(Not Very) Secret Invasion

Marvel has releasaed a checklist for their Secret Invasion storyline, as well as it's tie ins. CBR has copied the list and posted it here. How an 8 issue miniseries tunred into a 30+ book crossover, I have no idea. If you prefer a nice postcard sized copy of the checklist, hit up your local comic book shop, they should have a pile to hand out.

In other "pop" news...

A Comics Blog has posted that Gail Simone is writing a comic book featuring Avril Lavigne. (originally found at Apparently invading my manga aisle wasn't enough...

Gail herself posted a response at scans_daily - (it was stating that the song has a decidedly stalker feel to it)

Bingo. The video is surprisingly black-hearted as well.

And I have to admit, when someone offers me the crazy assignment that should not possibly work, that is catnip to me.

There's a long story why I took this job, but I had a lot of fun and it turned out as a very interesting experiment.

Outreach, outreach, outreach.


------------- make me a torn little fangirl. You singlehandedly made me adore Birds of Prey again and recommend your run to other geeks. This is a serious stretch. Is this like one of those 'How much do you love me?' questions? Are you holding chocolates behind your back or a flyswatter to beat me about the head and face with? ?_? You've made me invoke the Biting Pear of Salamanca.

Britney "AMV"

So Britney Spears made a music video that has an anime feel to it. It's already been pulled from youtube for some reason, but I found it again (hooray google!) at TV Crunch. (who, in turn found it on myspace tv via Britney's Official MySpace page.) Sorry to break your hearts, but I find that this video is completely non-offensive. (hell, I even looked for the video to buy on iTunes) The song is just a standard pop/dance track and the animation isn't bad at all. Britney is still a strung out idiot, but media vultures picking on this is just silly.
