Nor did I put up an art post yesterday. I don't have a good excuse for that. I went to church, then took myself out to breakfast before spending the next few hours putzing about on the computer. In the afternoon I went to see Iron Man 2, and then went home and spent yet more time putzing about on the computer. So why didn't I do an art post? Beats me. Didn't really occur to me.
But I have rectified the situation, having just now made backdated poetry and art posts. Since the San Diego Comic-Con was going on this weekend, I decided to go with a comics theme. The poem is by Norm Breyfogle, who was one of the main Batman artists in the late 80s and early 90s. I always liked his take on the characters and his storytelling ability, and was disappointed when he moved on. More recently, he's been drawing the "new look" Archie comics you may have heard about. Anyway, he also writes poetry, so check that out if you're so inclined.
The art post is arguably the most famous work of comics-related art ever made, so I don't really have anything to say about it other than to point out that it was inspired by a panel from All-American Men of War #89, published in 1962 by DC Comics. If you're of the opinion that Lichtenstein was merely a copier, take a look at both the original and his interpretation of it to be disabused of that notion.
