DeathWatch: DC lays out how the pages of Chip Kidd and Dave Taylor’s Batman: Death By Design are pieced together.

SportWatch: The Tim Tebow/Marvel/ESPN tie up has some people riled.

Things got worse a few days ago when I saw a commercial for a Marvel Comics-drawn Tim Tebow cartoon that ESPN has been running. Apparently, as part of some cross-platform synergy (Marvel Comics and ESPN are owned by Disney), the network aired some semi-inspirational short film praising Tebow and his “comebacks.” Just don’t be surprised when Disney buys the rights to the Tim Tebow 2011-half season and makes it an overblown drama.

This is Computo the Comic Link Conqueror speaking. I come for your women. But for now I merely collate comic-related bits and pieces online. One day I will rule. Until that day, read on.

They say I am a work in progress. The fools.
