First off, I just wanted to thank everyone for coming to the site, as of today I’ve gotten 5,007 hits since the site launched in April. I hope you guys are enjoying this as much as I am. I was planning on updating the site away from the basic Blogger template, but since I’m no longer employed, that will have to wait. Do keep an eye out for a brand new logo coming your way soon and a few other original art do-dads.
A lot’s been going on and I’m still playing catch up, but I wanted to link to a few things I’ve seen on the net lately.

Over on Enemy of Peanuts, Jim posted some pictures from All Points West, looks like it would have been a lot of fun and I’m super jealous of him for getting to see Jay-Z live even if he was replacing the Beastie Boys. I gotta see Hova one of these days.
Meanwhile, over at The Cool Kids Table, Ben’s been posting like crazy, whether it’s about the original Suicide Squad run (a great book he turned me on to), the X-Men arcade game (in the top 3 up there with TMNT and The Simpsons) or going away presents that former and formerly former ToyFare staffers got (awesome custom toys), it’s all goodness.
