If youâ€™re a fan of action, adventure, and piracy of most noble vintage, you may be interested in Captain Blood â€” an adaptation of the classic novel by Rafael Sabatini, written by me and illustrated by Mike Shoyket.

This thread makes me wonder how many gags I have inadvertantly ripped off over the years, and how the Long Arm of the Internet may judge me for posterity.
Granted Iâ€™ve never (knowingly) cut-and-pasted punchlines, or at least when I have itâ€™s been pretty obvious pastiche/tribute stuff, but itâ€™s a bit nervewracking to see one of the webcomic longbeards get raked over the coals like that.

Well, mixed feelings here.
This is obviously the end of Man-Man, after nearly a decade of Internet-driven madness. I probably shouldnâ€™t say â€œthe end,â€ because James and I may well decide to revisit the world and its characters, but knowing my own track record for following up on dropped projects, I have to be honest and say that there isnâ€™t a huge potential for more runs at olâ€™ Drake.

Man-Man meets â€” Man-Man? How is this possible? Is it a dream? A hoax? An imaginary story?* Orâ€¦ NONE OF THE ABOVE? Tune in Monday!
*Beyond, you know, the context of all of this being an imaginary story. Itâ€™s not an â€œimaginary story within this imaginary story.â€ Come on, people.

Through a series of events starting with news that MAD magazine is scaling back, I stumbled across the blog of MAD illustrator Tom Richmond, which in turn talks about his other current work, including production work for a movie called â€œSuper Capers,â€ with a protagonist named â€” pause for geeky effect â€” Ed Gruberman.

Isnâ€™t that true of most things?

Due to some weird perpetual problem with the Man-Man WordPress install, I have to disable all plugins every time I want to post on the blog â€” and in the 10 minutes it took me to write the last post, seven pieces of spam popped up in the comments section.
This is NOT that popular a site, either. I canâ€™t imagine how hard those spam spiders must work 24/7 to try to get this stuff out there.

Iâ€™m hard pressed to think of any time anyone called *-Man â€œManuel,â€ except for during the very clever Tick live-action show about a decade back. Iâ€™m getting old!
