Lazy Autumn-like Thursday Linkblogging

If you find yourself in the vicinity of Bangor, Maine, the weekend of September 19th and 20th, you'd do well to attend the BangPop! 2009 Comic and Pop Culture Con. Last year's inaugural event was quite well received, and I'm definitely making an effort to visit the old home town to go this year.

Inkville's list of the ten greatest Superman villains. Glad to see Silver Banshee made the list! She was in the first John Byrne Superman story I ever read, and she imprinted on me, I think.
