BabyWatch: Congratulations to Brian and Ruth Vaughan on the birth of Alec Weber Vaughan! Are you going to tell him how Lost ends? (Via)

CartoonWatch: The new Avengers cartoon;

FilmWatch: Martin Webb, director of (500) Days Of Summer is signed on to direct Spider-Man 4, 5 and 6! And it looks like there will be plenty of Bendis and Bagley Ultimate Spider-Man in whatever comes through the pipe.

PilgrimWatch: /Film collates a bunch of test screening reviews of Scott Pilgrim Vs The World, such as this one from neogaf

Right off the bat, I knew I was going to love it. The Universal Logo was rendered in 8 bit with the Universal theme a MIDI version. Awesome. I knew I was again going to love it when the familiar opening from The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past (triforce spinning) cued the opening shot, a tilt down to an exterior of a house. Awesome. From there, it was a mixture of Edgar Wright’s usual frenetic camerawork with some unbelievably slick transitions, and while I knew nothing about the story behind the comics, I knew from the start it would be a fun ride


GuildWatch:
ComicsAlliance talk to Felicia Day about The Guild comic book.

So the reward of when I started getting panels back, the gestures and the way the characters were coming to life – Jim just has this fantastic style about him that’s so real and right. Once I saw Codex drawn, it made it so much easier to writer for her in the format, because it wasn’t my face. It’s a weird thing to step back and and see myself drawn as a character. And it made Codex more of a separate person to me, which was very valuable as a writer.

CensorWatch: The editor of Notre Dame College newspaper, The Observer, has resigned after publishing the following cartoon.

For those hard for viewing, it reads “What is the easiest way to turn a fruit into a vegetable?” “No idea.” “A baseball bat.” Yeah, exactly. Apology after apology after apology

LegalWatch: The Martin George Comic World murder case goes back into court over procedural grounds.
