Twasn’t the best day ever, but these links brightened my day a bit.
Tom Spurgeon‘s thoughts on comic book piracy are pretty fascinating. I agree with pretty much everything he says (the stuff I understand at least). The sense of entitlement that my generation feels towards all things digital is incredibly annoying to me. The Art Asylum blog showed off the Battle Beast that will be included with the MiniMate carrying case. I love the original toys and hope DST eventually puts them out in their own waves!The ControlBot4000 T-shirt on RedBubble looks AWESOME! (via Shirtoid)
I was first introduced to Thomas P.M. Barnett thanks to a left wing sociology professor who seemed to think he was non-partisan, but clearly was. He made us read The Pentagon’s New Map, which was fascinating. I picked up his next book, but haven’t read it yet. I’m glad to see him writing on Esquire.com.
I had the exact same thoughts about Boom’s CBGB comic as Robot 6‘s Brigid Alverson did. It’s kind of creepy actually.
I’m cautiously optimistic about the animated All-Star Superman movie. It’s one of my favorite comics and I love almost everything else they’ve done, but this one makes me a little leery. According to Robot 6 it’ll be out on February 22, so I guess I’ll know sometime after that.
