RIP Jim Henson and Other Links

Today marks the 22nd anniversary of the passing of Jim Henson.  Check out my husband’s post about his 1st trip to Leland, MS, Jim’s birthplace, with our friend and puppeteer Kevin Williams.  Together, they took this picture that is found all over the interwebs (usually uncredited & often defaced, but that’s another rant for another day.)

In happier news, today is Yvonne Craig’s birthday.  The original Barbara Gordon is 75 years old.  Happy Birthday!

In other happy news, the Reading With Pictures Kickstarter campaign has exceeded its goal of $65,000 to publish The Graphic Textbook.  Reading With Pictures, founded by our friend Josh Elder, is committed to getting comics into classrooms as educational tools.  It’s a fantastic organization, and it’s not too late to contribute.
