Trying to get back into gear, here's a little linkdump for you...

ComicMix now has online comics. They've started the second part of their initiative. It was a good sight with just the articles and podcasts, it is now getting better. The first offering: "GrimJack: The Manx Cat".

Comic Book Urban Legends Revealed #122.

Greg Hatcher looks at witches in comic books.

Katie Cook has a great gallery of her artwork up, which includes this wonderful Aquaman and Tempest from a card set:

Aquaman and Tempest Cards

Via Blog@Newsarama. Be sure to check out the rest of the gallery. There's some good Doctor Who stuff there, too.

More on the Eightball flap. I checked out Ice Haven from the library, and didn't see anything that qualified as porn in it. Disturbing, maybe even disgusting, but not porn. I think that girl's parents are just a wee bit oversensitive.

Morgan on Sarah Jane Adventures. I loved it. It's definitely aimed at children, but that's a positive in my book. I love Doctor Who. I like Torchwood. And Sarah Jane is great as well.

Saving a Seattle Denny's Restaurant. I just drove by that Denny's the other day, noticed the land use proposals, and felt a pang of regret that we would be losing this great goofy building. And on a similar note: Free Ballard! (links via Vintage Seattle)

I don't know how to categorize this story, but I found it worth reading.

Why Knockoffs are good for Fashion.

Way cool Baseball Stats Slide Rule ad on Polite Scott's blog. By coincidence, Slashdot had an article on Slide Rules recently.

More on the Peruvian Meteorite.

Oooh, Bio-Optic Organized Knowledge device.

Darn. I wanted to get one of these, but I won't have enough money in time to get one. Maybe they'll make the offer available again later.

Mark Twain wanted to defeat copyright limits, but his plan was intelligent and useful, instead of the Disney way of changing the law.

Vintage Seattle shows off the Seahawks in the Kingdome. Cool!
