Twitter makes strange bedfellows of me and Missy Elliott: My stuffy white dude avatar could not be more appropriate. Via triskaidekaphobia.
Comic artist Francesco Francavilla has a number of commission sketches on his website, including this sweet drawing of Captain America. I definitely recommend browsing his site (and buying his books!) as well as his blog Pulp Sunday, where he posts a pulp-inspired illustration each week.

AMC has released the first image of the Zombie invasion of Atlanta from the filming of The Walking Dead : More images, including the first picture of series protagonist Rick Grimes, at AICN. Via Spinoff Online. If you haven't read Robert Kirkman's excellent Walking Dead comics, I recommend them highly [available at Amazon].
After a year off in 2009, Athens Popfest returns August 10-14. I'm pretty excited about it, as my professional life has prevented me from seeing much live music lately. I'm particularly excited about veteran acts The Apples in Stereo, Mission of Burma, Oh-OK, and Your Heart Breaks, along with local favorites Madeline and Grape Soda. Show More Summary
Preach it, Conan. From Conan the Barbarian: The Official Marvel Comics Adaptation of the Movie (1982); art by John Buscema. Apparently it took a $1 paperback from Bizarro Wuxtry to get me posting here again. And away we go....
As may be apparent, I haven't been jazzed about a lot of new music lately. This week, however, I was introduced to an artist to watch. Sourpatch are a young band from San Jose, and they have a record on Athens label HHBTM Records.

I watched the great documentary on the 1974 Ali-Foreman fight in Zaire, When We Were Kings, tonight and was surprised when a Marvel comic made a quick cameo. Not only did 1974's Werewolf By Night #23 make an appearance, but it was being read by James Brown. Hell yes.The Godfather of Soul clearly digs his werewolves.
