DEAR DINOSAUR - "Crossover Crisis"

Happy Thursday, True Believers!  It's time again for your favorite dino-centric webcomic (unless you prefer the other webcomic about dinosaurs written by the dude who writes the Adventure Time comic, in which case I'm a little disappointed, but I understand)!  This week's Dear Dinosaur is all about bad ideas and generic superheroes!  Head over to to check it out, then come back here for the official commentary!

MAKIN' LISTS MONDAY - The Top 10 Ryan L. Schrodt FAQ

So, in the last week, traffic to my website has literally quadrupled on average each day.  I can only assume this is because of the release of Youngblood #78 last week, which means that a lot of the folks reading this are pretty new to the awesomeness that is Ryan L. Schrodt, Writer of Comics – Destroyer of Worlds.   Since most of you that were around prior to last week have either known me from college or followed me on Twitter for the last few years, I feel like proper introductions are in order.  You can introduce yourself in the comments at the end of this post and I will introduce myself via today’s Top 10 list – The Top 10 Things You Might Want to Know about Ryan L. Schrodt!

YOUNGBLOOD #78 Contest - Update and changes! Enter now!

I’ve received a lot of complaints from friends and followers that were unable to find Youngblood #78 this week, but would like to be entered into the contest, which was set to end tonight at 11:59 PM Central Time.  Given that my involvement was announced only two weeks ago, a lot of stores were unable to put in their orders and the stores that did order them seem to have under ordered them.  So, to make up for this, I’m going to make some changes to the contest.

First of all, the contest will now run until 11:59 PM Central Time on Sunday August 4th so that everyone has the weekend to hunt down the issue.

Secondly, there are now four ways to enter:

1. Purchase the book in a comic book shop, take a picture of you holding it, and send it to me via email, Twitter, or Facebook.
2. Order the comic via an online comic book shop like  Take a screenshot of your order (you can crop out personal details) and email it to me at
3. Purchase the comic online via Image Comics direct ( or Comixology (  Take a screenshot of the purchased comic and email it to me at
4. If you cannot buy it online, but have told your local comic book shop to order it, shoot me an email, Tweet, or Facebook post letting me know what comic book shop you order the book from (store name, city, and state).  This is going on the honor system, so don’t be a dick and lie to me.

Remember the prizes are:

Five folks will win a full-color sketchcard of their choice.

A color sketchcard of your choice and an original 11 x 17 Dear Dinosaur page.

A full-color 11 x 17 commission (up to 2 characters), an 11 x 17 Dear Dinosaur page, and a sketchcard!
