Okay, they got me with enough of these. Super spoilers here, folks. I'm glad that WW is returning to an older status quo. Sort of.

And that may not be the spoiler you think it is.

This pre-52/post-52 mix is annoying me. Split them or not, don't merge them.

Trends in book sales... I only buy print books these days if I want them in bigger formats than tablet size. Or if they're not available in digital.
The RMS Titanic sank over a century ago, taking with it 1500 lives. It could have been many fewer, but in the early stages of the catastrophe the boat appeared to stop sinking, and many passengers …

Maybe someday, tv show!
A series based on wonderfully weird 1984 cult science fiction classic The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the Eighth Dimension is likely coming to TV, courtesy of Kevin Smith, and we have The Flash to thank (or blame, depending on your point of view). Read on, Hong Kong Cavaliers.

We are?
The Pentagon recently began funding maritime security projects with countries in the South China Sea aimed at giving them the capability to monitor activities in their territorial waters and air space amidst concerns of regional Chinese expansion. Defense Secretary Ash Carter said the department recently released funding under the Maritime Security Initiative, which totals $425 …

Our hearts go out to the family of John Ridsdel.

This is terrible.
ZAMBOANGA CITY—On the day Canadian John Ridsdel, 68, was beheaded, a P20-million ransom had been raised for delivery to his Abu Sayyaf captors. The deal collapsed after the kidnappers

Well, the Batverse has always been the most interesting part of the rebooted realities for me. Will see if any of these hook me.
DC Comics is in full-blown REBIRTH mode and this week's new DC titles offers new looks at ALL-STAR BATMAN, DETECTIVE COMICS and BATMAN.

I'm glad they're acknowledging that something was lacking in the new52-verse.
DC's publisher outline the impetus and the goals for this summer's line-wide REBIRTH.

Certainly a big influence on my youth...
With the news that DC is doing a crossover with some Hanna-Barbera characters, it got me thinking about applying a DC style multiverse to their diverse stable of characters. This might be useful for a Hanna-Barbera Supers Universe game. Here's what I've got so far: Earth-Anthropomorphic ...

+Alex Osias if you are vaguely interested, there are some episodes of Space Angel on youtube.

The front runner for our Presidential election doesn't seem particularly diplomatic.

And the possibility of Bongbong as VP? No picnic either, and sure to become president through some machination if he gets the VP slot.

China has secured a consensus of 4 out of the 10 member nations of ASEAN (Association of South East Asian Nations): Brunei, Cambodia, Laos, and itself.

"It was agreed that territorial and maritime rows should be resolved through consultations and negotiations by parties directly concerned."
In what analysts say highlights foreign policy fault lines in Asean, China has reached a four-point consensus with Brunei, Cambodia and Laos on the South China Sea issue during Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi's just-ended visits there.. Read more at straitstimes.com.
