"Changing [Ravager's mom] Lillian from Khmer to Hmong was my choice, a result of research into Vietnam-era history of US involvement with the various Asian cultures of the region. In keeping with Marv Wolfman’s original concept of Deathstroke’s rescue of Lillian Worth, I was looking to ground this story in as much reality as possible, which included properly motivating Deathstroke/Slade to rescue this woman. Many Hmong had assisted the US military during the war and needed to be evacuated from Southeast Asia. I felt having Lillian be one of those displaced Hmong, working as a US intelligence subcontractor in Cambodia rather than be a native Khmer, created more dramatic possibilities for the series. It never occurred to me, and it obviously should have, that Deathstroke would have Khmer fans or that anyone would be disappointed or offended." -- Christopher J. Priest

having woken to the news of the passing of the magnificent British actor John Hurt, so I thought I'd post a quick scene from the adaption of a classic UK filmed movie that he's not even in. (Look, it made sense to me at the time, but it's a Saturday morning, my logical processes aren't warmed up yet).

A reminder that there’s “homage”, “parody”, “piss take” and then, somewhere waaaay beyond those, is “How LEGO treats it’s Star Wars licence”.

From the UK "LEGO Star Wars" comic.

Here's another Freddy Krueger story from Wildstorm's 'Nightmare on Elm Street' comics (published under "New Line's Tales of Horror #1").  In my opinion it absolutely nails Freddy as a  character.

Warning for the usual violence and gore.

Dr. Seuss made political cartoons back in the 40's, some of the most famous coming out during or before World War II. Have a look...

Warning for racism and disturbing images...

I'm cautiously optimistic. Crystal Dynamics' Tomb Raider was awesome, so they clearly know how to make good games.
