The Great Wednesday Compare 3- Art Spiegelman VERSUS Stephen Hawking


The winner of last week's Great Wednesday Compare (Stan Lee Vs. Art Spiegelman) with a final score of 4-2 was Art Spiegelman.

6 votes? I assume everyone was all voted out last week. Hopefully a few more will join in this week. (Read: please invite your blogging friends!)

Was it a Spiderman versus Maus pairing? Or Striperella versus the Garbage Pail Kids? It seems there could have been two very different perspectives. In any case, Stan Lee is defeated. But certainly his creations, his writing, and his marketing demand more than a little respect. Spiderman, X-Men, and others will no doubt continue to be cultural icons for generations to come.

This week things head in a slightly different direction.

Remember, vote simply by adding your comment below, base it on whatever merit you choose, voting does not end until Tuesday at 11:59 p.m. (Nov. 18th, 2008), and if you want your author to get more votes, feel free to promote them here or on your blog!

Who's better?

Even though I have never even read the dumbed down version of his magnus opus, I have to go with Stephen Hawking, because, well hell, it's Stephen Hawking, isn't it?

Mentioned "Maus" to my art class students today, and one of them was intrigued enough to borrow it, so I've gotta vote Spiegelman.

Dooner: Hardly recognized you in your profile pic. Why'd you give up blogging anyway?

The physics teacher has to vote for Hawking, although I havent' read his book, I've watched the documentary by the same name every semester for the last few years.
