This is the first time I’ve included any reference to a character that isn’t my own creation, and I fear the Power Girl reference is a little two obscure. If you don’t know who she is, do a Google image search, and I’m sure you’ll understand why Gary wants to see her in person… I was considering making up a character name to use, but got stuck on the name Boob-erella and thought it was too ‘on the nose’
This is something a little different from what I normally talk about. This time, its Ralf the Destroyer. This is a strip by Scott Lincoln about an alien named Ralf who is sent to destroy Earth, but has a difficult time actually pushing the button.
I stumbled across the strip sometime last year and have been following it ever since. Just last week I picked up a mini-comic Scott had made, which serves as Ralf’s origin story. What makes this something new for me is that this was pretty much my first digitally downloaded comic. I was leery about buying a digital one instead of a hard copy as I didn’t know how it would be to read it. It works well on my iPhone, and would probably better on a tablet. I’ll maybe be buying more digital copies of books, especially with the big reboot going on at Marvel and DC. But more on that later…
