  • andPOP has posted a new article on the 20 minutes of footage of the new film that Paramount has been previewing for a while.

  • The December 15 episode of CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory featured one of the characters, Sheldon, receiving a napkin supposedly autographed by Leonard Nimoy (Spock).

Re: News Bullets

I just read over the AICN report on the comic, and find I'm more curious than before to get my hands on it. I just checked Borders yesterday and they didn't have a copy. Those of you who have found it, where are you getting it (outside of standard comic shops?)
