Join us behind the jump for more, and don’t worry: we’ve provided annotations for non-comics readers. You can read all of Mozzocco’s cartoons here, and find out what the dogs of the superhero universe think about the election. Read more…
Who needs to go out and see “The Amazing Spider-man” when you can look at this doppelgänger? Okay, so maybe he isn’t quite as beautiful as Andrew Garfield, but it can’t be denied that this Mwanza Flat Headed Agama lizard looks an awful lot like your friendly neghiborhood Spider-man, even down to the pose this photographer caught him in. Although these lizards are native to Africa, my spidey sense tells me that they are poised to be come the designer pet of nerdom. As a Spider-man franchisee devotee, I know I’m a fan. [Daily Mail]

There were so many people at this dang Gala, it felt like more of an event than the Academy Awards (which is a pretty big event in celeb land). We could have included so many more — Emmy Rossum, Fergie-Ferg, Molly Sims, etc. — but these ten ladies about the jump stood out the most.
