PirateWatch: 11 pirated Harry Potter books in China? Including a number that pit Harry Potter against, or alongside Chinese wizards because there just aren’t enough in the Rowling books?

POTUSWatch: Obama plugs comic book The 99 on Monday for its promotion of a tolerant Islam, and on Wednesday reporters find a copy of Barack The Barbarian in a coffee shop waiting for the president. Is it me or do you reckon Josh Blaylock placed it there himself?

UslanWatch: Was Michael Uslan a proto-Mark Millar? In an interview he talks about how his comics course led to employment in the comics industry.

“I called the UPI and posed as a taxpayer complaining about my money being spent on a course on comics, a commie plot to subvert our children… There was a piece on it in virtually every paper. The classes were full of cameras.”

Michael soon received a call from the vice president of DC Comics that led to a job writing The Shadow and later Batman.
