A nice Teddy and the Yeti review, plus other references
I was recently made aware of this review for the first three issues of Teddy and the Yeti; John Norris at the "Comics in the Classroom" website was gracious enough to talk a little bit about the series and he had some nice things to say - and he noted the fact that the title is cool if for no other reason than the way it sounds...which, come on, is absolutely correct! You can read the full review here. Check it out!
Speaking of online references to Teddy and the Yeti, I'd be remiss if I didn't mention some of the other folks who are helping spread the word about the characters and the book:
- Henry at the "I Love the Yeti" blog has been a big supporter of Teddy and the Yeti, posting updates about the book and Wagon Wheel's convention appearances. If you haven't been to the site yet, check it out, if for nothing else than the sheer volume of yeti references collected.
Teddy and the Yeti centric blogs can be found here, here, here, here, here and here!
- Xavier at the "My Paper Heroes" blog created Teddy and the Yeti paper heroes and wrote a nice article about them (and the book) here. As I've mentioned before, this very website has had a lot of traffic flow over to here from the link Xavier has on his site, so do me a favor and reciprocate. There are a lot of really cool paper heroes you can download and build over there, so be prepared to find a new obsession.

- Yesterday's blog about Superman ice cream (I had some immediately after writing it, by the way) reminded me of the blogs I wrote at intermittent times for the blog "The Grouchy Gastronome". Regular columns on that site have been put on hiatus for a while (WHY?!?), but it's still worth checking out to see some angry writing about food.
If anyone would like to read what I wrote for the website, you can find my posts here, here, here, here, here, here and here!
- Also...um...I'm trying to shoehorn this in here, of course. But I'm allowed to do that. Since we're talking about other websites with references to Teddy and the Yeti, why not plug my online sketch comedy show, Franks and Beans? Why not, indeed?! Here's an episode with a cameo of the first issue of Teddy and the Yeti - I think I already posted the original episode, so this time I'll go with the episode commentary, which is equally as hilarious. Well, it's funny, in any case. Oh hell, just watch the video:
