Still so pumped on John Hurt being a Doctor.
Mother’s Day card for the mother. Her kiddies plus grandkiddies.
The art was inspired pretty directly from Scott Cambell’s stuff. Check out his book, his stuff is adorkable: http://www.amazon.com/The-Great-Showdowns-Scott-Campbell/dp/1781162778/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=3FQI0QAZXPG06&coliid=I1KJSK1VAU0E4F
Had to make a wallpaper to commemorate tonight’s (4/08/13) AMAZING Raw, which gave us moments like this one.
The first chapter of The Bell Tower is nearly complete, go catch up!
Another panel tease comparing Nomad Tofu’s webcomic iteration to the forthcoming, “final edit” book edition.
Lots of love. Lots… and lots of love…
There’s a new write-up about a new area in Nomad Tofu called Green Bow. We talk a bit about inspiration, design philosophy and what’s behind a name. Check it out.
So today is 3/16, or as wrestling fans have deemed it, “Stone Cold Appreciation Day.” I want to take you back to 1998. I was eleven years old, up way past my bedtime secretly listening on scrambled Pay-Per-View to an iconic King of the Ring broadcast - the one that would be known for the Undertaker throwing Mankind off a 16 foot steel cage. More importantly though, I had just heard that my childhood hero Steve Austin had dropped his WWF Championship to Kane in a First Blood match. It was devastating.
We jump to the next night on RAW IS WAR. For reasons that escape me, Austin has been granted a rematch with Kane for the belt. It’s rare for title matches, especially WWF Championship matches, to happen on TV. That’s what the PPV’s are for, after all. I was ecstatic, and once again found myself up way past my bedtime.
Looking back now I realize that this match, albeit not the greatest in the world, encapsulates the Attitude Era for me. Matches like this are how eleven year old kids fall in love with wrestling.
