For anyone who still had a little doubt in his or her mind about whether Frank Miller -- the man who wrote and drew Sin City, which is basically all about tough guys fightin' over dames (and also lady ninjas hanging out with prostitutes) -- is nostalgic for a perceived golden age of dudeliness, look no further than his new 20Q interview in Playboy.

"Family Guy" creator Seth McFarlane reveals in the new issue of Playboy that as virtually every fan of the series has always suspected, the matricidal toddler Stewie Griffin is, in fact, gay: We had an episode that went all the way to the script phase in which Stewie does come out. It had to do with the harassment he took from other kids at school. He ends up going back in time to prevent a pass
If yesterday's preview of Vertigo's new Crime line in Playboy wasn't enough for comic fans, it looks like the gentleman's magazine has plenty more in store for the comics-inclined audience with a six-page comic book adaptation of a scene from "Inglourious Basterds," Quentin Tarantino's upcoming Nazi-killing opus.
