Things We Saw Today

R2, 3PO and Yoda are available in a stackable set. (Fashionably Geek)

Here is a brand new image from Steven Spielberg‘s Tintin. (Superhero Hype.)

Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
