Wild party man Andrew W.K. is known for his high energy rockin’ anthems, his white attire…and now that he is a Brony. It seems that he has signed on as a speaker for Canterlot Gardens, an Ohio convention for My Little Pony Fans, where he’ll deliver an inspirational speech.
Frank Doyle—a prolific writer for Archie—and Steve Skeates, a busy comics writers of the ’70s, have won the Finger Award, which honors two writers, one living, one deceased, whose contributions to the comics medium have been underappreciated. Two great choices. The awards will be presented during this year’s Eisner Awards.
Speak of the devil! Only hours ago we were making jokes about Chris Ware joining the Cirque du Soleil and now there is nows of an actual Cirque du Soleil comic!
Sadly it is not from Ware—we can just imagine his version of Limber 12-year-old Chinese Acrobats Stories—instead, it’s from Marvel, in a custom comic that ties in with the Vegas spectacle Kà which you will be able to get at this year’s Comic-Con.

–I learned something new today. Remember how Watchmen started out as a treatment for the Charlton characters DC had purchased? Come to find out out, DC didn’t purchase the rights to all the Charlton characters and Dynamite now has the rights to Peter Cannon/Thunderbolt. As in, the prototype for Watchmen’s Ozymandias.
