Month in Review: May 2010

Perhaps as a result of working too hard to be timely in the month of April and adjusting to some major changes in our own lives, May was characterized by thickly veiled filler posts, unapologetic philosophical ramblings, an emphasis on visual art, and an unintentional focus on death and dying. Here's what you may have missed:

- A celebration of Free Comic Book Day

- A random link to a forum for discussing/showing off geeky comic book rooms

- A discussion of consistency issues within this very blog

- Alex's weekly comics news feature/random ramblings spotlight, Waiting for Wednesday, Volume 2, Issues Eighteen, Nineteen, Twenty, and Twenty-One

- Musings on life lessons from Eddie Brock from Spider-Man, and a sort of follow-up about work, dreams, and baseball

- A guide on how to display original comics art

- A spotlight on Super Mario Bros. Crossover, the Flash game we've all hoped for at some point

- A discussion of director J.J. Abrams' apparent philosophy of character death in movies

- A reflection on the death of artist Frank Frazetta

- A review of the feature-length Mega Man fan film by Eddie Lebron

- A reflection on how our blog's recent and inadvertent focus on death

- Rapid-fire comics reviews and lamentations about another power outage

- A link to a website featuring a wealth of fun convention photos

- Reflections on finally having a day off

- Excuses for why we didn't have a review of Iron Man 2 ready

- Brief, scattershot ramblings about blog-related things

- A hypothetical exercise: What if The Empire Strikes Back had never been made?

- A joint review of the film Iron Man 2

- Some really hilarious photos

- An easy poll that you should really check out if you haven't already: Who Reads Exfanding Your Horizons?
