Like something out of a comic book….

Lions Rescue Ethiopian Girl:

“A 12-year-old girl who was abducted and beaten by men trying to force her into a marriage was found being guarded by three lions who apparently had chased off her captors, a policeman said Tuesday.”

That’s kinda cool.

Also cool was BATMAN BEGINS, which and I just got back from seeing. I actually think this one was better than Burton’s two outings. Makes me want to read some Batman comics again…which makes it a nice coincidence that there’s a new series, All-Star Batman & Robin (which looks like DC is doing a Marvel-Ultimate-style side continuity), written by Frank Miller and drawn by Jim Lee, starting in July.

  1. All-Star Batman & Robin (which looks like DC is doing a Marvel-Ultimate-style side continuity

    Just a note: it may share the “side continuity” aspect with the Ultimate universe, but it’s got some very different goals. This is Classic Batman & Robin (Bruce and Dick), meant to be accessible to young people and those whose image of the characters was fixed with the Super Friends and the old television show.

  2. I concur

    I would definitely agree that it was better than Burton’s two turns at it.

    I very much like the fact that instead of holding your breath waiting for Wayne to become Batman, you enjoy Wayne just as much because he IS Batman. The costume and the equipment are props that enhance his abilites.
