I won the Superman Homepage Caption Contest Again!


This is kind of fun — there’s no prize involved, but I won the “Caption Contest” on the Superman Homepage several times 🙂  The Superman Homepage is THE site on the net for all things Superman: Comics, TV, Movies, and so much more.  I can honestly say there is no better place on the web if you love Kal-El.

One of the monthly features (besides all the news, podcasts, reviews, comic book and movie news, and EVERYTHING about Superman and his world — far, far more) includes posting a silly Superman picture and inviting readers to post humorous captions.

Check out the site; it’s excellent.
