If I'd known about this earlier, I'd have included it in the list of links in yesterday's column. But I didn't, so here it is now. Call it a coda to Brian's list of cool comics sites.
I've already mentioned the Wold Newton site, which reconciles the continuities of various literary and pulp characters into a (kinda) coherent whole, and also occasionally done some fan-speculation of my own about television and pulp-magazine characters here and here.
I should have realized that someone would be doing this for comics, but I didn't. However, I know now, and I'm pleased to share with you all the vastly entertaining "How Would You Fix...?" site. They engage in the same kind of scholarly speculation as the Wold Newton folks do, except it's all about Marvel comics.

Fun stuff, at least if you're as nerdy as I am and get a big kick out of this time-honored tradition. I do.
I was just telling Julie the other day about how I missed old-school fanzines. I'm old enough to remember stuff like Mark Gruenwald's Omniverse, so this site hits me where I live. I'm glad to see this kind of thing making a comeback. Check it out.
Yes, this is what I do on my Fourth of July weekend. (Come on, like any of you are surprised.)
See you next week.
