Ten of a Kind: Thirdiversary

The cover of The New Teen Titans #13 featured the prominent announcement: Heralding our second sensational year!

I've always kind of liked that header, even though technically it was the start of their second year and was only celebrating their first anniversary. As Titans was the biggest success in years at DC, I'll forgive 'em that. And I kinda wished they'd done one on issue #37 or so that celebrated their third anniversary and heralded the start of their fourth jam-packed action-thribbled Judas Contract-filled Starfire-squeezed fourth year. Why? Because I woulda liked to use that header today. Again, why? Because three years ago today, May 25, 2005, yours little stuffed truly sat down at the keyboard and tentatively typed my first entry in this blog, a review of Spider-Man #520 and other comics of the week, a Spidey issue that didn't hint of an armored Spider-suit, a public unmasking, a deal with the devil and a universal reset. Ah, those were the days.

As he begin our fourth sensational year here at Bully Says: Comics Oughta Be Fun!, let's look back at some of my favorite posts from the past twelve months, shall we? (Or, you can just skip below for the pictures, which is a good bit and has a really beautiful Legion cover.)


Plus, various Tens of a Kind, Separated at Births, Saturday Morning Cartoons, A Wodehouse a Weeks, and many other features I keep forgetting to do. (Mystery Science Monday, where have you gone? Timedance, someday I'll get back to you, I promise!)

So what's up for Year Four? New team members! New superpowers! New costumes! New headquarters! New crossovers with...oh, wait, I got confused. What's up for the year ahead? Same thing as every year, dear reader: we're going to have fun.

To kick off Bully: Year Four, here's a Ten of a Kind featuring the third anniversaries of some of my favorite comic books of all time. (Bi-monthly or irregular publications or zero issues often mean that the third anniversary is not falling smack-dab on issue #37.) Enjoy the blogiversary celebrations, Bully-boosters!

Happy thirdiversary, Bully! I forget what the gift is for number three, but a big box of comics will work in a pinch.

Congrats, Bully, and here's to many more! And maybe that big box of comics can be delivered by Jane Wiedlin, just for fun? (:

Or Tina Fey. But that may be too much to hope for. Happy Thirdiversary, Bully!

Flintstones clips have a habit of disappearing from YouTube so be sure to watch this before it gets yanked.
