- Brad Meltzer kicked off his campaign to save the "Superman House," and we showed off some beautiful exclusive art from the charity auction.

- Stan The Man wants to see a Dr. Strange movie, and who are we to deny him?

- Nic Cage had plenty to say in terms of his upcoming comic book flicks, first about the over-the-top violence in "Kick-Ass"...

- ...and then the return of "Ghost Rider" to the big screen.

- We showed off an exclusive preview of DC/WildStorm's "Fringe" tie-in comic, and spoke with the cast and crew about the highly-anticipated TV series.

- We spoke with "Buckaroo Banzai" creator Earl Mac Rauch about his slate of "Buckaroo Banzai" comics.
