Yesterday we collected four awesome videos that showed up online this week. Now it’s time to take a look at some of your other favorite stuff around the web.

This is where I take a look at the 10 most popular items that YOU clicked on in my Twitter feed over the past week.

Hands down this week, Chris Sims’ post The 18 Best Batman Panels Ever over at Comics Alliance was your favorite thing on the web this week (after the Mortal Combat 7-minute short film). If you haven’t seen the piece yet just head on over there.

Chicago Now’s Life and Style section had a slideshow featuring 36 regrettable tattoos and they definitely chose some doozies.

Comics Alliance also had a hilarious piece on possibly the world’s worst Batmobile. The car is described as a “wrecked 1994 Pontiac Grand Am purchased for $100 last summer at Dave’s Towing in Ann Arbor, Michigan.”

Environmental Graffiti featured half a dozen incredibly realistic pencil renderings of animals. The drawings were done by Hong Kong artist Paul Lung who takes between 40-60 hours to complete each drawing. And this is just his hobby which he fits arounf his day job as a graphic designer. Beautiful Life has even more of Lung’s drawings.

Tim Bradstreet Covers Judge Dredd – Tim was hired to provide the cover for MEGA CITY MASTERS: VOLUME 1 coming out soon from Rebellion Publishing. It’s great to see The Judge finally get the Bradstreet treatment.

Blogger and writer Sean Kleefield pointed us to How to Build a Comic Shop where retailer Terry Grant documented in photos how he constructed Third Coast Comics.

SlashFilm pointed out that “Warner Home Video has greenlit a DC Universe animated adaptation of Frank Miller and David Mazzucchilli’s Batman: Year One. According to the report, the film will be directed by Sam Liu” who has previously directed Superman/Batman: Public Enemies.

99% presented us with the 10 LAWS OF PRODUCTIVITY. My favorite was number 5, Work on your project a little bit each day.

“With projects that require a serious infusion of creative juice – developing a new business plan, writing a novel, or just learning a new skill – it’s incredibly important to maintain momentum. Just as when you run everyday, the exercise gets easier and easier, the same thing happens with your brain. Stimulate it regularly each day, and those juices start to flow more freely.”

And finally for the writers: Over at Write To Done Brenda Hineman wrote about the journey of a writer and conquering that first sentence.

    Geekery:

    Sam Liu was actually one of Liefeld’s finds in the mid-90’s. Post getting ousted from Image central and pre-Awesome Entertainment, Liefeld had a company called Maximum Press, which lasted just long enough for him to spend the remainder of his Marvel money. He first picked up the Battlestar Galactica license there, and began the Warchild series which Alan Moore later scripted. AND, he had a small handful of assignments filled by then rookie Sam Liu, who has gone on to direct animation for Marvel and DC.
