    So, the link to “Sarah Bessey” goes to “Brett McCraken”. Just FYI.
    Want to know where I can see the simulcast from last night
    on The Fashion of Occupy Wall Street. It didn’t pull up for me.

  • Oh man–I knew I shouldn’t have done this while tired!

    Thanks for the heads up. I will fix those.

    The simulcast should be posted on Trinity’s website in the next day or so. I don’t think they have posted it yet.

  • @Erin – On first blush 218 out of 315.

  • Elise

    Thanks Drew for these…great articles and info on what’s happening around us.

  • I might have gotten more, but couldn’t commit to a guess. E.g. is that Spider-Man? It doesn’t look like Spider-Man, but it probably is. I didn’t count that toward my final number of correct guesses.

  • A second pass through puts me at 236 (aka 75%). Another I can’t decide on: is that Moonwalker Michael Jackson? How would one know?

  • @Erin: 201 on my first run-through.

  • happy bloody halloween all

  • Happy Halloween to you too. My daughter and I are going as Ponyo and Koichi. It will be fishtastic.

  • @Seth / @Jason > nice scores! I came in at a 49%. :(

  • It absolutely helps to know your comics. At least 51 are straight out of comics. 2 from newspaper strips. And the great thing about comics is that they mostly appear as teams. Knowing the Teen Titans nets you 6, Watchmen nets you 7. X-Men 5. Fantastic Four and Avengers net you 4 each. And so on. Those numbers add up.

    If there is one lesson to be learn here it is this: Read More Comics For A Happier Life.
