ComicVine is all about community, and you guys are always super-busy putting out some super-rad stuff onto the site. So, isn't it about darn time we highlight some of this super-awesomeness? And who better to do it than your second favorite ComicVine member turned Staff member? (First being Babs obviously!) Here's some of the awesome stuff we got to see this week Around the Vine. Click on the links to check out their news-worthy moments.
== TEASER ==
- mutantblues breaks down the newest issue of Mark Millar's CLiNT magazine. When I say break it down, I mean mutantblues really breaks it down, section by section.
- CV Moderator Icarusflies wrote a cool piece on what she likes and dislikes in writers... but more importantly, what it means to be a good writer.
- LuisEscobar is on part 14 of "How to make a motion comic" series. Lots of cool info, and he's got some real great artistic talent. Very informational stuff!
- Although we haven't seen any video reviews from "them" this past week, haydenclareheroes has done a quite a few "Comic Duo" video reviews and posted them on the site. Maybe they're taking the week off.
- Ryonslaught compiled a list of super-heroes/villains that are the kids of other super-heroes/villains. Luckilly, he didn't add M2 characters, or his list would have been a million times longer.
- ImperiousRix knows quite a bit about the Justice League animated series, and he's showcasing his knowledge in a three part list: "Top 15 Justice League Episodes."
- A mystery is afoot! Who is going to be the new Hobgoblin? The Hobgoblin has some ideas in his new list. Check it out and remember, if he calls it correctly, we all owe him a dollar! (Not a binding contract)
ReviewsWe have two featured reviews this week, and they're both X-Force books.
ArtCheck out FoxxFireArt's blog area where he posts all his anime-inspired comics!
RalfvdH did a cool speed-painting of the Joker.
EGoD continues to put out some quality artwork in his Ta Da! My Art thread.
Artist Showdown #68 is taking place. Draw Purgatori... Now that's a selection out of left field!
- First super-user showcase goes to Decept-O! Decept-O was a big help for us for this list, and aside from that, he does some great artwork on the site! He's incredibly helpful, nice, and helps add to the fun atmosphere on the site. Check out his blog area for some cool images of the staffers as zombies, and his on-going comicvine comic about Red LAMP.
As you may know, last week was the Outrageous "Draw Comic Vine's Staff" Contest featuring that goofy video of Tom Pinchuk and myself telling you to draw us, minus the sexiness. We're still figuring out who is the true champion out of all the great pictures, but we've compiled them all here for you.
Decept-O also joined in the fun, his pictures are located above.
If you find something in the CV Community you think is super-cool and noteworthy, PM me, and maybe you'll see it next week! Thanks to sora_thekey and KrHunt for help this week!
