Neil Blender #11.
It's time to wrap up a look at skateboard comics from the last twenty years with one last post. Before the name became associated with a great website chronicling skateboard history, the Chrome Ball Incident was a series of comics drawn by Neil Blender where these floating balls would smash into people. There is even an animated version of it in Alien Workshop's Memory Screen video.
Back in 2008 when I started to discover some of the skateboard websites that people were doing, I found the Chrome Ball Incident and was instantly stoked on the name of it for referencing a somewhat obscure Blender creation. Keep up the good work Chops and hope the move out west goes well. I'll do what I can to hold down the fort until you get the operation going again.
Vert Is Dead will be back on Tuesday.
