cop a load of the MIGNOLA cover for the DARK HORSE TWENTY book

Here's a fun image from the upcoming (twenty five cents) anniversary comic coming up from Dark Horse. The solicitation text: "By Arthur Adams, Sergio Aragonés, Bob Burden, Paul Chadwick, Adam Hughes, Frank Miller, Tony Millionaire, Cary Nord, Eric Powell, Stan Sakai, Matt Wagner, Chris Warner, Joss Whedon and others, cover by Mike Mignola. Eric Powell draws Star Wars, Adam Hughes draws Hellboy, and Joss Whedon makes his artistic debut -- that's just a smidge of what's included in this 25-cent gift to all the fans who've supported Dark Horse Comics through our first twenty years!
Dark Horse Comics is proud to present Dark Horse Twenty Years, a collection of original art by a distinguished list of Dark Horse creators, past and present. Every page holds a different piece, each showcasing a character from the company's history of great original and licensed properties. Instead of drawing their own creations, these jaw-dropping talents have traded characters, each offering an unexpected take on one of the icons of Dark Horse.
Legends of comics drawing the characters you'd never expect. You won't see this much talent in the same place for another 20 years!"

Sounds like it's well worth twenty five cents of anyone's money. Fingers crossed for Frank Miller drawing Drinky Crow!

Or my all time fave quote, which I haven't scanned 'Who *is* that floating fatboy?' Alas, people look at me odd when I use that line. Go figure.

Off-topic, but the worst guitar solo - worse than that Cash song by far is 2:20 seconds into 'Rip It Up' by Orange Juice.
Ohh it's a stinker. I suspect they thought they were being ironic. But it's a stinker.

"Dude, I'm your dad": great stuff, I've watched a lot of dodgy Star Wars fan movies and animations on this thar interweb, and that's among the best.

Can't think of that Orange Juice guitar solo at the moment, but I'm sure I've that track on a compilation somewhere, so I'll check it out sometime.

And Marc - did you see the photo story Flaming Carrot Burden did? Typically half-arsed,funny, shit.
