December 20, 2005: Superstuff

So here are two superheroic recommendations that have nothing, nothing whatsoever, to do with GURPS Powers. They're just neat.

First: Tom Smith has a new album out. It's called The Last Hero on Earth, and you can get it on his site. If you're not already a fan of the World's Fastest Filker, this one might just do it for you. I am listening RIGHT NOW to "Pirate Ninjas from Dino Island" and giggling. "We've all got pterodactyls where our parrots ought to be . . ." Tom has way too much fun.

The way he works this is: for $20, you can get the download now AND get the actual CD as soon as they're burned. Instant gratification AND hardcopy.

Second: A relatively new webcomic is "Evil, Inc.", by Brad Guigar. Simple premise: an aging supervillain goes legit. Kind of. He incorporates, because a megacorporation can be even more evil than a sup-er-crook. But then he hires a lot of super-crooks anyway . . .

It's just getting started, but it shows promise - and he pulled a nice little twist on us just yesterday.
