When Spider-Man and Batman share a subway car in Toronto, you have to wonder who screams, “My parents are dead!” best.
Speaking of the web-slinger, Peter Parker may be perpetually between 16 and 30, but his title turns 50 this year. In honor of a half a century of power and responsibility, Blastr checks out 50 great Spidey covers.

Marvel announced that they’re going to do their first-ever universe-wide reboot, Marvel NOW, which is in no way prompted by DC’s New 52. TJ’s been thinking some thoughts about it, but what I’m really jazzed about is the apparent return of Marvel Girl, ugh, I mean Jean Grey.

F. Stott Fitzgerald knew fantastic literature required lots of revision. That’s why these letters between he and his editor about his first submitted draft of The Great Gatsby are so enlightening.
Collider has a history of Pixar by the numbers, including the Rotten Tomatoes score of every movie. Got to wonder who the 1% was that gave Toy Story 3 a bad review and if the wizard ever gave them that heart they asked for.
