There are some robot mummies in Mike Maihack’s Cleopatra in Space: Target Practice, and under most circumstances, robot mummies would be my favorite part of any comic book in which they appear. But this one also features teenage Cleopatra (who is, as the title suggests, in space) flying around on a flying sphinx cycle, which also has a side car for her cat, who talks. That’s awesome.

While I thought Ricky Gervais performed quite admirably in Muppets Most Wanted, and was at the center of one of the film’s funnier visual gags near the end, I have to admit I was somewhat disappointed that he was involved primarily as an actor rather than a writer. On the episode of The Ricky Gervais Show in which he discusses art with Stephen Merchant and Karl Pilkington, he joked that the only way to improve upon great stories like A Christmas Carol is to add Muppets, and suggested A Muppets Schindler’s List and a Sophie’s Choice adaptation called Miss Piggy’s Choice, visualized by the animators as shown above.

Wait, what’s the label on the case in the foreground of the first panel say…? MAN THING DROPPI— 

"Man-Thing Dropping"…?

Keep an eye on Previews to see if they ever make a prop replica of that. (Panels from Marvel’s Wolverine and The X-Men #22 by Jason Aaron and Nick Bradshaw).

Can the bad guys in Godzilla, the IDW comic by Duane Swierczynski and Simon Gane, just do that? Assign the name of a (potentially) pre-existing sauropod to a giant, bipedal sea monster? Just for marketing purposes?

And isn’t it kind of weird that Titanosaurus has a name that sounds like a real, prehistoric animal (because his name is appropriated from a real, prehistoric animal), whereas almost all the other Toho kaiju just have made-up fake-ass names? Like Mothra, Rodan, King Ghidorah—those might all sound like cool names for movie monsters, but they don’t sound like scientific names for new species like “Titanosaurus” does, you know?

This is the best thing ever. 

Just in case you were wondering what the best thing ever is. (It’s this.)

My favorite part of this extremely charming book is that Yeti isn’t necessarily angry or upset in the above image. That’s just his face. Apparently, Yeti just always makes that face.

If David Jolly really is a large white owl and they don’t mention it at all in the headline or sub-head, then I think they may be burying the lede on this one.
