I can haz Marvel?  Recently, several artists and cartoonists, including Ryan Penagos (Marvel.com Editor), Chris Eliopoulos, Katie Cook, Skottie Young, and Mike Maihack, have been creating drawings of popular Marvel characters as cats (and the occasional dog).  If you’re on Twitter (and really who isn’t), follow the hashtag #mrvlcats to see more as they’re posted, […]

Superhero Alphabet

Cartoons, Comics

You can buy the print here. Bonus points if you can identify all of the letters of this superhero alphabet. If you can’t figure out the letter Y, here is the answer. I also give big props for giving Cyclops the letter C, especially when it would have been more politcally correct to give it […]
