Wow, where did the week go? It’s almost as if this week was somehow shorter than last week. I wonder why….
In this week’s edition we offer some serious cute, look forward to the possible primetime return of a certain Amazon, and are bemused by workplace team building.
We Clicksters make it no secret that we love comic books. One of our favorite artists is Amy Mebberson. Amy has illustrated books featuring the Muppets, Strawberry Shortcake, and several Pixar characters. She has also created a wonderful series of comic strips called Pocket Princesses which routinely manages to make the famed Disney Princesses somehow more hilarious and adorable. Of course, sometimes the strip sees other guest stars as is the case in the newest strip.
You can see more of Amy’s work here.
In other comics related news, this weekend Baltimore will host the appropriately titled Baltimore Comic Con. While nowhere near as large as SDCC, it does boast an impressive list of creators and events.
It appears that geek TV network G4 is poised to rebrand itself closer to the GQ brand as a “Men’s Interest Network”. We thought that’s what Spike TV was supposed to be.
While we at Click consider ourselves a great team, we understand the need for team building on the corporate level. Still, we’re pretty sure this isn’t the gold standard.
20th Century Fox had already done something extremely unique with the DVD/Blu-ray preorders for Prometheus. Now it seems they’re poised to push the home entertainment envelope even further with HD downloads several weeks ahead of the DVD/Blu-ray release. If other companies copy this model, things will become very interesting for the Home Entertainment marketplace.
We’re excited to see Liam Neeson back for Taken 2 this next month. We also got a kick out of this hilarious mashup trailer.
Finally, if you haven’t check out Google’s doodle today, do yourself a favor and head over now. Have a happy weekend!
