Things We Saw Today: The Littlest Bender

Things We Saw Today


A reddit user recently shared this old Halloween picture of his daughter. I feel like she needs to be holding a sippy cup. (via i09

  • A woman named Beautiful Existence wants to eat and drink nothing but products sold at Starbucks for a year. I hope she gets a 24 caret Gold Card. (via The Frisky)
  • We’re sad to have to report on the death of Aaron Swartz, former co-owner of reddit. He committed suicide yesterday in New York City. Many are speculating the cause was an ongoing investigation against him for downloading Journal Storage articles from MIT that could have led to prison time but Swartz had acknowledge in the past he was depressed. He was 26. (via Geekosystem)

Dr. Andrea Letamendi, who wrote The Psychology of the Fake Geek Girl for us, is officially part of Gotham City canon. As a surprise, Gail Simone had her name and likeness produced for Batgirl #16 (in stores now) as Barbara Gordon’s therapist. We couldn’t be more proud, or jealous. (via The Bird and the Bat)

  • Jurassic Park 4. Steven Spielberg. 3D. June 2014. (via The Hollywood Reporter)
  • A study was done in Japan that says Nintendo is the most desirable company a prospective partner could work for. (via Kotaku)

Scott Lobdell will no longer be the writer on Red Hood and the Outlaws starting with issue 19. James Tynion IV and artist Mico Suayan take over with Roy Harper as the focus for the new story arc. As you can see, Starfire gets an updated costume. They’ve actually given her more material this time around but neglected that whole gravity thing again.
