Bits & Pieces


A Crayon Haiku #65!

The new season of Doctor Who hasn’t been all that great, but this latest development is especially ridiculous and utterly unacceptable. In A Crayon Haiku #65, we look upon the abomination that is… well, abominable.  (4/21/07)

The Sinister Pelican


Like the VA Tech shooter, Wes was also condemned for authoring “disturbing” works in college. In fact, this very excerpt was deemed so horrifying that the writing tutor avoided him at all costs after reading it! Srsly.  (4/20/07)


A Crayon Haiku #64!

Today is Friday the 13th, so here is A Crayon Haiku #64 with a potentially spooky product from the dollar store to commemorate the occasion! Perhaps it will go well with Whitehall sandwich slices… and bread.  (4/13/07)

This game freaking rocks.


They’ve released a ton of Ninja Turtles video games over the years, but none has been quite like TMNT: Manhattan Missions (except for itself, of course). Read on to find out why it’s our favorite interactive Turtles adventure!  (4/8/07)

Short Story: ''The Native and the Foreigner''


Yes, it’s time for another short story! Well, sort of, as “The Native and the Foreigner” is more of a brief vignette that describes an uneasy foreigner’s initial interactions with his native host. Strange customs indeed…  (4/4/07)

Leonardo knows how to shimmy.


With a new Turtles movie in theaters, you just knew they’d release a video game tie-in to milk the franchise for even more cash. But is it worth buying? Read our review of the PC version of Ubisoft’s TMNT for more details.  (3/31/07)

Screaming CGI Turtles.

A Crayon Haiku #63!

Well, the latest TMNT film is finally here! Alas, for us at Scary-Crayon, it’s something of a disappointment. We’ve summed up our thoughts in A Crayon Haiku #63, but see the attendant blog post for a fuller assessment.  (3/25/07)

Oh noez, Grimlock!

A Crayon Haiku #62!

A Crayon Haiku #62 marks the writing debut of Grimlock, who has composed a haiku about the rather unfortunate state in which he appears in this short piece. Curse those Autobots and their poor leadership skills!  (3/25/07)

A Crayon Haiku #61!

A Crayon Haiku #61!

Those wacky exterminators are popping up everywhere — apparently even in the homes of people too fat to actually walk to the store to purchase them! See A Crayon Haiku #61 and the attendant blog entry for details.  (3/15/07)

''if I owned a zpizza I would...''

Dusty Plastic HELL: Hot Flash #98!

The Daleks return to Scary-Crayon in Dusty Plastic HELL: Hot Flash #98, in which a restaurant comment card asks the question: what would a Dalek do if it owned a zpizza establishment? I think you know the answer.  (3/14/07)

It is Soundwave!

Dusty Plastic HELL: Hot Flash #97!

The Transformers return to Scary-Crayon in Dusty Plastic HELL: Hot Flash #97! The Decepticons may be trouble, Hasbro, but that shouldn’t be taken literally concerning certain characters’ action figure designs.  (3/8/07)

A Crayon Haiku #60!

A Crayon Haiku #60!

Those shady people who try to take advantage of hapless citizens via e-mail strike again in A Crayon Haiku #60. Where is Jessica when we need her to rip these bastards in half? Yes, I dig the “Heroes” references.  (3/7/07)

Hooray for Daleks!

Dusty Plastic HELL: Hot Flash #96!

In Dusty Plastic HELL: Hot Flash #96, a young Donatello asks Sec about his views regarding a particular February observance! But why should a Dalek care about Black History Month? As if you don’t already know!  (2/26/07)

A Crayon Haiku #59!

A Crayon Haiku #59!

If you’re like Wes, you can sometimes forget about foods that you’ve purchased and stored in the freezer… for years. A Crayon Haiku #59 sees the return of a frozen edible that has been on ice since the bookstore days!  (2/19/07)

The Street Fighter II Crossovers That Time Forgot!


Shampoo versus M. Bison? You bet! Here, we review two pre-MUGEN titles that pit Ryu and the gang against some rather unlikely opponents. Maximoff, the creator of these retro relics, is here to share his insights as well!  (2/5/07)

A special three-year anniversary action figure review.


On January 25, 2004, Scary-Crayon first opened its HTML doors to the public. Now, three years later, we return to those early days… and to the action figure representations of one of the articles that started it all. Join us.  (1/25/07)

A Crayon Haiku #58!

A Crayon Haiku #58!

As we begin Scary-Crayon’s fourth year, we look at how things have changed elsewhere in A Crayon Haiku #58. Sometimes change is good — but often it is not. Hopefully SC’s evolution has been less depressing.  (1/25/07)

''Pizza through tyranny!''

Dusty Plastic HELL: Hot Flash #95!

Hurrah for toy comics! In Dusty Plastic HELL: Hot Flash #95, Raph and Don find themselves with a hankering for pizza. Will their cravings be satisfied, or will something go horribly wrong? Read on to find out!  (1/25/07)
