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

“In my ongoing quest to watch all of the Star Wars films, I have now arrived at Episode V—The Empire Strikes Back. I was expecting the movie to be about, you know, the Empire’s forces striking back. I was wrong. To my surprise, I spent two hours watching a movie about a green, diminutive 900-year-old with the telekinetic powers of Matilda, the voice of Cookie Monster, and a deep commitment to the Socratic method.”

If you’re not too precious about the things you love, this is hilarious. But also quite poignant.

“I used to refer to Gotham as DC’s twist on Muppet Babies, but I’m officially eating my hat about those jokes, because the upcoming TV show DC’s Superhero Girls created an alternate universe that put all of DC’s heroines in high school together (and also makes them all high school-aged).”

Will watch.
