What if there was an event where Cosplay wasn’t just icing on the cake but the main event? Well now there is! Anime News Network reports that later this month is International Cosplay Day and it may be coming to a city near you. Check it out!



Over at Ain’t It Cool News, longtime contributor Quint sat down with Mark Millar and talked about a lot of nonsense as well as a lot of Kick-Ass 2. It’s a fun read, as the always-interesting Millar is quite candid.



Yes, this Batman vs Superman or Superman vs Batman or whatever it’s called (Why can’t it be World’s Finest, God, why?!?) is spawning stories daily. But today Batman on Film posted an unconfirmed (officially) piece regarding the age of Batman in the upcoming film. There’s not much but speculation going on over there, but personally I’m rooting for Jon Hamm. Can we get this guy in a superhero movie already? Sheesh!



The many connections Superman has, thanks to Rusted Mecha.




A news station in Overland Park, KS (near Kansas City) has a story on independent comic book creators gathering for an event called “Independents Day.” Welcome to earth.
