Doodle Kuss

Editor's note -- The storming of the Bastille on 14 July 1782 had something to do with the French Revolution. Saturday was the 230th anniversary of Bastille Day.

Der Kuss (The Kiss) Gustav Klimt. 1907-1908

Saturday was also the 150th anniversary of Gustav Klimt's birthday. He had nothing to do with the revolution, but Google made a Doodle of his most famous painting anyway.

A Shout-out to Michael Kupperman!

Editor's note -- Remember the Comic Book Characters post? That was when Michael Kupperman went to New York Comic-Con 2011 in October with his new Mark Twain book. 

The Editor does not know if Michael Kupperman plans to be at San Diego Comic-Con 2012 later this week, but Quantum Mechanix will be, with an exclusive Battlestar Gallactica poster.
Number Six in a Cartoon Moment

Vivid primary colors and the sea of Ben-Day dots that make up our special version of Cylon Number Six, are a shout-out to the famed pop artist, Roy Lichtenstein.

Artist Megan Lara depicts the seductive humanoid Cylon in a pique as she experiences deja vu all over again. This poster, a Comic-Con International 2012 exclusive from QMx, rounds out a four-poster set of other women of Battlestar Galactica, including Starbuck, Athena and Laura Roslin.

Our pop art Six is printed on 18" x 24" 100-pound, satin-finish paper. Powerful, stark and cliché -- with a wink -- for $14.95.
