* there's a nice post up from Caitlin McGurk at the Billy Ireland Library about their recent hard-hat tour of the new facility as it rounds into shape. That's going to be a crown jewel for comics in terms of comics-related places, and I have to imagine it's a thrill for those involved to see it begin to take its final form.
* Brian Hibbs castigates the comics reporting community on not nailing down whatever it is that IDW is doing with Dave Sim's High Society -- which looks like the DVD version of the new digital copy. Yeah, we deserve that one.
* J. Caleb Mozzocco continues his comparison of DC's current treatment of its characters with a stand-alone treatment of same a couple of years ago.
* Sean Kleefeld is inspired by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby's The Thing. The overachiever aspect of that character is a nice spin by some of the later writers that's helped extend that character's popularity. Great character, The Thing. I wasn't surprised the Fantastic Four movies were pretty bad, because it's hard to shoehorn what was good about those comics into a high-concept summer film framework, but they could have done a much better job presenting one of Marvel's five best and three most appealing characters.
