There hasn't been much activity on any of the ZombieCatBacon blogs since the year began. However, there has been quite a lot of ZombieCatBacon activity. I've been playing with various social media outlets, shared blogging formats, and a number of "pin boards" to share content relevant for each of the "channels" I enjoy writing about or perusing at my leisure.
You can find the various ZCB channels playing at the various locations listed below. (The asterix shows the most active locations for that channel)
The Comicro (comics):
*Facebook page - give us a Like, won't you?
Pinterest board - Follow me!
Tapiture board - Pinterest for guys?
Gentlemint board - not sure if Gentlemint works for me yet, we'll see
Twitter feed - called Zombie Cat Bacon, but a lot of comic stuff here

I'll provide an overview of the other three (United States of Whiskey, BBQHoney and Voyage of the Darned) later this week.
As far as the Mothership goes (ZombieCatBacon), I am toying with developing a central "go-to" point for all this stuff. A ZombieCatBacon nexus of my universe, if you like. I know a Venn diagram of my interests would look rather odd, but judging by the traffic, comments and email I get, I know there are many of you that are drawn in by one thing and discover something else you weren't expecting. And that's the fun part of doing all this stuff. The interaction and engagement I've received over the past year tells me I'm onto something. I just have no idea what that is.

Anyway, I've been saving a bunch of cool links I'd like to get out to y'all, so let's dive in:
Not really a "lost art" but not really a necessary communication device anymore, the rock poster provided a tremendous amount of absolutely innovative and gorgeous graphic works over the past 40 years. Ben Marks at BoingBoing provided a wonderful overview of the form back in October right here. Some samples from the article, When Art Rocked:
|You've probably seen this before; it's a classic|
The show of the same name is still on until the end of this month. If in San Fran in the next few weeks,
Something a little more modern, perhaps? Image Comics (!) produced this nifty overview of the '80's punk scene by reproducing over 600 flyers from shows featuring "Dead Kennedys, Minor Threat, Gorilla Biscuits, Youth of Today, Agnostic Front, AOD, Fear, GBH, Murphy’s Law, Warzone, Kraut, and hundreds more."
If you dig this, check out these two links as well:
Next week, we look at some travel posters, for those who think communism = vacation.
