Added to site, entry #976-980: Hultrasson
, and Jivatijivatipa
from Marcel Remacle and Marcel Denis' series Hultrasson le Viking
One of the first comics I read as a kid, apart from Donald Duck, was Splint & Co (Spirou et Fantasio) and Viktor Viking (Hultrasson). My friend Jan Smed had borrowed them at the library... or rather his mother had... we were only 5 or 6 years old at the time... and I remember reading them at his house. Rereading Viktor Viking for making the articles on Hultrasson after all these years has been a real blast.

In the last many months I've spent a lot of time translating some of my articles. It's about as much fun as having root canal work without anesthesia, and for the life of me, I can't figure out why anyone would do this for a living. Then again, how many people like working in a lab? Heh... Anyway... It has seriously slowed down the generation of new articles. I've also started scanning and translating some comic strips to go with the biographies. It occurred to me to be a good idea with some examples to demonstrate how the character works. Just 2-3 strips per bio, depending on the size, to demonstrate what it's all about and still be within the laws of fair use. The reactions so far have been positive, but if it's actually a good idea remains to be seen.
I just bought the first Legion of Super-Heroes Showcase. Really nice to read those old stories. The Legion is one of the comics I remember reading in the Danish Superboy comics back in the seventies, and I have quite a lot of the US comics from the eighties. With the change after the Crisis, the clones from the nineties and the reboot not so long ago, the Legion is a real mess to keep track of, so I thought I'd start some biographies on these characters, and flesh them out as I go along. This also fills out a lot of the blanks in my knowledge.

I've launched what I affectionally call The WeirdSpace Initiative
. Basically it's a chance for all creators and publishers to get their characters displayed on my site. I would like to display as much diversity as possible but I don't have enough time, and there is a lot of really cool stuff out there from the small publishers and web comics that deserves some attention. The first to respond to the offer was Bart A. Thompson from Approbation Comics, so that's where I'm starting.
