Tom the Dog's You Know What I Like?
A blog about all that is worthy in the Culture we call Pop. TV, Comics, Movies, TV, Music, Books, and a little TV as well. Updated every day, in a perfect world. The same world where Robert Redford, Warren Beatty, Kevin Costner and Mel Gibson had not all won Best Director Oscars before Martin Scorsese, J.D. Salinger had been as prolific as Stephen King, and Whoopi Goldberg was locked away where she could never hurt anyone ever again.

Good Cop and Bad Cop left for the day. I'm a different kind of cop.
What am I doing tonight? I'm getting ready to watch the
I assume you are doing the same.
Thanksgiving preparations may prevent me from writing about The Shield's finale in a timely manner, but rest assured I'll be reading all of your posts on the matter, and will eventually pitch in my own two cents as well. Now, go! Watch!

Awesome Comics A to Z: The Answers
I'm posting this answer key a little earlier than I thought I would, since you smart readers of this blog have already nailed all 26 letters in my Awesome Comics A to Z quiz. Well played!
Nobody took the email challenge and tried to name 20 or more comics, but I appreciate that you limited your individual responses in the comments in order to let as many people as possible play along before the quiz was entirely solved. Maybe I'll do this again and only take email answers, to make a real contest out of it! Then again, maybe not. I'm fickle.
EDIT: Two people emailed me after I set this entry up to auto-post. So kudos to Jeff Kulisek, who got 17 correct, and Satyajit C, who got a very impressive 20 correct! Both of those scores are probably better than I would've done if I hadn't designed the quiz myself!
Oh, and looking backward for a moment, when I gave you the answers to the Awesome Movies A to Z quiz, you were clear on the fact that you could click on the letters to see the original movie posters, right? I didn't give you the answers to L and S, since nobody had guessed them, but if you clicked on the L and S in the answer key, you'd have seen the posters for Lawrence of Arabia and Sunset Boulevard. Just wanted to make sure that loose end was tied up for everybody.
Same thing here: if you want to see the original comic covers from which I took the letters, click on A through Z below. And thanks for playing!
Jonah Hex: Riders of the Worm and Such
The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen
Omaha the Cat Dancer
Reid Fleming: World's Toughest Milkman
Y: The Last Man

Awesome Comics A to Z: The Quiz
As promised last week, here is a new quiz for you. The first letters of 26 comic book logos, from A through Z, are displayed below. You guess which comic each letter comes from. And fun is had by all!
PLEASE NOTE: I don't doubt that there are many among you for whom this quiz is a total slamdunk. So I ask that you limit your guesses in the comments to FIVE TITLES ONLY, to give others a chance to play along. If you want to show off and prove how much you really know about comics, feel free to email me at tomthedog [at] gmail [dot] com, and give me as many answers as you possibly can. I will make special note in tomorrow's entry of those who can guess 20 or more correct!
Now, on with the show:
