    Damn, I can't top that at all. But at least I have flying penguins over at my blog…

    Not since Robert Rodrguiez was annouced to be directing T3 has there been a better announcement.I remember back in the day I revealed a rumor that DC had lost the rights to Wonder Woman due to a lapse in publishing that allowed the estate to cancel the deal. They announced that they had signed with Marvel, and DC claimed there had been negotiations while the contract was still valid. I posted that on 4/30, and promised more details in "two days".Two days later, I explained that while DC could not prove a back-room deal, it did give them some latitude in what could and couldn't be used by Marvel. For example, they couldn't use the new (at the time) "WW logo" on her costume. And whan Marvel agreed, DC then said since the initials WW would remind people of that logo, they would have to remove them from the character's name. So marvel would begin publishing Onder Oman in a few months.Now the sad part was, some people actually called DC and asked if it was true they'd lost the rights to Wonder Woman.If it weren't for all these morals of mine, I could be a MILLIONAIRE by now, just taking advantage of people's naivete…

    Although I'm happy for the Siegels, I'm guessing everyone is aware of today's date.

      Sure, you say that now. Just remember, last year we ran this piece………and six weeks later, they were in mediation.Our track record on these things is not to be laughe– okay, maybe it is to be laughed at. But that doesn't mean we're going to be wrong. No matter what those guys at Oni claim.

    I wonder if Ajax will fit in Beppo's costume? Does Simone get to dress up like Supergirl? Dibs on Super-Turtle!Ah, if only…..

    • Glenn Hauman says:

      We're checking with the lawyers now. Best guess is that Simone can dress in his costume, but can't be called Supergirl.On the other hand, if you want to do the story that says that Simone is the daughter of Clark and Lois, I think we're cool.

    In a related decision, the rights for Krypto and Squeaky the Cat have reverted to Russ Maheras, an eccentric comics dilettante and raconteur from Chicago. Court records show that Maheras inherited the disputed rights from his uncle (twice removed), Ellis Harlanson, who, in 1976, allegedly won them in a Frisbee death match with an unnamed DC public relations executive. “There was some question as to the validity of the ownership document, which was hand-written on DC stationery and signed with an X,” said Maheras. “But after a thorough legal review, testimony by three independent handwriting experts, a psychic reading, a side trip to Vegas, and corresponding all-night hot-tub party, the judge ruled in my favor.” When asked what his plans were for the two venerable comics characters, Maheras said he planned to do a 300-issue series, “ala Cerebus.” And while he wouldn’t reveal any specific plot details, Maheras hinted that the storyline would involve, “a Cosmic Hairball, three pool cleaners, a magic dog collar, and an Austrian hoppy-toad named Arnold.”
