Comixology‘s new Submit functionality for digital comics will change the industry, no doubt. Makes me want to find an artist extra bad.
A Super Troopers sequel might film later this year? That is amazing. (via Collider)

On a similar note, I’m really excited to hear by way of MTV Geek that Kurt Busiek’s got an Astro City ongoing in the works at DC. I’m a big fan of that world and can’t wait to see more.
Universal is suing a porn company for making a Fifty Shades Of Grey parody. No big deal there, right? The interesting part of this THR article is that the porn company’s lawyers claim that much of Gray is actually in the public domain because 89% of the work was published on various websites as fanfic. This could turn out to be a really interesting case for digitally distributed content moving forward. How does ownership work on the internet these days, especially if you’re posting your artistic endeavors on a third party site? What will that mean for future deals like the one E.L. James got?
A lot of mash-ups just become noise, but this one featuring Nine Inch Nails’ “Head Like A Hole” and Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” is brilliant.
I’m pretty curious about this official Doc Savage King Kong crossover book called Doc Savage: Skull Island. Sounds pretty rad.
I’m a sucker for a good list about creepy abandoned places, so this one from ListVerse is aces in my book.
I don’t follow many indie comic artists, but I’ve become a huge fan of Kevin Huizenga over the years. He posted the cover to his new book The Half Men over on his blog. No idea what it’s about, but I’ll give it a shot.
IFC keeps lining up comedies I want to check out. THR just announced that Will Ferrell and Adam McKay are working on one called The Spoils Of Babylon while Ben Stiller and Mr. Show‘s Bob Odenkirk have The Birthday Boys in the works. I don’t have IFC, but when they hit Netflix Instant, I’m all over them.
Oh sweet goodness, Dan Hipp’s posting artwork again over on his blog. You can not go wrong in my brain by mashing up Predator in a smoking jacket and a video game-themed trophy room. This is now my computer’s wallpaper.
Simon West wants to remake the Burt Reynolds movie Heat with Jason Statham and Sofia Vergara. Yes, make this happen, Hollywood. (via THR)
Feast your eyes on this fantastic Centurions Jake Rockwell custom toy by Hiss Tank contributor nath_1977. I would buy a line of toys like this.
