Mark Millar s Kick-Ass isn t just making a return—it s doing so without its main character, Dave Lizewski, in the Kick-Ass role.Revealed by The Hollywood Reporter, the new Kick-Ass monthly series will feature an entirely new supporting cast, and won t be set in New York—but the biggest change about the series will be the fact that the person behind Kick-Ass green-and-yellow mask will be an African-American woman although no further details about her have been released yet .Millar—who will write the first arc of the series alongside John Romita Jr. on art, before handing over the reigns to writer Daniel Way—wants to make Kick-Ass a legacy comic, where the story comes before the identity of whoever is in the costume:Kick-Ass is like James Bond or Doctor Who where with a new face and a new situation and it suddenly feels very exciting.Every four volumes or so I want a different person in the mask.Makes sense, especially as, as Miller hinted at, this isn t the first time he s returned to the series after it originally ended in 2010; he spearheaded both a Kick-Ass 2 ongoing and a Kick-Ass 3 miniseries between 2010 and 2013.The next volume of Kick-Ass begins in January 2017—alongside the first issue of a new ongoing Hit Girl series from Millar and Rafael Albuquerque.

This entire nearly hour-long conversation between writing luminaries George R. R. Martin and Stephen King is well worth listening to in its entirety, but before that: skip to around 50:08 and hear Martin ask the one question he s always wanted to put to King.It s worth it.The interview comes from a recent event in Albuquerque, New Mexico that s been recently made available online, and Martin s demand to know how King writes so many books, so fast isn t just cute—especially considering Martin s own infamous writing pace when it comes to A Song of Ice and Fire—but a really interesting insight into how the two writers approach their work ethic.King just writes and writes and writes, regardless of if it ll end up being cut or not.Martin, on the other hand, prefers to take his time.Via EW
Retail storesBest Buy and GameStop are Sony s initial retail partners for the preview program, and since both retailers have stores in every major metropolitan area in the country, it shouldn t be too difficult to find one within driving distance.Hours are also limited: because of the highly personal nature of the hardware, demonstrations will only be available when Sony staff members are on site at specific times and dates, often only a sliver of the store s operating hours.A $500 PlayStation VR bundle, including the PlayStation VR Worlds game, two Move controllers, and a PlayStation Camera add-on is already being sold as a pre-order.A more robust version of the PlayStation 4 called the PS4 Neo has been confirmed by Sony, but release and technical information has not been verified.If you don t see a time or date that you can manage at the moment, don t worry, the program will continue for several months at least, and there will be more demonstrations beyond the currently-posted dates.The remaining tour dates are as follows:EventDatesCity, StateSummerfestJune 29 – July 3Milwaukee, WIMLB ASG FanfestJuly 8 – 12San Diego, CAJamboree In the HillsJuly 14 – 17Belmont, OHSioux Falls Air ShowJuly 23 – 24Sioux Falls, SDHARD Summer Music FestJuly 29 – 31Los Angeles, CAMusikfestAugust 5 – 14Bethlehem, PATBAAugust 19 – 21TBAAugust 27 – 28BumbershootSeptember 2 – 4Seattle, WAGameStop EXPOSeptember 11 – 14Anaheim, CAKAABOO Del MarSeptember 16 – 18San Diego, CATBASeptember 23 – 25TBASeptember 30 – October 2International Balloon FiestaOctober 5 – 9Albuquerque, NMTBAOctober 22 – 23TBAOctober 28 – 30TBANovember 4 – 6TBANovember 11 – 13More dates may be posted as the summer continues – there are large gaps in the tour calendar at the time of writing.

Our fate is written in the stars, so the old stories go.The idea stems from a subtle effect of quantum physics demonstrated by the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen EPR experiment.The statistical behavior of a quantum system is governed by the laws of quantum theory, but the specific outcome of a particular measurement is indefinite until it s actually performed.One of the more subtle effects related to this property is known as entanglement, when two quantum objects have some kind of connection that allows you to gain information about object A by only interacting with object B.As a basic example, suppose I took a pair of shoes and sent one shoe to my brother in Cleveland, and the other to my sister in Albuquerque.Knowing what a prankster I am, when my sister opens the package and finds a left shoe, she immediately knows her brother was sent the right one.
