BitterNews for February 12, 2010

Eduardo Barreto is “gravely ill”. This guy is one of the most underrated artists working in comics today – although he has been doing the Judge Parker strip recently (I wonder how many papers carry that at this point?). Hope he gets well soon.

Roger Daltrey has joined me in not thinking much of the Who performance at the Super Bowl.

Guns N Roses played at the former site of CBGB’s last night as part of Fashion Week (cannot imagine the size of that paycheck) and they covered AC/DC’s Whole Lotta Rosie. The 17 song set included a scant 3 songs from Chinese Democracy.

Congrats to Mindy Kaling, who wrote the funniest episode of the Office this season so far – it aired last night. She plays Kelly Kapoor on the show.

Happy Valentines weekend! launched today. Yes, it is what you think. Click at your own risk. If your eyeballs melt or your house explodes, don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Hot Toys revealed their Sarah Conner figure today as a “Valentines” surprise. Considering the target audience, this may be the only female figure they will ever get in their house, even after paying $150.00. Looks great, of course.

Kelly Bensimon is in the new Playboy! Who is Kelly Bensimon? I can’t be bothered to read the caption under her photo on the cover….

New Shag shriner vinyl figure revealed at Rotfugi. Looks awesome!

Matty posted to Facebook that the DCUC series 12 sets are on sale the 16th of Feb, although this is in direct contradiction to previous statements from Matty, which claimed March 15th. So who knows? Certainly not Mattel.

  1. Judge Parker is in 175 papers. Still some major ones at that. Washington Post, Atlanta Journal Constitution, Los Angeles Daily News, Dallas Morning News to name but a few.

    Hope Eduardo can get better soon.
