  3. Random question: I know you are using WordPress for this blog, but have you tried any other platforms? I am trying to decide whether to use WordPress or BlogEngine and I ask because I like yours.

  5. About time! Someone with some information on this. You’d think considering how popular Comic Book Adaptations are nowadays, some information would actually be pretty easy to find. Apparently not. Anyway, thanks for this! I appreciate it!

  8. I was chatting with my friend on MSN about this and I’ve got to say that I completely agree with the poster near the beginning. And on a side note, I really like the colors you used for your blog. What theme is this?

    • Thanks for the compliment. I just changed to this theme Modularity Lite. I like the look of it and the options are pretty cool.

    • Thanks 🙂 I use modularity lite. It was hard finding a theme I like with all the options I like AND the right looks/feel. Usually I only could find either options or look but never both before this theme.
