  • Marvel has given Journey Into Mystery the ax. Writer Kathryn Immonen wrote, “We are done with 655. But seeing as we were basically cooked right out of the gate, I’m going to call hanging in for nearly a year a success.” (via DC WKA)
  • Here is a montage of dogs sticking their head out of car windows. You’re welcome. (via The Frisky)

Can you guess who this inked man is? It’s none other than Benedict Cumberbatch, drawn by none other than Benedict Cumberbatch! And if you’d like to own it, put your hand in for the silent auction to benefit the UK’s New End Primary School.  (via The Hollywood Reporter)

  • 50 years ago tomorrow, the first woman went to space. We salute you, Cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova! (via NBC News)
  • Patton Oswalt writes a lengthy essay on his website titled, “A Closed Letter to Myself About Thievery, Heckling and Rape Jokes.” On the topic of rape jokes he says, “I had my viewpoint, and it was based on solid experience, and it…was…fucking…wrong.” Go read it all.

    I’m a little sad to see Journey into Mystery go, because I loved Kieron Giellons run on it so much. That said, after the switch to Sif/Immonem, it was a completely different series, and I couldn’t get into it. I kind of wish Immonem had tried to keep the series light, but maybe that wouldn’t work with Sif’s character (I know next to nothing about Sif).

    Kudos to Patton Oswalt. Loved the essay.

    Woah, Troy is doing a PPG comic now? Busy dude!
    (Though I’m guessing that this comic will be slightly different from his other comic about three kickass ladies.)

    There is a reason that man is my favorite comedian.
