Sunday Links for March 20

This week brought a lot of great announcements with C2E2 just starting! None of the IGH team could make it, and it looks like we are missing something amazing!

Best news I heard all week? Sailor Moon is coming back to the US, in brand new graphic novels! I was a big fan of the show and can't wait to start reading all new stories.

Den of Geek wrote an fantastic article about whether belated sequels are better than franchise reboots. I have to admit, I am a little excited for Scream 4 but terrified that it will disappoint me.

Warren Ellis, in his effortless entertainment for me, has challenged fans to redesign the cover of Fantastic Four #1, without knowing any details of the comic. Check out some of the great covers that people came up with over at Comics Alliance. After seeing these, I have two questions: What is Roargasm's power and where is my Horde Granny one-shot?!

Kotaku has an article about the abuse that women gamers receive. I wish I could say that this is the first time I have read an article about this, but sadly it's not. In the article, they highlight a website called Fat, Ugly or Slutty, which compiles all of the inappropriate comments that gamers get sent. Some of them are funny, some are stupid, and some just are lewd. Not surprisingly, all of them seem to have spelling errors. Please be safe out there, and if you receive anything threatening in-game, please report that player immediately.

The CBLDF issued an advisory this week about the legal dangers of crossing international borders. Apparently, US Border Control can and will check and seize anything without cause, just because it might be illegal. Because of this, many adult comics have been the cause of problems.

On my want list are these K'Nex Mario Kart toys! I'm a big fan of Mario Kart, despite the fact that Getsuyobi beats me every time. I finally have a way to get back at the Goombas that ruined my chances at winning! I'm a little sad but I will have my revenge!
