Francene hurt her hand and it is now all bandaged up and preventing her from typing, so she sent me these links telepathically. Once you're done enjoying them, maybe drop her a tweet and tell her you love her.
First up, you've probably heard by now, but a guy in St. Louis had his Superman collection stolen by what we can only assume is an epic jerkwad. You can send back issues, toys, your own drawings, or whatever you want to Bill either through his friend, or if you're on the Facebooks, through this Superfriends event (where donations will be delivered by a guy in a Superman suit.)
Also, Harvey Pekar's widow, Joyce Brabner, talks about the upcoming memorial to Harvey. It's a pretty cool looking statue, and will be interactive. Kind of awesome, considering Cleveland still hasn't paid proper tribute to Siegal & Shuster yet (a la a Superman statue.) There's a Kickstarter coming soon, and if you didn't feel right contributing for a Robocop statue in Detroit, considering giving to this one. You can make a whole day trip out of it once they're both finished.
Carey, resident crazy cat lady, wants to let you know there's a clever way to hide any improper drinking photos that you may have floating around in the social networksphere.
DETROIT FANFARE! A weekend pass is $15, which will get you in to all kinds of cool things including a Bruce Campbell Q&A if you can't afford the $45 autograph fee. It's in two weeks, we'll be there with Stevie from Comic Book Queers and Luke Foster from MoonFreight3. If you haven't made plans for that weekend and are in the area, there's going to be a lot of cool stuff going on around Cobo that weekend. Not just the convention, but Tigers baseball and preseason Wings, so maybe make some stellar date night plans, and catch some comic book nerdery in the process?
Finally, news about NYCC: Laura and Brenda will be there all weekend, though we won't have a table. You can come find us, though, we'll be out promoting the site and also Womanthology, which will have a panel at the show.
If you can't find us out on the show floor (and we'll try to live-tweet our locations as much as possible), you may see us grabbing a Grilled Cheese Martini, or visiting the new Big Gay Ice Cream Truck's Big Gay Ice Cream Store.
Speaking of New York, if you live there already, maybe check out the newest Cotton Candy Machine event: Shirts & Destroy: The Equisite Corpse. It combines the works of local painters, tattoo artists, and metal heads -- and a portion of all sales from the show will benefit a local arts program.
Good night, have a great weekend! Don't forget to check in with us on Monday, as a new podcast will inevitably drop some time on Saturday or Sunday.
