It was new comic release day yesterday, did you grab your pull list?  I didn’t, but that’s because I couldn’t sneak away from work.  The big news that broke yesterday was Julie Taymor being put to the side as far as directing the Spider-Man musical and it’s delayed…. again…. shocker.  Anyone want to take me up on the bet it doesn’t get released this year?  Below is the rest of the news that made the tubes.

WisCon Rescinds Invite to Elizabeth Moon

Bookmark and Share

WisCon which bills itself as a “feminist science fiction” convention has rescinded it’s Guest of Honor invitation to science fiction author Elizabeth Moon.  The reason for the cancellation of the invitation was due to a blog post where she covered 9/11, religion and remarks about the Islamic community center in lower Manhattan.  All pretty touchy subjects.

Organizers had expressed concern over the post but decided to rescind the invitation.

The convention will be held in Madison, Wisconsin in May, 2011.
