the PopCult e-mail bins are often filled to bursting with letters,
most of them are missives from anxious money launderers in Zimbabwe. But
we also receive many suggestions for websites to check out. While these
sites often prove to be interesting in one way or another, most don't
quite make it as "Website of the Week" material. I am ever searching for
the right combination of graphics, content, appeal, uniqueness, and pop-culture
relevancy, and that isn't easy to pull off. So, while many of these sites
are indeed worthy in one or more aspects, I must beg the forgiveness of
their webmasters for not writing them up.
let the readers decide, I say! Here are the site suggestions as I received
them. Hit those links and tell me what you think. Whichever site gets
the most requests from PopCult readers will be designated the People's
Choice Website of the Week with the same glorious Q&A interview. Which
site would you like to learn more about?

Why hello their fellow
Pop Culture Junkie. My fetish is not books or magazines, but locations.
I travel around the USA and Canada and stop at all those places your parents
would never stop at, regardless of how much you screamed from the back
seat, like the biggest ball of twine, or the worlds largest ketchup bottle.
Stop by www.amuckinamerica.com

In the '80s, dark
and mature graphic literature thrilled North American readers eager for
something to reflect the more serious tone of modern life. Work like Alan
Moores WATCHMEN, Frank Millers DARK KNIGHT RETURNS,
and Neil Gaimans SANDMAN challenged the common view that
comics were just for kids.
Now, the web offers
the opportunity for the medium to evolve. Enter "cinematic literature"
enter BROKEN SAINTS.
Hope you enjoy it!
