The Linkage Went Out So We Replaced It

The time has once again come for Couch Thing to waste some space by providing a list of links to things on the internet that we find interesting and hope that you will find interesting too. Here it is, your intermittent linkage:

Steven Atwell discusses comic book history in depth and ties it into real world politics and economics. This continuing series is fascinating and worthy of your time.Read it at Lawyers Guns and Money.

Build A Bear now has Doctor Who bears. This may be the cutest cynical cash grab ever aimed at my cynical little heart. Gizmodo has the details.

Vox has a thoughtful piece on Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn (now known as Harley Quinn and the Birds of Prey for some reason) and why it is unfair that this film is under so much pressure to be the great feminist superhero movie. At Vox.

Sonic the Hedgehog is making way more money than I would have expected. Boxoffice Mojo.

The matrix meets Office Space is a level of nerdy that we may not need. A/V Club.

Like Me. I mean, please Like Me.

I think we can all agree that no single person on the planet wants to see a remake of The Saint. And yet, here we are.

That's it for now kids. Check back later for more.
