so in all my excitement to get the trivia challenge going and post the answers--see below--i almost lost track of the numbering here on the blog and almost missed this one---PERHAPA-BLOG 600!!
i really can't believe that i've posted 600 blogs.
that's crazy.

and so today, as a kinda celebration, i thought i'd post a few things to excite and entice, to whet your respective appetites for our super scary PERHAPANAUTS HALLOWEEN SPOOKTACULAR no.1 coming out this october!

so here's your spoiler alert, for brian and anyone else who would rather not look--
below are the first few unlettered pages from two of our halloween stories with art by our pal, rich woodall, and my old volleyball teammate and comics legend, fred hembeck!!
i hope you enjoy them!

our friend, alison, has sent me a lot of great emails lately, but this one was just amazing! and inspirational!
you can see the joy on everyone's faces just to be a part of something so beautiful!


lauren monardo is a fantastic artist whose praises i sang here on the blog a few weeks ago. she, along with her writer-partner, stephen lindsay, produce the electric, eclectic, and erudite comic, "the slightly askew adventures of ham and eggs". it is about a pig in a world of talking animals set on solving a murder case...before becoming a victim himself!!
lauren has been both kind enough to agree to doing a back-up story with me and patient enough to put up with my constant delays in getting her a script, but sent me this crazy clip of choopie giving something a zap to nudge me along!

thanks so much, lauren! it's awesome!
and to see the complete strip, head over to lauren's site at:

Congratulations on hitting such a momentous mile stone, Todd.

Hmmm, not sure if I posted a reply to all those posts, but a select few have two or three replies from me, so I might just be in the 600 club as well.

Thanks for the Spoiler warning as I was able to quickly page down, but the quick glimpse I got has me looking forward to that Halloween special even more.

As for the picture of the kitty, that is one unhappy looking cat. It is my experience that cat's do not like to get "dressed up" by us.

Those pages look great. Rich did an awesome job. I can't wait to see that story. And Fred's looks hilarious. I'm psyched to see his version of the team. It's like the good old Marvel days. That's so cool.

Denis said...

Woo! Full 600! Nice!

Sorry for leaving everyone in limbo for a little longer than expected. I was hoping to post the answers earlier, but got distracted by friends. Pesky friends... Anyway, the two you've all been holding you breath for-

1) Typhoon and... CYCLONE! Yeah, everyone says monsoon, but the answer was cyclone.

2) Just the one, the pyramids. The other six are the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, Statue of Zeus at Olympia, Temple of Artemis at Ephesus, Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, Colossus of Rhodes and Lighthouse of Alexandria. Not a Sphinx or Coliseum to be seen!!

Here's to 600 more, Todd! Best wishes,


todd said...
