Off-Panel: Duke Freshman Refuses to Read FUN HOME

Our daily round-up of news around the comics space, from the gutters and beyond.

“Several incoming freshmen decided not to read “Fun Home” because its sexual images and themes conflicted with their personal and religious beliefs. Freshman Brian Grasso posted in the Class of 2019 Facebook page July 26 that he would not read the book “because of the graphic visual depictions of sexuality,” igniting conversation among students.”

Blergh. Isn’t one of the points of college to expand your horizons and understand view points other than your own? (By sheer coincidence, Fun Home is also our podcast book of the month this month! Chime in!!)

“A time lapse view of SPX 2014 from the OOSA booth by tylerqtucker.”

This timelapse view of SPX 2014 is pretty awesome. (Also I keep squinting and looking for myself! I’ll be at SPX again this year.)

“ABC is close to a deal for a Mockingbird-centric pilot called Marvel’s Most Wanted, EW has confirmed.”

Oooookay then. Let’s hope this is more Agent Carter and less Agents OF S.H.I.E.L.D.
