ComicMix Quick Picks: April 2, 2014
A Wednesday Window Closing Wrap-Up™ for y’all. Here we go:
- So, what did we miss yesterday in Internet April Fool wackiness? Bleeding Cool has a roundup.
- How does Seth Meyers really spend his late nights? Reading comics on Comixology, apparently.
- Coming soon to BBC America: The Real History of Science Fiction. I’ll believe it when I see it.
- Speaking of science fiction history, The Hitchhikers’ Guide To The Galaxy text adventure game from Infocom has found its way online. You still have: no tea. But don’t panic.
- With con season starting up again, Allison Types has compiled a list of Comic Book Industry Pro Tips. Recommended.
- If you’re a parent, here are 8 Reasons To Let Your Kids Read Comics. Take that, Dr. Wertham!
- Mystery novelists are now doing crossovers. Just wait till Nick Fury shows up at the end to recruit them.
- And finally, Lorenzo Semple Jr., creator of the 60′s Batman TV series and writer of such films as Never Say Never Again, King Kong (1976), Papillion, Three Days of the Condor, and The Parallax View, passed away in his home in Los Angeles Friday of natural causes, a day after turning 91. Without him, Batman may not have even had a 30th anniversary and here we are now at 75 and counting. The New York Times has his obituary. Our condolences to his family and friends.
Anything else? Consider this an open thread.
