Conan"Conan the Barbarian" may attract some audience members based solely on its bare-chested sword fights and monsters this week. For Matt Fraction, however, the key selling point seems to be Morgan Freeman's voice (or that of someone who sounds suspiciously similar to Freeman).

Joe Hill, meanwhile, dug BBC America's new spy show "The Hours." His micro-review, a hint about a change in "Batman Beyond" and a tease from Fred Van Lente about a new project he's working on piqued our interest in the feed this morning and made the retweet list.

And I wasn't allowed to talk about it and it was driving me crazy. Only a couple of people besides me knew about it and I just wanted to climb up to the rooftop and scream about it for the last two months." Read More...
