Now we know who really Rules the Night

Charles Lasko Colden

Big-time congrats to I Rule the Night/Fishtown creator Kevin Colden and A Mess of Everything creator Miss Lasko-Gross on the birth of their son Charles Lasko Colden. Charles was born Nov. 24 at 3:20 a.m.

Per Kevin, “Mother and son are resting comfortably at home, Dad is sleeping in fits.”

Happy birthday, Alan Moore and Mickey Mouse!

Mickey Mouse and Alan Moore

This is probably the only day of the year you’ll see those two names together in a headline.

Today marks the 56th birthday of the writer of Watchmen, V for Vendetta, Swamp Thing, From Hell and countless other influential and entertaining comics. It’s also the 81st anniversary of the release of the animated short Steamboat Willie, and the date The Walt Disney Company celebrates as Mickey’s birthday (despite his actual first appearance in Plane Crazy some six months earlier).
