I don't read comics at all, but this is cool.

Anyone who has a similar site for painters or writers, have at it.

It amuses me that Mark Waid's "Jesus-on a dashboard" is Mr. Terrific, one of the few atheist superheroes I can think of.

It also amuses me that I'm slightly embarrassed to admit I know that much about comic book superheros on Metafilter. Really, it's not as though I haven't proved myself dork already.

*runs in* I love seeing artists' workspace to get some kind of glimpse into how they work (I'm especially a sucker for those "step-by-step-here's-how-I-draw" images), but, oh, sweet Jesus, this is so awesomely fanboy voyeurtastic since I love, loooooooooove Allred and Immonen. That is all I have to contribute to this.
