Remember that TMNT was a comicbook before it was anything else?


Who else thinks it's kind of weird that there's going to be a cartoon, and a movie, and a comic series all at the same time, and none of them are going to be in the same continuity?

Well, that's not entirely true: IDW is going to be supplementing its "main" TMNT book with one based on the animated series, but you know what we mean.

In store today: "Arrow" Oliver Queen/Deathstroke two-pack

If you're a fan of the CW's awesome Arrow show, you might like this set of Starling City's mysterious vigilante and his arch-enemy:


They're sold together, and are about 7" tall, so they'll fit right in with all the other DC Direct figures. Ollie has his bow and several arrows, while Deathstroke has two guns, a sword, a knife, and an extra pair of hands. Good stuff!

A free online course about comics

Remember when UC Irvine had that free online course about The Walking Dead? Now there's a similar course (also on the same site, and also totally free) all about using comicbooks to discuss social issues.

The Walking Dead class was a lot of fun - it brought up interesting issues, had interviews with the cast, and you got badges for participating - and it looks like this new course is going to be similar. Some of the interviewees will include Mark Waid, Scott Snyder, Jeff Lemire, Warren Ellis, Denny O'Neil, Jason Aaron, Gene Yang and more. It's a great way to hear all these folks talk about comics from the comfort of your own home.

If you enroll, let us know. It'll be interesting to see how the class is.
