@taichokage:

Errm, did someone put in Frank Cho, Ed Benes, Mike Choi, and Jim Lee without knowing they're artists? Not characters.

@Whats_out_the_bag:

Done!

Saw this on ANN. It's pretty horrible to hear someone getting assaulted at a comic convention:

San Diego Police Arrest 29-Year-Old Male in Alleged Assault on Comic-Con Cosplayer

Teenage victim was found bleeding and unconscious on Sunday morning

San Diego Harbor Police stated they have arrested a 29-year-old Justin Kalior on Sunday in the alleged assault of a 17-year-old cosplayer at San Diego's Comic-Con International event. Kalior is being charged with "sexual contact with a minor and contributing to the delinquency of minor."

The cosplayer, whose name is being withheld because she is a minor, was found unconscious, beaten, and bleeding near the Marriott Marquis and Marina pool by the San Diego Convention Center around 1:00 a.m. Sunday, according to police Sgt. Todd Rakos. Her mother stated that the attack happened on her daughter's birthday, and her first visit to the event. She was taken to the hospital for treatment.

“My daughter was great about checking in all day with me with her phone and when I lost contact with her I kept trying to contact her and I knew something was wrong,” the victim's mother said.

Mixed reports state the girl was suffering from cranial bleeding and admitted to ICU. Authorities would only state that her injuries were serious. Police believe the victim knew Kalior and was with him for most of the day and the two left a party at 11 p.m. Kalior has not been charged with assault.

The police department issued the following statement:

Harbor Police arrested a 29-year-old man early Sunday morning, July 27th in a hotel at 333 West Harbor Drive. He was booked into San Diego County Jail at 11:20 a.m. on charges of sexual contact with a minor and contributing to the delinquency of minor. The victim, a juvenile female, was transported to a hospital for evaluation and treatment. The Harbor Police Investigations Unit is handling the incident. This investigation is ongoing.

Police said the victim was cosplaying as a female version of Roger Rabbit, and anyone who recalls seeing her between the hours of 11 p.m. and 2 a.m., should contact the police department at CrimeStoppers tip line: (888) 580-8477 or e-mail sdhpiwatch@portofsandiego.org.

Kalior posted bail on Sunday and is scheduled to appear in court on August 5 if charges are filed.

@GokaiRed:

I watched Son of Batman, and I was waiting for Assault on Arkham last month. I forgot the release date. Looks like the digital release was available on July 29.

Bought Gran't Morrisons Doom Patrol omnibus recently. Completly worth it. Also started reading Lucifer. It's amazing.

@KingOfAsh:

Anything from Grant is worth it for me. I think I've enjoyed everything I've read of his.

Did you read Sandman before reading Lucifer?

Some knowledge. I'm from Liverpool, England. The writer of Lucifer, Mike Carey is also from my area. :D Boom!

I mean to read more of him, I've read Animal Man. That ending, eh?

I've read half of Sandman, so it makes sense (so far).

Cool! Have you met him?!

@KingOfAsh:

Yeah. Should listen to this podcast of Grant.

Podcast Part 1.

Podcast Part 2.

He talks about his works.

And another one.

Great for listening to when you have work to do.

Sadly, I've not met him. :(
