The extraction of the trapped miners in Chile produced plenty of humor to go along with the celebration in the Twitter Report feed. Meanwhile, Mark Millar's just happy they'll be able to read his new book.
Bryan Lee O'Malley was a little less joyful picking apart newly released looks at "Sonic the Hedgehog 4," though Jonathan Hickman found something to be happy about in his "Fantastic Four" sales numbers from Azerbaijan. Check out how well it's doing down below along with a Ron Marz micro-review of "Jennifer's Body."
