Pop culture roundup: Jaime Hernandez; Hot Toys Black Widow; Ringo Starr;

Pretty nice: A gallery of Jaime Hernandez illustrations for the New Yorker.

Hot Toys has unveiled another of its uncannily realistic action figures: An Avengers movie version of Black Widow. It's kinda creepy how accurate these things look.

Ringo Starr will voice a role and sing a song on a new Powerpuff Girls cartoon series.
Very interestingly, former Beatle Ringo Starr will appear in the episode and perform an original song titled “I Wish I Was A Powerpuff Girl.” He’ll also play “Townsville’s most famous flamboyant mathematician Fibonacci Sequins.”

Turns out Dr. Seuss was a cat in the hat, himself.
...the real Dr. Seuss, Theodor Seuss Geisel, was a hat lover himself. He collected hundreds of them, plumed, beribboned and spiked, and kept them in a closet hidden behind a bookcase in his home in the La Jolla section of San Diego. He incorporated them into his personal paintings, his advertising work and his books. He even insisted that guests to his home don the most elaborate ones he could find.
