  1. I like it but for some reason find it a little hard to read. I feel like if I didn’t already know the name of your site it would take a few seconds to read. I don’t know how to fix it though. The stencil spaces make it hard for the eye to pick out letters, so maybe more space between each letter?

I didn’t have time to fiddle with that last night when I threw it up there, so I decided to run this as is for a day or two, get a bit of feedback, and revisit it later. I’m also considering ditching the ‘Howling Mad’ Murdock pic, and either going with a logo or just plain…

  3. I have mixed emotions about the picture. Its kitschy in a cool way (or cool in a kitschy way, I’m not quite sure which). But maybe its time to aspire to more than kitsch in a blog that’s gotten pretty popular. Plus, its possibly being used illegally (not sure how the fair-use rules apply).
