At last, the culmination of my Five-Year Plan!

FF #5'Scuse me if I blow my own li'l horn(s) for an evening, folks, but it's a special occasion...I'm five! Well, not me (I'm six!), but Comics Oughta Be Fun! turns five today amidst much hoopla, celebration, singing, dancing, and all-around partying. (Well, at my house anyway; I hope at yours too!) Yes, five years ago today I started this little puppet-town cow-blog of mine with a post reviewing some comics I'd picked up that week. A lot has changed since then. Spider-Man's revealed his identity, and then whoops! That was undone. He was married too, but whoops! Undone. The JLA hadn't yet become the Justice League of America. And the Incredible Hulk didn't have a planet of his own, wasn't at war with the world, and most certainly wasn't red. My, how times have changed!

I've had a lot of fun writing this blog over the past year, and I've downed a lot of donuts. (Little chocolate donuts.) So why not journey back over the past 365 days (each one stuffed with the rich goodness of either Ben Grimm or Hank McCoy) and join me on this self-indulgent trip through

My Favorite Posts of the Past Year!

(counting down to my very favorite at the bottom of the list!)



Whew! That's a lotta posts I really liked. (And there were a few others too.) Remember, if you liked reading this blog this past year half as much as I liked writing it, then I liked writing it twice as much as...wait a minute, I'm not very good at math and I have to check my figures. (It's difficult with hooves).

Instead, I'll just point out to you that, by some weird and wonderful coincidence, this very post is my 2500th on the blog. Wow, I couldn't have planned to hit that target if I'd had Ollie Queen standing behind me whispering in my ear! (Warning: don't let him do that). In celebration of 2500 posts and five years, why not join me and all my friends for some celebration cake! (Note: blog does not actually contain real cake).

Bully and his pals celebrate Bully's Fifth Blogiversary!


Mmmmm, that's good blogiversary cake. While me and my friends have a second piece, why not cast your peepers over this specially-chosen Five of a Kind of covers with Tens on them. I mean, Ten of a...ahhh, you know the drill by now.





















And in all sincere gratitude, this blog wouldn't be nuthin' without you guys. You know who you are. No, not you...not you...that guy. And that girl. And that group of people over there. Not you. But those folks. And...ah, heck, thank you to everybody who reads my blog . You have the gratitude of a little stuffed bull. (But you're not getting any cake.)

Stick around, folks—there's even more fun coming up during Year Six! And don't forget, we're all meeting back here this time next year for:

Since I discovered this site through other sites celebrating one of your previous anniversaries, this is kind of an anniversary for me too! (I'm not trying to make this all about me...I just need an excuse to have some cake.)

Congratulations and best wishes!

Looking forward to more.
