Comic Book Resources kicks off its list of the best X-Men stories.

Anthony Weiner is Carlos Danger, and someone did a mock movie poster for that film. With a special appearance by Eliot Spitzer.

Some people at the Times whine about Nate Silver. I suspect that a big part of it is that he was willing to call the media out on non-stories and hype, which they don’t care for.

At SDCC, George R.R. Martin discussed the influence of comic books on his work.

Researchers used edit wars on wikipedia to figure out what the most controversial topics were. And I’m inspired to write a book about a George W Bush (#1 on the English language list) type President being a Secret Muslim (Muhammed is #3 on the list.)

Mark Oppenheimer of The New Republic writes about liberal puritans in Oregon.

About Thomas Mets

I’m a comic book fan, wannabe writer, politics buff and New Yorker. I don’t actually follow baseball. In the Estonian language, “Mets” simply means forest, or lousy sports team. Currently, I’m writing a few comic books about my grandparents’ experiences in Soviet Estonia for Grayhaven comics. You can email me at mistermets@gmail.com
