A WALKING DEAD SHOCKER
Massive spoiler warning. Warning. Warning. The Twitterverse literally exploded in rage and sorrow Sunday night as fans watched in horror as Glen apparently got the heave-ho, eaten alive by a horde of hungry zombies. My group of Dead Heads were STUNNED, some in the group openly weeping for Glen. But did he REALLY die? There’s a controversy raging across the internet. Was it Glen’s guts being pulled out, or did those entrails belong to Nicholaus, who had just blown his brains out and fallen ON TOP of Glen as they both tumbled to the ground? These articles give a good back-and-forth on the topic. Our opinion: We’re holding out hope.
EMPIRE MAGAZINE FEATURE’S JARED LETO’S JOKER — HE’S PURE NUTS

SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON JOBS AVAILABLE; HOTEL WARS FOR SDCC ROOMS
As of right now, the folks who run San Diego Comic-Con are only looking for a senior accountant, but keep this link handy if you think you might want to work for the most influential comics and popular arts festival in the country (New York is close on your tail, though). There’s also an interesting article about how SDCC is trying to hold down hotel costs while many locals are renting out their rooms at super-high rates (gouging us).
GHOST-HUNTING AND WILLIAM SHATNER AT STAN LEE’S COMIKAZE THIS WEEKEND!
Los Angeles hosts the fifth Stan Lee’s Comikaze this coming weekend, promising over 60,000 attendees and a stellar lineup of special guests. There’s too much to review everything, but suffice it to say that Stan Lee and William Shatner are sharing the stage Sunday (if both their egos can fit). ‘Nuff said! Also, check out the chance to do some real ghost-hunting with celebrity ghost hunters (it is Halloween week, after all). Pretty cool stuff. Check it all out below.
