Just in case anybody is interested in inadvertently helping promote Dave Sim's new book by picking a fight with him on a message board, he will be appearing next on the Panels and Pixels board today.
"She should get her act together."

"There's a girl at your left reading COMIC BOOKS!"

Juno To Become Video Game
According to this article in Dolly Mix, the hit movie Juno will be made into a video game for the "casual market."
You know, when I think "video game," the movie Juno is not the first thing to jump out at me. I suppose there will be a "knock up" button configuration.
Of Course, The Most RELEVANT Thing About "Juno" To Us Comic Fans Is...
The actress played Shadowcat in "X-Men 3." And Jennifer Garner is in the movie too. Who played Elektra. So. It's like Shadowcat is teaming up with Elektra. Cool.
Val Kilmer Now Official Geek Icon
With the recent announcement of Val Kilmer replacing Will Arnett as the voice of Kitt in the new Knight Rider, I now consider him an official geek icon. He narrowly missed official geek iconic status by appearing in a handful of critically-acclaimed films in the 80s & early 90s, but then he did Batman Forever AND appeared in comic conventions roughly ten years later.
But, he was the man who taught me that Vals can be men too. Plus he drank blood in The Doors.
The Alba Has No Eyes
I don't have a picture available, but has anybody seen the art for the recent newspaper ads for the Jessica Alba horror flick "The Eye?" It's a picture of Alba with her eyes gouged out. Yep, that's it -- two bloody holes photoshopped onto Alba's face.
Classy. What I want to see when I drink my morning latte.
"We know this movie sucks, so we're going to change marketing strategy last-minute and show you a pretty mutilated chick."
Oh, let's not pretend that there isn't a market for it.
