have I ever mentioned Dave Kelly?

Seriously, have I ever mentioned Dave? Dave is this awesome
artist that was doing these amazing webcomics before I ever got started,
the first of which (that I read) was called Living in Greytown. He's done
several others since then, including Lizard! and Purple Pussy, and is
currently doing some even more amazing flash work over at Something Awful.
when I say amazing, let me clarify - his art style is so completely distinctive
that I could pick it out of a lineup of a billion sketches, because it's
just...Dave. Eccentric, goofy, weird, violent, crazy, wacked out shit
that I simply adore because it's so...Dave.
now it's also some dude named Todd
for those of you that have seen the television series Firefly, remember
that noise Mal made when something absolutely baffling was said? You know
what I mean - the 'Huh.'
was the EXACT noise I made when I saw this.
Todd Goliath. That looks MIGHTY similar. ...huh.
those of you that enjoy webcomics and art and flash and all this awesome
stuff that we toss out for you to love online...a little support would
be lovely. The only thing more annoying than people that like to belittle
artwork and comics that are placed online as somehow 'subpar' or 'below
average' is the sceevy little schmucks that think that just because something
is online it is free to use without proper credit. Or financial compensation.
If this infuriates you as it does me, then spread the word, via livejournals,
blogs, myspace, whatever - and let people know what's going on, because
this is highly disturbing and incredibly irritating to say the very least.
it's Dave. And Dave rocks my socks.

Apparently the dude's name is Todd GOLDMAN, not Todd GOLIATH,
or he GOES by Goliath, or Goldman, or some other shit.
someone who has been using a pen name for years this really doesn't matter
to me, but HEY! If the dude is a HACK, you might as well know ALL the
names this HACK uses when he's BEING a HACK.
HACK HACK HACK HACK.
my kitchen is flooding even as we speak, and I am waging an epic
battle against the very tides of Poseidon himself. Tensions
are a little, shall we say, high.
