"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
At this point, you’ve probably already seen the soon-to-be iconic photo of an irate Miami Heat fan flipping off Chicago Bull Joakim Noah as he exited the court after being ejected from last night’s playoff game. Well, it turns out she’s also weighed in on Marvel’s last two movies, and, well, she didn’t seem to like them any more than she does the Bulls…
Last Sunday, my daughter and I settled in to watch the final episodes of Young Justice and Green Lantern: The Animated Series while enjoying a leisurely breakfast. It’s become a bit of a tradition to catch up on the latest adventures of Razer & Aya (her favorite GL characters) and the newest twists and turns in Artemis and Aqualad’s dangerous subterfuge while munching on a bagel or some oatmeal. I’d been preparing her for quite a while for the unfortunate end of both of her favorite shows, so, after giving her the proverbial two-minute warning that after today, there will be no more new cartoons starring these characters, we fired up the DVR and clicked play.
After all these years editing Augie (over half a decade – jeez), and I had no clue that he was actually a masked vigilante. The evidence, as provided by Mark Millar and John Romita, Jr. in the latest issue of “Hit Girl,” is pretty incontrovertible:

A couple of weeks ago I was back in Los Angeles and got to join CBR Executive Producer Jonah Weiland at a Los Angeles Clippers game at Staples Center. It was my first basketball game and we had a great game (they won!)!
I snapped this photo of Jonah when he wasn’t looking and figured I’d post it for him today for good luck. The Clippers play their second first round playoff game against the Memphis Grizzlies tonight. This last Sunday, the Clippers came back from 24 down with 8 minutes left in the game to beat the Grizzlies in historic fashion. Let’s hope the Clippers can win again on the road tonight in Game 2 because, hey, if they do win tonight, Jonah will be in an excellent mood on Thursday and that’s always a good thing for the CBR staff!
