You won't be able to partake in this social network-themed treat unless you're on Croatia's Murter Island, where the not-sanctioned-by-Facebook confection can be found exclusively in brothers Admir and Ibi Adili's ice cream shop. It's pretty much just plain ice cream with a blue syrup that tastes like "chewing gum and candy" drizzled on top. So it's geared towards kids and looks neat at first but ultimately doesn't have much to it. Fitting. (That's Nerdalicious)
The Harvey Awards, the American comics industry's in-house awards show, was last night. For the second time, the MC was the internet's own Scott Kurtz, writer and artist behind PVP, occasionally known as the granddaddy of webcomics. There was even a bit of controversy, after Mark Waid's "impassioned speech about copyright and what its intent truly is" which contained a reminder to the comics industry to "not make the mistakes of the RIAA and the movie industry." According to Bleeding Cool,
Sergio Aragonés was later to counter Waid’s theme face-to-face which led to a rather loud contre temps between the two and a bit of a storm off on Waid’s part, with Aragones acclaiming that you don’t just give your work away.Aragonés, if you're looking for a contextual touchstone, is a veteran of Mad Magazine and the creator of Groo the Wanderer, while Waid wrote The Flash for eight years, and was the writer behind Kingdom Come. But enough of that! See the award winners and their competition below:
