"Emily didn't look strange. She looked ... uncannily familiar."

Whoa. I was sad to see the shake-up over at (where I get 80% of my comics and nerd-culture news), but the new staff has certainly convinced me that they can do the job. To wit, Jeff Trexler's post, "This week in copyright."

First, I learn that the cruel reign of the Bratz may be at an end.

Then, comes the even more shocking revelation about Emily the Strange. I don't think any more commentary is needed, other than to say that the top image is from the 1978 picture book, Nate the Great Goes Undercover, by Marjorie Weinman Sharmat and Marc Simont.

Be sure to read the rest of the commentary over at the appropriately named blog, You Thought We Wouldn't Notice.

UPDATE: I now see that everyone and their mother had already blogged about this. Oh, well. No scoop to speak of. I guess that's what happens when you're on Pacific time.

Hey, did you all hear about the OJ Simpson trial sentencing ...?

Thanks for the good words, however ephemeral!

Outside of the Super-lawsuits, I tend not to break news--my role is more to provide in-depth legal analysis, which can take a little extra time. If there are any topics you'd find interesting, don't hesitate to let me know!
