Dresden Codak‘s Aaron Diaz has five redesigns for popular comic book characters including Wonder Woman (above), Starfire, and Superman (not just costumes, but origins, too). They are thoughtful, appropriate, and super interesting. (at Indistinguishable From Magic)
And here is even more exciting news: This Monday, we are very excited to welcome The Nerdy Bird herself, Jill Pantozzi to our crazy coven of geekery! And that’s pretty nuts, because we’ve been admiring her work from afar for a while now (and we’re super jealous that she has Kevin Conroy on her answering machine). A freelancer for several other sites, including Newsarama (where her column Hey, That’s My Cape! will continue), we’re looking forward to making wonderful nerdwords together. Welcome, Jill!
Also! If you’re interested in getting a free Nokia Sidekick, you’ve only got until the end of the weekend to like our page on Facebook or follow us on Twitter!

A new study from the University of Basque Country says that mothers are mostly responsible for transferring attitudes about sexism to their children, so have a care, everybody. But there’s a catch: even the author says it might not be the most reliable study:
The author states that “if we bear in mind that women are the main victims of sexism, it is paradoxical that they are the ones who have a greater influence when it comes to the transference of such damaging attitudes”. However, she goes on to admit that “we are unable to confirm that this relationship is of a cause-effect nature given that our study is not correlational and does not use experimental methodology.”
And, finally, if you’re going to be pregnant this Halloween, here are some costume suggestions for you (that do not include the tried-and-true nun’s habit, because of the whole “see what I did there” element). (via Offbeat Mama)
