Saturday Runaround – Gaddafi Vs Bit.Ly

BC ComicChronThis 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.

What will happen to http://bit.ly links when Gaddafi shuts down the Internet in Libya due to protests? – Quora

Today is the planned “Day of Anger” in Libya with protests similar to Tunisia, Egypt etc. – Shutting down the Internet in Libya should be fairly easy for Gaddafi as we have seen in Egypt. Do you think this will affect the http://bit.ly links?

The Creation of Black Lightning — TONY’S BLOGGY THING 2/18/11

Trevor never raised an objection to the Afro-Mask at the time, but  he has since said this about it: “I did NOT design the Afro-Mask. I say this because in the ’70s,  the Afro was a black man’s symbol of pride, and self-respect. His  singular identity. For a black super-hero to remove his hair or put  ON his hair as part of his identity is certainly odd. For a black  man to do so was, shall we say, tellingly symbolic, and definitely  not MY idea.”

The Walking Dead – DVD Trailer – FEARnet

No big surprises for hard-core Dead-heads in this sixty second promo for the first season on Blu-ray and DVD. If anything, seeing Rick Grimes fight the undead in post-apocalyptic Atlanta just makes me that much eager for the second season premiere.

Tony Bedard Comments on DC Comics Canceling R.E.B.E.L.S in Light of Flashpoint – Blog – Broken Frontier

“I’ve known for a long time that sales had dropped well into cancellation territory, but DC believed in the book and supported it long past where others may have chosen to cut it.  I’ll always be thankful for that.  We started talking actual cancellation a few months ago, though it wasn’t totally for sure.

‘Thor’ director Kenneth Branagh on humbling gods, celestial-human love, and impact of Shakespeare and ‘Star Trek’ – EXCLUSIVE | Inside Movies | EW.com

We always felt there was a very strong mine of material in the fish-out-of-water. When you reduce a man who is arrogant by temperament, extremely oppressive and used to having his own way, dressed, um … unusually, you are immediately in a position where you have comic friction. This is a guy who continues to live his own reality. In his mind, he’s still prince of the cosmos and he’ll do what he wants. People from Earth getting in his way and asking silly questions is immaterial.

The Lasso of Truth About New Wonder Woman Adrianne Palicki | NBC New York

She’s a legit comic book lover, and not of the “I’m doing press for my new superhero movie” lip-service kind of way. When your PopcornBiz writer visited Palicki on the set of the horror film “Legion” in 2008, we found her curled up with a copy of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ classic Watchmen at her side

‘ThunderCats’ TV Series: What We Learned At Toy Fair 2011

Though we got our first look at the new design for Snarf, Lion-O’s whining nursemaid, earlier this month, our tour of Bandai’s showroom provided a better idea of how the series’ most polarizing character will appear in the “ThunderCats” reboot.
