Comic books bonanza

Read Abu Aardvark on the the Green Lantern and Ultimates 2 and Sandmonkey on the Israeli mutant in the X-Men. Clearly there's a correlation between an interest in Middle East politics and an interest in comic books -- a taste for high-action drama, perhaps?

When you're done, if you're lucky enough to have access to it, watch the Tintin documentary tonight on PBS, or just drool over the trailer.
