Where no blog has gone before...


William Shatner was retweeting some covers last night - he even sent one to Lynda Carter!

That’s FAME! Congratulations!

I have tickets for a convention in June. The scheduled guests are William Shatner, Lou Ferrigno, Margot Kidder and Marc McClure. Does that lineup inspire any cover ideas?

Wayne Allen Sallee said...

Holy... Crap,.. Ross. (Say it like Kirk!)

@Bob Buethe: perhaps Jimmy Olsen trying to convince a confused Hulk that Lois Lane is _not_ Betty Ross (while simultaneously blocking Kirk's line of phaser fire)?

Clearly Shat loves your covers, Ross. Maybe one day he might even post a comment on them. (Who knows? Maybe he already has, Anonymously!)

Maybe if I ever go to a convention with him as guest, I'll print one out and ask him to autograph it -- especially if his teammate is on the guest list as well.

And him tweeting them can only mean more viewers!

Ross said...

Unfortunately he was retweeting someone who cut and pasted the covers rather than use the twitter link, and did not credit me or the blog. I included a link in the comments but the posts were 15 hours old by then.

Bob Greenwade said...

Fie on that cut-and-paster! For such a person there should be no retweet! #BadPunNoCookie

But still, at least you got a little extra exposure.

WOW! how extraordinary Captain Kirk himself has commented on them! sucks there was no link to the blog in the original tweet that guy did to shatner but at least he commented and RT'd your covers (and the 'Super Team Family' logo is on all the covers). funny that the Kirk/WonderWoman one pretty much became last years movie! (best keep an eye on Lynda Carters tweets - see if she responds)

Glenn Host said...

I wonder if Shatner will suggest you do a novel crossover cover between TekWar and another book.

Cary Comic said...

I second Glenn's motion. My recommendation for the second book? A novelization of the episode (from Spielberg's AMAZING STORIES)...

Oh, there's a Mad magazine cover just waiting to happen!

yet again, in the link above, Trekweb post the cover to their thousands of followers without giving any credit whatsoever, It's so easy to use the FB and Twitter links, but folks go out of their way to cut and paste the images full size to avoid giving credit, I'll never understand why.

they must just take from other Tweets reddit FB etc they see about or search on Google image, they don't bother to find where the images come from. Think that's pretty much the way for all images tweeted etc not many pics get credited and can go viral to the tune of 100k when they've just taken it from somewhere else. then they originator has to chime in with 'hey thats mine'😡
