Toronto Comics Art Festival posters (link roundup)

Gallery of Toronto Comics Art Festival posters through the years (including one by James Jean). Via.

And a few more links:

1. From Tucker Stone's weekly tv reviews:

The best part of the British version of Law & Order is the opening line, because the voice-over guy says "crown prosecutor" instead of "district attorney", and that confuses the American brain into thinking that one has fallen into a parallel universe . . . . And then the credits roll, and it gets worse, because the crown prosecutor is shown wearing those robes and those wigs that British people make their lawyers wear out of some thousand year old grudge, and it's just--nobody can watch that. Seriously, nobody can watch that. It's horrible. So turn it off, and wait for the day that Dick Wolf gets sociopathic enough to produce a Law & Order spin off set in some former Eastern Bloc country.
2. A handy resource for The Golden Rule in most of the world's major religions.

3. Google will apparently start directly selling a new Android phone called "Nexus One." Which makes this a good time to repost this: San Francisco mayoral candidates (including Gavin Newsom) being subjected to the Voight-Kampff Test.
