Thanks Boing Boing for alerting us to these free Kindle collections of the complete Conan and complete Sherlock Holmes.

Via special arrangement with the Will Eisner Estate, the Spirit is now appearing in the Dick Tracy comic strip, which is illustrated by comics great Joe Staton. It's a win-win-win. I hope this get published in book form eventually. Thanks, Rip, for the heads up.

Good news! I you have a 1978 DC Comics calendar (which I do), it'll work for 2017, too. Or, if you prefer just Batman or Spider-Man.

Benedict Cumberbatch apparently shares a common ancestor with Sherlock Holmes creator Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

Cumberbatch, 40, and the late Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, who died in 1930, were 16th cousins, twice removed, according to the website Ancestry.com.
