Darkseid Minus the New Gods (link roundup)

Darkseid's pretty sad when everything else is removed from his panels. More strips here. Via.

And a few more links:

1. Nature is freaky. The Blue Butterfly starts life as a caterpillar, which impersonate immature red ants, secreting chemicals and making noises that convince the ants that it's a wayward grub. The ants carry the caterpillar to their underground homes and "keep looking after them even though the adopted intruders gobble ant grubs for 10 months before forming a chrysalis and flying away as adult butterflies."

2. How the NY Times and Wikipedia teamed up to keep the David Rohde's kidnapping a secret. Via.

3. Tips for how a indie video game developers can promote their games (much of the advice applies just as well to artists). Via.

4. So, what kind of kaiju will be revealed when NASA triggers "a six-mile-high explosion that scientists hope will confirm the presence of water?" Via.
