We’re still learning how to do our events listings here — minor things like correct dates and so on. Please note that we gave the wrong date for the Marvel Encyclopedia signing yesterday — it’s in NOVEMBER not this week. We imagine we’ll get the hang of it one of these days, but in the meantime we’ll keep plugging along. Because it’s all for YOU, never forget it, dear readers.

We’d also like to remind our readers that we always welcome hints, tips and linkage. The Beat is most places but can’t be everywhere. That’s for Underdog. If you think we saw something, we probably didn’t — better safe than sorry!

In other matters, The Beat welcomes aboard our intern, Cindy Arias, who is helping out with various logistical things. Luckily she’s not allergic to turnips, so far, so good.
