Link roundup

1. Sam Weber is giving away a copy of the edition of Dune he illustrated.

2. "Remember that pair of strange recent tweets from Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen suggesting that the two ESPN NFL insiders would be staying in on New Year’s Eve to watch the college football playoff and eat Domino’s Pizza? They were, indeed, part of an ad campaign."

ESPN says this is all a mistake and that future tweets associated with Domino’s ad buy with the network will be compliant with federal law.
3. "Lumosity to Pay $2 Million to Settle FTC Deceptive Advertising Charges for Its “Brain Training” Program"
“Lumosity preyed on consumers’ fears about age-related cognitive decline, suggesting their games could stave off memory loss, dementia, and even Alzheimer’s disease,” said Jessica Rich, Director of the FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection. “But Lumosity simply did not have the science to back up its ads.”
4. Funko Captain America Civil War toys are available for preorder (and give a good look at Crossbones and Black Panther).
