Publishing | I presume this announcement that Wizard Entertainment is moving its entire operation to its New York City sales office means the company has sold is 35,000-square-foot facility in Congers, N.Y. Or else, as Tom Spurgeon points out, it means the company finally has fired enough people so that its staff can fit in the smaller space. [Press release, via Heidi MacDonald]

Creators | Penny Arcade creators Mike Krahulik and Jerry Holkins were recognized Thursday by the Washington state legislature for their work on Child’s Play, the charity the two founded to deliver games and toys to children’s hospitals. Since 2003 the organization has raised more than $3.5 million in donations. [Geekdad]

Webcomics | Cartoonist Jane Irwin has decided to end the historical webcomic Clockwork Comics because of her concerns over the depiction of racial stereotypes. [Clockwork Comics, via Johanna Draper Carlson]

Publishing | I love Douglas Wolk for digging through ancient copies of Amazing Heroes Preview Specials to compile this “Imaginary Library” of comics from the 1980s that were announced but failed to materialize. [Savage Critics]

Fandom | The “manga vs. comics” debate is tiresome. [The Eastern Edge, via Brigid Alverson]

Weirdness | Troubled Citigroup could use help from “corporate equivalent of the Justice League.” Apparently. [The New York Times]
