Draw Dollar Bill Day

Me and Val
Once upon a time, superhero teams had mascots. The Avengers had Rick Jones. The Justice League of America had Snapper Carr. And, for a very brief time, The Defenders had Dollar Bill. Okay, maybe Dollar Bill wasn't their official mascot, but that trendy, indy filmmaker stuck around the famous non-team long enough to make an impact. Brash and bombastic, Dollar Bill (real name: Aaron English) was also annoying, self-centered, and basically a big mouth. Despite all that, today we honor the bearded putz with "Draw Dollar Bill Day"!*
For my entry, I have Dollar Bill taking a Polaroid selfie in 1979 with Valkryie in the background.
The always awesome Dale Martin has Dollar Bill meeting his match!
Dollar Bill was created by David Anthony Kraft and Keith Giffen.
* If some of those words sound familiar, I pulled a Shia Labeouf and copied them from this post!

Last Sunday's Comic Haul (12/15/13)

Astro City #7
Hellboy in Hell #5
SpongeBob Comics #27
The Fox #2
The Walking Dead #118
Purchased at Bob's Comic Castle. Total cost: $17.07
Notes- I thought the second issue of The Fox was an improvement over the first. The art was always great, but I wasn't too impressed with the writing for some reason. This issue won me over...Is there a reason Sandy Cheeks doesn't appear more often in SpongeBob Comics? I thought she was a major supporting character or am I wrong about that?...This haul's winner? Hellboy with Astro City nipping at his heels (Or should I say "hells"?).
She-Fox was redesigned by Dean Haspiel, but she remains a Red Circle/Archie Comics character.

A Sign of Things to Come

Shoemaker and His Wife
If you're planning on seeing Julie Lyn Barber's The Elves and The Shoemaker on December 14 and 21 at the Farmland Center then expect to see something like this on stage. By the by, that's me on the left as the Shoemaker's Wife and that's Kasey Cummins (a.k.a. "Princess") on the right as the Shoemaker.

The Return of The Elves and The Shoemaker

The Elves and The Shoemaker 2013
If anyone out there has the urge to see me dress in drag then this show is for you! I play the Shoemaker's Wife. Here's the info:
Historic Farmland USA in partnership with The Panto Project will present The Elves and The Shoemaker, A Children’s Panto Theatre on December 14 & 21, 2013 at 1:00pm. The performances will be at The Farmland Center, 100 N. Main Street in Downtown Farmland. Tickets are $5 per person. Reservations are recommended and payment can be made at the door. More information is available by calling 765-468-7631 or e-mailing darrinfarmland@aol.com.
The Elves and The Shoemaker is a one-hour children’s play based on the story by the Brothers Grimm. Professional and local actors team up with shadow puppets to tell the story of the kind Shoemaker and his Wife whose difficult life is made easier by some mysterious helpers who make shoes in the night. True to the panto style, there is a Good Fairy who keeps the audience informed and involved, a bad guy who is trying to interfere with the hero’s happiness, and a comedy duo who keep everyone’s spirits light. Of course, by Christmas Day, good triumphs over evil (with help from the audience and a little magic) and everyone learns a lesson in charity.
The play is written by Julie Lyn Barber, a playwright living in Parker City.
For ticket and information call 765-468-7631, visit www.farmlandindiana.org or e-mail darrinfarmland@aol.com.
