Secret Wars II Continues In This Issue
As part of CRAZY CROSSOVER MULTI-BLOG LIMITED SERIES TIE-IN, I feel duty-bound to alert you to a recent post over at the mighty Secret Fun Blog.
Y’see, over a year ago Kirk posted an old ad that I’d nearly forgotten (“Chimp Artist Will Paint For You!”), but which had captivated my imagination as a kid. As a direct result of some of the info passed along in the comments for that post, I ended up buying a pair of supercool paintings made by Cheeta the Chimp which now grace my bedroom walls & give me no end of delight. After emailing Kirk again to express my thanks (they really are pretty rad), he casually mentioned that he’d one day like to see all the other junk I might’ve collected & hung up around the house.
Well a project like that sounded kinda cool to me, and to be honest I figured if I did it first I could more easily coax him into doing the same in return (based on what little he HAS shared I’m confident that it’d be worth it — this public “calling out” is merely phase two of my plan). So yeah, even though the idea had to fester and turn around in my brain for over a year I eventually got it together and took the snaps (figuring that for the end of the story and mostly happy to cross one more item off my mental “to do” list — my head seems to work on a one-for-one basis at times and to make room for a new idea an old one must be acted upon).
Well THEN, thanks to what I will assume was something of a momentary lapse of judgement, Kirk asked if he might actually be able to share the gallery with his readers on the always-awesome Secret Fun Blog.
What happened next? Sorry, but in true crossover fashion you’re just gonna have to follow this link to read the rest of the story…
