The collection of posts that may not warrant a full entry of their own. Excelsio — er, onward and upward:
Billionaire financier Ronald O. Perelman has agreed pay $80 million to settle a lawsuit accusing him of helping to divert $553.5 million in notes when he controlled Marvel. I’ll do a better run-down of the financials after I have a chance to slog through them. Ironically, Perelman had always wanted to turn Marvel into an intellectual property powerhouse in the mold of Disney, but it only happened after he drove Marvel into bankruptcy and bolted.
And speaking of legal matters, Gordon vs. Gordon. It’s a shame when things go bad. I wonder what will happen at the custody hearings.
And speaking of Gotham City going-ons (what a segue!) somebody else has built a working Tumbler. No word on what else he keeps in his basement or his belfry.
Don Heck’s Lovecraft work to finally see the light of day. Ai! Ai! P’tagh i’dw ryall!
Tom Brevoort is attempting to take over DC Comics. Watch out, Paul…
And just because some of you might want to know how to give yourself pointed ears… well, here you are. We’re not responsible for any pon farr, though.
