Promethea: Goes both ways|
Here's an interesting panel layout trick, courtesy of Alan Moore and J.H. Williams III. In this two-spread, the panels can be read either clockwise or counterclockwise, and in either direction they'll make sense as a sequence and conversation.

Atomic Robo vs. Dr. Dinosaur: Meta! Machine guns! Totally metal!|
You know what we haven't had yet on Scans Daily 2.0? Atomic Robo, that's what. This needs to be remedied, stat! dejadrew's awesome Captain Raptor post earlier this week resulted in the mighty Brian Clevinger, the writer of Atomic Robo, linking me to one of the stories from the Atomic Robo Free Comic Book Day issue.
This beautiful gem of a tale is titled "Why Atomic Robo hates Dr. Dinosaur."
Yes. You read that right. Dr. Dinosaur.
And lo, it was AWESOME.
You can read this enthralling tale in its entirety right here for free as the gentlemen behind Atomic Robo have thoughtfully posted it on their website. When I got to the last page, I was literally weeping in laughter. This was easily the best thing put out by anyone on FCBD.
I really urge anyone who hasn't yet picked up issues of Atomic Robo to give it a try. It tends to sell out quickly, though, so get hopping to your LCS on Wednesdays!
I say we need a Dinosaur Week on scans_daily. Have we had one yet?

The Creepy Conclusion|
With the '1/3 fair use' rules being extended to short stories as well, I've decided to end my Warren posts. In my opinion, it would not work for the majority of the remaining stories--if you have a six page story, for example, only showing two pages would be hard, mainly because I would be recapping most of the story myself and the effect would be lost.
That being said, there are still some stories that I was really looking forward to sharing for quite some time that I was saving for the end, so I decided I would post excerpts from them anyway. Most of them are from Creepy, but there's an Eerie and Vampirella hiding around as well.

One SPOILERY image from "Masters of Doom"|
IGN previews of FF#566 has a hell of a shocker.
If this is for real (and not retconned) you were much respected and welcome throughout the years.

Wooo hooo! My latest commission - Freddie Williams II|
Okay, well it's here, and once again, though I might be biased, I think I've really hit the jackpot with my commission! :)
Freddie Williams II is, as others have noted, an utter joy to deal with as a commission artist and I can't recommend him strongly enough.
When I asked for a Robin and villain piece, he asked if he could use the Joker, and since I couldn't recall ever seeing him do the Joker before, I was interested to see how it went. I suggested a few possibilities as to scenario, and he adored this idea in particular.

Meet THE PENETRATOR!|
Surprisingly, this is not porn.
But what a fabulous porn name it would be!
Weasel takes a turn as the PENETRATOR (aka the penetraitor) in Cable and Deadpool 44.
This scene made me cry I laughed so hard.
As a Deadpool newbie, I think I've fallen in love. Thank you S_D for introducing him to me!!!!

The Order of the Stick: Battle for the Gate|
The Order of the Stick is my favorite webcomic. It's based on Dungeons & Dragons, though you don't have to know anything about D&D to enjoy the comic.
To show you how awesome OotS is, I thought I'd share this extended sequence.
Y'all really should check out The Order of the Stick if you haven't already.
