I don’t think people give Flash enough credit.
Dis lil disrespectful ass “My dolly was in there” and “My dolly had blonde hair” Lol I would of spun her in circles just enough to make her fall down.
You’re right Flash deserves ALOT more credit than what he gets he’s not just someone who runs fast.
When I mention my top 5 favorite superheroes… Batman and Superman are not even in that list: Magneto, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern, and Nightcrawler… in that order.

Please don’t remove the artist’s caption/comment when you reblog a drawing/comic/etc.
I obviously can’t speak for everyone, but in my case the caption is often an addition to the joke, and if you take it away, you take away a part of my comic.
So this turned up at a really relevant time. I met many lovely people at CAKE this last weekend. Some of them approached my table to tell me how much they’d enjoyed my Oh Joy, Sex Toy guest strip a few weeks ago. Being able to draw that strip for Erika Moen meant the world to me, so hearing from folks who read and enjoyed it was a real thrill.
This thing that frustrated me was how many, many others expressed surprise when it came up in conversation. “Oh! You did that? I had no idea! I just saw it floating around Tumblr. Did you know it’s got 20,000 notes now?”
The version posted online was stripped of the panels containing both Erika’s and my URLs (in fairness to the OP, a caption with credits was added, but let’s be honest: Tumblr eats captions for breakfast), so there was no way for those who saw the image out of context to link it to OJST, Erika, or myself.
I’ve seen that version passed around prominent Tumblr outlets, well-known BDSM Twitter accounts, and many other places — and while astute fans will occasionally point out where the credit should go, there are many, many instances where this doesn’t take place.
(Also: this comic nails the feeling I had about seeing the narrative flow of my original piece disrupted because panels we’re missing. INTERNET, WHY DO YOU DISMEMBER MY BABY?)
On the one hand, it’s hard to get too worked up about this stuff, but when I saw this comic (almost identical to one I’d considered making earlier today to try and create constructive change from my experience), I thought it was the right time to bring it up.
When an artist includes a URL or any sort of personal information in their comic or illustration work, do them the service of leaving it alone. It may not be relevant to the aesthetic of your blog, but for people like me who make their living from creative work (and especially through word-of-mouth on the Internet), it can make an enormous difference!
Do right by your artists, Tumblr.
