At one point or another in our lives we’ve all appreciated cartoon characters.

Comics, Sports

To coincide with the beginning of the NBA season, Marvel and ESPN collaborated on an edition of ESPN the Magazine showing members of the NBA as different characters from the Marvel Universe.  While I disagreed with some of their choices, it got me to thinking – what athletes match up with which superheroes?

Sticky Comics

Artwork, Bizarre, Cartoons, Comics, Humor

Oh look, it’s another piece on post-it notes.  This one, however, is different – mostly because the artist is a good friend of mine, and also because she’s insanely talented and I wanted to showcase her work, all of which she draws herself on post-it notes and other handy pieces of paper.
