    – It wasn’t certain if NBC was going to bring “Constantine” back to finish out its run (let alone to see a second season), but the show will finish out its 13 episode run starting on January 16th. I have no idea where anyone else stands, but I think the show kicks ass and I hope it somehow has an epic ratings boost and NBC keeps it around.

    – Marvel and ESPN have teamed up for a project called “1 of 1: Genesis” in which athletes and their origin stories are told in a documentary format, intercut with comic footage and interviews with the athletes to show off how they’re real life superheroes. Or something like that. It’s available now, but it looks kind of lame, to be totally honest.

    – Speaking of real life superheroes, Chris Evans – aka Captain America – is a real life superhero for making a kid with a brain tumor happy by visiting him. Sure, a lot of celebrities do this type of thing as a PR stunt, but Evans just seems like a great guy. A+.

    – Vulture put together a rather epic piece on Valiant Entertainment, “Superhero Comics’ Strangest Success Story”. It’s a neat piece featuring a publisher who is quietly doing the whole connected universe thing better than Marvel or DC is most of the time.

    – Igor Kordey was featured in Belgrade’s Design Week, and Design Boom put together a feature on him that definitely made me appreciate his work more.

    This article from CNBC is pretty embarrassing for them, doing everything short of putting “Biff! Bam! Pow!” in the title as they look at the mystical success of comics in the modern era. Did you know that people that aren’t the geekiest of geeks ever like comics? Le sigh.
