Using the web to its fullest potential, an online poster for the upcoming Terminator: Salvation has appeared on aintitcool.com.
Appearing at this past weekend’s Firefly con in Burbank, QMX has released a double-sided map of the ‘Verse for Firefly/Serenity fans: Where in the ‘Verse is (Carmen) Miranda?
And some British archaeologists search for the facts while watching the Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull DVD.
Not sure how this one slipped under the radar, other than the fact that we were too busy re-watching Dr. Horrible… Last month’s Myspace Dark Horse Presents included a Serenity comic one-shot, entitled “The Other Half”. Once again, Mal learns that jobs are never as simple as they are supposed to be. Check it out at Issue 13 of Myspace Dark Horse Presents
Once you scroll past stories like ‘China Withdraws from Tibet, with Apologies,’ ‘Darfur peace process well underway,’ and ‘Big Three Unveil Emissions-Free Lineup’ on this Google News spoof, there’s also some good news for Serenity, Harry Potter, and Star Wars fans.

Stephen Brust has released My Own Kind of Freedom, an unauthorized Firefly novel, on his web site for download. (via)

The California Browncoats and Adam Baldwin, who played Jayne Cobb on “Firefly” and “Serenity”, are auctioning off shirts worn by Adam Baldwin in the filming of the TV series and movie. There are 13 different shirts being auctioned, and proceeds from the sales of these screen-worn costumes will go to Adam’s charity of choice, the Marine Corps Law Enforcement Foundation.
