So famous, I’ve cameoed in a comic strip…

The Thanksgiving Day edition of the Baldo comic strip featured me in its fourth panel. Check it out at Yahoo! News!

I’m right at the top of the frame… “Richard Beck…” In the print edition, it is very evident that there are three more letters and that they are “man,” making the name “Richard Beckman.”

Now, there are three Richard Beckmans that I know of — myself, my dad, and another who banks at the same place I do — but I’m fairly certain that’d be me in the comic frame. After all, I’m the only one of the three that’s even close to school age. :)

Okay, so this is about as lame as when I start chuckling when in Superman Returns Lois introduces Clark Kent to her husband Richard by saying, “Clark, Richard. Richard, Clark.” (My middle name is Clark.) Lame or not, it’s still neat.

Hope you all had a terrific Thanksgiving Day!

  1. Congrats! Glad you could get publicized? Hahaha!

    “Superman Returns” was a good movie, considering I have not seen any of the originals. However I have seen a good majority of the “Smallville” series, which I really enjoy. Has anyone else seen them?

  2. I’ve watched a total of maybe 10 minutes of Smallville, but I used to love “Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman.” I also really enjoy the original 4 Superman movies and have always been partial to the third, even though its perhaps one of the poorest movies ever made! :)

    I’m looking forward to the sequel to Superman Returns!
