* DC presents in publicity-release fashion some of the findings from the surveys it paid for when their New 52 launched. This is sort of like trusting a middle-aged man to tell you everything the doctor told him at a yearly check-up, so I can't make a big deal of it, but it's worth reading.
* Kim Thompson reminds that you can get a Joost Swarte mini-comic if you order that Joost Swarte book directly from Fantagraphics.
* Graeme McMillan noodles around with suggestions that Marvel might bring its Captain Marvel back from the dead. Maybe Marvel can re-name him after the sound effect of smacking the nega-bands together.

* I'm grateful that David Brothers gives us some contextual analysis that I'm unqualified to provide over one of Dan Buckley's claims in his recent interview, that Marvel doesn't really encourage/require its readers to read comics outside of its core event series in order to get "the whole story." He thinks they very much do this.
* because it's in slideshow format I'll never read it -- all that clicking tuckers me out -- but go here for a run of superhero comics projects for which fans are still waiting. Speaking of superhero comics projects, Albert Ching talks to David Gabriel about Marvel's "Point One" program of jumping-on-point comic books.
