365 Days with Ben Grimm: Day 132

Ladeez and gennlemen and boys and girls: are you ready for the most awesome cake in the universe?!?

Ben Grimm cake

It's the Ben Grimm Rice Krispie Treats Cake!

Oh man oh man oh man, I know what I want for my birthday party now! (July 1, if'n you're keepin' track.) Today's Ben Grimm is not utterly amazing but also ultra-sweet, and is shown through the kind courtesy of its Master Chief, Dan't of the Bully-approved blog You can check out another photo of the world's most clobberin' treat ever here, but don't stop there: make with the clickety-click to check out's wide range of commentary on and larfs at pop culture, music, film, the media, and "River City trombone futures." (Also, on comics!) Thanks again to Dan't for allowing me to show off his rocky orange snack sensation, and here's hoping he's going to be the chef at your next birthday party. (Now do She-Hulk, Mister Dan't!)

Gone fishin'

Oh, more accurately, gone book sellin'...but I don't have a comic book cover for that.

I'm off to the Pacific Northwest to see my good pals at and do a little business this week. I'll be back this weekend with all the regular Saturday and Sunday features, but don't go away: there'll be a brand-new "365 Days with Ben Grimm" every day this week. Be good to yourself and others, and see you on Saturday!
