Comics artist Michael Netzer now wants to save ALL the superheroes.

"I turn again to Paul Levitz, Dan DiDio and the entire family of DC
Comics editors, with a plea to learn from the profound lesson which
the untimely departure of Heath Ledger teaches us about the promotion
and marketing of our real-life heroes... and to apply the same measure
of insight into the plans that DC Comic is making for the promotion
and marketing of its fictional heroes. The heroes that are loved and
heartfelt by comics lovers as themselves being quite real in their
relevance to our own world. The heroes that have also become well
rooted in our hearts, and in the hearts of comics fandom worldwide."


Denise Richards is the "worst Bond girl ever," a new survey says.

The actress took the top spot in a poll by Entertainment Weekly for her turn as Pierce Brosnan's love interest Dr. Christmas Jones in 1999's The World Is Not Enough.

Tanya Roberts (A View To A Kill) and Corinne Clery (Moonraker) finished second and third respectively.

Ursula Andress was voted the best Bond girl for her iconic portrayal of Honey Ryder in Dr No, followed by Honor Blackman (Goldfinger) and Diana Rigg (On Her Majesty's Secret Service).

What this says to me, though, is that a Bond girl is only as good as her Bond movie. And there hasn't been a good one (girl or movie) in a long, long time.
