Another example of how the simplest ideas are often the best, the 'X Men with Googly Eyes' Tumblr blog is going viral for the small, but hilarious alteration given to comic covers.
Every submission on the blog features a classic comic cover with every eye switched with a googly eye. Though it doesn't sound like this would have a huge impact, the visual effect is absolutely hilarious. Though true X-Men fans may take offense to this site, many people including non-fans are flocking to see what the hype is all about. Avid collectors likely cringe at the site of the comic's alteration, but viewers can only hope that this is not a permanent change made to the books.
Simple but undeniably appealing, this Tumblr is gaining well-deserved attention.
