It’s Sunday again! Time to break down the week that was, High Five! style.

First up, the top three High Five! posts of the week:

  1. High Five! Top Ten! – Get the Kleenex Guys, the Comics Made Me Cry– Sometimes our comics make us leak from our eyeballs.
  2. BOOM! Relaunches Uncle $crooge, Injects It With Awesome – Man, I didn’t realize how much I missed DuckTales until I read this book.
  3. Long Beach Comic Con: the High Five! Sketchbook –  We picked up a couple of little sketchbooks and went ’round collecting cool sketches from artists we like. Check ‘em out!

Next up, awesome stuff by people Not Us:

  1. Spike SCREAM Awards 2009 – Go vote! High Five! will be at the show, but since the broadcast doesn’t air until ten days after filming, we probably won’t be able to tell you much about it.
  2. Mark Waid Answers 56 Questions in 50 Minutes – Easily our favorite panel at Long Beach.
  3. 18 Superheroes Built Out of Legos –  Not quite as amazing as the My Little Pony Superhero Mods, but still pretty awesome. We like Cyclops!

  2. The Scarlet Speedster: The Fastest Drink Alive – High Five! creates the fastest drink alive! But is it? Does this make ours the Kid Flash?
  3. Stop Crying Over Cass, Batgirl is a Barbara Gordon Book In Disguise – Lots of fans are up in arms now that Stephanie Brown’s taken over the mantle of the Dark Knight Damsel. Maggie thinks you should all chill.

Next up, awesome stuff by people Not Us:

  1. Art Brut’s Trip Around DC Comics – You’ve all heard the DC Comics & Chocolate Milkshakes song by now, right? Well, looks like Art Brut managed to wrangle a tour of DC’s New York offices out of it. Let’s kill them and take over their lives.
  2. The 21 Awesomest Superhero Mods for My Little Pony – People with a lot of time on their hands (like us!) have modded a bunch of My Little Ponies. PONY STARK. ‘Nuff said.
  3. Stan Lee’s on Twitter! – Man, people didn’t believe me when his username was @tamenshud. Bendis was following him, people. BENDIS. Sheesh. But he’s changed his username and thrown up a picture. @smilinstanlee! Add him, kids. The Man shouldn’t have 1700 followers to Perez Hilton’s 1.5 million. Seriously.

Next up, cool stuff we didn’t do:

  1. Alan Moore Reflects on Marvelman (Miracleman) – Moore speaks on Marvel’s recent purchase of the rights to the character, and the long battle to figure out just who exactly owned the property.
  2. Elseworlds 2.0: Quicksilver Races in from Earth 3 – What if Quicksilver showed up in Flash #123 instead of Barry? We guffawed. MarvelSmartAss gots jokes.
  3. Megan Fox Loves the Three Comics She’s Ever Heard Of – I gotta say, brilliant marketing on her part, but comicsalliance rips it apart. She’s still way hotter and richer than me though, so I guess she’s got that going for her. Dangit.
