The new "Mission: Impossible—The Ghost Protocol" trailer has the world talking about Tom Cruise once again. Better yet, it's got Simon Pegg running around on the big screen once more, which, depending on whether you're reading Edgar Wright's tweets or Dylan Teague's tweets, could be a good thing or a bad thing.
One item of interest that's definitely good is the new "Savage Dragon" #177 cover that Erik Larsen showed off last night. A radioactive Godzillan Osama Bin Laden monster rising from the ocean became one of the most cliché jokes on Twitter following the Al Qaeda leader's death and burial at sea. Personally, I like him better as a cover subject. Check out a link to that brilliant piece of work and how Neil Gaiman felt going on Craig Ferguson's show Tuesday.

@ErikJLarsen Working on this cover. Bin Laden is back as a giant irradiated monster out to destroy America. http://twitpic.com/5ih43h

"MI: The Ghost Protocol" pt. 1: @BrianReed I admit I have a soft spot (in mah brayne) for the Mission Impossible flicks. But Brad Bird directing? I'll get somewhat excited for that.
-Brian Reed, Writer ("Ms. Marvel," "Secret Invasion: Front Line")
"MI: The Ghost Protocol" pt. 2: @edgarwright Mission Impossible trailer looks ace. Although, one film later I still can't process my pal @SimonPegg in scenes with Ethan Hunt. Tis crazy!

@David_Hahn It's easy to dismiss the Yo Gabba Gabba tv show, until you are singing "Don't Bite Your Friends" 3 days later while driving alone.
