This is The Bleeding Cool ComicChron Robot 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.

Stan Lee, Mastermind Of The Marvel Universe : NPR

And slowly, the mails started changing. Originally, our fan mail was written in crayon. After a while, we’d get letters written in pencil, then in ink. Then we’d start getting typewritten letters. I mean, I could tell that the audience is getting older and smarter and that was very exciting to me.

There will be Blood

With dialogue like that, you immediately know two things not just about the show, but about guts in general: One is that you need strong ones to watch this new series; and two, there’s a good chance that you’ll upchuck yours if you can sit through the scene. Why? Because the corpse chopping and intestine draping scene has to be the most gruesomely bloody scene ever shown on TV– and that includes all recent segments of “The View.”

Letters of Note: I have never drawn PEANUTS for children

The answer to your question of developing the strips to appeal to children without turning adults off is a simple one. I have never drawn PEANUTS for children. I have always drawn the strip with adults in mind, and fortunately, everyone seems to find something there. I draw from a child’s point of view, which is probably a significant factor to attracting young readers, but much of the dialogue is beyond a small child’s scope of understanding.

Rape suspect arrested after standoff with city police

A standoff between St. Louis police officers and a man wanted on several charges including rape ended peacefully Thursday night after about 3 1/2 hours. Kenneth McClure, 57, of the 5800 block of Hampton Avenue, was taken into custody about 9 p.m., police said. Officers showed up at his business, at the same address, about 5:20 p.m. to arrest him on charges of first-degree statutory rape, third-degree assault and unlawful use of a weapon. The business is Legends Comics & Sports Cards.

Nike SB Dunk Hi Premium – Iron Man

Despite its delay, the Nike SB Dunk Hi Premium in an Iron Man suit-inspired colorway is here. The all-suede upper presents burgundy forefoot, eyestay, and quarter panel while the toe, side panel, and tongue own red shade. Black comes along to color up the Swoosh, border the tongue, and make up the midsole. Finally, a generous hit of yellow strikes the interior, Swoosh border, Nike SB tongue label, and of course the outer sole.

Stanford class creates graphic novels, from concept to finished books

Some claim it is the new new journalism. Others consider it a debased art, little more than book-length comics. But no one can deny that graphic novels are very big on the contemporary cultural scene. So the Stanford Graphic Novel Project is a very successful sign of the times. Its students produce a published, full-length graphic novel in a few short months. This year’s novel, Pika-Don, tells the story of a survivor of both the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings in 1945. It was published this month.
