Next week's Batman and Red Robin #19 (the temporary re-title is explained later) introduces a new but familiar name to Batman fans to New 52 continuity, but will she be the new Robin?

Carrie Kelley - the young, female Robin from Frank Miller's 1986 graphic novel The Dark Knight Returns - is joining DC Comics’ official New 52 canon.

I would scoff, but I did just pay $10 to see the remake of Evil Dead.

Is it any good? I just now finished watching [REC] 1, 2, and 3 (1 and 2 are ok, 3 is a turd).

Could have been worse. Slow and mostly took itself overly serious. It was good when the blood finally started spraying, and there were some cute references to the originals. As a standalone movie, it was probably better than the first one, but certainly not as good as Evil Dead II or Army of Darkness.

I've only seen the first [REC] and the American remake, Quarantine. I thought the coolest thing about them was the robotic camera rig (seen in the DVD bonus footage). All that automation put in place just to simulate handheld shaky-cam. So bizarre.
