Dennis Barger of Wonderworld Comics of Detroit has been sending in a few photos from the Diamond Retailer Summit in Las Vegas. Probably best known by Bleeding Cool retailers as the man who launched a successful appeal to get IDW to change the cover of Powerpuff Girls for being a bit on the adult side. Something he was less concerned with the woman above, saying “When the hot poolside blackjack dealer has an autobot tattoo that is a good sign.” Well, at least he won’t be asking her to get it removed…

So anyway, before the Las Vegas traffic starts to hit, what have you been reading this week?
