Bailey of END TIMES took Al Schroeder, the creator of MINDMISTRESS, up on his request for other webcomic artists to redraw one of his pages. You can see the results here. (please note there is a link both on the page, and if you click on the picture it will take you to END TIMES also.)
It's fan art with a difference, and a quite delightful way to see other artist's takes on some of the original characters. On his Alternative Pages Al Schroeder invites any other interested and talented artists to similarly take one of the MINDMISTRESS pages and redraw it in his or her own style.

As we as webcartoonists struggle for recognition and appreciation, it's always interesting to see how our predecessors had to deal with some of the same issues we do.
So I was stunned to run across this story. It describes a proposed first-class, A-list Batman movie to be done by cinematic legend Orson Wells (yes, of Citizen Kane and War of the Worlds) in the mid '40's. And check out the list of actors signed to play the villians!!!
It also describes the difficulties in the mainstream perception of comics, not only in completing the movie, but also in keeping the extensive archive of preproduction work from the public for so long.
