Showing at the Cartoon Art Museum through June 6. $2-6
From SF Weekly:
Batman is many things to many people: hero, gay icon, debonair billionaire, foiler of world-domination plans. He's also an historical figure suitable for course credit and maybe the guy who prevented you from being slowly lowered into that vat of hot oil. To artists, however, he’s often a blank slate, ready to be re-invented into the caped crusader of their choosing. At the exhibit “Batman: Yesterday and Tomorrow,” we get to see the work of six of the most famous side by side. There’s Bob Kane and Bill Finger, the original 1939 artists; Neal Adams, who redefined the character in the 1970s; the legendary Frank Miller; Pepe Moreno, responsible for the first computer-generated Batman graphic novel; and Paul Pope, who puts Batman in 2039. The exhibit also features a selection of Batman manga, a ‘60s style that didn’t get noticed in the U.S. until 2008, thanks to a book by Chip Kidd.

"Distended abdomen" as the priest claims, or does this Jesus on a crucifix have a really large penis? Some churchgoers at St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church in Oklahoma think the latter, and have subsequently left the church.
I'm pretty sure it's a cock.

I've had a life-long crush on Kirsten Dunst that started at 12; in essence it is she who can be credited with awakening my young sexuality. Anyways, a decade after the release of Jumanji, and she is still quite busy.
She is set to star in Lars von Triers' latest sci-fi thriller "Melancholia", which is set to film in southern Sweden July through September.
She also co-wrote and directed a short film, Bastard, which will premier at the Tribeca Film Fest and was just accepted into the prestigious Cannes film festival in France.

This 30-year-old (white) man was recently arrested for donning a black mask called "The Player" and robbing five banks.
Can I get a WTF?
Speaking of WTF and bank robbery, a 60-70 year old man has been robbing banks in SoCal since last August.
