A second trailer for Iron Man 2 has landed. Check it out: Most impressive.
There was a ton going on this weekend, in Baltimore, in cyberspace, and here in New York. Here are some highlights. The New York Anime Festival showed record attendance. Up 16% from last year, which is great to hear. The Ignatz Awards were announced. Congratulations to Jordan Crane, Nate Powell, and for the Kramers Argot, [...]
For your consideration: Brian Austin Green as Metallo on Smallville. Mickey Rourke as Whiplash in Iron Man 2. Heh. Well, this is awkward. No, not that the fact that the former 90210 alum is sticking close to something that he previously did on Sarah Conner Chronicles BUT the fact that he looks so much like [...]

The trailer premiered at Comic Con. Along with this bit of news, [...]
I shot this idea at Jeff earlier this week of doing a Basement Tapes-like weekly column where he and I talk about this Wednesday’s comics and other comic related events the morning after.
