Top Trumps - Ocean Master

sgThis was the last of four "Top Trumps" game cards sent to me a while ago by my pal (and curator of the cool Flash blog Crimson Lightning) Dixon.

I guess this was a costume redesign for Orm (not sure if it was ever used in the comics or what), but I don't think it holds up to the original--Orm's old mask looked like it smashed his nose down, which, to me, made him seem really badass--a bad guy who designs himself a painful costume on purpose.

Dixon was one of the first bloggers to write me and let me know how much he enjoyed what I was doing, and we had an informal team-up thing going between our respective JLA member-specific blogs, which was a lot of fun.
Sadly, though, he seems to have dropped off the face of the earth, blogger-wise. CL abruptly stopped being updated in 2007 and I haven't heard from him since.

Thanks Dixon, and if you're out there, drop us a line here at the Shrine!

Update: Great Neptune, this is spooky.

Just a few seconds after I posted this, I clicked over to Dixon's blog, just to double-check my link. And what do I see?

I see that Dixon has returned to posting at
Crimson Lightning, completely unbeknownst to me--I swear! WOW!

Glad to have you back, pal!
