Top Ten Most Read Posts Of The Week

1. Green Lantern Poster From The Warner Bros Lot

It’s a poster. It might be for the movie. It might be for the CGI. It might be a fake. But you loved lookig at it! Number one most watched story of the week.

2. Doctor Hoo – Doctor Who In Owl Form

And you almost like looking at Doctor Who in Owls. You know, thnis is ticking a bit of my head that says “Why not run a blatant attempt at creating something viral ever week – and call it that.” You have been warned.

5. Frank Quitely’s Drop Dead Gorgeous Cover To Judge Dredd Megazine #301

A bit of art porn there ladies and gentlemen. But ypu all loved it as much as I did.

6. A Twice-Monthly Spider-Man Slott?

An actual proper comic book industry rumour! With Dan Slott and Marvel not even acknowelfing its very existence. What can it all mean?
