Action Comics #1Greetings, children of the internet. If you're down in Anaheim for the Southern California version of WonderCon, I  hope you had a great time! Here's some stuff you might've missed.

Sad news out of England about comics artist Brett Ewins. Fortunately, blogger Daniel Best has posted information about how you can help.

There’s some concern that Wallace (of Wallace and Gromit) is being hurt by comparisons to an English Labour Party leader.

The weirdly funny tale of Nicolas Cage’s stolen copy of Action Comics #1 could become a movie. At least it’s the “possible movie” everyone’s talking about in the current 15 minutes.

Becky Jewell interviews J. Torres about his work on Archie’s reboot of Li’l Jinx.

The writer Lance Mannion offers commentary on the updating of Sherlock Holmes, including the BBC series Sherlock and the upcoming CBS homage to it called Elementary.

Does publicity help sell books? Gerard Jones shares his experiences.

Bill Watterson gets interviewed. Need I really say more?

Longbox Graveyard has a post simply titled: Steve Ditko’s Strange Faces. It’s hard to argue with that.

And because I will always post something about one of the Two Ronnies, it seems Ronnie Corbett had a small health scare.

That’s it for this week. Use your internets responsibly.
