about this a while back when Xan spotted a copy of a Tom Strong trade paperback on Big Bang Theory--click HERE for that). I can't be the only comics guy who does that...but if I am, then you are welcome to call me pathetic...Anyway, I spotted a copy of the After Watchmen...What's Next? version of Tom Strong #1 over on the left side of the frame. I've posted the video above and some screencaps below along with the comic's cover. Enjoy!

T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents Cover

Pictured above is the finished color cover for T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents #3, on sale 01/12 /11. I had high hopes for this cover when I started it, but it doesn't look like the image I had in my head. Inks and colors are nice, though! Oh, time...

YouTube Review/Overview of Tom Strong
Just saw the following today:

A nice fan review/overview of the series, especially if you've never read the original comics. It's heavy on images from the first four issues and includes a lot of artwork by Arthur Adams from his short story in Tom Strong #4. The reviewer is incorrect about one thing, though: while we had several stand alone one issue stories over the course of the series, there were many multiple-issue story arcs, including issues #2-7 right at the start. Hopefully that won't be too off-putting for new readers.

Did I just review a review? Oh, well...
