That BoingBoing Bounce
It’s common knowledge that once a comics-related site appears on BoingBoing, its hits rise exponentially. So congratulations to both Ward Sutton, whose recent New York Times slideshow analyzing political posters and campaign logos (see example at right) got a mention this morning, and the very amusing Comic Book Periodic Table, saluted last week. BoingBoing notes that the latter site, a projeect from two chemistry profs at the University of Kentucky, "provides a cross-reference to mentions of various elements in a wide variety of funnybooks." Naturally there are a lot of Metal Men pages involved, but also Spidey comics, Richie Rich refs, even Tintin! And if anybody out there knows of a comic book page that mentions cerium or cesium, do contact them!
