This has got some good stuff, but I would like to see a team of old-school letterers with pitchforks and torches storming the front yard of whoever wrote “never hand write dialogue”. POPPYCOCK.

An excellent point. Some of my favorite webcomic artists actually hand-letter their strips, so there are definitely people still doing it.

The important thing, whether you use a font or hand-letter, is that your lettering is legible.

Yes, that I can agree with. :)

So what is the expiration date on haunting? Like, you only ever see ghost hunters in old mansions and jails from the last 500 years or so. Like, are there mesoamerican ghosts? What about caveman ghosts? If somebody dies and becomes a ghost thousands of years ago, and somebody else dies and becomes a ghost on the same ground, do they just hang out and be like Bartholemew and Ugg the Ghost Bros?

I don’t know

I would totally read about the adventures of Bartholemew and Ugg.

Holy Moses, I want to make this comic so bad right now

"ARTIST BOLDLY REIMAGINES DISNEY PRINCESS AS A PILE OF ROCKS" 

You’ve never seen them like this before. Mind blown!

Is it sad that I really kind of like it when K-Bo is 150% done with an art trend?

Hey, I was simply mining for things that haven’t been done with these characters and left no stone unturned. ;P

Wow! There’s been a lot of coverage on these silly things. I would share some of the news articles here but I wouldn’t want to turn this blog into….

…a rock tumblr.

Kbo wins the internet. Everyone else can go home

Some good stuff in here.
