Folks, I have seen some cruel April Fools' Day pranks in my time. Heck, I just read through the last 15 years of Funky Winkerbean strips from April 1 a few minutes ago, so I thought I was immune to the pangs of disappointment, but no. No I am not. And I know that, because with their annual prank, Google has shown us a finer world and reminded us how far we have fallen.

Since Mass Effect 3 was released a few weeks ago, there's been a lot of controversy over how the game ends. Some fans have advocated storming BioWare's headquarters with torches and pitchforks, others have praised it for daring to embrace color-coding as a storytelling tool, but no matter what side of the debate you're on, there's one thing we can all agree about: Mass Effect would be way better if Commander Shepard grabbed a guitar and rocked the Reapers to death at a battle of the bands.

At his spotlight panel today at WonderCon in San Francisco, writer Grant Morrison responded to an audience question about the delays that have plagued several of his recent comics with a rather inscrutable reply, even for the enigmatic Morrison.
In a move apparently spurred by the final impassioned plea of Joanne Siegel regarding Superman's copyright issues, Time Warner announced Friday that it will revert all intellectual property rights, chiefly the rights to characters, to their respective creators, and in some instances the heirs of those creators.
"We've decided to give our creators back their children," said a key Time
Over the past few years, IDW has become the premier publisher for licensed comics with properties like Ghostbusters, Star Trek, Godzilla, and Doctor Who under their belt, and today, they're getting even bigger with the huge announcement that they will be adapting Tommy Wiseau's groundbreaking film, The Room, into a five-issue comic book miniseries.
"The Room is a franchise with almost limitless potential," said IDW editor Irving D. Wilmore. "These are characters that have captured the imaginations of an entire generation, characters that
While readers are preparing for this summer's Flashpoint, DC has announced yet another world-shattering crossover today: DCU: DISARMED, a major turning point for the DC universe that sees the severed limbs of Lex Luthor, Arsenal, Aquaman, The KGBeast and others rising up with a sinister plan to destroy the DC Universe.
