Hey everyone it’s time for another edition of THINGS I THINK YOU MIGHT LIKE BECAUSE I REALLY DO -A-THON! Hopefully all of you read that in your best cartoon or old science fiction movies announcer voice because if you didn’t it really loses all the excitement and then I just look like a sad, strange, lonely man. Honestly though I really need to think of a better title for these things. That being said, it’s been a huge week for comics already and we aren’t even to Wednesday yet. We begin this edition with the end of an Era.
Karen Berger, the executive editor of Vertigo has stepped down. I’ll be writing another short post to talk about what this amazing editor has meant to me personally but until then you should read all the nice things Comic Industry Professionals had to say about her and her tenure at Vertigo over the last 25 years, at Comics Alliance.

iFanboy takes a look at the already blooming career of one of my favorite artists Aaron Kuder. Eliciting memories of another of my favorites Art Adams, Aaron Kuder’s work is uniquely his own and along with Chris Burnham, Chris Samnee, David Aja, Fiona Staples, Becky Cloonan, and Nick Pitarra, he is a part of my top artists of the decade. Look at all his amazing art and a great article by iFanboy at this link right here.
Moving right along to TV news for a moment. My favorite character in The Walking Dead comic book series is finally becoming a part of the award winning TV series. Chad L. Coleman, best known for his work on The Wire, has been cast as Tyreese and I couldn’t be more excited than I already am. Comic Book Resources talks with the actor about the rest of the season. Here
Back in the world of Comics that I never leave for very long, CBR looks at the history of Green Arrow, from his conception to Arrow the somewhat promising but not that great show on the CW. Click here because you know you want to know more.
In the why these people are awesome and will continue to receive my money news. Writer Matt Fraction has pledged his entire royalty check from the upcoming Hawkeye #7 to the Red Cross for Hurricane Sandy relief, the issue in question deals with how the Title’s namesakes deal with the hurricane and it’s aftermath in their own version of the Atlantic Northeast. You can read more about the awesomeness that is Matt Fraction at Newsarama.
Last but not least over at The Mary Sue, Anne Hathaway talks about her love for Catwoman and the possibility of reprising the character. Full disclosure, I loved Anne Hathaway as Selena Kyle, she was one of the best parts of TDKR in my personal opinion. So you should go a read this if you don’t read anything else. Because Anne Hathaway is amazing and perfect and nothing you say will convince me otherwise.
That’s all she wrote for today folks, once again please keep in mind that everything I am sending you to is the intellectual property of the respective sites and I just want to show you things I love in the hope that you will love it too.
