two more bits of comic book news, and one link

Coming this month, from publisher AAA Pop:
Mike and Laura Allred adapt the Book of Mormon into a graphic format. In this installment, the Prophet Levi begins to spread the word on thin metal plates, which foretell the future of mankind."
-Wizard magazine #157

"DC also blew away fans with the announcement that Alex Ross would again pick up his paintbrush for his first monthly interior work since Kingdom Come during a 12-issue JLA title in 2005."

Today's must-read news:

"But those who live by Fox News can die by Fox News. If you limit your diet to Fox and its talk-radio and blogging satellites, you may think that the only pressing non-Laci Peterson, non-Kobe, non-hurricane stories are 'Rathergate' and the antics of the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth. Your diet of bad news from Iraq is restricted, and Abu Ghraib becomes an
over-the-top frat hazing. You are certain that John Kerry can't score in the debates because everyone knows he's an overtanned, overmanicured metrosexual. You reside in such an isolated echo chamber that you aren't aware that even the third-rated network news broadcast, that anchored by the boogeyman Dan Rather, draws 50 percent more viewers on a bad night than The O'Reilly Factor does on a great one (the Bush interview)."

Hooray for Renfest!

Hooray for Pickett's birthday! And belatedly, Kermit's birthday.)

(and by those both I also mean: hooray for b00ze!)
